Calvin Klein Merlot Eye Shadow

I love eye shadows more than any other beauty product. It was the first thing I ever tried to use makeup-wise when I was a teenager. Granted back then it was just a smear of blue all over the eyes from some cheap gift set I'd picked up! However, now with money of my own and some makeup savvy, I know which colours work with my eyes and which ones need to stay the hell away from.

This little number from Calvin Klein is so pretty! I have this mono shadow in a few copper shades, but this one is a nice dark purple and I love it. I picked this up from Fragrance Direct for £1.99. Can't complain about that price tag - considering it retails at nearly £14 usually!

I wore it for the first time the other day, and I was really impressed with it. It's not as dark on the eyelids as it is in the palette, so it would take a little building up to get that strong colour, but a few dustings of this worked a treat for me. It's really pigmented and not crumbly like some eye shadows, so this is going to last a while.

It has a subtle shimmer to it, so can be worn for either day or night and with more applications, you could go for a a really vampy look. This isn't normally a shade I'd go for in Autumn, but it's just so pretty that I can't resist it!

Have you tried this shade or any of the other Calvin Klein shadows? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
