I previously purchased single eyeshadows from RBR in Bejeweled Skylark and Abyssinian Catbird. I have enjoyed using those colors and love the staying power and pigmentation they have. I decided this time around to try out one of the long lasting Duo Eye Shadows in A Major – fis Minor. RBR description of their shadows is “Discover a new powder eye shadow with an astonishing lightweight, creamy touch and unprecedented adherence. This formula creates pure dynamic iridescence while it maintains second skin effect. It has extended 8-hour wear that will stay perfect and look freshly applied all day. Orange-derived Flavonoid improves blood microcirculation, enhances luminosity and serves as free radicals scavenger.”
This duo is describes as “Palest golden wheat, paired with a delicately frosted muted mauve-brown with a subtle gold accent” This is an excellent description of these shades. They are shimmery, but the shimmer is more of a sheen, not frosty what so ever. The texture is just as buttery soft and smooth as the single eyeshadows, but I find this duo a little less pigmented, which was kind of a bummer. The pale golden beige shade is hard to see on my lids but it does give a beautiful soft glow. Overall, a great pairing for an everyday neutral eye and is perfect for creating a casual evening look, smoked out with a little black eyeliner.
