I ventured to my makeup expeditions starting with eye makeup. First it was plain kohl and then I wanted to try eye shadows. I bought a lot of eye shadows before I learnt how to use them properly. Initially I had a few misses but now I am pretty confident in wearing eye shadows on a daily basis. I use neutral ones mostly but at times I don’t mind a pop of color too on my eyes.
Today I am here with an eye shadow – Divine by Be a Bombshell.
Formula: A high pigmented long lasting formula for all day wear.
Bombshell Application: To use as an eyeliner wet the tip of your brush dip end into the shadow and apply on lash line. For base colors, blend shadow from lash line to brow bone with a wide shadow brush using gentle upward strokes. For accent colors, blend shade in the outer crease of your eye gently working inward. Gently blend base and accent colors together using light, feathery strokes. For highlighting gently brush under brow bone.
Bombshell Tip: To intensify your look use eyeliner, a base color, accent color, and a highlighter. Have fun creating many different looks from our bombshell assortment.
ABOUT THE SHADE
Divine – Baby Blue – Pale blue with shimmer
Great For: Accenting, base color, or highlighting.
PACKAGING & PRICE
I really like the packaging. It looks so much like a MAC single eye shadow. It comes in a black paper carton and the pan is also just like the black MAC eye shadow pan.
Price : $14 for 1.5 g. The shelf life is 12 months.
The shade is a frosty silvery blue which very closely resembles MAC “Suave Intentions” single eye shadow in shade and finish. I do not have the MAC one with me, so cannot compare both.
I have used a sheer wash of color on my eye lids using the eyeshadow Divine to get a pop of color on my lids.

5. Easy application and blending
6. Good staying power

THE ‘NAY’ FACTORS
1. Being of frosty finish it requires layering to build up the color
2. The application may not be even in the first go

Overall, this is a good product but since price being comparable to MAC I would obviously choose a MAC over this.
