I'm sure you all read in my previous review that I was recently contacted by First Light about trying some of their products. I have split the review up into three parts so as not to make it too long.

You can check out the review I did on the Mineral Blushes here.

First Light Mineral Eyeshadow and Eye Light:






What www.firstlightcosmetics.com say about their Mineral Eye Shadows:
Our 100% mineral shadows are fresh, fun and very dynamic! Use them as all over shadows or as highlighters on brows or cheeks. Blend colours together to create your own unique style or mix with water to use as eyeliner. First Light eye shadows come in 2 formulations; our creamy “soft sheen” gives a rich and smooth finish, whilst our “glimmer” formula provides a high intensity sheen and the wow factor!

Colbat Sea is described on the site as a bright shimmering blue/green turquoise. I think that describes the colour perfectly. It's very 'colour shifting'. It looks more blue in these photos but when you team it with other green shadows, like I did in this FOTD, it appears more green. When first swatched or applied to the lid it can appear very sheer but you can build up the intensity. It's quite shimmery but not overly glittery. It gives the shadow a frost like finish. I haven't tried foiling this yet as I haven't quite mastered the technique but when I do, I shall report back with how well that works. This is a colour I actually really like and I'm glad I have it in my collection.

What www.firstlightcosmetics.com say about their Eye Light:
This soft, light emitting loose powder is spectacular for concealing puffiness, redness and dark circles while diminishing signs of fatigue. Works over the lids or on the sensitive under eye area to brighten and conceal. Perfect for late nights and early mornings!

At the moment I am undecided on this and I've tried it a few times. I first tried applying it over Urban Decay's Primer Potion. Off I went to work and not more then an hour later I had serious creasing. Now this never happens when I use UDPP. So putting it over the top didn't work. I don't find it much makes much of a difference under primer either. I need to try this some other ways. Under foundation/concealer. Anyone got any tips?
