It's Sunday: what better to post than a review of Sunday Riley Prismasilk Eye Color in Moon Dust? Sunday Riley is a relatively new cosmetics company that's found its way into the heart of luxury cosmetics lovers. I was lucky to win Sunday Riley Moon Dust prismasilk eye color from a Best Things in Beauty giveaway (see Charlestongirl's review of Moon Dust here). Today I'm sharing my review, photos, and swatches of Sunday Riley Moon Dust with you!
I was initially surprised at Sunday Riley's choice of packaging. Clear plastic lids are commonly seen on drugstore products. That said, it is convenient to see the color inside, and the construction is more luxe. As you can see below, the clear lid is actually a very thick slab-like lid. At one point while photographing, I saw the faintest little rainbow being cast on the shadow by a prismatic effect. The lid has the Sunday Riley 'SR' logo indented, while the shadow pan itself has Sunday Riley embossed in it. The texture of the shadow in the pan seems firm. Not much is kicked up when I run my brush on it, although product is coming off the surface.
Moon Dust goes on very sheerly, though it does spread evenly and well. It took me multiple brush strokes to build up the swatch below. When worn on my eyes, the color was practically invisible, save for a subtle lightening effect. The eyeshadow has a formula suitable for wet or dry use, so I used a wet brush. This worked quite well to build up the color to a soft white-grey. I could see where Moon Dust gets its name from!
Overall, I'm excited to have tried Sunday Riley Moon Dust. The subtle grey-white suits my taste and I do appreciate the effect of barely-there and brightening shadows. Though I do like Moon Dust, I would recommend a try-before-buy since the color does seem to be sheer, which is not everyone's cup of tea. Thank you to Charlestongirl for the wonderful giveaway and thanks for reading! Have you been eyeing or trying any Sunday Riley colors? Do you have a favorite off-white eyeshadow?
