Edward Bess Ultra Luminous Eyeshadow in Intimate

i ordered some eyeshadows by Edward Bess on, here i want to show you the Ultra Luminous Eyeshadow in Intimate. this is one of the more well known shades from his well arranged selection and also a colour right up my alley, so i definitely wanted to try it.

this is what is said about the line on
"This range of eyeshadows is nice and simple, with 6 wearable shades ranging from the Nude base that can be used as a primer or a little 'pick-me up' for when your popping out to the shops, through to the darker and more dramatic browns and greys.
This is what Edward says about his eyeshadows:
'Dress the eyes in luminous color incredibly smooth to the touch. Ultra rich texture adds depth and dimension. Sleek designer compact complete with applicator and mirror'.

Edward Bess is a stunning, sexy new make-up line, made up of wearable shades, luxurious formulas and simple, design led packaging. Edward started his career as a successful male model, spending his time between London & New York. In 2006, he decided to focus fully on developing his cosmetic line, concentrating on bringing to life his vision of female beauty. Edward’s gentle nature combined with his extremely qualitative products has insured the brand has become an instant success.  [...]

the eyeshadow contains 2g and costs 22£/25.95€.
the pure and elegant compact comes in a thick and well made suede pouch, it contains a small sponge tip applicator and a little mirror.
Intimate is a colour that's hard to describe and will definitely look different on everyone depending on skintone, eye colour etc. in the pan it's an earthy, almost khaki brown. when swatched it appears like a classic taupe and finally applied, it's a mixture of both, a warm brownish taupe with silky pearly sheen. i'm quite impressed with Edward Bess' texture, it's light and silky and applies soft and transparent but is quickly buildable to an opaque result. it blends out so beautifully (!) and lasts all day on my oily lids without creasing but retaining a soft and light appearance. i love it for a soft smokey haze for everyday but also and especially as a blending colour for dark and intense smokey eyes because it sheers out so well.

  1. Hi Trang, I hope you're keeping well. :)
    How does Intimate compare with RBR Solstice Halcyon? I've yet to purchase my first taupe, and I'm debating between these two.
