Magie Deco Fairy Eyes in Cerulean Spray (BL951)
マジーデコのフェアリーアイズはアイライナーとアイシャドウとして使われるようなリキッドアイカラーで１６色あります。先週リリースされたフェアリーアイズのカラーはIlluminate Bay (BE352)、 Frozen Sunshine (YE550)とCerulean Spray (BL951)でした。私は夏のルック「スプラッシュクールネス」に使われたCerulean Sprayを手に入れました。
Magie Deco's Fairy Eyes is a liquid eye color that can be used as both an eyeliner and eyeshadow and comes in sixteen different shades. The Fairy Eyes colors released last week include Illuminate Bay (BE352), Frozen Sunshine (YE550), and Cerulean Spray (BL951). Cerulean Spray, the shade I picked up, was used to complete Magie Deco's "Splash Coolness" look for the summer.
Fairy Eyes takes some skill to apply correctly. The first time I tried to apply the liquid, I got it all over my eyelashes. The key is to get a small amount of liquid on the brush and not to draw it too close to the bottom of the lid. The liquid dries fairly quickly but you do have to be careful not to get it everywhere. On the eyes, the Cerulean Spray color closely resembles what is presented on Magie Deco's website and how it looks in the bottle (as you can see in the above picture). It is a beautiful light blue with a very pearly finish and blue and green shimmer. It is a color that will really stand out on darker skin tones but will still look lovely on lighter skin tones, too. It also works very well with the new Shadow Brilliance in Soda Pop. If the blue shade is too bright or dazzling for you, you can also smudge the the liquid to create a sparkly, white cream eyeshadow. My positive experience with Fairy Eyes has left me wanting to try out other Fair Eyes Shades and the price of 2,625 yen including tax is comparable to cream shadows and liquid eyeliners from other department store brands. If you have not had a chance to try Magie Deco's Fairy Eyes, you should consider making it your next purchase.
