Emite – Micronized Eyeshadow in Spread Your Nectar
This post may contain affiliate links.
I received this Micronized Eyeshadow in Spread Your Nectar in my November Glossybox, but it’s just taken me a while to get round to reviewing it. It’s from Swedish brand Emite, and I’ve already reviewed their Professional Eyelash Curler here.
I was initially a bit disappointed with it when I received it as the perspex window in the lid is a bit loose, although this doesn’t have a negative effect on the make-up itself.
Micronized Eyeshadow is free from oil, nickel, paraben and perfume, neither is it tested on animals. Emite suggest it as an excellent choice for lens wearers or those with sensitive eyes. I’ve been doing some research into what ‘micronized’ actually means, it’s to do with the way that the particles are ground down to make the eyeshadow powder, and basically the particles in this eyeshadow have been ground down much more than particles in other eyeshadows. This means that the Micronized Eyeshadow applies smoothly to ‘create an even and fine result’.
Spread Your Nectar is a lovely pale champagne colour, with a pinky-golden hue. It’s very pale and is an ideal shade for an all-over-the-eye base wash for other shades or it could also be used as a highlighter just on the brow bone. It applies really smoothly and easily too, and although I think it does look quite matt and chalky when in the palette it looks satin smooth when on the skin and it doesn’t crease. There is quite a bit of powder drop off when applying it though, probably because the particles are so small, so you may need to do a bit of tidying up underneath the eye once you have applied this shadow.
The above image shows what Spread Your Nectar looks like when used as a colour wash all over the eyelid and right up to the brow. I wouldn’t normally leave my eyes so bare, generally I would then apply another darker colour over the eyelid, but this image is just to show how the Micronized Eyeshadow looks when on its own. Apologies for the rather dishevelled eyebrow too!
Micronized Eyeshadow in Spread Your Nectar is priced at 170 Swedish Krona (around £16) so it’s not cheap but this particular shade is a really multi-use product. I’m struggling to find anywhere in the UK that is yet to sell Emite products, but it’s worth keeping an eye on Ebay and Amazon as they occasionally have them for sale. If you check out Emite’s website you can see their full range of make-up products, although I don’t think they currently ship to the UK – and you will need to select the English language at the top of the page as it’s all in Swedish!
