Instructions: Matt eyeshadow is recommended for a natural or "nude" effect as well as an intense or "smoky eye" effect. The pleasant texture makes using it fresh and simple. Apply the lighter colour over the entire eyelid. Apply a medium intensity eyeshadow on the outer corner of the eye and under the brow. Finish with a thin line of dark eyeshadow along the contour of your eye.
ZAO Beauty tip: For an elongated, intense look, use a clear matt eyeshadow on the entire eyelid. Then apply a dark matt shade as eyeliner. From the inner corner of the eye, follow the curve of the upper eyelashes towards the outer corner. This will open up your eyes.

Zao Refillable Matt Eye Shadow (4 colours)
The Zao make-up range are made from natural, vegan and organic products, that are 100% cruelty free.
These eyeshadows are refillable, so you only replace the inside and keep the outside case. The refill is widely recyled. This is the best alternative I have found so far for plastic free make-up.
I don't really tend to wear eyeshadow except on special occasions and I already have some on the go, so one of my lovely testers offered to give me their review on the product instead. Here it is:
"I have very sensitive eyes that tend to water when I wear eye make up (I usually have to wear waterproof mascara otherwise I smudge). I have been wearing the nude eyeshadow every day for a week now and have not had any problems. If anything, I'd say my eyes water a little less, which might be because it is a natural product.
I also bought the Zao Blending Brush which I have been using to apply the eyeshadow and it goes on like a dream! I wouldn't use any other eyeshadow now. Not that it's important, but the eyeshadow itself looks really pretty in my make up bag. It's a very nice looking product. I'd like to expand the range of colours that I have when you get some new ones in."
My tester's rating: 10/10
