My friend K gifted me with my very own Erika F eyeshadow from Lancome. It has slowly become a cult classic with beauty junkies scrambling to get their hands on it.
What makes it so worthy of pillaging or plain old begging?
It is a mixture of olive green with gold flashes of fire. This might sound like I am describing MAC Sumptious Olive.
Once applied on the eye it gets a mushroom-ish taupe quality. The best smokey eyes I have ever accomplished was with this little eyeshadow. It seems to alternate between smoke and green throughout the course of a day.
It is everything and a bag of chips.
There is a catch to this review.
To locate an Erika F shadow is nearly an impossible quest. It is not available in the states and is a challenge to find in Europe.
Mine hails from Germany.
