Today I’m going to show you the Jane Iredale Eye Steppe goGreen which I was kindly sent to review. It contains five shades of pressed mineral eyeshadow which should suit people with green eyes: Allure, Iris, Sepia, Slate and Grape. I’ll start with the packaging which I absolutely love! It is nice and compact but folds out to reveal as many or as few layers as you want and there is a handy mirror in the lid for when you are out and about.
The colours themselves go well with each other and are shades I would choose myself if I were picking out just one colour (except maybe Grape?!). All of the colours have a slight amount of glitter threaded through, but it’s not over the top so they are fine to wear during the day. I’ve tried wearing all of the colours now and I really like them although I’m not entirely sure Grape suits me – I tend to stick to natural colours. I really like Allure which is just the right colour for my skin tone.
The colour stays put all day and doesn’t seem to crease at all, even after 12 hours wear. The colours aren’t as pigmented as some other brands but that’s fine with me as I’m not sure I can pull off really bold eye colours! Jane Iredale do the Eye Steppes in a few different colours; goBlue for blue eyes, goBrown for brown eyes, goCool for cool skin tones and goWarm for warm skin tones. I really like the look of the natural colours in the goWarm Steppe.
Jane Iredale is an American company so if you are there then you can buy the Eye Steppes for $56 from their website. If you are in the UK then there are a few different website selling Jane Iredale products. I’ve found the Eye Steppes on Look Fantastic for £39.95 (free delivery).
I am by no means an eyeshadow expert but I would go as far as to say that these are the best eyeshadows I’ve ever used! Has anyone else used these? What did you think?
