When you travel, do you travel for the food, music, sights, slower pace of life or all of that altogether? Of course it’s everything! I made sure to pack some Agnès B makeup from Europe before heading home to sunny Singapore last December. As I’ve never tried this brand of eyeshadows before – and it’s not available on our island – I practised caution and got only a couple of items: the Agnès B Monobulle Eyeshadow in H104 Bronze Allegro and eyeliner in another wearable shade.
New makeup! How exciting. I must say I quite like the colour of Bronze Allegro. The shadow itself is shimmery and smokey, great for nighttime wear. There is quite a bit of shimmer fallout in the first moments of wearing it, but once you clean those fallen glitter bits away, it stops. Even with the loss of glam bits, the shadow still holds enough shimmer to look fabulous. Under natural or soft lighting, it looks darker, while under strong, intense flash, the shimmer stands out a lot more.
The eyeshadow is a neutral toned kind of bronze, and any skin tone can wear it. It’s not so much brown or reddish but more dark, smokey. It stays on for hours on end with minimal smudging after 12 hours. It blends well but can do better in terms of colour payoff and intensity when applied with a dry brush. Overall, I’m quite satisfied with this shadow and will consider the other shades if I come across this brand again! Oh, if only they have palettes…
