Quite a while ago I picked up a Smashbox eye shadow in Flamingo from Apothica.

Flamingo is described as a coral pink with soft shimmer.

To me it reads closer to a true coral shade with gold shimmer.

However, when you glance at the color from an angle, you can see a hint of coral-pink. This color works really well as a color was on the lid and crease.

The Website Claims:
It gives your eyes a shimmering color enhancement without any creasing or flaking. Dimethicone gives a smooth finish. Vitamin E fights free-radical damage. Silica leaves a sheen.

The Ingredients are:
Zinc Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Dimethicone, Talc, Boron Nitride, Vinyl Dimethicone Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Corn Starch, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lauroyl Lysine, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Disodium EDTA, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Isopentyldiol

Price:
$15.80 for .06 oz. (for comparison MAC is .05 oz for $14.50)

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes. As long as I wear an eye shadow primer, it lasts on me all day. It doesn’t flake and it’s one of those fabulous eye shadow colors that looks like you’re wearing 3 colors at once. It’s multidimensional and gorgeous.

Would I purchase again?
Yes. I like this color, and I like the texture and finish. I’d definitely try another color from Smashbox if one caught my attention. This was my first Smashbox eye shadow and I don’t think it will be my last. This is definitely a nice color for spring or summer.

Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
