Read on for the step-by-step and my gushing over the latest D27 in my growing collection.
Deciding on just ONE color to get from the I Nuovi D27 range can be more challenging than voting for the next political party. There are so many colors to choose from and almost all of them are pretty. After about 3 sets of swatches, I finally decided on Spellbound which caught my eye from day one but surpassed me for being "yet another brown". If I wasn't biased towards Velvet and Charcoal, I'd say that this is my favorite color so far.
Spellbound is basically a bronzed brown with a good amount of bronze shimmer so what you get is not metallic or frosty but proper shimmer. This color will look good on anyone and it can easily be matched to any other color. The only reason that I'm not using this much these days is because I don't want to make my other eyeshadows feel abandoned. With that said, if you're considering to get a D27, make this your first color choice. I assure you that you won't go wrong.
See me using this color here, here and here.
We'll need to get the good stuff out of the funky-looking plastic. First step, peel off the label and stick it onto the back of the compact.
Then, use something pointy (I used a pair of forceps) to push the pan out. See that little hole there? If you're having difficulty, try heating up the base of the pan with a lighter to loosen up the glue bond.
Next, cut out a magnetic sheet or you can use any old magnet that fits, and stick it to the back of the pan with double sided tape. This way you can easily pop the pan in and out of the compact.
Finally, pop it into the pan and you're good to go! My brain went missing and UHU-glued down Velvet and Charcoal. Don't do that, k? Do the magnet thing.
