Emerald Stone My Heart: Review and Swatch of Azade Eyeshadow in Emerald Stone

This is going to be a bit of a mean post for anyone who lives in the US. This is an eyeshadow I picked up while in Greece about a year ago, and I'm not sure how someone in the US would go about procuring this shade. So I apologize in advance, but I just love this eyeshadow so much I wanted to tell those who would have access to it about it. This eyeshadow is from a brand called Azade. It's not the brand they have called Maquilllage, it's the brand Azade. I have no idea why this is so. Anyway, this particular shade is called Emerald Stone, and it's beautiful.

I find the packaging on this to be a bit cheapy, but that's fine since it keeps costs down - I think this was around 5€. Plastic, but it doesn't seem like it would break easily. The lid snaps shut. This eyeshadow is a bright turquoise that has an almost-duochrome effect of green and blue. It reminds me of the ocean. It's shimmery, but not glittery. It's pretty well pigmented. Here's swatches:
One layer

Two layers

The formula of this eyeshadow is super smooth, and it applies really easily. It won't crease under eyeshadow primer, but it will without in a couple hours (although I have unusually oily lids, even with UDPP I sometimes get creasing). And the fading on this eyeshadow throughout the day, even without primer, is seriously nonexistent. It's still just as vibrant and fun at the end of the day as it was at the beginning.

Overall, I love this eyeshadow! I only use it on my lower lashline normally since it's quite bright, and I want to conserve it as I have no way of repurchasing when this runs out. The formula and color are just fabulous. I really am sorry for raving about this eyeshadow and having no way for you to purchase it. >.< But I just had to share my love for this eyeshadow!

I am still in Peru, I deeply apologize for the lack of posts in the past month (I was at debate camp for most of July and part of August, then I went straight to Peru after camp ended). This is the first time I have accessed a computer since August 3, my last post was written from my phone. Anyway, once I'm home, I have tons of posts to write and trip pictures to share with you!
Oh, and I have some REALLY exciting news. It was my birthday on July 30, and I got an SLR (the Canon Rebel T3). I was like fkjlsdfjklsdfjs. I can't even express my excitement...what this means for you guys is improved picture quality and shots that are more true to color. I love taking pictures, and it'll be amazing to finally do it with a decent camera (I usually use a point-and-shoot). I'm just sooooo excited and I hope you are all having great Tuesdays!
