This shade was an extra that was sent to me with my first Darling Girl order, and it could quite possibly be one of my favorites from the brand. This is the kind of shade that makes me, someone who is super crappy at working with loose pigment eyeshadows, feel the need to put them into my daily rotation. That is saying something!!
Ladyhawke is applied dry on the left and wet on the right. Darling Girl Cosmetics describes the shade as a "light grayed brown with shifts from golden green to blue to violet shifts." The description is actually pretty spot on as the shade has a taupey gray base with incredibly strong duochrome shifts. I wore this over a brown, super smoky base and this shade looked incredible! While the shift is quite apparent when applied on it's own, it really sings over a darker base. It was incredibly multidimensional. It isn't one of those shades that needs to be foiled to show the duochrome finish, and though as you can see above that applying it wet does bring out the sheen a touch more, it doesn't 100% need it.
Application of this shade was a breeze. I literally just took one of my Urban Decay Good Karma shadow brush, picked up a bit of product and pat in on the lid. Bing, bang, boom. Done. Super easy and it looked like I spent a whole lot of time on it.
- Easy application.
- Unique shade.
- Strong duochrome.
- Very little fallout.
- I have none!
Ladyhawke was not a shade that I was searching for to add to my stash, but just like I did with Darling Girl's Yes, Virginia blush, I will be stocking up on this shade - and hopefully before I fly through the sample I have of it!
10/10 - I highly recommend this shade!
