Enjoying a Slice of Sacha Tiramisu

Tiramisu. Yum Yum tiramisu. Besides enjoying a slice of that heaven, this eye shadow quad from Sacha Cosmetics is yummy too!
In case you’re wondering what is tiramisu, it is basically a dessert that looks like a cake. It’s layered with ladyfingers usually dipped in coffee, mascarpone cheese mixture and cocoa powder. The mascarpone cheese mixture may consist of egg yolks, sugar and mascarpone cheese. Yummy! 
Sacha has improved the look of their packaging with the black on the outside of their eye-shadow cases.  Even though there is no mirror in this quad, the back of the case is in silver, very reflective and can act like one.
So let’s see how this translates into Sacha naming this eye shadow quad. So there are two cream coloured shadows in this quad which may represent the two main elements of tiramisu, the mascarpone cheese and the ladyfingers. There is one yellow shade representing the egg yolks and then the rich brown colour for the cocoa powder or maybe the coffee. Ok now I get the quad name.
They colours are nicely pigmented, smooth and buttery to apply. This impressed me a lot since I know a lot of other Sacha eye shadow users have complained about the shadows being hard and you have to dig into them to get the colour. This was definitely not my experience here. The only downside I experienced with these shadows was the fallout and I did feel like I had to pack on the yellow shade to get the intense colour that I wanted.
Nevertheless I made them work for me and this is a simple eye look I created. Use the bottom cream colour from the inner corner of eye and tear duct, blending in the middle of the eyelid with the yellow shade and then finally the brown to the outer V blended into the crease. Use the top cream colour which has shimmer but a matte finish as the highlight since the other 3 shades are all very shimmery. Bring some brown and yellow under the lower lash line as well. 
Would you like to share some tiramisu and some good coffee with me? Enjoy!
Enjoying Tiramisu!
