I first showed you the Julie Hewett Hue in Mystere in this post. It's taken quite a few uses for me to feel confident about writing a review as there are definitely pluses and minuses to this cream eyeshadow.
I'll get the negatives out of the way first. The cream has quite a dry formula so it takes a bit of effort to pick up the colour from the pot. I have tried both finger and brush to apply and I prefer to use my fingertip as the warmth helps to pick it up. Although it looks opaque in the swatch, on my lids it is always quite sheer and requires a bit of layering. This can be a little tricky if you're using a fingertip. Finally, despite being quite dry in texture, I find it is prone to creasing. I get a couple of hours wear with an eye primer before I see light creasing.
All of this aside, I do like using Mystere and pick it out often as it is a lovely colour and I like the convenience of a cream eyeshadow when I'm in a rush. The positives definitely outweigh the negatives for me but whether or not this is true for you will depend on your stance on creasing etc.
I really like the silvery, slightly metallic touch to this taupe. The sheer effect on the lids is nice if you're after just a wash of colour and I like this best with a slick of eyeliner (I've used navy as well as the dark brown I used above). You could of course use this as a base for eyeshadow too.
The Julie Hewett Hue eyeshadows are available in both pot and pan form. I bought this from Cocktail Cosmetics but unfortunately Mystere is no longer in stock. Julie Hewett products are also available from Mise Beauty where the Hue pots cost £13.
