Nilens Jord Eyeshadow + brush review


So, it's been both christmas and new years now, and I'm late when it comes to blogging. I'm sorry! Not only have I been very busy, but I got a new PC with windows 8 and seriously... how does it work?Well, I hate it, so if my post looks weird, please tell me, because they look strange on my PC.

Anyways, let's get going, merry christmas and happy new year to everyone! I'm going to review this eyeshadow and brush by the danish brand Nilens Jord. Nilens Jord (translation - kinda: Soil of the Nile, you know, the big river in Egypt) is known for making product without any unnecessary chemicals, and no parfum or parabeens. Sounds awesome right? It's a high quality brand, and it can be pricey, but it's worth it!

This eyeshadow is: Nilens Jord Matt 626 and it's a brown colour perfect for contouring, block-colours, and naturel looks. No shimmer or glitter at all. 

It contains:
Eye shadow
Sponge applicator

I bought this colour and brush for a single purpose only: Contouring. The brush is the perfect nose-contouring brush, and in that case, I don't care if it's for eyeshadows! The matte colour matches my skin perfectly and it naturel. Better than bronzer. But I like the colour on the lid too, it's very naturel and can be used for contouring the entire face. I contour my cheekbones, my chin (for the V-line face!), my nose, and whereever else I'd like to "edit" my face. 

The brush too has perfect shape for everything, but yet again, mainly for nose contouring. Just look at it, it's flawless! It's from the series "Black Diamond", which doesn't have the same nor as many different brushes as the original Nilens Jord-brush collection.

This brush is 124 Nilens Jord Black Diamond Eyeshadow Brush

Perfectly cut, perfect angle! 

In it's charismatic box. 

It says: 'Exclusive brush for eyeshadow from Nilens Jord. The elegant design and shape in combination with the silky soft synthetic hairs make this brush special. Synthetic hairs are especially good withthe eye shadows with a high content of minerals.' 

All in all, I'm really satisfied, even thought this is my first time trying this brand ever. If you're searching for good quality and you're willing to give a little more this is definetly recommended! 

Bye for now!

Do you have a touchscreen monitor? because if you don't, windows 8 would just be really weird and complicated
