Neverland is a deep and magical mythical world.  It is appropriate, then, that Addiction’s Neverland eyeshadow ($34, including 1st class shipping from ichibankao.com) is a deep-toned and magical eyeshadow.

Part of Kose’s Addiction line, Neverland is a grey/black metallic-textured eyeshadow that has multidimensional overtones of green, silver and blue.

Lightly applied, it’s a shimmery smudge of grey with a hint of blue/green.  However, if you apply it more densely (see upcoming swatches), you can get a gorgeous wet-pavement-in-the-rain effect.  Because of these overtones, the color looks brings out the natural color of my blue-green eyes.

I wear this primarily near my eyeliner, because the dark color is somewhat strong.  Alternatively, I brush the eyeshadow with a brush and lightly apply it all over the lid as a grey wash.   This swatch is heavily applied with no base beneath the eyeshadow.

This can be worn with a black base to make the color even denser, although I didn’t find the difference terribly dramatic.  Here, the top swatch is over a black eyeliner (Giorgio Armani’s) and the bottom without a black base.  Keep in mind that the light is hitting the swatches somewhat differently;  the metallic nature of the eyeshadow makes the top one appear lighter although in real life the color of both was the same.

  1. That is truly beautiful!

  2. Wow! What a gorgeous color. Your swatch is lovely. I like to use dark teals and greens over a black liner. It makes the green in my hazel eyes pop. I’ll definitely have to look into getting this one.

  3. This is one of the ones I have my eye on, I think it’s different enough from Crow to own both. Lovely colour.

    • …and I think I need to order Crow now after seeing your swatches! I agree they seem somewhat different. And I believe Crow is an ME texture, so I’m guessing that I’ll need to pick that one up.

  4. Gorgeous!!! I really wish this line would be expand to other countries out of Asia!
