A new lease of life for baked eyeshadows..

After reading Fee's post on scraping the top layer off baked products to leave them more pigmented I decided to have a go myself with Accessorize's baked duo in Rendezvous as after originally being impressed with it I then became less and less so as I used it a few more times. I tend to use this foiled, so with a wet brush, which seems to cause this problem of a frosty top-layer much faster than with a dry brush.

Here's the obligatory before shot:

Pale, washed out colour. This is relatively heavily swatched. 

Pretty shimmery colours in peachy and pale pink colours.. but with a frosty sheen

Time to score the surface of your baked shadow (or other baked product) to reveal fresh new surface!

Top to bottom: before & after. Both swatched over ELF's eyeshadow primer. There's a huge difference in pigmentation and the bottom swatches took a whole lot less loading onto the brush too! 

I look forward to being able to use this duo properly once again. 

Have you had pigmentation problems with baked products? Tried this?
