This is what it used to look like
and this is how it looks now
Apologies for crappy iPhone pic but I cannot find my memory card reader!! Damn those bloody house elves. If they are going to steal things, you'd think they could come and give the place a little tidy as well...
As you can see the whole 'domed' section from the product had cracked and fallen off. Taking most of the beautiful purple shade with it. You can see from the after pic, there is still plenty of the metallic taupe shade left, but I can't help feeling a bit miffed about it all.
I don't recall dropping or banging the shadow. So I'm not exactly sure what happened to it. As this is my first MAC Mineralized Eye Shadow, is this something that is likely to happen again? I have a split Mineralize Blush (Hang Loose) and that has always been fine, so I just wonder if this a known problem with the eyeshadow or have I been unlucky?
Has this happened to you? Have you opened new products to find they are broken? It's gutting isn't it?!?
