I'm in love with gold eyeshadow right now.I feel like it's a color that compliments every eye color beautifully.
Gold shadow works for every occasion too; A light dusting of gold shimmer for the beach or a full out smokey gold look for a night out.
Here are some of my favorites:
NARS Sugarland palette
Pros: Awesome rose gold color, and tons of shimmer
Cons: Not very pigmented and creases and flakes if used without a primer
Overall assessment: It's great to use if you're going for a natural look but you still feel like a little sparkle. I love dusting it on my lids over Urban Decay primer in Sin.
NYX Glitter Cream Pallet in One Night in Luxy
Pros: OOH GLITTER!Doesn't flake too much.
Cons: Uneven application, impossible to get off
Overall assessment: Be ready to live the life of Ke$ha for the minimum of 3 days it takes before you wipe away every last sparkle. It's fun to smooth a layer of this over your other eye makeup if you're going for an especially glam look. Being a cream based shadow, it's easier to use than a more flaky glitter shadow which refuses to stick to your lids.
L'oreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duo in Gilded
Pros: Very pigmented, easy to blend, great color.
Cons: The black shadow isn't as pigmented as the gold, although some might consider
this a good thing as it doesn't overpower in a smoky eye.
Overall assessment: My favorite gold shadow. If you haven't tried the HIP eyeshadows you need to!
They're my current makeup obsession and for the price (around $8 but I found some of the duos at
my local 5 below for only $2.99!) their pigmentation is outstanding.
Sorry for the weird pictures...we're working on getting better pictures of products!
What's your current makeup obsession?
