The Must Have Glitter Eye Shadow

24 Sep

For years I’ve been trying to find a glittery eye shadow that (a) is as glittery on my eyes as it is in the container because often I find I’m disappointed with the quality of glitter post application, and (b) that the colour stays true instead of fading once applied and, (c) is so light weight it won’t aggravate my eyes or cause tearing.

So I’ve tried many of the expensive brands over the years and in the end I just gave up and thought the problem was perhaps with the applicator (me!) as opposed to the products. Then last week I was in Boots and came across My Face Blingtone eye shadow collection, what particularly caught my eye was the Crystalline Green colour – the perfect match for my hazel eyes.  So I purchased the green and also an incredible iridescent blue called Caribbean Queen as they were running a special offer, two for €15.

At home later the night I tried it. I didn’t even use a brush, simply rubbed some on my eyelid to see what the colour would be like on – I was amazed by the results. How was it possible that one careless application could look this good? Then I applied it using my eye brushes and the results were near professional. This is the perfect shadow for someone who’s given up on glitter.

    I bought some of these on your recommendation and I have to agree the pigment in them is brilliant as is the glitter. LOVE!

    Hi Niamh, It’s easy to post in the wrong box, it’s always happening to me too! The Moroccanoil can be bought from Zeba Hair Salon, 60 South Williams Street, Dublin 2 or from amazon or I got mine on Ebay but make sure you’re buying from a ‘shooting sta’r seller – i.e someone with a long history of selling authentic goods.
