Get the Look for Less: Shimmery Champagne Eyeshadow
Almost everyday, my makeup routine includes applying a shimmery champagne-hued eyeshadow. I use it as a base, as well as on the inner corners of my eyes to make them look wider and more awake. It's a fabulous technique that I've been using for years.
The problem is, to get the desired effect, you need an eyeshadow that is highly pigmented (meaning that you can use a tiny bit of it to get a full burst of color). Most drugstore shadows simply aren't of the best quality and the pigmentation isn't there. It's also tough to find something cheap that is packed with shimmer. And we all know how obsessed with shimmer I am!
Until now, I've been using Stila's eyeshadow in Kitten. It's around $20, but works amazingly. I've never had a problem shelling out the money since it lasts basically forever and looks so gorge.
The other day, I saw L'Oreal's Infallible Eyeshadow. They have a color called Iced Latte that is almost identical to Stila's Kitten. I tried it out and the pigmentation is great--AND it's packed with shimmer! It's practically the same product! The only difference? You can get it for $7.99.
I was pretty shocked at the sheer awesomeness of this. I think I'm going to try out a few other colors for fun. That said, I'm pretty sure that I'm completely switching over from Stila to L'Oreal, at least for this product!!
