The Look For Less: Shimmery Shadow


I don't think I'll ever get tired of using eyeshadow that's super shimmery.  I love all things glittery, sparkly, and shiny.  So eyeshadow that packs some fine glitter is right up my alley.

The thing is, a lot of the shadows I've found that have the right amount of glitter (not crazily chunky) are très, très expensive.

One of my faves is Urban Decay's Midnight Cowboy Rides Again.  It's a really nice medium brown shade with just the right amount of shimmer.  It's highly pigmented and is one of the few shadows I can wear alone--it's that gorgeous.

The problem? Each shadow is about $20.  Since I use it so frequently, that really adds up.  So I took a look around and found an almost identical shadow for much less.

ELF's Cowgirl is practically the same color.  And I don't think the similarity in the names is a coincidence.  The shadow works just as well as the Urban Decay version, and it's a mere $3.

Huzzah!
