I am attempting to create content and not buy a bunch of things (though let’s be real I have a running list of things to try) so I decided to to a therapy swatch party and go through my favourite shimmer shadows and toppers in my collection.
Let’s start with the singles. I have four shadows that are my absolute faves. The first one is colourpop Cosmic Charge. This is a warm taupe shade with a bit of a blue shift. I love this shade so much. It looks nice as a topper and also as a single shadow. The other colourpop shadow that I have is the shade Ritz. This is a more transparent beige with nude glitter.. The other shadow that I have liked forever is L’Oreal Amber Rush. This is such a perfect Rose Gold shade that works as a single shadow look but makes it look like you have made all the effort. The other more sheer shadow that I enjoy is the Kosas Liquid Shadow in Globe. This is a beautiful sheer shade that is a neutral champagne and is easy to use daily.
There are a few shades in a few palettes that I cannot get over. One that is in a limited edition MAC Palette in the shade Star Violet that is a dazzleshadow. Without fail, I always get compliments on this shadow when I wear it. There is another formula that I cannot get over, is the Natasha Denona formula. The two shades Monroe and Shine are beautiful shimmers and can be worn alone or with a lovely matte in the crease. The other shade in a palette that I love is the Colourpop Coco Crush. This is a lovely rose gold (can you sense that theme here). This shade has the most fall out of all the shades I own but it is one of the prettiest sparkles I have. It does not have the same density as the Natasha Denona but remains a really nice affordable all over the lid shimmer.
