High Shine Eyecolor - null
Multidimensional shine, low quality applicator
It's a really fine grade glitter that nicely represents a taupe color, like a darker color of my skin tone in indoor environments and has a plum and white glow in natural light.
The applicator is ridiculously clunky. Imagine trying to apply with an oversized foam applicator. It's ok, lifehack it with a brush!
Patina is not golden khaki - its dark green
This did not look like the photo or the description - its dark green.
High Shine Line
I love this line. No messy and residual powder to clean off my face. The applicator is wide enough to cover your eyelid with color. Takes 5 seconds or less to have color on my eyelid! Stays on too! Best invention in a long time.
Would love to see modifications
I LOVE the amount of shimmer in these colors. However, I find these extremely hard to use. BM has re-trained me to be a pro at working with potted eye shadow, but these tubes kill me. First off all, I'm not a fan of sponge tip applicators. I tried the applicator anyway, but found it difficult to maneuver since it was so short. So, I stuck my brush in this tube (I had to use a real small one) and ended up getting a glittery/shimmery mess all over my counter when I pulled it out. Once I got it on my eyes, I loved it, but I would really love to see this sold in the pots with the sifters. I think that would make these a perfect 5.
High Shine Eyecolor
It seems intimidating but I tried them and I use them a lot. I wear glasses so a little sparkle on the lid isn't too much since glasses tend to hide your eyes some anyway. I just love these and I hope they bring them back or make something similar. They are potent so use very little. I just had to write about them because I use them almost every day! I use the regular shadows for highlighting at the corner and the outside and then another light colour under the brow.
Its nice to take places, but its messy. I have the darker gold, and its nice for going out but the applicator is just so large, its hard to be precise and exact to make your eyes loo the way you want. Other than that, it did stay all night in its wonderful vibrant, glitter, color
I bought High Shine Eyecolor in Gold Medal on a whim and have found it delightful.
Why I love It:
*The color is intense but not loud.
*The shine gives my eyes a natural-looking sparkle and glow.
*It's quick to apply and long-wearing.
*A little bit goes a long way.
Why it's not perfect:
*The sparkle goes everywhere. If you use High Shine Eyecolor be prepared to cover up the fall out because it doesn't brush off easily.
*Due to the messy nature of this product, it's not great for on-the-go application. Do your eyes before leaving the house when using this product.
Personally, I can deal with the messiness in exchange for the amazing color. I'm excited to try High Shine Eyecolor in different shades and would absolutely recommend this product to others.
Long wearing, lovely, fast application--PRACTICE!
I am a mom of a toddler and just started going back to work. I just don't have time to do my eyes like I used to before. This can be used with or without primer, but either way it stays on all day. LOVE! I bought Glisten and it looked really gold in the container, but is more of a shimmery sand sheen color as described when applied. It is not overpowering, and is lovely to use as a sheer color for day use. I use layers of other colors on top for an evening out for extra pop.
-Do your eyes first. Yes, it does fleck off when applying and it will be a pain to re-do your face, because you will have to....it just stays on that well.
-Lean over a sink when applying so it does not leave dust under your eye. Again, if it gets on that area, you will have to redo your makeup. I have under eye circles and use primer and concealer first, and if I get this product on it, I will have to redo everything, something you don't want to do with sensitive under eye tissue.
-Don't rub your eye after application. It will smear!
-Enjoy a touch of color with just a swipe of a wand! That is by far worth it for me. It goes on fast and stays on until you wash it off (I use the deep foaming cleanser...no special eye make remover needed).
-I have very sensitive skin and was worried this product would irritate me (most high shimmer/metallics often do), but I had no problems. I don't even notice it is on. My skin is also very dry now that I have gotten older (used to be combo), and was worried it would dry out my skin....it did not.
-No problems with creasing! Another awesome aspect, as my velvet and matte shadows often crease (I have very small, close and deep set eyes, and getting a bit of a "hooding" of the lid. This is all the more reason why I love this product--it really opens up my eyes and gives me a more youthful/dewy look).
I will be ordering more in different shades (unfortunately, Glisten is out of stock right now).
Thanks for a great product!
I just received two of these and am very disappointed. One came opened so it's dried out. It's so messy I have to open it over the sink. I did not buy these to have to use a brush with it....it comes with an applicator which is one of the reasons I bought this product. My plan was to have it in my purse but no way. It's just way too messy. What a waste of my money.
Wouldn't buy this product again.
Ok, I ordered 5 of the colors. Being honest, I will say, the colors are awesome and it last all day. That part is great. However, the wand with the applicator is very short, despite doing what the directions say to get the color on the wand, it doesn't happen. You can't get the eye shadow onto the applicator after the initial application. The color is way down in the tube. I just wasted $30. I would definitely return for a refund except I threw out the packaging before I tried the product. Not smart.
