High Shine Eyecolor Duo: Gold Medal & Meteorite
I don't understand...
Why these are in the last chance section?! A friend of mine has had these for awhile, but for some reason I couldn't find them on here. I was browsing the last chance section and spotted them (the two colors I really wanted being sold together? I was thrilled!) As soon as they arrived I put them on, and OH MY GOD. These are seriously gorgeous! It really does give off that foiled look without the work, and yeah, it's a bit messy, but hey, it's glitter and that kinda comes with it, you know? The applicator is nothing to get excited about, but like others, I just apply it to a brush instead. These are really beautiful, and I hope bare minerals is planning some kind of relaunch of these (maybe in a more user-friendly container or something). You are getting two highly pigmented, glittery eyeshadows here, so the price is really not too bad. Highly recommend.
My go-to colors!
I LOVE both the Gold Medal and the Meterorite and use them together and individually to blend with other colors and add a bit of pop with their bright shimmer! The Gold is actually a little more gold on me than in the picture and I'd say the meteorite is represented just about perfectly in the picture -- they're both gorgeous! I too was skeptical about the applicator, but it's spring loaded and doesn't go all the way to the end of the tube when closed, so shaking the powder around a bit gets it good and loaded, but it is a bit cumbersome when I want to apply it with a little more precision than an applicator can handle, but this is easily solved by using one of my gazillion other eye shadow brushes to collect the shadow off the applicator or from the tube. And it's still less messy than the little pots and travels very well!
not a fan
I ordered two of these high shine eyecolors. One was Patina, the other was Ice or something. The Patina is much darker than it looked on the website. I am overall unimpressed by the product. It is like putting eyeshadow on with those cheap brushes that come in the kits from the drugstore. It is convenient, which is why I gave it two stars instead of one. Definitely a good to-go product, but not for this price.
