High Shine Eyecolor - null
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.
When I first started using this product I found it to be very messy. As I read other reviews about using an eye brush instead of the applicator it worked much better for me. I was very excited when the "black friday" sale had the price so low I order four different shades. Unfortunately the colors on the web site are not true to what comes in the package. I order Patina which is described as "golden khaki" and in life it is better described as mossy sage. Not the same color at all. If you do not already use the color I recommend going to the boutique first to try the colors.
Overall I really like the product and will continue to buy and use.
My favorite eye shadow ever
This is the best eye shadow ever. I love the colors and the shine/sparkle. I have 4 or 5 colors and I love them all. They stay on great with the eye shadow primer.
I too once had the problem of a messy application
First off I love the colors, my favorite hands down is glisten. My favorite combination is city lights all over from eyelid to brow bone, then glisten all over eyelid, then I take my eye defining brush and use a little bit of the color shantung and done! Its so beautiful!, I wear this combo frequently and get compliments, its a great color for day or night. I have other colors I love to, but glisten is my go to color. The colors last a long time too. So a trick I use for applying my high shine eye colors is I always apply without looking and always looking down so not a single particle can fall onto my face. Works beautifully every time. I just apply the color looking down then check in the mirror to make sure it looks good, and if not I apply more looking down or I use a blending brush to decrease the color if its too much for me. I have no problem with it making messes on my face anymore. I hope that helped everyone!
