High Shine Eyecolor - null
Purchased the color Vapor
I was looking for a deep grey color and purchased Vapor because the description said gunmetal grey. This color is a bright metallic blue and no where near grey!
Love the staying power and ease of application but I was looking for a true grey so I will be returning it.
Must Have More
I got this at a sample in my foundation auto delivery. I do not use an eye primer but I do apply my BE foundation to whole face including eyelids. I use the applicator to dot this shadow onto my lids. Then I use a separate make up brush to sweep it onto the entire lid. The applicator is wide and cannot get into corners. I usually use a bush to apply shadow. This shadow is definitely High Shine as named. I love it and wear it all day. It really makes my eyes stand out. It's a knock out when combined with the BE volumizing mascara. I have had no problems taking this product off. I wash my face at night with cleanser as usual and it all comes off. I have had no problems with it falling onto my face and smudging either.
I wouldn't buy this product
I recieved a free sample of this stuff, I have to say I would NEVER buy this product. I don't write reviews and I came on here just to let you know, this stuff gets EVERWHERE! Even if you are careful in application by the end of the day it'll be smudged all over your face. One day at work a co-worker asked "are you ok?what happened to your eye?" I went to the mirror, it looked like I had a black eye. This stuff not only smudges all over your face, it also will NOT come off without cold cream, so If you make a mistake with it you have to start your WHOLE face over! Save yourself the aggrivation.
Love These, but has a learning Curve
I love that these give you the look of the "Foiled" look without the mess of water and such. However, there is a bit of a learning curve. The packaging is great, but you really must make sure you wipe off any excess or it falls off the applicator and onto your face. I love the Moonshine color. I recently received Vapor. I love the grey/blue color. However, if it falls underneath my eyes and smudges, it looks like I got punched in the eye. So I have to be very careful with the application. The final result though is SEXY, SEXY, SEXY!! =D
I have 3 of the high shine eye colors. I love all 3! I have meteorite, moonshine and goldmedal. I use goldmedal to tone down some darker eyeshadows that I have; it gives such a nice golden shimmer as well!! Meteorite is a gorgeous color-yes it is on the darker side but I use a shadow brush to tone down the color. I use moonshine to bring out the different colors in my hazel eyes; it is a beautiful color!! All 3 mix together very well! They are so easy to use..perfect to throw in your purse for touch-ups! I can't wait to get the 2 other colors that I ordered!!!
If you are looking for a smoke effect get the Vapor. If you are looking for more of a day time look stick with a super light color. My make up delivered arrived and as always I could not wait to try it on so I went into the bathroom to apply vapor and then spent the next 15 mins scrubbing it off my eyes. Good news it has staying power.
Wow that's color!
Though I usually stick to more subtle shades, I decided to switch it up and give meteorite a shot. It is a beautiful color that is very intense. I like it a lot, but it isn't an every day look (at least for me). I am happy with it and will probably try other colors in the high shine line.
Going to what the first rater said, it is a little smudgy, but I think you get a more even tone and better texture by dotting and smudging a little. The brush it very wide and it would take a real pro to line your bottom lid with it.
I have not intentionally purchased an eyeshadow in the past several months because I have so many. Then I spotted these High Shine eyeshadows, especially the one in Meteorite, and I was immediately taken! These shadows have a beautiful sheen and texture. I'm a bit perplexed with the previous review, however, because my shadow doesn't budge in the least bit. I do wear an eyeshadow primer, so maybe that's the difference between my experience and the previous reviewer's. I highly recommend these beauties!
Smudges all over eye lid and under lid ... If this was my first purchase from Bare Escentuals it would be my last...someone should go back to the drawing board on this one!
