If you follow TheBombshellSuite on YouTube, you probably saw her recent get ready with me video where she used the Wet N Wild highlighter/bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana. She gave it such a great review that I had to go out and find it. Strangely, the drugstore didn't have these at all, but I found one at my grocery store.
Anyway, as soon as I touched it and swatched it on my hand, I knew that it was a dupe for one of my favorite highlighters.
As you know, I am a huge fan of Laura Geller's baked products. The Baked Vanilla highlighter is one of my favorite highlighters for it's subtle sheen and nearly matte appearance. On the skin it brightens, but doesn't shine, glisten, or glitter on the skin.
And wouldn't you know, they are nearly identical! Same texture, same sheen, same glow.
I will start by saying that I think Estee Lauder does some of the best matte eyeshadow on the market (wild truffle, wild sable, chocolate bliss, etc). These palettes have a great mix of mattes, shimmers, metallics, and satins. They are a bit powdery when you dip your brush into them. But, the pigmentation is great.
My favorites- Fiery Saffron, Provocative Petal, and Infamous Sky. But I also love the metallics in Rebel Metal and Fierce Safari. I actually want them all.
These were taken in a bit of a hurry, but I hope they are helpful enough to help you choose.
Cream eyeshadow seems to be big right now no matter where you shop. Each brand from drugstore to high end is producing their own type of shadow cream. Some come in stick form while some come in a pot, but they all serve the same purpose- to provide long lasting, crease free, shadow application quickly and easily. These can usually be used alone or underneath a powder shadow for greater pigmentation and lasting ability.
Today I am going to talk about my very favorite cream shadow type product- the Mally Everycolor shadow stick.
Why do I like these shadow sticks over every other kind I have tried? That is easy. They last! They apply and set quickly, and they do not budge once set. You get about ten to twenty seconds play time before they set, and then they do not come off unless you use a wipe or remover to take them off.
The Mally Evercolor shadow stick retails for $25 each. It can be purchased anywhere that sells Mally Beauty. I will put links at the end of this post.
