Top 5 | Shimmer Shadows

Hello! Do you like shimmery eye shadows? I LOVE them!!! It is rare that I do an all matte eye. I like to use matte colors to blend, but always need some shimmer or glitter on the lid!

Here are my favorites!

So first, we have the star of the show. The Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Smoky Storm. This is a liquid shadow that is chock full of sparkly glitter. One swipe of this, and it is opaque sparkle. I did one swipe on the swatch below. It is a taupe-y bronzey color and it so gorgeous. You can use it as eyeliner or just on the lid.

Next is a cream pencil shadow that I featured in my recent September Faves post. This NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha is a bronze colored pencil that is so so pretty on the lid by itself or as eyeliner. It is smooth and glides onto the eye for such an easy look. Unlike the Stila, this pencil doesn’t have glitter, it just gives a metallic sheen.

Next is an eyeshadow that I have repurchased because I love it so much. This may be my favorite eyeshadow of all time. It is the Burberry Eye Colour Glow in Nude 002. This color is a silver metallic taupe color that gives the most beautiful sheen. The texture is so smooth and luxurious.

I had to include one of my favorite MAC shadows, Sable. This is a warm toned medium brown shimmery color. MAC makes some of the best eyeshadows in my opinion, and this one has been a favorite for years.

Lastly, a lighter toned shade, this is the Urban Decay Moondust shadow in Starlight. This is a peachy toned metallic shade with silver shimmer. This color is so pretty on the lid and even as an inner corner highlight. It gives a fresh glow to the eyes and is really pretty. Urban Decay’s Moondust shadows are all really nice quality.

Now for the swatches!
