I don’t know about other makeup lovers/collectors, but as much as I love makeup, I was never into getting single eyeshadows.
Don’t get me wrong, I definitely do order single eyeshadows, but only if they are inexpensive and highly portable.
For example, my makeup geek Z palette that I customised here , that are all in their refill forms.
But one single eyeshadow that I just can’t miss out on is Stila’s single eyeshadow in the shade ‘Kitten’.
I’m sure by now no one’s a stranger to this product – it is an award winning eyeshadow from Stila, that also works well as a highlighter.
This colour might be my all time go to lid colour.
I like a good shimmer base colour on my lids because I think it really adds a pop of life to my eyes, especially on tired days.
Kitten is a beautiful champagne colour, crazily pigmented, and it is just such a sophisticated shimmer shade.
The swatch really speaks for itself – look at it! I didn’t even use a primer with this swatch!
It is so pigmented that it almost comes across as a little metallic.
I truly think that this is a universal eyeshadow colour that can be used by people of all skin tones.
It’s just so beautiful.
Of course, these pictures don’t really do the product justice, especially when it is applied to my lids.
I’m using an iPhone 5 to take all of the pictures you see on my blog as of current, and it just doesn’t pick up on lid colours as well as a real camera does.
I do hope that you’re still able to see the pop of champagne on my eyelids though.
I’m saving up for a good quality camera, so hopefully the shadows will be more true to life on my lids when I get my hands on a camera.
In this case, I wore the eyeshadows even for a formal event.
Who says shimmer shades aren’t suitable for formal occasions? On the contrary, I think they’re perfect if the shimmer is fine, not chunky and has a nice sheen to it that just catches the light.
As with any eyeshadows with shimmer or glitter, I like to do my eye makeup before I do my foundation because I can clean up any fall outs easily.
I particularly like to use a flat ‘stiff’ brush to apply such eyeshadows.
I’ve been using this product quite often, at least twice a week, be it for inner corner highlights, on my lids or on my cheekbones and trust me, this product goes a long long way.
I have barely even made a dent in it! If I clean its packaging up, it’ll look brand new.
If there’re any single eyeshadows that I’ll repurchase, this will definitely be it.
Do you have any single eyeshadow favourites?
