I really like Sephora Collection Velvet Eyeshadow Waterproof Eye shadow 16HR #03 Sweet Champagne($19)!
I adore creamy eyeshadows, especially as of late as my eyes have become extremely sensitive to EVERYTHING. I’m not sure if it’s allergies or what, but if makeup gets in my eyes, my eyes are irritated for days. SIGH. So, creamy eyeshadows are my best friend as they stay on eyelids better, and don’t dust up in my eyes during blending. BUT, as you all know, my eyelids are cursed. They are really oily, so…yeah..you see my problem as of late, right? What’s a makeup-loving, beauty blogger supposed to DO?
I’ll tell ya what I’ve been doing! I’ve been wearing Sephora Waterproof Eye shadow 16HR on my lids most of the time is what! It’s an interesting texture for a creamy eyeshadow- velvety you might even say hahaha! It’s smooth, and buildable in intensity from a sheer wash to full coverage and I like that! I prefer a sheer wash, especially with this shade Sweet Champagne, which I’d say is a pretty rose gold. I LOVE rose golds. It’s the perfect gold for me!
Sephora Collection Velvet Eyeshadow is a long-wearing formula that’s supposed to last for up to 16 hours. It’s lightweight and glides onto the eyelid really nicely with just enough time to blend it out before it sets. I like using my fingers, but you can use a brush if you like. What I like is that it stays put on me-even without a primer. Not sure if it’s exactly 16 hours though, but it’s pretty darn close! AND best of all, it doesn’t irritate my poor eyes. And this Sweet Champagne shade is perfect. I’ve tried one of them before actually-a darker plummy shade and didn’t care for it as it applied rather blotchy. But this shade is great! My advice is to stick to the lighter shades of these if you’re thinking about picking one up. Well worth it, especially if you like the MUFE waterproof cream shadows. These are pretty similar(especially this shade), but much, much cheaper. Find it now at your local Sephora or order it online as well!
What’s up everybody? Are you enjoying your long weekend? We are! It’s been really nice, especially since we’re all together. It’s rare for us, especially at this time of year during hockey playoffs. Terry is usually working, but he’s at home right now so we’ve been watching movies and just having some nice quiet family time. I think it’s really starting to hit home for all of us that these family days are numbered, so we’re making it count!
