The One Stop Shop Eyeshadow For Spring/Summer

Best eyeshadow sticks, Nars Isolde

Now don’t get me wrong despite owning a few palettes I feel I rarely wear eyeshadows and when I do I always seem to gravitate towards the fuss free, one swipe – blend and go kinds. They are faff free and a total winner in my eyes.

I specially love bronze-y, gold tones. And with summers around, hello!! bronze goddess look anyone? So here are my top six one stop shop eyeshadow shades.

NARS Isolde : Even though it’s an eyeshadow duo, but anyways, it the prettiest, absolutely most gorgeous eyeshadow duo. The colors are perfection in terms of pigmentation, blend-ability and packaging!

Charlotte Tilbury Marie Antoinette : A beautiful antique oyster gold, with a lovely glide on consistency with a soft focus illuminating pigments. Giving eyes a gorgeous pop. However on the down side, the emollient formula slows down the drying time, making it prone to crease while drying.  But if blended in thin layers, this is a stunning eyeshadow.

Loreal Amber Rush : From the PERFECT metallic, nude, rose-gold shade, to the silky smooth formula, makes it the absolute drugstore gem. It is one of those creme de la creme of eyeshadow pots,  either for creating a stunning romantic look, a little pop on the eyelids or just as a single swipe shade, pulling you together for a sophisticated look.

On the go eyeshadows

By Terry Black Star Ombre In Bronze Moon : Its the neutral shimmery bronze shade, infused with ultra soothing Tahitian black pearl extract which makes them brighten the lids with reflective shimmer. From ultra smooth application, to perfect finish, and the long lasting hold makes it the perfect on the go eyeshadow stick. But with the hefty price tag, this might not be everyones cup of tea, so here are the perfect dupes for this bronze beauty.

Kiko Eyeshadow Pencil In Rosy Brown 05 : These eyeshadow sticks remind me so much of By Terry sticks, but for the fraction of a price. These are a wonderful catch. Rosy brown, is slightly pink toned mauve shade, said to be a dupe for misty rock.

Armani Eye Tint in Rose Ashes* : A beautiful warm peachy gold, that flashes hints of rosey and pink shades. Makes it a unique eyeshadow, and even more so a beautiful base to build up your eye color. Plus that uncommon texture, which is between a liquid, mousey, creamy texture makes it so easy to work with and a dream to blend with even your fingers.
