Eye Shadows and Shimmers

Elizabeth Arden Eyeshadow Duo Refillable Compact [colour: Charcoal]
You have to love any product that is refillable. This refillable eye shadow compact not only saves you money by only having to purchase the eye shadow refills, but also saves the environment by not throwing more plastic into the trash. You also have control of teaming up your own choice of colours. The compact itself is sleek and sturdy with a generous mirror ? more generous than most powder compacts and contains two application brushes. The eyeshadow applies well, blends easily and has good longevity throughout the day and night.
RRP $21. Available from department stores nationally.
Also check out the Elizabeth Arden Gold Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow – Brilliant for night time and can be used to highlight cheeks as well as eyes. Goes on really easily and has a soft, creamy consistency unlike most powder eye shadows. One for the party chicks for sure!

CoverGirl Eye Enhancers Mix and Match Quad Eyeshadow
CoverGirl delivers a reasonable product for the price, packaging is flimsy but the shadows themselves are actually fairly good. The shadow is smooth and not too shimmery. It blends well either using the applicator provided or a brush and stays amazingly well. Good pigment in the shadow means you don?t have to apply three layers to get good colour.
RRP $12.95

Covergirl Eyeslicks
This is a great product for the lazy ones among us. It?s a shimmer stick that is thin enough to use as a liner, but can be blended to use as a shadow. I found it great to use with my regular black eyeliner to give more dimension to my eye colour but really the choice is yours. The colour is strong and shimmery enough to be seen, even at night, but not dark enough to make you feel like some sort of night worker!
RRP $14.50

Sugar Baby Eye Shadow range
With its pretty in pink packaging, it?s hard to resist Sugar Baby. They have a large range of eye shadows including a loose powder ?Wink n?Blink eye shimmer?, a packed powder ?Eye Candy shimmer shadow? and a ?Drama Queen? eye cream. The shadows aren?t especially strong, great if you like a hint of colour on your eyes. It?s probably aimed for the younger market, perfect first makeup present for teenage girls!
RRP wink n blink Eye Shimmer $ 12.95 Eye Candy Shimmer Shadow $12.95 Dream Queen Eye Cream :$12.95 Stockist number: 03 9568 5999
