Runway Eyes from left to right: Golden Touch, Peaches & Cream, Antigua
The shades look super pretty in the packaging, but they clearly included a lot of glitter. I was totally unimpressed by my initial swatches, because glitter seemed to go everywhere, and the swatches weren't very intense. Applied on the eye with a brush... the actual pigment in these shades was even more sheer and relatively undetectable. However, paired with just a bit of water, the metallic pigment really came out in these shadows-- showing off much more color along with the glitter. You can see for yourself in these swatches...
While I'm probably not going to waste my time applying these dry, I will most definitely be using them wet for a pop of sparkle & shine on the lids. I'd really suggest sticking to the lids with these colors, because while the golden and peach shades seem like highlights, it's really a whole lot of glitter for the brow-bone. Applied in a concentrated way on the lids- you get pretty sparkle without a total glitter-fest all over the eye area. When you apply them wet, you have more control over the glitter, instead of it flaking everywhere. I can see these colors being worn alone, or paired with a deeper contour. Antigua is gorgeous wet- and I'm excited to apply it with deeper olives in my Too Faced Natural at Night palette for a smoky look.
