My Current Go-To Single Shadows

by - Friday, August 30, 2019

When I don't wanna be arsed to use a palette, one of my go-to eyeshadows is always either a cream shadow or a powder shadow. My current go-tos are mostly cream shadows, with the odd two powder shadows, and they're all from two brands: Kiko Milano and Butter London. 

One of my favorite cream eyeshadow formulas is the Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss. I know they're more of a jelly-like formula, but they have so much pigment and definitely pack a punch when I need it.

I currently own three of the Glazen Eye Glosses.

Unicorn is a pale beige with blue and purple iridescent glitter.

Icing is a deep mauve-colored bronze.

Frosted is a beautiful rose gold.

The next go-to shadow I have is the Kiko Water Eyeshadow. These are beautiful and remind me of those old NARS single shadows, and they're also quite subtle, but you can build them up so they will provide more color. I have two of the Water Eyeshadows: Champagne, which is a slightly metallic golden champagne, and Rosy Taupe, a matte pale rosy taupe.

The last shadows I have are the Kiko Cream Shadows, although two are from the new formula and one is from the old formula. The formulas basically feel the same, except the old formula felt a lot spongier than the new one. For the old formula, I have the color Pearly Silver Rose which is a beautiful silver with flecks of pink. For the new formula I have the shades Champagne, which is a golden champagne, and Golden Rose, a beautiful rosy gold.
