Top 10 Colorful Eyeshadows1

Top 10 Colorful Eyeshadows2

1. MAC Expensive Pink- On the MAC website it’s described as a “pink with duo-chrome.” It’s really not all that pink. I’d say it’s more of a pinky coppery coral with gold shimmer. It’s a gorgeous shadow and flatters all eye colors, especially blue eyes. It’s one of the creamiest eye shadows I own and it applies beautifully.

2. Makeup Geek Pop Culture- A “vibrant iridescent lavender” that applies a little bit sheer but is buildable. This look beautiful all over the lid with a deep blue toned purple in the crease and black in the outer V for a dramatic purple smokey eye.

3. Makeup Geek Simply Marlena- On the Makeup Geek website this color is described as “a rosy pink with purple undertone and gold flecks.” I didn’t really see any flecks, but it’s definitely a cool toned bright pink shadow. I like wearing this color in the crease as a transition shade for a pinky purple smokey eye.

4. MAC Swish- This is described as a “bright pink with icy shimmer” on the MAC website. I’d call this a medium pink with a lavender shimmer throughout it. I like to wear this all over the lid with a purple in the outer V for a quick pink/purple eye look.

5. NYX Ultraviolet- On the NYX site it’s described as a “matte true violet” and that’s exactly what it is. Perfect for a crease shade or as eyeliner for a less harsher look than black.

6. NYX Money Maker- A beautiful shimmery lime green. This is one of my absolute favorite shadows to use on the lower lash line for a pop of color with a neutral eye.

7. MAC Steamy- The MAC website has the perfect description for this shadow, a “blueish-green with gold pearl.” This is a BEAUTIFUL shadow. It really flatters all eye colors because of the gold shimmer. I like wearing this as a smokey lower liner with a neutral eye and a bright fuchsia lip.

8. MAC Club- This is such an interesting color. The swatch doesn’t do it justice. It’s not just a warm brown. It’s a duo-chrome shadow with a reddish brown base and teal/green pearly shimmer. This is an amazing color to use for a one shadow eye look. Cover your entire lid with a black eyeliner and pat Club on top of it and blend it into the crease. On top of the black, it shows more of the green and teal and through the crease it appears more of a warm red brown.

9. Urban Decay Fishnet- This is not the most unique shadow since there are so many dupes but nonetheless it’s a beautiful color. It’s described as a “bright pink shimmer with purple shift.” Like Club, it changes color over a black base, becoming more of a shimmery purple blue shade.

10. Urban Decay Deep End- Urban Decay describes this shadow as a “bright teal shimmer.” It has a blue base to it, and it’s very smooth and pigmented. This color looks great on ladies with brown eyes.
