5 Shimmering Shades of White

Pure, snow white–in a variety of finishes, plus a highlighter that looks almost white in the pan but is a little warmer and golden than that. I wanted to include a white polish, but there weren’t many permanent ones to choose from (that I’ve covered and were good) — what white polishes have you found to work best? You can check out comparison swatches of my picks, too :)

  1. Inglot #453 — bright, metallic white (and not too cool-toned)
  2. Sugarpill Tako — matte white
  3. Maybelline Too Cool — creamy, cool-toned white
  4. NARS Albatross — a dusting of shimmer and sheen
  5. NARS Santa Monica Blvd. — bright white for your lash line

5 Sparkling Blue Hues

I tried to pull a good variety in blues, from cobalt, purplish blues to sky blues to your bold, bright blues–and not just eyeshadows! I had to pick an eyeliner, because it’s a great way to add a bold pop of color without going full-on blue. If you want to see my picks together, the comparisons.

  1. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans — a pop of cobalt blue for the lash line
  2. OCC Pond — Tardis blue for your nails
  3. Le Metier de Beaute Lapis — a beautiful, medium-dark blue with shimmer
  4. Color Club Over the Moon — a shimmering, holographic blue
  5. Inglot #426 — a brightened, medium blue

Inglot #122R Rainbow Eyeshadow

Inglot #122R Rainbow Eyeshadow Pan ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a trio of warm, yellow-toned browns that range from a dirty orange to terracotta to medium-dark brown.  The quality of this trio was quite good across the board, with the bottom shade being really impressive.  All three shades had nice pigmentation, soft textures, and none of them were too powdery.  I had no trouble applying or blending out the colors on the lid, and they do work well together.  I might opt for a lighter inner lid color, just to provide more contrast.  When I wore these three shades together, they lasted seven and a half hours well with some minor fading becoming apparent after eight and a half hours.

Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow

Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow Pan ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a trio of warm, earthy greens that ranges from light to medium to dark. They sit together in the same pan, and they are equal in size/height. All three eyeshadows have the Double Sparkle finish, which means there is a light dusting of fine shimmer in them–but the shimmer was nearly undetectable applied.  When I tested the wear, all three shades lasted well for a full eight hours and only had some very minor fading apparent after nine hours of wear.
