Buxom Stay-There Eyeshadows (Part 3)

According to the brand, these are supposed to have sheer color coverage, but they are buildable to an extent. The five featured in this post are very true to that creed–they can easily be used as a sheer wash of color, but they can also be used opaque by either initially applying more color or by applying a second layer of color on top of the first. Stay-There Eyeshadows have a spongy quality that reminds me of memory foam; you can press it, and it will slowly spring back to form. You can jab at it with a pencil, and you’ll end up shifting it around more than anything! These actually launched well before Chanel Illusion d’Ombres, which have a similar texture.

Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush

Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “bright coral.” It’s more like a muted coral-orange with a warm, golden sheen. It’s a bit like MAC My Paradise but softer, less orange. Make Up For Ever #153 is pinker, more shimmery. MAC Marine Life is slightly pinker with less of a golden sheen.
