5 Bright Yellow Eyeshadows

Reader Mindy suggested this post, and here are my top five yellow eyeshadows… honestly, it was pretty easy, because there aren’t nearly as many bright yellow eyeshadows in my repertoire as one might think!  I look forward to seeing your favorites to find some new shades to try!

  1. MAC Bright Sunshine — sunshine yellow with a shimmer-sheen
  2. Sugarpill Buttercupcake — matte brightened yellow
  3. Inglot #370 — matte bright yellow
  4. Inglot #323 — matte golden yellow
  5. MAC Bright Yellow — matte yellow

What’s your favorite bright yellow eyeshadow?

NYX Rose Round Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is an ultra frosted rosy pink with lighter rose shimmer. This is one of the frostiest lipsticks I can remember trying. MAC Whirls & Twirls has a similar frost level, but it’s sheerer (and the colors do not compare). Revlon Carnation is pinker, darker. Rimmel Dizzy is pinker, less frosted. MAC Hot Gossip is warmer, lighter.

The color coverage is mostly opaque, but because of the high level of frost present in the formula, it is very dry and difficult to apply. It does not want to slide on, so the color deposits unevenly and the shimmer tends to look chunky. I found this particular shade to be drying when worn as well, which is a huge downside. It was hard to wear for the full four hours that it clung to lips, and afterward, I really had to race for the lip balm to rehydrate my lips!

Bobbi Brown Nude Pink Blush

Bobbi Brown Nude Pink Blush ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as the “palest pink.” While new, it’s being added to the permanent range, so you don’t have to worry about it selling out! 🙂 I would describe it as a blue-based, cotton candy pink–that’s just slightly muted. NARS Gaiety is much cooler and bluer. NYX English Rose is less blue-toned. MAC So Sweet, So Easy is lighter. Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink is warmer. Urban Decay Quickie is a little brighter. Chanel Tweed Fuchsia is warmer.

Bobbi Brown’s blush formula is supposed to feel silky and have long-lasting wear. The texture is very soft and smooth–it has a very finely-milled texture that applies with a mostly matte finish. What I really liked was how the matte finish didn’t make this a powdery product, which can often happen with drier, matte textures like this one. It doesn’t look dry or patchy on the cheeks either–it has a very soft, natural appearance without shimmer or sheen. I wore this last week to test out the wear, and this shade managed to last for a solid eight hours. I love that the blush can be used as a standalone product or popped out and inserted into a larger palette–even if it is a third to a half the size of your average blush.
