I think the only iridescent product I own is a cream eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown. It’s light pink and it’s absolutely gorgeous!

I absolutely love iridescent colors, but my favorites are UD fishnet/MAC stars ‘n rockets eyeshadow and MAC steel blue pigment. I love wearing steel blue with black – it really brings out the gold.

Oh my, this is a hard one! I ADORE iridescence, being the magpie that I am… I think it’s a tie between Persephone Mineral’s Stagelights and Meow Cosmetic’s Skeptic. The former is lilac with gold iridescence and the latter is periwinkle with pink and copper iridescence. Smashbox Oyster and Love Hues’ Opaline Moonstone comes very close as well.

Opaline Moonstone:

YES! I am in love with strobe liquid (oily complexion)! The MAC MUA said “This is 8 hours of sleep in a bottle!” I use it on my undereyes on those days where even concealer doesn’t cut it lol

Um…all of them? ha ha. I have TKB’s interference micas (they don’t have bases, but really anything else is a ripoff) and love them on top of other colors or as highlights to add some duochrome goodness.

MAC Iridescent powder in silver dusk its FABULOUS and MAC blush in trace gold, the perfect golden beige satiny iridescence, I actually use it as an all over highliter.

Fyrinnae Te Amo loose eyeshadow. It’s a lovely light copper shimmer color. I use it to blend out other colors and add that extra something to a look and I also use it over Pixie Epoxy as a lid color for a smoky eye, which looks gorgeous.

mac vanilla pigment so beautiful! i use it for everything inner corner of eyes, lips cupid bow, cheekbones, brow bone

i also love body shop’s shimmer strips theyre so beautiful and underrated products remind me a lot of diors amber diamond

Agreed! The Body Shop’s shimmer strips are beautiful, especially in the blush shade. I find the other ones too shimmery, but the blush one gives a gorgeous opalescent sheen to my paleness. Love it!
