I love this shadow so much because it looks natural. While I do have fun playing with color when I'm going to spend a night out on the town, I don't want my everyday look to be over bearing. While this is nearly a nude color on me, it adds a shine that I love. It brings just enough attention to my eyes to make them the focal point of my face, without anyone really thinking about the fact I am wearing make up.
This shadow is smooth and blends nicely. It is light weight, so I don't feel like I am wearing anything on my lids. The biggest thing for me is that it isn't flaky. I wear hard contacts (gas permeable) so anything that gets into my eyes causes a major problem. Beyond the pain and discomfort, my eyes will turn an ugly red. Most people think I either have pink eye or am on drugs when this happens. All sorts of fun conversations. Thankfully this eyeshadow stays put! I have found that this isn't true for most shadows with this kind of shine.
|I didn't use any primer before putting on this shadow. I actually like it more without primer as I thought it looked more natural. It is really up to personal preference. I found that even without the primer it lasted all day.|
|With my eyes open you can tell that the shade is pretty close to my skin color, but there is a bit of extra light on my lids. That is probably why the pots were named 'fairy light.'|
Needless to say, this shadow isn't cheap, but it is worth it. At $15 dollars a pop you actually get quite a bit and it will last me a long time. Comparably, MAC eyeshadow pots are the same price at 1.5g while the Pixi pot is 2.29g.
I've enjoyed my experience with Champagne Glow so much that I am thinking about grabbing some other colors to try. I will definitely purchase this again when the time comes.
