Favourite highlight eyeshadows / pigments

So I'm on a bit of a roll with the swatching and after doing the blush swatches I thought I would go ahead and do some eyeshadow and pigment swatches.  Now for me light coloured eyeshadows really get me excited.  I love to put them all over the lid for an everyday look.  Here are some of the ones I own.  I'll talk a bit more about my favourites after I list the colours...

From left to right -

  1. NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Pigment - Nude
  2. Stila eyeshadow - Starlight
  3. MAC pigment - Naked
  4. MAC eyeshadow - Retrospeck
  5. MAC eyeshadow - Naked Lunch
  6. MAC eyeshadow - Dazzlelight
  7. Urban Decay eyeshadow - Virgin
  8. Urban Decay eyeshadow - Sin
  9. Urban Decay eyeshadow - Sidecar

Now I know I shouldn't really have put side car in there but I just love that eyeshadow so I wanted to put it in.  It is glittery but it's just gorgeous.  Do skip on it though if you aren't into shimmer.

The one that is definitely disappointing is the MAC pigment.  It is gorgeous but not very pigmented.  It does give a gorgeous iridescence though.  It would probably work really well over another eyeshadow.  But like you can see in the photo it hardly shows up.

Overall the Urban Decay eyeshadows have the best pigmentation, extremely creamy.  They're just gorgeous. 

For a price point the NYX pigment is very surprising, quite nice but a lil difficult to use with its packaging.  

My favourite colours thought are Naked lunch and Dazzlelight from MAC.  Dazzlelight is simply gorgeous, a very frosty light pink highlight, but for a frosty colour its very wearable.  Naked lunch is also pinky but much warmer.  Naked lunch is like my natural skin colour but shimmery.  Dazzlelight is more on the cool side, but I tend to prefer cooler colours rather than warm colours.  Virgin is also a really gorgoues highlight and inner corner tear duct colour.

Stila is also very surprising in terms of pigmentation and colour.  It makes a really nice highlight.

You can also use any of these eyeshadows and cheek highlighters.

Hope you enjoyed this and hopefully it was helpful to someone!
