Glitter is the herpes of Makeup.
The smallest amount will be on you for years, I've had nightmares about spilling glitter on my hands and then almost without even thinking about the consequences, rubbing my face. Glitter is serious. It takesforever to take off. And when you think it's all gone, there is it. Popping up somewhere it has no business being.
Glitter's a pain in the ass.
That being said, I'm not really sure what possessed me to purchase the item featured today.
Victoria's Secret [online] had this to say: Unveil eye-catching color. Pigment-rich formula drapes lids in pure color and an alluring glitter effect.
Provocateur caught my oh so naive and stupid eye because I bought it when I was just getting into makeup and figured for $10, that's way less than I pay for MUFE, NARS, UrbanDecay, and even the Sephora brand. So I was sold. And the beige-pink color is really amazing... in the box.
Since I now had remnants of this eyeshadow on my hand, I had to take it off. My makeup remover wasn't necessarily taking the makeup from my fingers off, rather than just erasing the color and leaving glitter. GREAT.
When I tried to take it off at night.. ugh. There was glitter all around my eyes. Maybe it was my makeup remover, so I tried another glittery eyeshadow; UD's Sidecar. With 1 swipe the color was gone, and I didn't look like I had just left a rave.
But the good thing about VS Silky Eyeshadow is it's literally the smoothest eyeshadow I've ever felt.
Literally. So if you like running your fingers through an eyeshadow, this one's for you.
