However, seeing blog reviews on their new High Shine eyeshadows made me want to give those gorgeous products a try. I got 2 of them, and the one I am trying on today is Glisten.
The thing that made me get this product is the fact that, despite the lose form, it's supposedly less messy than a lose eyeshadow in a pot form, thanks to the little applicator. And indeed I found this quite easy to apply, providing you do put a tissue on your cheeks while you do because there will be fall out.
Glisten is a gorgeous complex color. It looks like a gold with a rose undertone when you see it in the pot, but once applied it's even more complex than that - it makes me think of Max Vex on crack.
The shine factor obviously comes from the very shimmery (not glittery) formula so I would say that this might enhance fine lines on the lid, which can be a problem for some people.
I would also recommend you use a primer or base underneath so this lose powder has something to stick to - I used my beloved Nars primer.
I used Glisten all over the lid with Mac Plumage on the outer corners.

I think this kind of eyeshadow can easily be worn on its own with liner, thanks to its complexity. That's something I need to try, too!
