This is a review for the B.Stunning Vibrant Eye Shimmer, 097 Golden Sand. I will start by saying that I am actually not a fan of the colour gold, the irony. However, when I saw this I thought I’d at least give it a try before totally dismissing it due to its colour (I can feel a Michael Jackson song coming on). When I got this home I did spend a few days just looking at it, waiting for an opportune moment to wear it due to how stark the colour appeared in the tub. When the moment arrived I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw.
As you can see from the image above, I am a very pale human being. Knowing this I was understandably worried that this colour would exaggerate just how pale I was. But in actual fact it did completely the opposite. This was not the gold colour I am usually accustomed to, like a gold chain. Instead this was a gold that was subtle, understated. It complimented my skin and hair colour beautifully. What was even better was that it was very easy to apply with just a finger. It’s such a nice colour that it doesn’t really need any extra, although I imagine eyeliner going very well with this. I breathed a sigh of relief knowing I wouldn’t look overly “bling bling”.
It looked great and lasted for pretty much the whole day without getting all smudged and caught up in the crevice above my eyelids. It’s a great shimmer that works well for those who want to go for a more natural look, certainly something you can wear to work or even on a sophisticated night out. It’s also surprisingly light, it’s not thick or clumpy at all and I would say feels better than having a powder on. Certainly one to keep in the ol’ handbag!
