Loose eyeshadows aren’t everyone’s favorite but they offer a depth that most pressed shadows can’t hold a candle to. During Sephora’s VIB 20% off sale I picked up Queen Tiffany Glimmer Eyeshadow by bareMinerals (among other things I’ll show you soon). It’s been on my list for ages and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s a gorgeous taupe-y brown suitable for everyday wear. In this look it’s all I have on my eyes and lower lash line.
It has a beautiful sheen that makes it look like you’re wearing a crease color with it. Many people say that loose shadows are a pain to deal with, but as long as you tap off the excess there is no fallout with this shade. I used the LORAC eyeshadow primer underneath it and Queen Tiffany looked great until I took it off 14 hours later.
On my lips I’m wearing the Clinique chubby stick intense in the shade Mightiest Maraschino. I got this deluxe sample by redeeming 100 points at Sephora. As you might already know, I love red lipstick and this color is amazing! I’ve never tried the original Clinique Chubby Sticks but these are so pigmented as the name says. I didn’t really find it to be moisturizing but it was very comfortable to wear and quite glossy. It lasted a good two hours (without eating) before it needed a touch up. It’s such a beautiful color that if I make it through this one I may end up buying it.
I’m wearing Benefit Boxed Blush in Dandelion on my cheeks for a subtle pink glow.
I don’t know why I waited this long to get Queen Tiffany, but I’m really glad I have it now. If you’ve never tried a loose shadow this is an excellent one to start with! I haven’t been this impressed with a Sephora perk in a really long time. Mighty Maraschino is a great new addition to my collection.
