There would be no way to even bring up the topic of champagne without mentioning my A+, #1 favorite product of my entire life. And for those of you that know me, this should come as no surprise.
Bobbi Brown "Champagne Shimmer" Eyeshadow
$20 at Sephora and most department stores To Buy
I wish I could take credit for discovering this shadow but it was received on a tip from a co-worker who shares my same complexion. (For those of you that don't know me...that would be pale.) She had been looking for a shadow that was natural enough for daytime but not just a boring bone or vanilla color. She had tried Chanel, Chantecaille and Nars to no success until she finally found our soulmate, the Champagne Shimmer.
I don't know what I could even say to do this shadow justice.
It is the perfect neutral shadow but with a bit of shimmer for brightening. The official description is a light golden peach but it seems to pick up your natural skin tone and work with it for a flattering effect. You can wear it alone with either a black or brown liner or on your brow bone with other warm shadows on the lid.
Women of all skin tones and ages can wear this color because it is a universal shade. Also, the pearlized effect is subtle and does not crease after a day's wear. I recommend checking Champagne Shimmer out if you want an easy option in your make-up bag that you know will always work.
If I only could have 1 eyeshadow for the rest of my life, this would be it. If you like "Kitten" eyeshadow by Stila...Bobbi Brown Champagne Shimmer is far better!
Cheers Champagne Shimmer! I love you!
