I need more eyeshadow like I need more holes in my head, but these new Buxom shadows showed up at my door and once I opened the package I couldn’t wait to use them. When I was younger I used to think all shadows were created equal, but after trying my fair share of different brands and types I can definitely say that is definitely not true. These Buxom shadows are not only highly pigmented and give off intense color payoff, but I just found out they’re primer-infused which makes them virtually budge proof, especially when they’re layered over another eye primer. I wore these shadows to a wedding in 95 degree weather last weekend and I was extremely impressed that they didn’t crease or smudge at all.
If you’ve read my Makeup Monday series before you know that I’m a lover of metallic eye shadows and if you’re not you need to start wearing them now! Don’t mistake metallic for shimmery or glittery…metallic shadows like these are light catching and perfect for highlighting and bringing all the attention to your eyes.
