Honestly, I’m super embarrassed at the Tumblr-worthy reaction I had when I first unwrapped these eyeshadows. I think I made a sound that only dogs could hear, then said the aural equivalent of an incoherent excited keyboard mash. I love shimmery, glittery eyeshadows. Love. Love like a bowerbird loves blue objects, like a magpie loves something shiny.
The five new Diamond Lust eyeshadows from Gucci Westman’s Expressionist autumn collection for Revlon have shimmer and sparkle in spades. The bowerbird, the magpie and me, all with our shiny objects d’amour.
Clockwise from top left:
- Celestial Silver – white silver
- Night Sky – deep charcoal
- Starry Pink – icy pink
- Plum Galaxy – ruddy plum
- Neptune Star – deep dirty teal
My pick of the bunch is Night Sky, a charcoal base loaded up with oodles of slightly holographic shimmer. Apply a black or charcoal base cream shadow across the lid, then apply Night Sky with a damp brush to create a deep lustrous finish. Finish with lashings of mascara and groomed brows and you’ve got one heck of a show-stopping smoky eye!
The formula of these shadows is a little tricky, so prep is the key to getting the best result. Always use an eye primer to lock the shadow into place and prevent a little glittery cascade of fallout onto your cheeks. To get the best application use a damp brush or sponge applicator to press the Diamond Lust shadows into place. Sorted!
Diamond Lust eyeshadows are AU$19.95 for .8g. The Impressionists collection by Gucci Westman is at Revlon counters across Australia now.
