I love shimmery shadows, I actually very much prefer shimmery shadows to matte or satin finishes! I've been using Hard Candy's Eye's the Limit Shimmer Shadow Primer* as a base for my shimmery shadows lately. You can also use this primer to add shimmer to a matte or satin shadow, as an eye shadow all by itself, or as a highlighter!
"A shimmering pink champagne eye shadow primer that adds shimmer to any eye shadow look and increases the vibrancy and lasting power of your eye shadow. Transform any eye shadow into a crease-proof, budge-proof long wear formula. Helps to prevent fading of eye shadow so you can stay flawless all day and night. Also works as an eye shadow or highlighter." - Hard Candy
The packaging for Hard Candy's Eye's the Limit Shimmer Shadow Primer is quite simple - a pearly pink plastic tube that you can easily squeeze the product out of. The product itself is a thick, creamy pinky beige formula with a ton of shimmer to it. To use, simply blend the primer all over your eyelids. The formula blends in quickly, and leaves a beautiful shimmery sheen to your lids. You can then easily add a powder shadow (shimmer, glitter, matte, etc.) over top, or just wear the primer on its' own. I love how this primer adds shimmer to my lids, and I love how you can transform a matte shadow into something more glittery!
