The one sweep wonders


Now don't get me wrong I love a good intricate eye look as much as the next gal however sometimes I do just want something easy to throw on all over the lid and go so today I thought I would show you some of my favourite all over the lid shades which require minimal effort.
Shiseido Simmering cream eye colour in RS318 -
I actually first tried this out in a full face of first impressions on my channel and I wasn't really impressed as it seemed a little lack lustre however after breaking through the initial top layer it seems much more pigmented. This leaves a beautiful metallic pink shade on the lids which doesn't make the eyes look sore like some pinks can without other shadows.
Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadow in In the spotlight -
You all know that I absolutely love the Makeup Geek shadows and this one is no exception. It has such an incredible metallic finish and the shade is a beautiful peachy colour which is right down my street. What I love about this is that it is one of those shadows which seems to fall darker in the crease (think Mac Woodwinked) and makes it look like you have more than one shadow on.
NYX Prismatic eyeshadow in Golden peach.  -
These are so similar in formula to the Makeup geek foiled shadows, they have that same really heavy metallic finish and almost creamy texture. This shade golden peach is like the dark slightly less gold version of in the spotlight. Again this one falls darker in the crease making you look like you've made a lot more effort than you have.

L'Oreal L'ombre pure in Sable Lame -
This shade is just absolutely stunning it's a beautiful pale gold with lots of glitter in it and I absolutely love how it looks with some liner. Again this has a very creamy texture making it super easy to use. I personally prefer applying this one with my finger as I find that really helps make sure the pigment is at it's strongest.
Colourpop Super shock eyeshadow in Puppy love -
This is the first shadow I have tried from Colourpop and I do not like it when I use it alongside other shadows as it seems to really affect how they blend however on it's own it is a gorgeous duochrome shade. It reflects pink and peach and I feel like would be a really beautiful shade if you were new to makeup.
So that's it for today I'd love to know what your favourite throw on shades are?


  1. The colourpop swatch is gorgeous - it's a shame it doesn't go well with other colours - maybe as an inner corner highlight? Or maybe even as a Spring highlighter?

  2. These are all so pretty! I particularly love the look of the NYX prismatic and Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadows. I've added them to my wish list as a result of your post! For one shadow looks, I tend to reach for my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze, or my GOSH Eyeshadow Stick in Silver Rose. Both very pretty shades! Xx
