Inside this lacquered black box are colors that work wonders not only on a variety of skin tones but in multidimensional, multifaceted ways. Though these compacts -- which come in a whopping five shades for a truly versatile look -- are primarily supposed to be used on the cheekbones for contouring and that healthy, natural-looking glow, this beauty chick loves to use them on my eyes instead!
Currently making a long-standing rotation in my bag are the compacts in both Bronze and Pink. Bronze contains five gorgeous hues of brown, peach and cream, while Pink offers up five beautiful shades of pink, mauve and white, making it the go-to palette for summer! The colors in each are sparkly, glittery and truly pretty -- each lends just the subtlest hint of color that is buildable, blendable and leaves cheeks and eyes looking absolutely flawless. If these two palettes don't excite you, you can also choose from Apricot, Beige and Rose.
The colors last for so long that it will be ages before you have to replace them! Any palette with "shimmer" right in the title deserves extra-long standing in this beauty chick's daily beauty regimen -- how about yours?
