Champagne Shadows

I've been all about the glittery golds these days. The perfect shadow color to sweep across the lids and be on my way while still looking like I put some effort in. These five shades are my go to for an effortless shimmery look.

More often than not I find myself pulling out Maybelline's Color Tattoo in "Barely Branded" ($6.99). It's the least shimmery of the bunch, but easiest to apply. It's a great base  beneath the other shadows as well to really help them pop on the lids and last all day. It's a good'un.

Another one of my favorites came into my life from a past ipsy glam bag. I've never heard of Elizabeth Mott's Pop! Goes the Shadow single eye shadows ($12.99) before and was instantly drawn to "Champagne." It's a lovely shimmery gold shade, but definitely not worth $12.99 now that I know how much it retails for. It's a decent shadow, but needs some work building up on the lids. I'd go for a drugstore alternative if you're looking for a shade like this one.

A shade I don't reach for too often is NYX's "Fantasy" ($4.50) I couldn't find this exact shade on the website, but there are a lot of similar ones. This is more of a shimmery brown than a champagne, but I like to use this on the outside edge to give more definition to a look. The glitter in this is a bit chunky so blending is a must to make sure it doesn't look odd.

I've saved the best for last. My go to shimmery champagne shades are in Stila's In the Light Palette ($39) and they're just heavenly. I'm obsessed with "Kitten" and "Bubbly". "Kitten" is more of your classic champagne while "Bubbly" has more gold undertones and isn't so in your face. They're buttery, pigmented, blendable, and fabulous.

What is your go to champagne shadow?
