GILT | Magnetic Eye Colour

GILT | Magnetic Eye Colour

My March edition of LookFantastic's Beauty Box came packed with some amazing beauty products including this magnetic eye colour stick from Gilt. I'm not usually one for shimmers and tend to rely on more matte shades, partly because the glitter falls everywhere and I end up becoming frustrated and wiping it all off. Being a cream shadow stick, fall out is practically impossible with Gilt. 

 For this look, I used my 2nd Naked Palette and combined the shades 'Snakebite' and 'Suspect' in the corners for a brown smokey, shimmery eye along with my trusty 'Bootycall' in the inner corners and brow bone for a subtle highlight. I then loaded my lid with the magnetic eye colour stick for a strong gold shimmer finish and a super sleek liner to tie it all together. 

The shadow stick is creamy and applies colour instantly, a few layers made a really strong look and once applied it doesn't dry out your lids or become flakey which I sometimes find with cream eyeshadows. The only issue I found is I was still removing flecks of gold shimmer from my lashes a few days later. Definitely a good addition to my make up collection for those days you want something a little different.
