EOTD: Topshop Mousse Eyeshadow – Glint

Tested out my new Topshop Mousse Eyeshadow in Glint!

Swatched (on right):

On my eyes, it’s the perfect shade of brown with subtle shimmers.

Pros:

Lasts all day long for me over UDPP. Beautiful shade of brown makes it a great neutral for conservative work places or school when you don’t want to look too made up. Looks great paired with a dark winged liner for extra definition or on its own.

Cons:

Contains some red undertones which may be less than desirable for people battling redness on their eyelids or are prone to looking puffy. Also may be prone to creasing without UDPP as a base.

My Thoughts:

Nice, moussy texture, dries down to a non-sticky finish but not powdery. Sheer to medium pigmentation and takes some effort to build up. Blendable and applies fairly easily even for makeup beginners. Perfect for a sheer wash of colour on the lids, performs much better as a base shade by layering powder eyeshadows on top for more definition. Great for people new to cream shadows as this is foolproof.

Can be crumbly if you apply too much at one go so moderation is key and less is truly more. I find that fingers are the best tools to use with these shadows as using a brush tends to make it crumble even more.

At this price point, the pros outweigh the cons and I’d say go for it! I have been using this daily ever since I had gotten it and I love it for school 🙂

Price:

$19/5g at Topshop (Only ION, Knightsbridge, Vivocity)
