[Updated 6/23] The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

Sparkles Thread.jpg

 

Calling all fellow glitter enthusiasts in the BIC! Who’s with me? 😊💎

 

If I didn’t already make it abundantly clear in my Community welcome post, one thing you must know about me is I love sparkly products. I’ll take your glassy glosses, subtle shimmers, diamond dusts, chrome metallics, sequins, glitter and more – if it’s shiny, I need it. (In fact, I probably already have it!)

 

Some of you have already shared with me some of your glitzy go-tos that I’ve already adopted into my own stash. Thanks to @gonerogue, I get my Fenty glow on with FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA - Fairy Bomb Glittering Pom Pom and FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil Cognac Candy. I bathe almost daily in Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder Conceited courtesy of @Mcakes.  And I will gladly blame @Anastasiya13@PrettyPaint, and @meganlisa on my new Pat McGrath collection. Did I mention that I’m easily enabled?

 

That’s why I decided we needed a thread to serve as our place to SHINE! In addition to hearing more about your sparkly standbys, I’m also looking forward to trying out everything shiny and *NeW* and getting my swatch on. Got a shimmery swatch request? I am more than happy to be your human disco ball. IT IS MY DESTINY, and my future is as bright as my highlighter. 🌟

@lmaster, Thank you! ♥️ Also, sorry for my late reply. I didn't get a notification about your tag due to the bug.

Re: [Updated 6/23] The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

No worries! @curlychiquita I know that was a struggle, thank goodness it's fixed now 🙌

Re: [Updated 6/23] The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

@curlychiquita *gasp* new Pat! The burgundy shades look gorge on you. Also gotta love all the shade names she comes up with. 😆 Do I need this one?!

Re: [Updated 6/23] The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

@AlexBT, it's a beautiful palette!

Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

This sparkle lover was lucky enough to get my hands on a brand-new Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Eyeshadow Palette 12 x 0.03 oz/ 0.95 g, and as a compulsive collector of all Naked Palettes, needless to say I'm stoked.Urban Decay Naked Ultraviolet PaletteUrban Decay Naked Ultraviolet Palette

Ultraviolet, at first glance at least, is probably the least "neutral" out of all the naked palettes. I know what you're probably thinking: How "naked" can these aMaZinGLy pearly-holo-purples possibly be, unless you're a unicorn? But don't be alarmed -- this palette is much more wearable than it seems, while still satisfying your shimmer craving! On to the swatches:From top to bottom: Trippin', Mind Slip, Dazed, Hacked, V.R., LucidFrom top to bottom: Trippin', Mind Slip, Dazed, Hacked, V.R., Lucid

As far as creating looks, the purples are certainly vivid, but their shifty iridescent finishes make them super easy to blend or use as a topper, especially when paired with the more neutral peaches and matte browns. Since the shades are basically half neutral, half "bold," you can easily create looks that are on completely opposite ends of the drama spectrum, depending on your mood. I, of course, felt the need to use all of them on my face at the same time. I call this look: "If Naked 1 stuck its finger in a light socket -- in a good way." Or maybe… "NAKED on a neon sign." 😉

Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

@AlexBT I love my Naked Palette

RE: Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

This palette is so beautiful! I stop collecting Naked palette but I might try this one! I love purple eyeshadows!

Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

Absolutely Stunning look! @AlexBT 

Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

Eeeek so pretty @AlexBT!! Do I really need yet another Naked palette to add to my collection? ...I think the answer is yes. Also I always love the double-ended brush that they come with. 

Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

@AlexBT  I have just received my today!!! Such gorgeous colors and you look sooo pretty!! I hope I can get as close to gorgeous as you did!!! Looking so forward to playing with this palette!!! ☺️💜

Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

@yankeefaithful yesssss can't wait to see your lewks!!! I love the brush too - I remember being so sad when Reloaded didn't come with a brush because collectively the Naked brushes are my fave and I look forward to each one being a little different.

RE: Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

I ordered mine. All of the colors are beautiful! I have green eyes, and I can’t wait to use this palette to make my eyes pop!

Re: RE: Re: The Sparkle Thread: Share Your Love for all that Shimmers!

@tiff31 wooo green eyed gals unite! Can't wait to see what you come up with when yours arrives. 🙂
