Victoria's Secret -- BEAUTY RUSH Luminous Shadow

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that I only wear eye shadows on special occasions.
I feel like it's too much if I include a smokey eye in my everyday makeup for school so I stick with the neutral look.

Lately though, I've been having fun experimenting with different eye looks.
Now that I only have less than 2 months left of school, I have a lot of senior events coming up like Senior Awards Night, Pre-Prom Fashion Show, PROM, and of course, Graduation. :D

Victoria's Secret BEAUTY RUSH Luminous Shadows$4.25 each

I've been enjoying trying these Beauty Rush eyeshadows.
I think I've created atleast 5 looks using these products.
I like all the fun colors.
It's super pigmented which is one of the things I love about it.
It also has a built-in sponge applicator, but I still use my brush to even it out.
I can bring it with me anywhere I go.

These are the names of the colors that I got:

1. Brown To Earth -- a dark brown color
2. Copper -- an orange-y, coral shade
3. After Midnight -- a purple-ish, blue color
4. Petal To The Metal -- a fuchsia, lavender color
5. Emerald City -- a light shade of jade

My favorite colors are Emerald City and After Midnight.
After Midnight works great for a smokey eye night look.
And Emerald City is perfect for a light day look.

Here is a swatch of each of the colors.

As you guys can see, they're all very pigmented.
It also has shimmer, perfect for a formal look.
I used the built-in sponge applicator for these swatches but I highly recommend using an eyeshadow brush afterwards to spread it throughout your eyelids.

I give this eyeshadow a 3.5 out of 5.
