the holidays are almost here and i am giddy with excitement! i am just waiting for my favorite soft rock station (yup, not ashamed) to start playing christmas carols. i tend to shy away from shimmer for the most part, but the holidays and all of their glory let me go a little glam. i like to pair a glittery gloss with a glitzy gold eye and i’m loving this primal color eye shadow stick from shu uemura. it goes on smooth as a cream and dries to a pretty powder finish also solving the issue of sparkly dust left on everything by other shiny shadows with its cool twist up tube. application is simple and mess-free so if a champagne toast or holiday soiree presents itself at the last minute, you’re good to glow!
