Snow Falling on Eyelids

Sparkly!!!The recent manic Sephora spree that resulted in the purchase of the Becca Shimmer Powder (see Gypsy Rose) also spawned frantic impulse buys of a certain Shiseido eyeshadow. Several of us had been admiring it for hours upon the lids of Chattykathy, and by the end of the day the urge to purchase was so strong that when we spotted the black and white stripes of Sephora, we all dashed inside. Annieytown, Lupa, Brooklyntbone, Cavewoman and I all bought it, completely depleting the stock.

The eyeshadow of which I speak is Shiseido Hydro-Powder Eye Shadow in Whitelights, and it is sparkly heaven in a little pot. It's a cooling, cream/gel eyeshadow that dries to powder on the lids, and the color is like glistening snow! It's sheer and white with tiny bits of white glitter that look festive and pretty without being juvenile or trashy. I like it on its own, as a thin layer over other shadows, or just dotted on the browbones and inner corners. It is a party for the eyelids, I tell you.
