Glitter Eyeshadow Palette - Razzle Dazzle Party Eyes

Glitter Eyeshadows - Get Ready to Sparkle

I'm a real sucker for sparkly eyes at this time of year, and if sometimes I get carried away from the subtle, who cares? It's Christmas after all - or soon will be.

I'm also, just in case you didn't know, a beauty shopaholic (alongside being a fashion shopaholic) so I'm always on the lookout for new treats for shimmer and sparkle. For me they have to be not totally over the top and have that essential staying power which means they won't have totally disappeared after the first hour.

Having travelled recently with another glitter eyeshadow afficionado who I thought had piled it on a bit thick (particularly for daywear) I reviewed my collection and then had a little shop. By far my favourite is Nars
Essential Eye Palette, which may look quite quiet from the picture but believe me, two of the colours, Night Star and Galapagos, are both infused with gold sparkle. It's a clever little palette because it really does have everyting (apart from no brushes, which is a shame) because it combines a shimmery base with the two little sparklers, a lovely deep grey green eyeliner and a shimmery gold plum as well. I love it and it goes with me everywhere.

Two more eyeshadows perfect for hotting up the action are Urban Decay's Midnight Cowgirl - an all time favourite, and Two Faced Galaxy Glam. There's really no excuse not have fun with sparkle eyes this Christmas as nothing is over the top price-wise.

Yesterday I met up with my favourite celebrity ex media hound girl-friend (actually I only have one) and an incredible fashion web designer. All those things that I already knew but hadn't filed under 'prioritise these' fell smartly into place - doesn't that make you feel insecure? It certainly did me. Watch this space, I may have big news for you soon.

Also, in case you haven't gathered, was described on in Sunday Times Style Magazine as the place for 'Online Christmas virgins'. Hmmmmm - I like the phrase though, as you may have gathered from the number of times I've mentioned it since then.....
