I for one have recently been craving a simple shadow that I can sweep all over the lid, then add some mascara and go. So far I've found three that fit the bill, so I'm here to give you the low down on them today. Btw, heads up to my awesome pen pal Sophie (Sophie Said) for the super cute note paper which was used in the background!
A shadow I've had a love affair with for a while is Natural Collection eyeshadow in Willow (bottom left). It's a gorgeous champagne/taupe shimmery colour which looks beautifully brightening when all over the lid. It's super cheap too, yet still has amazing pigment and as you can see I've loved this shadow long time. Next up is Maybelline Colour Tattoo cream eyeshadow in On and On Bronze (top left). This is the most dramatic colour of the three, but whenever I wear it I often get compliments or questions about what I'm wearing. The consistency is really nice, it's not too creamy that it slides about everywhere but it's still easy to blend. Boy does this shadow have good staying power, I have no worries when I wear this that it's going to end up down my face, even on a 12hr+ day. Last but not least we have the newest edition, M&S's eyeshadow in Taupe (right). As the name states this is a taupe brown colour, more on the brown side than Quarry from the Naked 2 palette, but is a great matte alternative to sweep all over the lid. With great pigment and lovely packaging, this shadow has been my go to in the last few weeks.
Have you got any 'one sweep shadow' suggestions?
