The Shimmer Shadows You'll Wear All Season

Some days deserve a little sparkle.

It’s been a long time since I would put on roll on body glitter before a night out, but I still love having a subtle sparkle here and there! Something about putting on a glittery or shimmery shadow – even if it’s just for a day at the office – feels like a fun treat. You can go bright and bold or as subtle as you want, but a little shimmer is never a bad idea. I loved getting my shimmer on during the summer, and now I’m ready to bring a little sparkle into fall.

With cooler temperatures near, these are the best shimmer eyeshadows you’ll wear all season:


Kosas 10 Second Eyeshadow

These eyeshadows are like anything I’ve ever used before and you might remember the CINCteam talking about them in this post here. It’s a liquid formula, but it dries very quickly leaving behind a gorgeous wash of color all of your lids. There are shades that are more sparkly than others, and the pigments are buildable, so you can layer on as much shimmer as your heart desires.


From the queen herself, these Pat McGrath shadows are insane! They pack a mega sparkly punch and the colors are so gorgeous. If you’re going for a dramatic eye, then these shadows are the perfect place to start.

Fresh Flesh Illuminating Primer

This primer is the subtlest of the sparkly products in this story, but it might be one of my favorites. It’s a primer, so it works great as a base for your foundation, but I wear it on its own sometimes, too. It’s formulated with purple and blue light reflectors, which give such a gorgeous iridescent finish to your makeup!


Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk Luxury Eyeshadow Palette

If you’re looking for a perfect quad palette, then this one from Charlotte Tilbury is the perfect product for an everyday shimmer. It has gorgeous pink and coppery shades that look amazing on any skin tone and with any eye color.

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow

These cream shadows are so good. If you’re in a hurry, these shadows go on so easily and so quickly… just use your finger! The shimmer is subtle but buildable, and works great as a base to build more glitter on top!
