Marbleize your eyes with mark., Rimmel, Maybelline and Physicians Formula!

Slothfulness and skillful makeup are not such a great combination - what it means in my life is that I am generally running out the door to work at the last minute with a minimal amount of makeup on my face!  I usually go with a wash of one light colour for eyeshadow but lately have been trying out various marbleized shadows to see if I can get more eyeshadow bang in the same limited amount of time...

mark. Celestial Eyes Shimmery Cream Shadow - $8 - a metallic finish cream formula shadow that is very buildable - avialble in four shades: Copper Dusk, Mint Sky, Purple Halo and Grey Storm (shown) which is my favourite - it gives just a little bit of silver metallic sheen without being too over the top!  I was actually surprised to discover how much I liked a cream shadow, I've always had this mental block about them thinking they would crease like crazy within seconds but with a primer underneath, this lasted all day, and the really nice thing about cream shadows, they easily go on with your fingers, even better then a brush I find, which is super quick!

They are limited edition so don't wait to order from your Avon rep - 1800-265-AVON or online at

Rimmel Stir It Up - $11.99 - for some reason when I bought this I thought it was powder so I wasn't expecting it to be a cream shadow but I am really liking the marbleized design as a cream since the colours end up getting all mixed together the way they are meant to!  Available in four shades: 400 out of the blue - blue/purple/green (shown), 500 as if - purple/blue/silver, 700 wassup? - peach/brown/pink and 800 no way! - silver/black/white
If you prefer a powder shadow, here are a couple of good choices:

Maybelline EyeStudio Color Pearls Marbleized Eyeshadow - $10.99 - I like that these shadows give you the best of both worlds, one side is plain, the other marbled which makes it easy to do lots of different looks including using the marbleized side as a wash! Available in ten shades: Carbon Frost, Navy Narcissist, Mocha Mirage, Bronze Blowout, Sinfull Sinnamon, Lawless Lavender, Khaki Craze, Tantalizing Teal, Ivy Icon and Silver Starlet
Physicians Formula Eyebrightener - $17.99 - multi-coloured eyelighter available in two shades: natural eyelight or hint of topaz - I read a few reviews of this one before getting and I have a feeling that many people are confused about what this is and are treating it more as a highlighter then a brightener - which in my mind are two different things.  A highlighter is something I would use on my cheek bones, brow bones or inner corners of my eyes, a brightener is something I would use all over my eyelid in place of an eyeshadow to give me a more awake look.  I can see why people were complaining that it wasn't a good highlighter, I would agree with that, it isn't - but as an eyebrightener, it does an excellent job!  I will agree with the people who said that the brush is useless and it's way over packaged!

Are there any I am missing out on?
