Looxi Beauty has become one of my favorite brands for their single eyeshadows. The pigmentation is ridiculously good, and their colors are unique. When I did my post about my shimmer eyeshadow palette, I realized that I didn’t actually like a few rows of shadows that were in there. This isn’t a good excuse to buy more eyeshadows, but that’s what I did. I justified it by going with an indie brand. My favorite thing about Looxi shimmers is that they almost all have a unique duochrome effect. The swatches on their website are true to color and a lot better than the ones I photographed, so I’ll insert them into this post as well for you to get a better look.
With this haul I discovered a new holy grail shimmer that I think is SO flattering- Burnt. This shadow has a hint of plum, but isn’t too bright. It can be used as more of a wearable shade because of the undertones and I know I will be reaching for it nonstop. Looxi Beauty describes Burnt as a metallic reddish shade with brown undertones.
Recently, my favorite way to wear shimmer shadows has been layering them over a darker base. I smudge an eyeliner pencil along my lash line, blend it out a bit, then pack the shimmer over. Having the dark base lets the duochrome tones stand out much more than they otherwise would on my skin or a light base.
The only shade that I regret purchasing is Crush. It is a beautiful shade, but I have like three dupes of it already. I think I have enough shimmery light pinks to last a couple lifetimes at this point. When I saw the pan online I thought it was going to be more of a cool toned brown silver. It reminds me of ABH Pink Champagne in person. I haven’t tried packing it over a dark base yet so I should probably try that to see if that would deepen it up. The website describes it as a light pink with brown and silver undertones.
I won’t go through each and every shade I bought, but they are all absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to put them to good use! Looxi is definitely a company I would recommend if you are looking for unique shadows to add to you magnetic palettes. They are $5 each and the shipping was very fast. Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
