Shimmer/Glitter/Sparkle cosmetic products of course would instantly brighten and improve the overall condition of the eyes. It's like magic. But they don't make it always luxurious and outstanding, Like real pearls, gems and diamonds, there are eye shadows that are of quality - meaning the texture is great, glitters really shine, and they don't make eyes dull with its content. As for me, Bobbi Brown just released one of the finest gems in this product type. See below why.
Bobbi Brown Lilac Eye Shadow (Limited Edition)
SRP: PHP 1600
Availability: Rustan's Department Stores
(-) Versus the photo above, actual product is not too bright but you still can see a lilac - light violet hue.
(+) On arms, we can see how dynamic the product is because it changes according to the lights which should happen with high shimmer/glitter products. It turns pink-purple at yellow light, and bluish-violet in a fluorescent light.
(+) Over a black eyeshadow or cream base, sparkle stands out which is of course good because it provides contrast. When wet, it has a full pastel coverage
(+) Texture is really ultra extra shimmery whether wet or dry

Overall, it's one of the most beautiful shimmering/glittering/sparkling pearl-ish eye colors I've tried, seen and wore. The overall effect is just A+mazing, and while color might be not too lilac, it gives my eyes a bright, luxurious and sophisticated look. I will repurchase this when there are still stocks!
