This is a great highlight shade! Champagne is a ivory shimmer with a slight hint of beige. I use it as a highlight for neutral and warm toned eye shadow looks and use CG Pink Chiffon to highlight more cool toned looks. Both have great pigmentation. I would not use Champagne all over the eye since it can be too frosty for that, but as a highlight it gets an A+ from me. And it's pretty cheap too!
i love this CG eye shadow! i knew i'd like it since i first picked it up in the drugstore. it's very pigmented and my favorite color to use for highlighting. this has definitely became an essential to have in my collection!
This has been my HG of eye shadow for the past 15 years! It gives the perfect shimmer and really brightens my eyes. I use it every day either alone or under other shadows. It is a perfect base for all other colours. It stays on all day for me too. I can never be without this shadow and for the price, it is so worth it.
I have not been able to find a high end product that is as well pigmented and shiney as this. The closet I have found is Sweet Satisfaction in MAC's Prolongwear formula. The Color isn't the same put it goes on beautifully just like CG Champagne.
Great buy! Well worth the couple bucks.
First eyeshadow I ever bought, one of the few eyeshadows I've hit pan on. LOVE it! It goes perfectly with any other color, can be used as a highlighter all over the face, or can be worn alone on the eyelids to brighten up your face. A very multipurpose product for a cheap price, definitely a HG for me. I don't think this would be good for more mature women though because it is quite shimmery.
As a highlighter, I give this a 4, and as an eyeshadow, a 2 at least for my wrinkly old hooded lids!
It is SHINY!!!!! and as such works a treat on unwrinkled brow bones, tear duct areas, tops of cheekbones, collar bones, in fact anywhere you need a dash of light.
In fact I own MAC's Shroom, as well as the Chanel Lotus twin Cliniques' Champagne Shimmer and this is pretty close to the colour. BUT NOT the SHINE factor. This is at least 3 or 4 times shinier than those two and unlike those two, the colour doesn't show up much at all.
When on it just looks like you "pearl-ized" that area of skin. Quite shiny, and in the case of my wrinkly hooded lids it adds a pearl-ized lizard skin effect. Which if I was a dinosaur, I'm sure it would be downright pretty! But speaking from a purely human perspective lizard skin on my eyes is less than attractive. You younger ones will look fine I'm sure.
For traveling, a powder highlighter is ideal if you are like me and prefer to just use carry on luggage, and not use up your precious liquid allowance on anything that can be a powder formulation.
Fortunately when using it as a highlighter (where it truly shines if you pardon my pun) you can "sheer" out the application by LIGHTLY stroking the applicator where you want it to go.
That is why I will buy it, putting up with the cheapy plastic container and the annoying closure which will chip nail polish in a flash.
I am actually a fan of the scratchy little foam applicators since they pick up a fair bit, and you can pack it on where it needs to go. If I used this on my eyelids, then I'd need a softer foam or a brush.
I first bought this color in 1997. Yep. Best. Highlighter. Ever.
Love This!This is a cooler toned champagne which is nice.This could be used anywhere you need you face to be brighter.3$ for 2.5 grams you can't beat that.
I've been through 6 of these ever since I tried my first one a few years back. This color has become essential for my collection! Its the perfect color to be alone or match with any other color eye shadow. Try a smokey eye with it and you'll never go back to silver! This shadow works as the best highlighter I've used as well. Put it on the inner corner of your eye to brighten up your look, make you look awake and freshened up for the day. Use it on the top of your cheek bones as a face highlighter, put it on the top of your nose or your cupids bow to make your lips look fuller! Another great idea is to but it on your chest and but a bit of bronzer around the outer edge of your chest and go up a cup size instantly! I will always repurchase this. Cg eyeshadows have dissapointed me before but this one never did. Its flawless, doesn't fade, very pigmented, no fallout and no chunks of shimmer its all very well blendable as well!
Been using this for years as a highlighter, works good for under brows, top of cheekbones, inside corner of eyes where it meets the bridge of the nose, or anywhere I want to add a little shimmer to brighten up my face!
