Not “guilt,” like in how Tabs should feel after he exercises his claws on the cushions of my favorite chair, but “gilt,” as in BECCA’s $24 Eye Tint in Gilt, which gets extra Unsung Hero holiday party brownie points today for the tiny pieces of golden glitter swimming in its shimmery bronze base, and for its fabulously long-wearing, water-resistant cream eyeshadow formula.
I can apply a layer on my lids first thing in the morning, spend the day running errands for Santa (Tabs), head back home at night, and hang out by the tree after dinner with Gilt shimmering and shining under the tree’s blinking lights, even when I skip wearing a primer.
And the silky formula is finger-friendly, meaning that it’s easy to blend with fingers or a brush, which is great, because being able to use my fingers with it saves me time and energy for critical Christmas tasks, like stockpiling boxes of Dark Chocolate Stars from Trader Joe’s, or hitting the play button so that his royal highness can re-watch his favorite holiday videos.
I’m pretty sure this is what Tabs’ dreams are like…
The Unsung Heroes series, a long-running series here on Makeup and Beauty Blog, features some of my favorite permanent collection products from a variety of brands.
