I didn't realize when ordering how different the iridescent shades are when compared to the other shadows. When you see that the product looks white in the jar, that's because it's a white shadow with glitter added. You NEED a sticky primer to get anything even close to the colours you see in the listings. Otherwise it's a very light, sparse glitter. Until I find an allergy-safe primer, this doesn't do much for me. Fast forward to me giving this to my daughter - she doesn't mind how it goes on without primer and it's one of her two favourites. She agrees completely that it looks like crushed diamonds.
"Crushed diamonds" is really the perfect way to describe the way shooting star looks. It's super sparkly and reflects every color you can imagine, so it adds an amazing layer to any look. I love love glittery makeup, and this is one of the pigments I go to when I want to really sparkle like a star!
