To choose the best iridescent eyeshadow, you should think about what type of eyeshadow you want, what colors you like, and whether you want any special features in your eyeshadow. Eyeshadows come in various forms, such as cream, powder or liquid, and each one has its pros and cons. It is important to consider the amount of pigment and the amount of shimmer as well as the actual color of the eyeshadow that you choose. There are also a few additional considerations regarding the brand, price, and available packaging when choosing your iridescent eyeshadow.

The most common form of iridescent eyeshadow is probably pressed powder, which is what most people think of as the traditional form of eyeshadow that comes in a compact. Though traditional pressed powder has its advantages, many people enjoy the added benefits of other forms of eyeshadow. Liquid, gel, and mousse are also common and many consumers feel that they provide a smoother, richer, color application. Loose powder can offer more control over the color that is applied, but it can also be quite messy.


The color of your iridescent eyeshadow should be an important part of deciding which one is best for you. The hue, or color, will determine what styles it will look best with and how well it will compliment the color of your eyes. Some iridescent eyeshadows may also have more pigment than others, which will make a difference in how deep the color looks when applied and how long it will last without fading. The amount of shimmer or glitter in an iridescent eyeshadow should also be considered, and different brands might have different types or amounts. For example, one brand may have a very subtle sheen while another brand has larger specks of glitter that stand out in the eyeshadow.

Consider the brand of iridescent eyeshadow that you choose. Different brands are sold at different prices, and it will be up to you to decide what price you are comfortable with. High-end name brands may offer higher quality eyeshadows, but if they are out of your price range, there are more affordable options that will still allow you to have a nice iridescent eyeshadow.

Be aware of is how the eyeshadow is packaged. Some brands may offer palettes with several coordinating iridescent colors. This option is helpful if you like to wear more than one eyeshadow color at a time and want to have multiple choices that are all iridescent and look good together. You can buy the colors together instead of buying them one at a time.
