Beauty Bargain: Bejeweled Eyes

So I've decided that for this magical month of December, in the spirit of joy and giving and vegan eggnog, I will be spilling the secrets of  many more of my favorite beauty bargains and favorite products!  These make great treats for your most glamorous holiday party self, as well as excellent gifts that your friends and family will actually use and cherish.  And today we will be starting with this alchemical blue jewel-toned eye shadow, the perfect color of a shimmering peacock's tail, that kept popping up in Fall and Spring Runway shows this year:

Jeremy Scott Runway Spring 2013
Anna Sui Fall Runway 2012

Moschino Cheap and Chic Runway Spring 2013

I LOVE adore and worship blue jewel-toned eyeshadows, I think they are incredibly flattering on everyone and every skin tone, and they make the perfect festive holiday eye.  I often find that blue eyeshadows reduce the appearance of redness in and around the eye, so if you have been over-indulging or under-sleeping this season, this is the eyeshadow for you!  And yes, drumroll, this is another beauty bargain.  This L'Oreal HIP Studio Secrets Eye Shadow Duo in Showy combines the perfect jewel tone blues, and you can use them together or separately.  I have had this little duo forever, and it is still gorgeously bright and shiny.  And it's $7.99Contrast that with the equivalent Nars shades below...
