Kitten Heel

If someone were to ask me what my favorite eyeshadow color of all times would be, I would consider answering with:
Lacome Kitten Heel eyeshadow.
I've had this tiny sample sized eyeshadow quad for almost 4 or so years now, that I had taken from an old box of things my mom no longer used. I think she had either gotten it as a free gift with a purchase somewhere, or she got it at TJ Maxx, I can't remember.
But it's one of the colors in the palette.
I've looked at buying this eyeshadow multiple times, but I just can't bring myself to spend $18 on single eyeshadow! I have seen the eyeshadow in a quad on Amazon for around $9, so I maaaaay buy that. (maybe lol)
This is what it looks like. It's a gorgeous pink tone with a gold sheen.
It just looks great on my skintone, and works with any crease color- black, brown, purple, etc.

So, I recently realized, maybe I do have a dupe for this in my collection after all.
ELF Essentials  Natural Radiance Blusher in Glow
and for comparison purposes, I added in ELF Studio Single Eyeshadow in Sunset, because it has a similar gold sheen like Kitten Heel does, but it has a different base color.

As you can see, Kitten Heel certainly outshines the others with a golden sheen. After seeing Kitten Heel up against Glow, I've noticed KH has a lot more of a plum base than I originally thought, and Glow has a brighter pink base.  But I have to say Glow is rather close to Kitten Heel! Not an exact dupe though, probably sisters! :) Sunset is like a cousin. :)

On a side note, my ELF Essentials Glow blush busted everywhere the first time I opened it, so I dumped it into an empty minerals container I had. I'm definitely going to try this on my eyes tomorrow and see how I like it in comparison to Kitten Heel.

I've heard that Millani Powder Eyeshadow Singles in Illusion is a dupe for Kitten Heel, but I haven't gotten my hands on that yet!

Have you tried any of these items?
What's your all time favorite eyeshadow?


  1. That Kitten Heel color is gorgeous! And the ELF blush looks super similar to it. My all time favorite eyeshadow would have to be MAC e/s in Satin Taupe!

  2. I've heard good things about Satin Taupe, Sarah! :)


Pretty and perfect due to your steady hand.
Apply that lipgloss like it's your job.
