I love a good champagne eyeshadow, and I have more than a few. A great one that I use as my go-to highlighter is Sellout, by Urban Decay. I really adore Urban Decay; they don't test on animals, and a lot of their products are vegan- unfortunately, Sellout is not, so if you're vegan, beware! They'll run you $17 for .05 ounces of product, and they're available from Urban Decay's website, counters at some Macy's stores, and most Sephoras. These eyeshadows are great; they're soft without being powdery, they're incredibly pigmented, and they blend like nobody's business. If you haven't tried these out, you really should; they make some great palettes, too, which are always a great value.
Sellout is a pink-toned champagne color; it's not as intensely shimmery as some of their shades (like Sin, for instance), but it has a shiny, pearlized finish. It's pretty all over the lid with a dark cat eye, strong brow, and red lip for a retro look, but I usually use it as a highlighter under my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eye, which is how I am wearing it in the pictures that follow.

I've got Sellout from above the crease up to the brow bone, and in the inner corner of my eye in the following pictures:

I love this eyeshadow! It's a great formula, and a really versatile color, even if it's nothing exciting. It's been a great, if under-appreciated addition to my makeup arsenal. I like that it catches the light without being shinier than most of my eyeshadow formulas; I hate when a highlighter outshines (literally!) everything else on your eyes, but it still has to do its job and highlight. Sellout delivers! Plus, I feel like it's neither too gold/ yellow or too pink to be really flattering on my skin tone; I think it's a shade that would flatter a lot of different skin tones.
