WHAT DO WE REALLY THINK OF THIS PRODUCT?
Gorgeous packaging ! The aqua demi-matte lids and clear containers are classy, fun and also let you see the true shade of the shadow and how much is left in the tube.
These shadows are smooth, creamy and blendable! No transferring, no creasing and shimmery without being overly glittery. They layer well over each other but wait until the first layer sets before adding more product. Liquid Gold is the only fail. It doesn’t offer the same coverage or vibrancy as for example, Mocha Metal, which is extremely rich toned and opaque. Attempting to build up Liquid Gold left our lids looking greasy and yellow. All other shades were buildable and only increased in vibrancy with each layer.
These shadows are long lasting and set beautifully to give you the perfect “everyday” eye look. The doe-foot applicator makes application a cinch. Just ensure you tap the product over the lid and blend out with your fingertip as letting it dry without blending will result in a crepey mess.
These are extremely inexpensive and amazing quality! The price cannot be beat. If you love liquid shadows and the metallic trend, these are for you!
Dig it or Dump it?
Teen Mashup’s verdict: DIG IT!
