Available in five gorgeous shades - these liquid eyeshadows are perfect as a base for any eye look. They are lightweight, effortless to blend out, buildable in pigment, and moisturizing due to the hyaluronic acid & calamine powder that is in the formula. Oh & budge proof and super long lasting too! 🌸 From top to bottom: ✨ Secret 💕 Naked 💕 Charm 💕 Spotlight 💕 Delight 💕 Available at touchinsol-us.com for $16 each! 🌸 * PR / Gifted, but my thoughts are always 💯
Eyeshadows with a different texture—creamy or liquid?
Speaking of eyeshadows, powder is the most popular formula because these eyeshadows are usually easy to blend, and packed in a palette, really easy to carry. But in recent years, there are many different kinds of formulas released. I am a glitter person, so I really love the Super Shock shadows and Stila Glitter & Glow liquid eye shadows. Today I picked two with pink and purple undertone and blue glitters inside to show the differences between them. Let’s start with the cheaper one. The super shock shadow is a special formula from Colourpop, and there are several textures, such as matte, glitter and metallic. They are creamy powder with a unique bouncy-like texture. This color is called Party of Five, which is the 5th-anniversary limited shadow, but it is so popular that the brand kept it. It’s a warm burgundy shade with blue glitters inside. The pigmentation is great, and I think the best tool for this formula is your finger because it’s so creamy, and brushes can’t grab the color. And the undertone of this shadow is not too light, so I usually use it all over my eyelids and deepen my outer corners with a darker matte shade, and the blue glitters really pop out. The only weakness is that the longer you wear it, there are less glitters. Since it’s only $6 and can’t be used up in several years, I am still a big fan of this collection. For the liquid eyeshadows, I think Stila is one of the first several brands to release this kind of product. The first products basically only have big glitters inside, and then they launched several duo-chrome colors, and Sea Siren is one of them. This is a bright lavender shade with bright blue pearl glitters. It is lightweight and dries quickly with no fallout. The applicator is also soft and easy to use, and I always use my finger to blend the edges after applying on my lids. For me, this color is too light to wear along, so I always use it on the center of my eyes and as a highlighter on the tip of my nose. Comparing these two, the Colourpop one is more affordable and can be used alone, and the Stila one is shinier and lasting longer. I can’t give up either of them, and I think you can make decisions based on your budget.

Solid vs. Liquid - Eyeshadow Edition
Hello lovies! Today I’m bringing you Battle of the eyeshadow: liquid vs. solid! We all love our eyeshadows but have you ever stopped to think “hey which type of consistency do I really like 😳?” Well look no further because I’m bringing you some insight into my opinion on the matter! For some background information I have a light to medium skin tone with a pink undertone and I have oily eye lids. The fact that my lids are oily makes it tricky to find good eyeshadows! Let’s begin with Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow in shade Globe. This liquid eyeshadow retails for $28.00, slightly on the more expensive side. I won this item in a giveaway and it’s my first and only KOSAS item. This claims to be a 10 second eyeshadow, fast drying, and crease resistant formula. It’s a neutral champagne shade which is ideal if you’re looking for a natural makeup look! Now when I say this liquid eyeshadow is quick drying and long lasting - I mean it truly is! Even my swatch was difficult to wash off because this eyeshadow is so long lasting. I love that it is so quick to use and you get an amazing color pay off. Unfortunately the loops I had done with natural light could not be uploaded and I had to take new loops on a cloudy day. However, you can still see how pretty it is. Next, is my solid/powder eyeshadow COLOURPOP - Birthday Cake Super Shock Pigment Duo in shade Extra Sprinkles. This eyeshadow pigment is one of two that comes in the Birthday Cake bundle ($12.00). These are super cute and fun but don’t have the best color pay off as you would expect. This collection was a limited edition collaboration with an ice cream company hence the cute name and shade. As you can see in the last loop, this solid eyeshadow does not compare to the liquid shadow. You can also see how the both shades look on my skin tone but I believe they would look great on any skin tone. In the end, I have to say my preference regarding different forms of eyeshadow is the liquid form! Funny enough it’s my first liquid eyeshadow and I think I know what I’ll be buying with my Sephora gift cards now! It’s so easy to use and color pay is so extreme you would think your makeup is edited! Hope this mini review helps you in deciding which eyeshadow you prefer!
Spotlight Color of Stila Liquid Eyeshadow
If you are addicted to beauty, you will never miss out the Stila Liquid Eye Shadows. It has been popular for a while. That’s why I got a group of them lol. This eye shadow glitter will definitely improve your eye look. It’s absolutely one of the most essential element of creating a fantastic look for night life. I got differently colors that could fit in various eye look. But, before I tried them all at the same time, I never noticed that the texture of the same series products would works so differently. See the 2nd picture, some of shades works so well, the color and the sparkles mixed evenly, like ‘Kitten Karma’, which is my favorite. I like Monarch very well too. It’s easy to apply and the color is so good. I’m not very into ‘Dimond Dusk’ and Plum on. Dimond Dusk sounds very cool and sparkle, but the glitter looks so dull, and the formula is kind dry that could not be applied evenly. Plum on looks like a lipstick? The color is too dark. And I don’t see any glitters or sparkles into this one. How to use it: Rather than apply it directly on my eye lids, I will blend it over my fingers then tab it evenly on my my eye lid. Need to notice, directly use the brushes will leave too much glitters on the eye lids, which is hard to clean up. Or, I will scrape some glitters leave on the top of the tube, then tap into eye lid.

The Best and Mehs of Too Faced
I am unashamed to love kitschy packaging. So over the years, Too Faced definitely drew me in. Most of their products have been wins for me, but I did find one dud + a trend. Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette Not every shadow in this palette is buttery or easy to blend (i.e. Cherry Cordial and Black Forest orest Truffle). But the nude colors are wonderful. Salted Caramel is still one of my favorite one-shadow colors of all time, and I use Semi-Sweet to fill my brows every day. Too Faced - Melted Matte-Tallic Liquid Lipstick (Shade: Sell Out) It has a very thin texture, and dries down super fast. it lasted through my 9-5 work day, surviving both lunch and coffee. It only started to break down at the end of the day, making it look like blotted lipstick. But for its opacity, it's definitely a fav. Too Faced - La Creme Mystical Lipstick (Shade: Pink Chocolate) A very balmy lipstick that goes on evenly and almost glossy. Smells like delicious lemonade, and the sturdy packaging makes it feel royal. Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara I have tried a lot of mascaras, and this one stands out for making lashes look feathery. The wand makes it easy to separate lashes evenly, and the thick formula makes them look thick from the root. Out of all these products, I only had one 'meh.’ Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette Now discontinued, but I think it follows a trend in Too Faced. Just like the Chocolate bar, the dark matte shades with sparkles are hard to blend and build up. The sparkles also seem to blend away... The brown shades like Peanut Butter perform well, but if you're going to get a product with Too Faced's strengths, might as well get an all nude palette.

MAC PRO LONGWEAR PAINT POT
MAC - Pro Longwear Paint Pot Eyeshadow Meet my everyday go-to eyeshadow. It’s beautiful creamy, smooth to apply and gives off the perfect amount of pigment. The shade Groundwork is my perfect taupe brown that’s suitable for all occasions! It’s a solid cream product that is emollient enough for my finger or brush to pick up a lot of color! I’ve had this for at least 2+ years and it hasn’t even started to dry out yet- most cream eyeshadows dry out within months! My trick is to store them upside down. The longevity is insane and it never creases on me even when I’ve worn it for 12+ hours! I have this in three shades and definitely want more in the future! Have you tried this before or would you?
