So I posted a sneak peek of the newly launched Luna By Lisa Liquid Eyeshadows to my Instagram and Facebook and you voted YES to a review, so let's get started!!
If you're new to Luna by Lisa Jordan, let me tell you a little about her. Otherwise known as "Just Jordan", Lisa Jordan is a professional makeup artist and fashion & image consultant from Cork City. She launched her beauty line ''Luna by Lisa" last September. So far she has brought out a Lip Gloss collection, a leave in miracle hair treatment and her newest venture is with her liquid eyeshadows, which is what we will be taking a look at today.
Described as a "Liquid Pigment for everyone" the two liquid eyeshadows come together in one set priced at €25 - shades Rose Quartz and Midnight Onyx. On first impression, I was a bit apprehensive as to how chunky the glitter looked in them, but nonetheless, I caved and picked them up!
MIDNIGHT ONYX is described as "A smoky midnight grey embellished with silver glitter, this sultry shade is perfect for adding drama to your look. Easy to wear and apply, Midnight Onyx will soon become your go-to shade for after dark".
ROSE QUARTZ is described as a "soft rose liquid pigment enhanced with ultimate shine and showstopping sparkle. An adaptable shade that works with any eye colour – wear Rose Quartz and shine bright every day.
Surprisingly, once I swatched the liquid eyeshadows they didn't feel as grainy as I had thought they might and the glitter was super sparkly. These wouldn't be for a day to day look - more so for nights out! In the image above you can see that the liquid eyeshadows can be applied directly from the doe foot applicator (blend with a brush or your finger once it's on the lid) to work on their own, or layered over an eyeshadow.
The silver sparkles in Midnight Onyx did seem more chunky than the gold sparkles in Rose Quartz which blended down more evenly. In certain lights, Midnight Onyx did look a little on the green side than the black/grey but this will depend on whether you apply it over a shadow or not. Rose Quartz is definitely my favourite out of the two (sidenote: it's not rose gold in colour..... just gold!)
One word of advise though. Don't layer this product, as it will break up. For testing purposes I applied one layer, then went in to see if I could add a second to intensify it. Once it's dried on the lid, leave it be. Otherwise you'll end up with something like this!!
I have to say, I was a bit dubious to begin with because they are quite sparkly but.... I do like them. I think in particular they will suit people who find glitter/powder pigments too difficult or messy to work with. These liquid piments will add lots of glitz to your eye look in seconds and for that, they are quite unique.
The Liquid Eyeshadows were released into pharmacies nationwide last week. So far they are available online from the >Luna website< >Meaghers Pharmacy< and >SamMcCauley< websites.
