1. The packaging’s cute.
Plus, if by some bizarre coincidence one wanted to defend themselves utilizing solely the contents of a make-up bag, I really feel like chucking an Ilia Liquid Eyeshadow with all my would possibly would do extra harm than a pan of MAC Delicate Brown, ya know? There’s some weight to these tubes!

You’ll be able to hold it easy and simply put on a single liquid shadow shade as is in your lids, or you may make issues deliciously difficult by layering different liquids, lotions, pencils or powder shadows on prime, aka, the story of my life. What number of occasions have I mentioned to myself, “Ok-Dawg, we’re simply going to make use of this matte liquid taupe and name it a day,” solely to have it flip into an entire factor with cat liner, three shades within the crease and a smudged decrease lash line? TOO. MANY.

Critically, why is the feeling of a doe foot on my lid so soothing? It’s like having a tiny bunny paw lovingly caress my face. I’m additionally very grateful for the precision that doe foots provide now that my lids are getting extra hooded seemingly by the second. I’ve to be very cautious with the place I place my coloration lately, and a doe foot from a liquid shadow provides extra management than a brush loaded with powder shadow.
4. Eye primer? What even is that?
As somebody who’s enthusiastically worn eye make-up for many of her life, I’ve gotta say, within the final 10 years, liquid eyeshadows have simply gotten higher and higher when it comes to put on time. I bear in mind within the ’90s and early Aughts how it might simply disappear out of your lids into some mysterious make-up black gap. Now, there’s so many long-wearing liquids that final from morning ’til night time. It’s superb!
5. There are such a lot of finishes and colours to select from!
Matte, satin, shimmer, and oh, all the brights, neutrals and every little thing in between. The probabilities are countless!
What do you’re keen on about liquid eyeshadow, and which of them are your favorites? My go-to shades as of late are Ilia Fresco (a satiny taupe) and Uncommon Magnificence Almost Impartial (a heat pinkish beige).
