I’m the type of girl who finds glitter appropriate for any occasion. Daytime or nighttime, I love to wear shimmery shades on my eyelids with zero shame. The “Touch In Sol Metallist Liquid Foil & Glitter Eye Shadow Duo” is a double-ended, liquid and glitter eyeshadow duo that claims to be very pigmented and long-lasting! I had initially checked out this product while browsing Sephora.com, but it didn’t have a lot of reviews at the time, so I decided to skip out. I was recently watching Jaclyn Hill and she was raving about how amazing this product is, so I decided to pick it up before all the colors sold out! I got mine in the shade, “Margaret” which is described as a champagne shade online. I do think it is more of a copper-champagne shade just because it has more of a rusty undertone than gold.
I decided to use the M.A.C paint pot in “Soft Ochre” before applying the liquid eyeshadow. I wanted to use a more “dry” formula of primer to prevent any creasing that tends to come with gel or liquid eyeshadow products. I applied the liquid eyeshadow straight from the applicator and onto my eyelids. Then I buffed out the edges and smoothed it over by gently tapping my finger over the lid. Next, I used a blending brush with no eyeshadow on it and tried to blend the edges of the liquid. I took the Makeup Geek eyeshadow in the shade, “Peach Smoothie” to provide some definition to my crease and further blend the eyelid color. I also took another Makeup Geek eyeshadow in the shade “Bitten” and blended it into my outer crease for a wide-eye effect.
Now it is time for the best part of all; GLITTER! I sprayed a flat shader brush with some M.A.C Fix Plus Spray to give the loose glitter something to stick to and act as a mixing medium. Then I applied directly to my eyelids, making sure to not get glitter into the crease and only stick to the lid. I kept my eye closed for about 30 seconds to help it dry and prevent the glitter from transferring onto my brow bone area. I immediately noticed how finely milled the glitter is, making it comfortable and not scratchy-feeling on the eyes. As you can see in the photo, it layers beautifully onto the liquid shadow, giving you a richly pigmented and metallic look!
I wore this makeup look for 10 hours and was pleasantly surprised at how well both the liquid and glitter eye shadow lasted throughout the day. I will say that there was little fallout from some sparkles coming loose and transferring onto my brow bone and cheek bones. Nothing too intense though and certainly not a deterrent from purchasing this product. I was also very happy that this eyeshadow did not irritate my eyelids at all! I read that it is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates or Phthalates, which is always wonderful to discover!
The “Touch In Sol Metallist Liquid Foil & Glitter Eye Shadow Duo” is totally worth it if you are a glitter lover like me! At $25, I would say it’s fairly priced because it’s double ended and a high quality formula! There are 5 shades in the range, so you’re bound to find a color that suits your preference best!
