It’s Tuesday! Ok, I’m really not that excited that it’s Tuesday. Let’s try that again… it’s Tuesday. Wah wah… wahhhh.
Well if anyone else has a case of the Tuesdays, be prepared to witness some pure awesomeness. It may be just what you need to get rid of “the Tuesdays.”
It’s the Purminerals Liquid Metal Eyeshadow 4 piece Stick Kit! Awesome, right? *high five*
Website description: Turn up the heat with Pür’s long-wear Liquid Metal Eye Shadow Sticks. Available in four molten metallic hues with iridescent shimmer, our smudge-proof shadow sticks capture the light from all angles to create a megawatt, multidimensional effect. Effortlessly apply as an eye crayon or liner and feel the creamy, water-resistant formula cool the skin as it colors.
The set is $22.00 for 4 pencils (0.28oz ea). It says that it’s a $60 value, although I can’t find these for individual sale anywhere so I’m not sure where they came up with that price. Oh well, I’m not losing sleep over it.
The set comes with 4 colors.
- Midnight Chrome – sparkling jet black
- True Cobalt – metallic midnight blue
- Steel Envy – dark jade green
- Iced Bronze – rich chocolate shimmer
My thoughts: Color me pleasantly surprised by these. I love that you can use them for either liner or eyeshadow. I expected them to crease, but they don’t (with base)! They apply really smooth with really great color payoff. I wouldn’t describe them as “liquid” though. It has a different consistency as, say the NYX Jumbo Pencil or the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencils, which both have a creamier formula. These have a dryer formula.
The only thing I’d nitpick at is the lasting power, they start fading after about 4 hours. They also don’t show up very well in the waterline (if you’re using it as a liner). The lids to the pencils also fall off easily.
Glitter rating: 3.5 / 5
