Sometimes we take life a little too seriously and don’t let ourselves have fun with makeup. Cosmetics have a lot of purposes for example you can cover up areas you aren’t happy with, you can bring brightness to your face with the right lipstick and/or highlighters, you can make yourself look glamorous with false lashes and smokey eyes, or you can just plain have fun with bright colors and different textures. One such fun product is Jesse’s Girl Fluid Shadow. These pretties were sent for review and I’ve been having a ball with them.
There are one dozen fluid shadows from Jesse’s Girl in shades from light to midtone to dark. There’s a shade (or 12) for just about everyone.
Rose Bronze – not a rose and not a bronze but a bronze that’s been livened with a rose shade, bit a cool as a bronze would be; this one makes a great eyeliner
Enchanted Forest – just as the name implies, a mossy green that’s lightened by the sun
My Blue Heaven – on the verge of a cobalt blue; take a sky blue and add in a bright cobalt and you have My Blue Heaven
Royal Orchid – striking warm purple metallic
Midnight Sky – dark dark blue just as the most perfect night sky would be, including a small amount of silver shimmer that is reminiscent of the stars
Purple Haze – deep dark purple with a brown undertone, because of the depth it doesn’t have as much of the metallic aspect of lighter colors
Penny Arcade – rose copper, this is a standout to me
Gold Dust – bright yellow gold that reminds me of my wedding band gold
Destiny – a taupe with a touch of pewter, another one to crave (described by Jesse’s Girl as a light metallic bronze)
Twilight – light lavender metallic, soft and delicious
Meadow – a pistachio mint metallic green (described by Jesse’s Girl as Sage)
Snowflake – silvery metallic white
You can apply these with the wand that will remind you of a lipgloss wand or you can transfer the color from there onto an eyeshadow brush. I personally feel that I can get more control with a brush. To use it as an eyeliner either use the tip of the wand or use an eyeliner brush or a brush like MAC 219 that comes to a point.
These liquid eyeshadows are recommended for your lower lid, they really won’t dry well if you put them in the crease. I also find that I can’t go back over the color because they’ll crack on me. Of course I don’t have young smooth lids like you probably do.
Where can you have this much fun for just $4.99? With colors like these you won’t be the least bit sorry. — Marcia
