This has quickly become my "go to" eye shadow for my cut crease! This color is SO gorgeous and highly pigmented that it literally takes ONE swipe to cover my entire cut crease area! It is super shiny and was everything I was looking for! The one thing I did notice was that when I put it on over my concealer it went on GREAT, but when I did my cut crease just using Micellar water and a cotton swab, it did seem to make the product crease a bit even though it was completely dry. I think the Micellar water likely had something to do with the small creases that specific time it creased. I absolutely adore Gaga, and she hit a grand slam with these shimmery, metallic eyeshadows!! I love it!
Update after using for one month: I still REALLY love this product, but I must have a sensitivity to something in this formula. I find that when I use this for a few days in a row, on the third or fourth day my eyelids get very itchy! One day use, no reaction. Two days, no reaction. Third day… itchy eyelids after about an hour of wear. So unfortunate! I love the way this looks on my eyes and the shade is absolute perfection, but I cannot wear this very often. I guess I’ll save it for special days. But even that makes me nervous because SOMETHING in this isn’t good for my skin/eyes. I don’t really recommend anyone continuing to use a product that very obviously irritates your skin.
Original review: I got the shade retro in the metallic finish. Liquid shadows are tricky and not my favorite formula, but this one is spectacular. For comparison sake, I never liked the Stila liquid shadows at all, nor any other of that highly glittery formula that was popular a few years ago. This one has a truly metallic finish without glitter. The applicator is a soft angled doe foot that makes getting precise application easier. Also, the formula is creamy and spreadable, and doesn’t dry too quickly, but once set, it lasts all day with the same high shine and intensity. I also don’t find this to crease easily. It’s buildable without picking up on itself. All in all, I really really like this and will probably try a few other shades!
I have bought so many containers of this eyeshadow. I'm very disappointed that Haus Labs decided to discontinue this and have replaced it with a different product. I'm grateful that there are still sellers on Amazon offering this product because it is my go to.
The bottle is really lovely and looks more like a fancy lipstick than an eyeshadow. I bought one for myself and one for my daughter. The long holder with the eyeshadow on the end was a bit messy and too much came out at one time but I have got used to it now and just have to put it back inside and then pull it out slowly and hope it has less eyeshadow on. The eyeshadow stays on and is easy to blend. It is easy to remove with makeup remover. The colour is very nice and I have had complements and also been asked what eyeshadow it is. It is the first time I have used liquid eyeshadow but have used chubby eyeshadow pencils as well as the regular powder. I think this is a nice novelty idea but I am not sure for the price it makes much of a difference and I think I will be sticking to regular powder in future. I will continue to use this until it is finished but it is not for me. My daughter seems to like her one so it is all about what you prefer really.
Retro. Colour seems more silvery gold-looking than the light metallic copper it seemed to my eye in the 4th picture but we all know it's hard to get an exact representation on websites.
It goes on easily with the wand and blends well but give it a while to dry before applying mascara - especially if you have hooded lids. Once dry it really stays on and you'll need make-up remover to get it off. Overall I'm very pleased and may well buy other colours. Even though it's a bit more expensive than other similar liquid eye shadows, I think it's worth the money.
I wasn't really expecting to like them, but I did. Nice sparkle. Easy to spread it around on the lid. And it stays put. I put it on at 4am and when I took it off around 6pm, it was still going strong. No creasing. Tough to say about fall out, because I was wearing a mask all day, but I didn't notice any fall out on the mask or my face. It was really nice. I have bought pretty much all the colours, but I've only used a couple on my eyes and they've been great. True to the colour you see on the site. Very happy with them.
I don’t like using celebrity products honestly. But, there isn’t a lot of decent options in the liquid eyeshadow realm in my opinion and this was on sale for prime day. So I tried it. It’s silky, smooth, and doesn’t cake or crack or flake off. I really, really, like it. Unfortunately, I’ll be buying this for the foreseeable future.
