Happy Sunday everyone! 🙂
This next review is from Sephora. It is my first time trying out the brand “In Touch SOL”
& let me tell you, I lovee it! I had first encountered this item when my niece got her makeup done & it was one of the shadows the MUA had used on her. The pigmentation is incredible! I’ve always wanted a glitter shadow & it was also metallic?! I’ve never worked with anything like it, I knew I had to get it! There were a number of colors to choose from but I went with the colors that I have been most attracted to this Summer (rose-gold, mauve, copper tones) I picked up 2 eye-shadow duos & definitely had to get their lipstick duo also.
The packaging is shaped like a diamond, not in a regular box. I actually like the shape & design of it. Very cuute & professional graphic image on the box. It is dual sided, where you can visibly see the product & the color scheme choices. I like that it is conveniently packaged in 1 stick with its own applicators. As you can see, the box matches the middle of the duo stick to the type of product. Here, we have the navy blue box matching the navy blue duo sticks indicating it is as an eye shadow, vice versa with the silver being a lipstick.
The metallic liquid, is indescribable! & the foil glitter on top ties it all together. The pigmentation is amazing & is an excellent combination. Glitter + Metallic compliment each other so well.
“Penny”- Pink Brown
The applications are similar in color but one has more of a metallic gloss, which you can see some silver shimmer in there.
Both lipstick and eyeshadow have a lip-gloss applicator. For the eye-shadow the lip-gloss applicator is used for the liquid metallic shadow and on the opposite side of stick is a plastic applicator for the loose glitter foil. I was able to apply the liquid shadow with the applicator however, it is a lot of thick product. I would take some on the back of my hand and go in with another brush to pack on the product and easily distribute the shadow a little easier on my lid. This way I had more control of the shadow. When applying the foil, I used the same technique instead of using the applicator it was easier to go in with a brush. I would also spritz some setting spray on my brush so that I get a more pigmented look & so the glitter can stick to the applicator. Keep in mind the loose glitter results in a lot of fall out! **You may want to work fast with the liquid shadow because the liquid shadow dries quickly & that is your base for the glitter to adhere to.
You can definitely see how different the look can portray using light versus without light. This is surely a product worth trying!
Stay bold, stay GOLD 🙂
