I’m currently in love with Jordana Made to Last Liquid Eyeshadow ($4.99) so, I’m going to do my very best to convince you to love them too! For Spring 2016, Jordana introduced a selection of six shades of creamy, metallic liquid eyeshadows in nude, natural shades.
I admit, I was worried. Metallic typically translates as frost to me! There has been that rare occasion I’ve fallen in love with a metallic finish lipstick, gloss, or eyeshadow but most of the time I like the idea of metallic a lot more than the actual look of it on me.
Made to Last Liquid Eyeshadow brings me way back to the Cargo Metallico Eye Kit! These are such wearable, shimmery, gorgeous metallics!
Shimmer and glitter haters need not apply here as Jordana Made to Last Liquid Eyeshadow bring intense sparkle! I was a little worried about that! I know, I know! Self-proclaimed shimmer and glitter lover like myself worried about shimmer? How unusual! But yeah, the sparkle did worry me a little bit as I’m getting older look a bit ridiculous with hardcore glittery eyeshadow. Thankfully this sparkle translates well on my lids and has a high metallic sheen finish that looks incredible.
This formula is quite thick and creamy but also thin enough to spread easily onto lids. I would say it isn’t a novice cream eyeshadow formula though as it isn’t easy to blend for those that are new to cream eyeshadows. However, if you consider yourself an expert at cream eyeshadow you shouldn’t have a problem. The consistency is quite wet and takes several seconds to set. I see it being potentially a hate formula due to the thickness, wetness, and slow dry down. Personally, I didn’t have issues with it myself. I thought they blended out well and easily enough with a sheer color pay off on the initial layer that built upon easily and looked intense on the second layer! I love how customizable these are. If you apply them sheer they have the finish of an eye gloss but they build easily and get deeper and richer with each application plus they aren’t prone to caking or creasing no matter how much you apply and have a slower dry down which means you have plenty of time to fiddle, play, and blend the formula out. I also adore the light-reflecting pearl in each as they give a beautiful sparkly metallic finish that catches the light brilliantly.
They wear is great as well at around 8 hours without primer. The color did not lose intensity nor did it crease or cake up on my drier eyes for that time.
By the way, Immortal Metal is kinda the taupe to end all taupes! It is stunning on brown eyes!
Jordana did a fabulous job with this formula. If you love cream eyeshadows you’re bound to adore these.
