Although I love watching people create intricate and artistic eyeshadow looks, I’m not that girl. Give me one eyeshadow that can complete my look and I’m a happy camper.
Enter the Ilia Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tints.
These completely wearable eye tints are highly-pigmented liquid eyeshadows that transform from a liquid into a weightless, metallic powder. Best part? They are completely foolproof. Yes, foolproof. Apply with the doe-foot applicator and then blend out with your fingers or a fluffy brush. (I prefer this set for cream eyeshadow application.) Once set, they don’t budge all day.
Also? CREASELESS. #praisebe
The 99% natural, water-based formula is free of synthetic dyes and crafted with active levels of skin-smoothing Horse Chestnut Flower and antioxidant-rich Honokiol (Magnolia Bark Extract).
Ilia Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tints
The hues range from everyday neutrals to bold pops of color.
You can sweep the cushiony wand along your eyelid for a bold metallic payoff (like the above photo), or use your fingers/brush to gently blend it out to a diffused wash of color.
For best results, Ilia recommends applying this quick-dry formula to clean skin one eye at a time. Plus, you can mix two colors together to create a natural ombre look or create a new color altogether.
My Personal Favorite Shades
blended out for a diffuse wash of color, the way I prefer to wear them
This shade is a light nude with warm champagne pearl. A universally gorgeous shade on any skin tone and also works beautifully on the inner corner of the eyes for an eye-opening look. This is a must for anyone.
A soft rose-gold with pink pearl, this shade is gorgeous on all eye colors, but I think blue-eyed gals will adore it the most!
Sage green with a soft gold shift, this is by far the most unique shade of the line. I love it because it’s almost khaki-like on the lids – super subtle but totally catches the eye. #nopunintended
Grey Lavender with pink & purple pearl – I love greyish lavender shades on hazel and brown eyes especially. I reach for this one frequently.
Taupe brown with a silver shift. This is a beautiful shade for my cool-toned lovers.
