It seems as though all the makeup brands are really pushing the wet look eyelids, whether it be Mac with their latest release of new formulated eyeshadows or good ole Charlotte Tilbury with her kick ass eye colour collection. When I heard that there were ones available in the drugstore, I knew I had to get involved. That yet again got much more interesting once I saw a good few beauty bloggers using them in their tutorials. Sold.
I sense that the wet look lids with jouey skin and a good ole nude lip (or bold even for an all things awesome look for a night out) will be the look of the catwalk, fashion weeks and magazines for times to come. Wanna sit back and watch the trend being slapped in your face or want to be the first to get on the wet look train and call yourself a 'trend setter' for months and possibly years to come. I know what option I'd choose...
My latest try of the 'wet look' shenanigans is the L'oreal Ombre Pure Eyeshadows. I got the shades Smoky and Nude. Out of the ones I've tried, I have found myself reaching for the Nude colour as it is much easier to layer up. The smoky was much darker when I got it home than what it looked in Boots (damn you Boots lighting...) but it's great to mix with Nude for a smokey eye, or even any other eyeshadow from your favourite neutral palette(s) *cough* Urban Decay Naked Palettes *cough*
Now, the application is great. Slight fall down, but I can deal with that. Using a flat brush like the one from (wait for it...) the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (I'll shut up about them now... promise... maybe) is perfect for the job. By using a flat brush it really packs on the colour to your lids and definitely what you want for a look like this. I often like to layer on my trusty Mac Eyeshadow in Woodwinked on top because this just gives the perfect wet look to the Woodwinked eyeshadow which me thinking I'm a genius have always wanted Mac to do. Now no need to nag mac on your twitter dash anymore, just mix a good ole bit of L'oreals creation to create your own little wet look potion. Bingo? I think so.
Have you tried the L'oreal Ombre Pure Eyeshadows?
