Touch in Sol is a Korean brand not spoken about much, but unlike other “hard to find” Korean brands, you can easily buy products of this brand from Sephora. I decided to try out some raved-about items from this brand one of them was this Touch In Sol Metallist Liquid Foil and Glitter Eye Shadow Duo in #4 Adelio.
A long-lasting, liquid and glitter eyeshadow duo.
What it does: These dual eyeshadows offers rich, metallic pigment with a foil finish in one swipe. With liquid eyeshadow on one side and glitter on the other, these gorgeous shades spotlight eyes. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
This set contains:
– 0.123 oz Liquid eyeshadow
– 0.070 oz Glitter eyeshadow
My Experience with Touch In Sol Adelio Metallist Liquid Foil and Glitter Eye Shadow Duo:
Packaging: I love the concept of 2-in-1 eye product this product offers. One side is labelled as “liquid” while the other side is “glitter.” At a glance, this seems an excellent choice for party- wedding wear/ special occasions which was my intention behind purchasing this product in the first place. I believe this would be great for brides as well.
Texture, Consistency, and Performance: The “liquid” side is basically a creme shadow. It has a smooth, non-gritty texture and whipped consistency which applied and blended easily giving just enough time before it sets to a almost dry feel. It delivers about 80-90% opacity in 1 layer which was very impressive. You could easily use this by itself or top it with the provided glitter side to take it up a notch and add the oomph factor.
The “glitter” side is more like a loose pigment rather than chunky glitter. It is quite finely milled and is not too gritty. This glitter has some some sort of a tacky medium to it so that when you apply it to the skin it doesn’t cause as much fall out and the glitter mesh together and deliver about 50-60% opacity. Top this over the creme shadow to achieve 100% opacity.
Applicators and Application: The liquid side has a flat applicator and you can use both sides to apply product. The glitter side has a small flexible plastic scooper. The glitter side is a bit messy to use and will dirty ur vanity table so best lay down some paper towel beforehand. I use a flat synthetic concealer brush to pack and layer these together. The glitter adheres beautifully onto the creme (even after the creme is partially dry) and they fuse together to create a seamless finish. Hence you need not worry about using a glitter glue.
Shade: Shade #4 Adelio is a gorgeous burgundy red shade. It’s an absolutely stunning and vibrant shade. Both the creme and glitter sides are very similar shade wise, so it’s easy to layer them together for a seamless look. The layered result is a 3d looking textured lid (in a good way). I would not really recommend these to those with already textured or wrinkled lids. These works best on a smooth canvas.
Staying Power: I was very impressed by the staying power. I noticed absolutely no creasing for over 8 hours I wore these. Things to note are that I have normal eyelids and always use an eye primer. There was absolutely no creasing, but being young, I don’t have yet dealt with wrinkled and textured lids. There is a slight amount of transfer onto your fingers if you touch your eyelids but I have not noticed glitter traveling over my face.
Overall, this is a fantastic product. I have always been intimidated by using loose pigments but this product makes it incredibly easy to use with minimal mess hence perfect for those with beginner or intermediate skill level in makeup. I highly recommend this!
In the EOTD, I have used Makeup Geek “Bitten” in the crease and lower lash line with Touch in sol creme shadow and glitter layers over the lid and Kat Von D Metal Crush in “Thrasher” for the pop of gold in the inner corners.
