Touch in Sol is a Korean brand not spoken about much, but unlike other hard to find Korean brands you can easily buy this Sephora. I decided to try out some raved about items from this brand and I have not been disappointed (Margaret). Read on more about Touch In Sol Metallist Liquid Foil and Glitter Eye Shadow Duo in #2 Eldora.
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, phthalates. This set contains: – 0.123 oz Liquid eyeshadow
– 0.070 oz Glitter eyeshadow
My Experience with Touch In Sol Eldora 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 labeled as “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 consistency, which when applied, blends easily, giving just enough time before it sets to a almost dry feel. It delivers about 80-90% opacity in one layer, which is 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 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% 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 your vanity table, so it’s best to 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 #2 Eldora is a stunning warm-toned antique gold. It the perfect bridal color and must have for party wear.
Staying Power: I was very impressed by the staying power. I noticed absolutely no creasing for over 8 hours when I wore these. 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 beginners or those at intermediate skill level in makeup. All 3 shades that I have from this range have been consistent in performance. I highly recommend this makeup product.
In the EOTD, I have used Touch in Sol Eldora over the lid with Makeup Geek Bada Bing in the crease and a shade from the Viseart Dark mattes palette on the lower lash line.
