PS Liquid Metal EyeshadowThe post I did for the Liquid Glitter Eyeshadows from Penneys aka Primark went down really well here on Beautynook. I came across the new new PS Liquid Metal Eyeshadow version a while ago, and thought they would be worthy of a post too. You makeup lovers love your bargain finds, as do I πŸ™‚PS Liquid Metal Eyeshadow

Now don’t worry, I know these are a blatant rip off of the Stila offering. Unfortunately this is the norm in the beauty industry. But having said that, a shimmery liquid eyeshadow is a liquid shimmery liquid eyeshadow. And there has been plenty of them over the years.Penneys makeup

Like the glitter version, there is four colours of the PS Liquid Metal Eyeshadow to choose from. They’re pretty similar colours too, there’s just no chunky glitter in them. They are in a 4.5ml plastic tubes with a doe foot applicator. And they will set you back €4 a piece. The name of them is pretty self explanatory. They are a shimmery/metal liquid eyeshadow.irish beauty blog

The colour choices are not revolutionary, but they are all super wearable. Like the Liquid Glitter Eyeshadows, in my humble opinion, the darker colour choices seem to be a bit more opaque from the get go. I always bring it back to the price point for things like these though. For €4, I think they’re worth it and they work well enough.

The four colours available are:

Frosted, which is a light frosted cool toned pink.

The wear time on the PS Liquid Metal Eyeshadows, for me, is grand. If you don’t suffer from any oiliness on your lids, I think you’ll be safe enough using them on their own. They do take some time to dry down though. And the more you apply, the more blotchy they can become and the more you can feel them on your lids. So be careful if you’re looking for more opaqueness from them. I’ve had some flaking after applying a thicker layer of them too. In simpler terms, be prepared to work for your shimmer πŸ™‚ I think I am going to enjoy them as cream bases for powder eyeshadow and for inner corner highlighting.

Have you tried any of the shades yet?

I am on a bit of shopping go slow since I have two holidays lined up for this year. But the summer is nearly at an end already, can you believe it? So I had to make a pitt stop into Penneys, I wouldn’t be Irish if I didn’t would I really? And I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t grab a little bit of makeup while I was having a nosey.

I also grabbed two things from the Catrice stand, I think I was very restrained, things could have gone alot worse for my bank balance πŸ™‚

First up is their new (I think) Deluxe Trio Eyeshadow in 030 Rose Vintouch.

I got one of their illuminating blushes in 030 ‘Kiss Me Ken’ too. I was eyeing up these blushes online the other day.

This one is pink but with a darker pink gradient on the top and bottom which I thought looked interesting. It has a gold sparkle running through it too.
