When Fenty’s Summer 18 Collection dropped, I must admit, I wasn’t that excited about it; it looked a little too funtastic for my everyday lifestyle. Curiosity got the best of me when I went into Sephora to see if I could swatch some items and made out with the 2-in-1 Liquid Eye Shimmer in Summer Fling/Reignbow. These are limited edition so I’m not sure if these will be restocked 🙁
My skin type
What it’s supposed to do
From the brand: Double-dip into summer’s ultimate treasure where there’s more than meets the eye. Island Bling 2-in-1 Liquid Eye Shimmer brings together two different finishes in one convenient dual-ended design, delivering sleek, metallic shimmer on one side and an iridescent glitter topcoat on the other. Wear ’em solo or layer together to create a brand new, hyper-prismatic shade.
How I use it
I tried the two shades of the shadow on their own as well as layered on top of each other. For maximum blendability, I pat the color on my lid straight from the applicator and spread and blend with a brush. These are different from cream shadows in that they are thinner and more liquid than cream, harder to blend, and can be worn from sheer to opaque. They dry down in what seems like less than a minute depending of the level of sheerness.
What I like about it
The brand claims that the shadows were made with all skin tones in mind and I can totally see this looking really good on literally everybody. I really like that these can be worn pretty sheer. After I swatched these, I was a bit nervous about wearing these to work because they seemed so intense, but to my surprise, I was able to wear both shades and it was very classy looking! I love that the combination also works and the product is neutral enough for any occasion.
What could be better
Definitely need a primer with this one. Both shades crease pretty badly on me by mid afternoon (lasting about six hours). I’m also a bit bothered that these are limited edition. I feel like Fenty is a relatively new brand and think it’s a bit early to be dropping limited edition stuff. I mean, these are summer items and one of the shades is completely sold out everywhere (Summer Fling/Reignbow is still available on Fenty’s website). Hopefully these will be restocked at least once.
