Like many black liquid eyeliners, it does have a tendency to photograph brown in swatches, though it does look like a medium black in real life. It’s not an ultra deep black, but it’s not a soft black either; it’s a happy medium of the two. It applies smoothly, gliding on with ease, and the color is distributed evenly without dragging. There’s no patchiness in the color, so you won’t have to go back over the same area twice. When swatched on my arm, it did bleed around the edges, but I did not notice any bleeding until I was cropping the swatch photograph. I didn’t spot any bleeding eyeliner when I tested it on my eyelid, but it does make me want to note that it might do so if you have more wrinkly eyelids.
We continue exploring Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range by taking a look at five of the brown shades. Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen. I had a good experience with these five eyeshadows–they were easy to work with, nicely pigmented, and had the soft, smooth textures I’ve come to expect from Inglot’s Pearl eyeshadows. I really appreciate the consistency of Inglot’s eyeshadows, though, because even if you’re unsure of a color, at least you can anticipate the quality still being high and familiar.
It was opaque in two coats, and it had a natural sheen to it, though I think the majority will still prefer a shiny top coat on top. Butter London’s formula on this one has a really even flow, smooth application, and drying time wasn’t long at all. I typically get a week of wear with Butter London’s formula with a proper base and top coat.
Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range is certainly expansive! They don’t quite fit into two 20-pan palettes neatly (there are two that overflowed into a third, plus one I know I’m missing). There are also a fair amount that seem to only be available in individual pots, rather than refills (which I do not have).
Betty Lou-Manizer is a dirty bronze with a warm, golden shimmer-sheen. The shimmer is incredibly fine, while the sheen is glowy and reflective. If you’ve tried out theBalm’s other powder products, you’ll find the texture is consistent–silky smooth with rich color payoff. It has such a fine texture that it applies well to skin, because it practically melts onto the skin and looks natural and never powdery.
To finish out the palette, we have five blue shades from Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range. Remember, the palette is completely customizable from the shades you fill it with to the size itself.
