Payload

Lethal Cosmetics Payload Glitch Liquid Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.24 oz.) seemed to have a blackened base with fine pearl and sparkle that had a multichromatic shift between bluish-purple to violet to peach to teal. It had more semi-opaque color coverage–so it was more pigmented than most shades in the range–but it was hard to maintain that coverage and prevent it from looking patchy, streaky, and sometimes lifted (this occurred very readily when using fingertips to diffuse).

The consistency was very watery and thin with a longer dry down time, which didn’t make it any easier to apply. I felt the best way to apply was putting product in the back of my hand, then picking up with a separate brush, and I had one stroke to apply it–trying to do more always resulted in the product moving around and looking streaky. It started to fade visibly after six hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.24 oz. - $87.50 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "water-based" and having "exceptional wear time and zero fallout" and can be applied in a "single swipe" on the lid. The brand recommended to allow the formula to dry down before opening eyes "all the way" to avoid creasing. It's an incredibly wet and watery formula, which made it hard to use and have sheerer coverage.

The majority of shades were more like multichromatic top coats rather than full-on eyeshadows--less "one swipe." They were a challenge to apply evenly, as the watery formula was prone to visibly streaking whether I used the included-applicator (the worst tool), fingertips (only decent if semi-dried down already but always sheered out the product considerably), and brushes (both fluffy and flat synthetic options).

I had the best results using a flat brush to apply and a clean, fluffy brush to diffuse the edges a bit after giving it a few seconds to dry down. It was usually easier to take the included-applicator, swipe product onto the back of my hand, then pick up product with a brush--this made it so my skin absorbed some of the wateriness and prevented some of the streaking when applied to my lid.

Despite being a rather watery formula, the dry down time was actually too long--getting product into my fine lines as it was drying down was very minimal of an issue. The uneven, sometimes patchy and other times streaky, applicator was really the pressing problem. The more pigmented shades applied more smoothly, while the sheerer shades seemed to ball up in places, which resulted in a chunkier finish that could emphasize lid texture.

It's a shame they were so difficult to apply, because the finish was really stunning; fine, glimmering particles that reflected the light and danced without being chunky or glittery. They were comfortable to wear and were transfer-resistant, as promised, and lasted four to six hours on me before fading.

Zero Day

Lethal Cosmetics Zero Day Glitch Liquid Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.24 oz.) seemed to have a transparent base with small and mid-sized shimmer and sparkle that had a multichromatic shift between lavender to peach to gold. The shift wasn’t that noticeable, no matter how I contorted myself, and it was primarily a translucent pink with flecks of iridescent sparkle (that’s how it read, at least).

It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which applied unevenly regardless of whether I applied it using the included applicator, a separate brush, or my fingertip. I had the “best” results by applying the product to the back of my hand, then picking up with a separate brush and applying it to my lid. I felt like I had one shot to brush it on and then had to live with those results as trying to diffuse or blend it out resulted in patchiness and streakiness. The formula was very watery and thin, which was part of the problem. There were signs of fading after five hours of wear.

Ouch!
I do like the swatches of Payload, a beautiful shift and the purple in it is gorgeous. Had I just seen this swatched I might have been very frustrated when trying it.
And that is why this site is the best! Money and peace of mind saved!
