Moonstoned (76)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Moonstoned (76) See-quins Glam Glitter Liquid Eyeshadow ($26.00 for 0.19 oz.) seemed to have a more translucent base with flecks of silver and white sparkle that shifted pink. This worked best as a layering product on top of anything else to add sparkle and shimmer as it had semi-sheer coverage that didn’t build up well. The texture felt more watery compared to other shades, but most of the shimmer/sparkle dispersed evenly when applied to bare skin. It dried down and lasted for 12 hours without fading, creasing, or flaking on me.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.19 oz. - $136.84 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be long-wearing with "all-day, crease- and fallout-resistant sparkle" that you "swipe on and blend" for "instant, fuss-free dazzle." They're supposed to have "customiz[able]" coverage that can be sheered out or built up for "high-impact dazzle." Some shades had more medium coverage while a few had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, and most of them were easy enough to sheer out for more of a wash of color.

The doe-foot applicator was comfortable to use but tended to over-apply the product, so I'd recommend using a separate tool to pick up product off the doe-foot applicator and then using that separate tool to apply the product to the eye area. The texture was more of a whipped mousse--airy but wet--that was quick to dry down to a long-wearing, crease- and transfer-resistant formula that didn't suffer from fallout. I think if you were someone who accidentally rubbed your eye, it's possible that a couple of sparkles or a small chunk of the product could flake off, but I didn't experience flaking just wearing it over a 12-hour period.

As most of the shades had larger flecks of sparkle, they did not always build up in a flattering way; the finish can look somewhat chunky, almost raised or more textured on the lid, when built up (I would not go more than two layers), though in person I find that it's harder to "see" that added texture.

Gleam Girl (82)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Gleam Girl (82) See-quins Glam Glitter Liquid Eyeshadow ($26.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a soft copper with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage with a second layer (without thickening or becoming uneven), and it could also be sheered out to a sparkling wash of warmth. The consistency was lightweight, more mousse-like, but it felt cool and wet as it went on initially. It dried down quickly and set for a transfer-resistant, crease-resistant 12-hour wear time.

Topaz Flash (90)

Marc Jacobs Beauty Topaz Flash (90) See-quins Glam Glitter Liquid Eyeshadow ($26.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium-dark, golden taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage or sheered out if desired, though it was a deeper shade so it would work best as a wash on someone with a darker lid color. The consistency was lightweight, spread well, and blended out along the edges, and it had a watery, mousse-like texture that was wet to the touch but had some body to it (though very airy). It stayed on well for 12 hours without budging.

Hi Christine–maybe at some point it would be helpful to get your take comparing the new Chanel Spring 2020 liquid eyeshadows to these? It seems like both are releasing about this same time.

Out of the three, I was secretly hoping that Moonstoned would work better in actual practice. Unfortunately, it fell quite short, though.
Topaz Flash is a beauty, however!

I really like the heavier application swatch of Topaz Flash but I’m not sure if I’d enjoy using it. Might give it a try “in store” to see how I like it. I do have the dupe from Dior’s Celebrate in Gold palette though it doesn’t seem all that close but it might be close enough to keep me happy.
