Lights Off

Moira Lights Off Superhyped Liquid Pigment ($7.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish.

  • Nearly opaque coverage in one layer
  • Lightweight, fluid, spreadable
  • Applied evenly to eyes around edges but hard to sheer out/diffuse evenly, uncomfortable on lips
  • Long-wearing overall (9 hours on eyes/cheeks, 5.5 hours on lips but drying)

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.16 oz. - $43.75 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to work on "body, face, cheek, eye, and lips" with "bold and vibrant color" that is long-wearing and goes on evenly and flawlessly. If you're looking to use this formula on the eyes as eyeliner or eyeshadow, you'll probably be quite happy with the end results and longevity. If you're hoping to use these on the lips, then I think they're a lot less impressive as they tended to look unflattering by emphasizing lip texture/imperfections and were clingy to wear.

The texture was smooth, fluid, and thin without being too runny, which made it easy to apply from the tube and then to use a fluffy, synthetic brush to diffuse and blend out. I also was able to use my fingertip in most instances, though I had to take care to work pretty quickly as the formula dried down fast and once set, it did not move well.

The shimmery shades were more medium coverage, sometimes buildable but typically more likely to sheer out in practice and require layering to be more pigmented. They had a lot of fine sparkle that caught the light well, so I could see them working well as an all-over lid color. As cheek product, these could be used more as a highlighter than a genuine blush, but you'll need to work as fast as possible to diffuse the edges and sheer out evenly. As a lip product, it was somewhat uncomfortable to wear, felt clingy, and had a tendency to produce a lot of sparkly migration over the three to four hours it lasted for.

The matte shades had higher coverage, often opaque, that applied well to the eyes and poorly to the lips. Some shades worked better on cheeks than others, but they had to be applied and blended out very, very quickly as the working time about 10 seconds at best. The issue I had with the formula on my lips was they often settled into my lip lines during dry down and/or clung to texture or other imperfections, so it looked rougher, somewhat uneven, and/or "cracked" when I smiled.

The formula dried down fairly quickly and was long-wearing once set. As a lip product, they lasted three to six hours but were drying over time and were often unflattering with respect to finish/texture and shimmery shades had migration over time. As an eye product, they lasted nine hours without creasing or fallout. As a cheek product, they lasted around nine hours before fading a bit.

Sugar Love

Moira Sugar Love Superhyped Liquid Pigment ($7.00 for 0.16 oz.) had a more translucent base with a darker, golden peach shimmer throughout and faint silvery micro-sparkle. It was quite sheer and more watery than other shades in the range.

  • Sheer coverage, somewhat buildable if second layer was applied after first one dried down
  • Lightweight, fluid, spreadable
  • Applied somewhat evenly to eyes and cheeks (if one worked quickly!), uncomfortable on lips
  • Long-wearing overall (9 hours on eyes/cheeks, 3.5 hours on lips but drying)

Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

If the brand had just marketed these as a liquid eyeshadow, I think it would have been more realistic. The formula could have been tailored as such and result in a much more useable product. There are so many eye, cheek and lip products out in the beauty marketplace that brands don’t need to create a ‘one size fits all’ product that fails on all levels.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
