Glam It Up for Valentine's Day With These 5 Affordable Eye Fav's!
1. LIT Cosmetics
Liquid Metals Kit
You can snag this fabulous eye kit from Sephora or directly from LIT cosmetics on their site. If you snatch up this awesome fit directly from LIT, you can choose from a huge variety of liquid metal shades to choose from + 3 different types of bases to choose from as well! Each kit not only comes with your chosen shade + base, but it also includes a mini application brush and wand so you can apply this product to your lashes, brows, & lids :0 Each liquid metal color contains a highly pigmented shade that is sparkly and beautiful too!
The base allows for the product to adhere to the skin with ease and prevents it from moving and creasing- so it stays where you put it and provides all-day wear! I really love the metallic/pearl blends that contain silver or gold flakes for each shade option- they stand out beautifully, regardless of skin tone. Plus, these are fabulous V-day gifts and make a great option for your special Valentine's Day look as well. As an added bonus, LIT's liquid metals eye kits are formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates- and they are vegan , cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, in addition to being alcohol, proprylene glycol, and glute-free! That means that this product can be used by those with sensitive skin and contact wearers for example :)
As for the color- I 've really not come across a product that gives the brilliant color, sparkle, and depth that this product does and it actually lasts and doesn't move! The product is super easy to apply- simply dip your brush into the base and then the product, which has an opening atop the lid so that you can dip your brush right in! Then, you simply apply the product and depending on how much you apply and layer, you can get a variety of unique, stand-out looks. These also work well with other shadows so you can combine these with a darker, matte shadow shade and get some really neat looks as a result :)
Glitter On The Go Liquid Eye Shadow Set
Always on-the-go and want to skip out on the mess? Try this pretty liquid eye shadow set from Stila! This trio of Stila's best-selling sparkling liquid eye shadow shades contains some of the prettiest liquid type shadows I've come across. The sparkle is long-lasting and works well alone or layered with ea. other or other shadows already in your collection to give you tons of unique and beautiful looks- perfect for Valentine's Day. This one makes a great gift too and won't break the bank at around $25!
Eye Wardrobe Clutch Set
You get it all with this kit from Givenchy! Contains a Noir Couture Volume Mascara in Black Taffeta, a Magic Khol Eye Liner Pencil in Black, and 6 Le Prisme Yeux shadows! The shadows are the stars of this kit as they are composed of pearlescent shades that can be used alone or combined for a more dramatic look- perfect for Valentine's Day! This is also a great kit to snag and take with for date nights and on-the-go touch-ups :) You can even remove the makeup try inside the clutch and then it becomes a cute place to store beauty essentials too!
4. Butter London
Glazen Eye Gloss in Oil Slick
The picture does not even do this multi-dimensional beautiful hue true justice, but it's an absolutely gorgeous shade that's lightweight, long-wearing, crease-resistant, buildable [from sheet shimmer to intense metallic], and is created with a unique pearl suspension. This unique technology give the product a "wet look" when applied to the lids! The pudding-like texture goes on like a gel and dries like a powder for all-day lasting wear that really does stand out from many eye shadow products out on the market. It doesn't take much of this awesome product either so the container it arrives in is sure to last you a long time. As for the sparkle of this unique hue featured above- Oil Slick? It's one of the prettiest shades in the collection in my opinion but there are 6 other beautiful colors to choose from if this one isn't to your liking. I'd highly recommend the one pictured above for Valentine's Day- it'a a pretty universally flattering shade that will not only look good on almost any age or skin tone, but almost any outfit as well :)
Chrome Paint Shadow Pot in Fire Dancer
*ulta.com pricing + snag a free gift w/purchase for a limited time @ ULTA!
I've always been a big fan of Tarte's products and they've done it once again with their chrome paint shadow collection! This collection features an array of spectacular shades with mirrored metallic effects. Each effect has a high sheen of a cream or a gloss, but gives the easy wear and application results of a powder- each hue containing an 80%+ pure pearl pigmentation! Can be applied directly with your fingers, no brushes needed and due to the warmth from your fingers, the formula easily melts into the skin- so no need for primer either! You can layer these as well and place a shade atop on one of your favorite shadows for a Valentine's day look that's unique, beautiful, and will last all day! Fire Dancer [featured above] is a bright, coppery shade that's perfect for Valentine's Day :)
