It seems like it’s non-stop launch for Lisa Eldridge which is wonderful – a home-grown brand expanding and succeeding. Despite the fact that I didn’t really get along fully with the new foundation, I’m having a bit of an LE moment I think. I visited the pop up store to try on rings (yes, thank you Mr BBB!) and see Lisa’s amazing collection of vintage beauty but the thing that stood out the most was the impeccable colour matching going on – let no person leave without an exact match!
Liquid Lurex is a liquid metallic eye shadow with a five shade choice. It’s like disco pants for your eyelids and does that very flattering thing of immediately illuminating the eye lid.
It’s a liquid formula so expect it to feel wet initially – if you have very sensitive lids you might struggle a bit. I got a very mild sting the very first time I tested it but then subsequently didn’t so I feel that it’s gentler than most of this type of metallic liquid. The strength of Liquid Lurex is that it can be applied at any intensity – either as a gentle wash of colour or ramped up a bit. I’ve tried it both ways and like both but my main take-away is don’t apply it with the doe’s foot applicator – use a normal eye brush and take a little bit from the applicator to make the amount more controllable.
The shade I have is Anjelica which is described as ‘silver, gold, violet green and gold pearls’. I would say the overall impression is a lit taupe – I don’t see a lot of evidence of violet green in there although the pearlescence is exceptionally illuminating. I watched part of Lisa’s video on how to apply and one of things she did was apply under the lower lash line which looked beautiful. You need very little product for impact so I feel this could last years really – it’s £19 HERE.
I’ve grabbed a still from my Instagram video HERE so you can see how it looks on.
