I’m guessing you probably won’t have seen anything quite like the Pur Eye Polish with its bouncy mesh and silicone spatula style applicator.
Let’s address the silicone applicator first. In a nutshell, you will probably have more success applying your eye shadow with a butter knife. I have no idea how this passed any kind of application test – just didn’t get it at all, and I tried to the point that I made my eyelids sore from taking the shadow off and starting again.
But, if you completely ignore the applicator and use a fibre brush instead, these are little pots of magic! They’re all a wet formula with metallic elements and can be used in a light version as a primer or more fully as a shadow. The main advantage of this formula is that, unlike some wet metallics, it doesn’t shrink on the lid to leave them looking mock-croc. Mine stayed smooth as silk with no falling into creases and the pigment is amazing.

The first shade is Cashmere, then Silk, Caviar, Suede and Velvet. I used a brush for these swatches. I found that Cashmere makes a beautiful base shade and you need only the tiniest bit because it’s generous in colour with some light catchy shimmer and the more you blend the more it buffs up into a burnished, smooth finish. Because the pigment is high, be cautious at first with all of the colours – a little bit goes a very long way. If I ignore the spatula, these are rather exciting formulas – especially if you have creasing on your lids and want a high sheen look on your lids.
The mesh thing is interesting although I don’t know how it will act when you come to the bottom of the pot in getting every last drop out. I think this is one for the beauty curious. They’re £17 each HERE.
