Too Faced Crystal Whips
[unpaid/ad/sample/affiliate] I really hadn’t expected the Too Faced Crystal Whips to be as good as they actually are. Past experience tells me that this type of shimmer veil for the lids don’t stay around for long.
That certainly wasn’t the case here when I gave a couple a test run, although I had to pick my time carefully – not many occasions call for a glitter eye so I had a different one on each eye on Sunday.
I don’t think it’s a great idea to apply with the doe’s foot – you get a much better accuracy by just using a brush to swipe from the foot and take it over to the eye. The shimmery mix acts as veil which I love on bare lids but you can intensify by adding extra layers or use over a darker shadow to bring it up to a glittery mix. The feel is cool on the lids and still felt slightly wet long after they’d dried but it’s not intrusive.
The shades are all gold based in various tones and the level of shimmer isn’t really showing here but expect major lid twinkles! From bottom to top: Turn Up, Club Kid, It’s Lit, Totally Whipped and Pop The Bubbly. At the amount you need to use for a veil, the amount feels almost everlasting – I like the versatility of them for full on blazing eyes or a sheer wash. They’re £19 each HERE, non affiliate HERE.
