A20 Liquid Eyeshadow: Review

I’ve been playing around with the A20 Liquid Eyeshadows for well over a month now. I picked up the two shades Wave and Thermo for a dollar a piece at Shop Miss A. Shop Miss A is a super affordable website where everything is $1.00! They have a more “professional” line called A20 where the items are a little more than a dollar but still very affordable.

Packaging


The packaging seems very cheap but super sturdy! The tubes feel very lightweight and almost empty. The lettering on the tubes will wipe off with much use, but almost all plastic tubing without a label will.

Pigment


I wasn’t wowed by the pigment of this product. When I think Liquid eyeshadow, I think of a base so shadows are more pigmented. These did not give me that effect. Thermo was super patchy and hard to build. Wave was slightly better, more opaque and easier to build up for the perfect base.

Finish

These shadows never really dry down and will transfer if not set with a similar eyeshadow. I always thought maybe i hadn’t warn the shadows long enough for them to dry down, but after wearing a swatch of Wave for over 8 hours it was clear they weren’t made to be worn alone.

Overall Thoughts? Will I Repurchase?

I don’t believe these shadows are something I’d be purchasing again. I love liquid shadows for a base for my least pigmented shimmers, but these wouldn’t do any better than them. For the price this is a “You get what you pay for” type of product. I’m not a fan of the way the shadows don’t dry down either. I’d give this product a 2/5 rating.

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Coconut Water Cooling Primer Stick Review 

This past weekend I was at a Walmart I typically don’t go to and found so many cool makeup goodies! Hard Candy is for sure one of my favorite drugstore brands, and when I saw this primer stick I just had to try it!


The claims are that it minimizes pores, soothes redness, and hydrates the skin. The packaging for sure gets a 10/10. The pretty blue to white to blue ombré definitely sucks you right in! A con is definitely the scent. It distinctly reminds me of a glue stick. Luckily once on skin you no longer smell it. I love how it feels on skin it is cooling but not a tingling sensation like some “cooling” products. 


This is very hydrating but light weight as well. For performance I give it a 8/10 just because I didn’t see how it minimizes pores, I especially like the Maybelline Baby Skin primer for that aspect. But the Hard Candy primer was definitely an amazing base for my makeup!

Overall I give this product 9/10, the pros certainly outweigh the cons!
