Most Helpful Positive Review I adore this liquid eye shadow!
I received three shades of this liquid eye shadows to review, but my opinion is absolutely honest.
I haven't tried liquid eye shadows in YEARS. I always found them too fussy and they moved around a lot resulting in a messy eye look or me looking like I have been rubbing my eyes and crying. I could never make liquid eye shadows work for me.
But when I got the chance to try Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadows I fell in love with the shimmery glitter shades. They looked so pretty. At first I wishes they weren't liquid (more like a gel really) form, but I'm always open to try new make up. Well, me and my assumptions stand corrected.
I found myself adoring the wand applicator and the gel formula. It glides on my eyelids and allows me to create very beautiful eye looks in a few minutes. Since a lot of the colors are very wearable for daily make up looks, I do a quick eye wing, put 430 (Blush Jewel) or 425 (Amethyst Quartz) on my eyelid, blend it out quickly (it dries pretty fast which I consider a big pro because it stops it from moving around and looking messy) and good to go to work.
Since they are shimmery, they also work perfectly for more elaborated glamorous looks. I specially love 440 (Amber Sparkle) for the inner corner of my eyes or to add some gold to my eye liner when I do a more elaborated eye looks for events, dinners, or dates with the hubs. It makes my eyes stand out and I have got many compliments and questions about the products I used.
The formula is very pleasant, product doesn't look cakey or dry, the creamy gel formula glides on the skin, it dries fast, barely moves even after hours, .... I couldn't ask for more. I seriously fell in love with this and plan to purchase more shades.
It was the perfect addition to this morning lazy girl! I love all make up, but this is a life saver in the morning when I'm running late but want to look good. And the wand makes touch ups extremely easy.
Most Helpful Critical Review No pigment, doesn't last, stays wet
I had never heard of the Loreal Brilliant Eyes shimmer liquid eye shadow before trying, so I was pretty excited to put it to the test. Unfortunately, I just didn't live up to any of its claims.
I first tried using by itself on my lid- and you could barely tell it was there. I then tried using an eye primer to see if it would show up any better. It did show up a little brighter, but still not as noticeable as I wanted. It's just lacking pigment.
I decided to try to use it as a highlight on my lid over my regular, dark brown powder eye shadow. It showed up a little better, but I did have to tap it in with my fingertips to blend it. It looked very pretty as a lid highlight! Unfortunately, it just didn't last very long. In less than 4 hours, I couldn't even tell it was even on my lid anymore. It didn't last even a fraction of the 16-hour wear they claim.
The eye shadow also stayed kind of wet and greasy feeling the entire time. It was extremely easy to smudge and move around, definitely not transfer-proof. I definitely can't have that, especially during hot summer months.
All in all, I just honestly didn't care for this at all. While it looked pretty, it failed on everything that Loreal claims that it does. It simply just does not have the pigment, or the staying power to be something I would add into my regular rotation. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this.

I got this shadow in shade "rose gem" and I'll be honest...I've no issues with it at all. I use eyeshadow primer, set that with powder, do my normal shadow routine, and typically use this as a pop of color across the lid. It's got this beautiful sheen without being too glittery. The color is this great rose-gold/pink shade with the typical metallic finish of a good shimmer shadow. I've used it as a simple inner corner shade, have built it up into a full-glam lid shade, and have even layered it with other shadows in my collection with good results and staying power each time. Since I've had such good luck with this shade, I'm excited to purchase a few more to test the consistency across the board.

I have never used a liquid shadow before and wasn't really interested in trying it either. I tried it anyway and it wasn't bad. Wasn't too sticky and it lasted over 8 hours which was cool. It felt light on the eyes.

This is like the only eyeshadow I use now just because I like natural and simple makeup! So I definitely recommend if you are a girl like me and need a little sparkle to your everyday basic routine!

Before having this one sent to me from Influenster I already purchased five other ones on my own so I was really excited that I was getting this and I didn't have this color I love them they last long they're easy to put on there gorgeous￼￼
Great liquid shimmer
livp10 from undisclosed
This is a lovely little shimmer eyeshadow to make a look pop. It's got pretty good coverage for what it is, because I find that a lot of these cremes sheer out to the extreme (looking at you glossier lidstar). Just make sure to blend the edges quick because once it dries down, it's there to stay a while! My only issue is that sometimes if you don't layer in thin layers it can get chunky/streaky. This is easily avoided though. My favorite way to use this is in the inner corners to add a little sparkle and brightness to an otherwise neutral eye look. Subtle and fun!!

I really like the color of the liquid eyeshadow but my only problem is that I had a hard time trying to incorporate this into my eye looks. That was a personal problem though. It's very shiny and dries down pretty fast but you can still blend it out.

ahhhh I'm in LOOOOOVE!!! this has become one of my new favorite drugstore products. it's super easy to apply when you need a fast look and it's gorgeous!! Super shimmery which I love! It's also really affordable and doesn't crease on me. Will definitely be purchasing more of these!

This liquid shadow is pretty. Although, it's nothing special that I would go out of my way to get. The applicator is similar to the Stila ones where it's rounded at the end for a nice crease application. The Blush Jewel shade is a light pink color with golden glitters. It goes on opaque but you can blend it out to where it's mostly just the glitters and a little bit of color. I will say to be extra careful if you don't want to sheer it out completely, then you will leave finger marks since it will pick up most of the product you've put down. Other than that, I think it's pretty nice and definitely a cheaper alternative to the Stila glitters and shadows.

The color and shine in this product is incredible! I love everything about it. The only con is that it is not smudge proof, but that does not bother me as I won't touch my eyes a ton with makeup on.
asjasparkles from undisclosed
I'm absolutely obsessed with this product!! I wear it all the time. I love the fact that it is a more liquid/cream based eye shadow because then, depending on how much you apply, the color and sparkle can be as subtle or dramatic as you want. It's a great product that comes in really nice colors. I've gotten so many compliments on this.
alifav from undisclosed
I love this color but this product makes me whole face glittery as the glitter gets everywhere from even a small smudge. Otherwise it works very well and blends effortlessly!
not a fan

This product is lackluster, upon applying it the formula is more of a mouse consistency, though the shimmer was not quite what I was expecting. It is pigmented but it's not bright or "wet". The formula did crumble on my eyes. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼

I just started getting into liquid eyeshadows. And this one's really nice it's not too thick or thin it goes on very smooth and it's very easy to blend out with either your finger or a brush. You can use it for a cut crease on your lid or I like to use it as a base and then I add some darker colors over it because it is a lighter color but you could definitely dress up or dress it down. It's very easy to use and it's very spreadable and it also dries very quickly. ￼I think it's a really pretty color that looks good on fair skin but would also look good on darker skin. I personally have very light skin but it's not too light nor is it too dark. It's also very shimmery which is always fun.￼￼￼￼￼
loved the color!
meghan_732 from undisclosed
I really loved the color of this liquid eyeshadow! I'm always looking for more and this made a great addition. The one this I wasn't 100% satisfied with is that when you go to spread it on your eye, it can break up a little and it's not as vibrant but over all very satisfied.

I am not a big fan of liquid eyeshadow, however this liquid eyeshadow wasn't the worst eyeshadow product I've used. A little goes a long way with this product so you have to be very cautious upon application (if you're doing a professional eyeshadow look)￼, but the color is beautiful nonetheless.￼
nalac from undisclosed
I love the color and shimmer. The liquid shadow was actually really chunky and hard to apply when I tried to make the color more bold. I reapplied it thinner and it works as a light shimmer. I do recommend applying a color to the lid first because the color isn't very vibrant.
enkhbolort from undisclosed
I love that the sparkle spread instead of it being thick and clumpy. It's a very sparkly and classy look.
Too glittery for me
Jillanne322 from Greenville NY
If you try to blend this at all the color disappears and you are left with glitter. I thought it would be shimmery
allisonf29f3 from undisclosed
This is such a cute look for the nice soft girl look and it's easy to use and is great for a every day look or going out
abbey_moutoux from undisclosed
This is an amazing product! The color is stunning and it pasted my whole day without creasing. The applicator is the perfect size!
maryg5820 from undisclosed
This is a really great liquid eye shadow. Adds so much pigment and sparkle to your eye look. It can make a mess if you aren't careful, but overall, I like this product!
didn't dry properly to use again!
katbuggle from undisclosed
The application was fine but when this product dried it wasn't smooth, had cracks in it and looked crumbly. I don't think I would use this product again because they need to work on the formula to look smooth when dried!
vanessac7cce from undisclosed
i love the color of this liquid shadow but the more blending you do, the less the color really pops. it turns into just straight glitter, which is pretty but not exactly what i was looking for in this product.
jumanat1 from undisclosed
I can see why this would be a fan fav. I am however not into liquid eyeshadows much the formula was immaculate though. It's very long lasting and a little goes a long way.
I personally wouldn't buy again. But I can see how some would fall in love with it

This eye shadow is very shiny and bright. Very easy to use and the color is beautiful.
