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 Beautiful, though not for all.
Starting with packaging, it's standard, not bad but not exciting/inviting. As always, if safely available, test on your skin for true color. The application brush isn't the greatest and it was rather gloppy, requiring a lot of product manipulation between brush and tube (which you really don't want to do).
This product seems at same level as so many liquid eyeshadows, so if you enjoy liquids, and your skin is young, I think you may really enjoy the results. I've provided a picture below of three colors. 440-Amber Sparkle, 430-Blush Jewel, 425 (not 426 as listed in the picture) Amathyst Quartz.
Top row: no primer. It's a little challenging to get a smooth application with the brush paddle being large; however, it shouldn't take long to get used to how to use it for your lid space. First pass, a beautiful light application, second pass color really shows.
Bottom row: used Too Faced 24hr shadow insurance to prime. The bottom row is clearly the better application due to smoother application surface and can see how nicely they might pair with my skin tone.
I want aware of this product previously; however, having tested a few colors, I'm interested in seeing more. I think I could see myself sporting Amethyst Quartz. I would suggest this product mostly for those with healthy skin and for the slightly more adventurous. I would recommend this to some of my friends but not all.

I "paint" it on my eyelids after applying primer. It lasts all day!

I bought the Amethyst shade and it looks so beautiful on my fair skin. It's got a wonderful shimmer to it but it's not glittery. I put this on my lids and then blend it a little with a brush. It's super quick and easy. Great for my sensitive eyes that dry out with powder shadow! I will probably be buying the amber shade soon!
affordable liquid eyeshadow
chloe from indiana
This product is very pigmented. They go on very smoothly and looks great as a top layer. I received three of these as a product testing company and have worn all of them multiple times. The only thing that I don't like is the formula. It goes on super smooth but over time I have noticed cracks in it.
Janin from Salem or
The applicator makes it super easy to use, the shades are very pigmented and shimmery. The shades are very soft and easy to blend. I love doing cut crease lines wuth the applicator it just makes everything easier. You can do so many fun looks or just do a simple cute look. The packaging is very simple and looks great quality.
Not my style
Lau from Jax, FL
I had never tried cream eyeshadow before. The colors are very pretty, but personally, I did not like the application. There is a clear distinction of colors when used. I would recommend to a friend that is used to using this type of product because of the pigmentation and colors that are very nice.
Brilliant eyes shimmer liquid eye shadow
Ashleyw86 from Derby
Application is easy and goes on easy as a light or thick application and has very good shimmer.
decent eye shadow
nu from tx
I liked the ease of application but did not appreciate how you need to apply a very thick layer to get the desired look. also, it becomes more faint with time especially in the heat, so not reliable in that aspect.
Royal Onyx is awful
JC from SC
Royal Onyx is a sheer brown full of gold glitter. It creased horribly without an eye primer but did okay with a primer. You can see in the photo how patchy it gets blended out. I tried to capture how glittery this is, but my camera just can't pick it up well. I thought maybe I missed the glitter information, so I reread the description. These are marketing as shimmers not glitters, and I would not have purchased if I knew it had glitter in it. It does makes a pretty topper shade if you are very careful when blending.
I will purchase this product again

I h w already ordered this in another color.
So glad I kept my receipt!
Mommabear3502 from Missouri
I can't think of anything positive about this product. I was very disappointed. When I applied it to my eyelid, I had to use my finger to try to move it around which just picked up most of the color leaving only glitter behind.
Omg so much glitter. There was very little pigmentation and SOOOOOOO much glitter. Once it dried, the glitter ended up all over my face including my eyebrows. It was not a good product AT ALL.
I bought Rose Gem and Bronze Light and had the same experience with both colors. I'll be returning these ASAP to try a different brand's liquid eyeshadow.
I love this

I just love this eye shadow. It's my first time trying this kind
Really like the Brilliant Eyes Liquid Eye Shadow!

A few swipes with the applicator make my blue eyes pop. This is a subtle color.

Great product! Will be purchasing in multiple colors.
I really like this eyeshadow! It has a subtle sparkle!
twinklingstar from NC
Easy to use and apply. With primer it stays on most of the day.
Kristina from Enterprise, AL
I used the applicator to apply straight to my eyelids, and did not use a primer as I wanted to see how the product held up alone. Nice color and shimmer, but began to crease soon after application. I'm sure with a good primer this product would last all day!
Div123 from CT
This liquid eyeshadow is of great quality! Lasts all day long. Very nice shimmering look and makes my eyes look beautiful. It's not at all greasy and it's very comfortable all day long. Easy to apply. It's pigmented and looks great. I am so happy and glad that this works so well for me. I use this everyday and I love the glittery shine. It's not too gaudy but it's perfect !
victoria from mn
i was super excited to try these as an everyday, one-step shadow. i bought the shades amber sparkle and crystal shine, both really lovely everyday colors. to be honest these are really underwhelming to me, as i was ready for these to be a cheaper alternative to the stila liquid shadows, but they're pretty sheer and you don't get a very pigmented look out of them (if you try to blend out with your finger the color will sort of lift up). if you're looking for a light wash of color/a sheer look these are great, just not my cup of tea as i want something more pigmented and opaque.
Devo from Indiana
I love using this produce with my finger for an opaque finish or with a brush for a layer of shimmer. The colors are beautiful and are great for anything from a night out to everyday wear depending on your style and how you apply
I would buy again
April from Norfolk, NE
Felt very light weight. The color was a little bright for me.
I love it
Britt from VA
I love this! I love anything that shimmers so these were perfect, it goes on pretty cold at first but seemed to dry fast and was easy to blend and the finish look was so simple and light yet just enough color and shimmer to make my eyes pop. I thought it did crease just a bit but not too much, nothing extremely noticeable so overall I think it's a great liquid eyeshadow and lasted all day compared to some powders. I even rubbed my finger across my eye at the end of the day just to test out how well it sticks and not much came off so it stays on really well and I was impressed.
Birdlegs2 from Sweetwater tn
I love how creamy this product is. It feels so nice on your eyelids, without feeling tacky or sticky. The color pops beautifully oh, it doesn't require much blending at all yeah. It drives very quick but doesn't leave your eyes feeling cakey. The applicator works great and I have no issues with it whatsoever. I've received many compliments when I wore this eyeshadow.
I absolutely loved this product!
Jj from Schenectady, Ny
It stayed on so much longer than my regular eyeshadow and it looked 10 times better. It had a little wet feel to it at first but it dried fast. Love wearing this even around the house.
KTBugg from VA
Loved how smooth the product went on! Stayed on all day long and so light I would forget I was wearing eye shadow.
Chaos Coordinator from Arkansas
I recently got to try out L'Oreal brilliant eyes liquid eyeshadow. My fav shade is 430 blush jewel. In my photo I have 440 amber sparkle, 430 blush jewel and 425 amethyst quartz (from top to bottom) for some comparison shades. My favorite way to apply this is with my finger or eyeshadow brush. I had no problem lasting 10+ hours. Works great & looks beautiful.
My New All Time Favorite By Far!

Best part of this eyeshadow is it stays in place.
