According to the directions on the box, you're supposed to place one drop of the eye primer onto the tray, then add a dab of the shadow and mix. Please do not be fooled by these directions, as they are bullshit. If you put an entire drop of the primer in this mixture, you're really not going to like the results. A miniscule dab'll do ya, trust me. I find this process to be a huge mess, if I'm being honest, but of course there's a brush for that (if you feel like paying an extra $18 for it).
I was not prepared for the texture of it, and at first tried to dip the stiff bristled Tarte eyeshadow brush I use for cream shadows into the pot (see above). It is, for lack of a better term, squinchy. Don't use a brush with this, because it's not made for that. Use your fingers or, if you are lucky enough to have $18 laying around for a brush you can only use with ONE product, go for it.
I got 'metallic golden pink' specifically to wear with the Naked3 palette. I skip the liquid primer altogether and just use my ring fingertip to lightly pat on the shadow over my already finished eye makeup. (UD Primer Potion + UD Naked3)
|It's quite hard to accurately capture the texture and liquid metal look of this shadow!|
This is pretty much the only product of its kind on the market. Sure, you have your metallic glitters (Lit Cosmetics and OCC come to mind), or you can attempt to apply your metallic shadows wet, but this stuff literally looks like liquid metal when it's applied correctly. It's unique in every way possible. If you want to look like a cyborg- and be real, who doesn't- but don't want glitter in your eye, this is the eyeshadow for you!
At $32 for a .07 oz pot of eyeshadow and a pathetically half-full bottle of eye primer, this stuff better at least make you a sandwich afterward, right?! Well, I regret to inform you that it does not. The fallout is terrible. SO, so messy. Be ready for a lot of cleanup. Don't take it over your crease because it will look horrific- keep it on your mobile lid only. I would 100% not recommend this to a makeup newbie, because the margin of error is very high. I had to practice quite a bit to get my technique down just right. The price is also pretty prohibitive- $457 an ounce to be exact, but I was able to get it for 20% off (a little over $25) which was just slightly less traumatic in my eyes. The primer comes half empty, which is completely nonsensical. You can buy a full size bottle for about $20.
