I don’t even know where do start on how absolutely fabulous the Jane Iredale Eyegloss are! They are one of my cannot live without products. The Jane Iredale Eyegloss is a liquid eye shadow that offers a creaseless, sheer, shimmery wash of color. It is a beautiful shadow for those who like a natural look and it is also an incredible shadow base!

I used the Jane Iredale Eyegloss as a light eye wash on its own and as an eyeshadow base. What really stood out for me was the remarkable wearing power of the product on its own, and how it made shadows last for hours that would usually have been off in a jiffy!

I started using them when I went to the south of Turkey in August, the hottest time of the year, 40 degrees celcius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) and soooo humid. I had 3 huge events which lasted from about 10 am- 1 am the next day. They were all outside in the sun, heat and wind- which led to the rest of my makeup slowly melting away as the hours went. The Jane Iredale Eye Gloss saved the life and beauty of my eye shadow, every time! They come in a convenient sponge tip applicator, which actually blend the color very well, they are also in a tube so you can get out every last bit!

I tried 3 beautiful silk shimmer Eye Gloss, but they come in 7 other colors!

  • Champagne Silk – A beautiful light champagne/cream color that acts as a perfect neutral base for light-medium skin tones. Champagne silk was my favorite eye gloss, simply because of the color. It worked so beautifully to offer my eyes that beachy, wet look and works with any shadow over top because it is a totally neutral color.
  • Peach Silk– A sheer peach/pink color that gives a soft illuminating effect to the lid. Also a great neutral for light-medium skin tones. I used Peach silk under some of my cooler shades of shadow and loved the way it brightening anything that went on top!
  • Grey Silk– A Gorgeous cool slate grey color that adds depth and dimension to the lid. Perfect as a soft wash of pigment on the lid or as a base for your darker shadows. I used Grey Silk with dark colors, and loved the way it held my smoky eye in place!!!

I will never go without the Jane Iredale Eyegloss! It is the ultimate base for long wearing your eye color, and a beautiful, sheer, beachy wash for an everyday easy look!

I have not done many makeup reviews thus far, mainly because I have been loaded with so many amazing skincare products, and I am a skincare junkie; but I just had to write about this one!  I was introduced to Silk Naturals through my fellow Green Beauty Bloggers, and whilst calmly browsing through the site I found my self drawn to purchasing a large slew of shadows! I am really happy I did because these shadows are so unbelievably beautiful! They are so affordable and gorgeous that it makes it easy to make the switch to Natural! The Loose Mineral Shadows retail for $4.50 and come in 5 gram jar of goodness.

Another thing to mention is that the customer service was personal, speedy and wonderful; that makes such a great difference to me! They also give a little gift with every order!
I ordered mostly neutral tones since I seldom go bold with my eye makeup, and I seriously love them all! You can use them wet or dry; wet for bold color and dry for a more subtle wash. Keep in mind that the below pictures were the shadows dry, look at the amazing bold color! The pictures below give the shadows no justice! They are so gorgeous and I could not seem to capture their beauty in a picture!

If you love the colors but are not one for loose shadow because you consider it messy? Remember to poke only 2-3 of the holes so you can control the amount that comes out more effectively! I recommend using them with an eyeshadow primer to increase pigment, lasting power and prevent creasing. I truly recommend trying these gorgeous shadows. With so many choices, from matte to shine finish and bold and neutral colors, you will for sure find some that you love! These are a staple in my daily makeup, and I am going to keep ordering more and more! I simply love them!!!
