Finally, here we are talking about those Violette_FR liquid eyeshadows, with a mini-review and swatches.
I have been just following Violette_FR on Instagram for a while. Mainly because I liked her style and loved the aesthetics of the pictures and videos. It took me probably one year from the first launch to decide to finally order something. The Yeux paint were the ones that convinced me to check out a cart that got filled and emptied too many times.
The colours I choose
Lovely colours for brown skins. Those are my favourites:
- Caramel Chaud
- Ciel de Nuit
- Tout Doux
The Violette_FR website has nice pictures and I find that the colours in the pictures are reliable. Ciel de Nuit is so unbelievably beautiful. The most pigmented liquid eye shadow I ever used. I really struggled to find a swatch on someone with the same skin tone as mine. Regardless, I decided to buy it and I’m so glad I did. Currently, I’m a bit obsessed with blu eyeliners/eyeshadows. I also bought the Victoria Beckham blue eyeliner (Navy noir) and I also love it, less pigmented though. Let me know if you want a review/swatches of it.
Those matte liquid eyeshadow, dries almost instantly, you’ll have enough time to blend it or fix things before it sets. It’s quite simple to use and very very easy to blend. especially for someone like me, not really an expert on eyeshadow blending, so I just did it with my fingers. The only slightly annoying thing is: careful not to apply any product to the eyelashes. I, by mistake, ended up with some product on the eyelashes. That result was cemented eyelashes for the rest of the day. But that happened only the first time. I have luckily improved the application. The staying power is fabulous. No creases, no fall out. Those liquid eyeshadows won’t go anywhere and won’t move for the whole day!
I thought that Caramel Chaud, would be my favourite but I end up falling in love with Ciel de Nuit and using very often Tout Doux.
In general, the first thing I noticed when using the liquid eye shadows for the first time was the smell. A sort of chemical smell. But now I already cannot smell it anymore. Magic.If you love heavy packaging, then you’ll be disappointed because is quite light.
All in all, I’m very, very happy with the purchase, one of the most surprising ones I did this year. I’m impressed by how often I reach to use them because it’s so easy to use the Yeux Paint. I gave it 4,5 stars just because of the smell and the plasticky packaging. But I could dare to say, those are the best liquid eyeshadow I tried. And I like the colour range options. Very interesting for olive/medium skin tones. I love that I’m having fun with these eye shadows so… well done Violette
