Liquid Sugar from Eye Kandy Cosmetics

Liquid Sugar is a water based sealer that is meant to be used for glitter or micas on the eyelids, lips and face. It is safe for sensitive skin and contact wearers (big pluses for me!) and is from Eye Kandy Cosmetics.

It is odorless, looks and feels like water and dispenses into droplets to prevent spillage. At 17$ for 1 oz, it is affordable and works really well with applying products wet. I don't particularly like using it with glitter, but absolutely love its staying power with loose eyeshadows. You don't need to use a lot when you apply, so it will last a while too.

Sugarpill's Absinthe, Birthday Girl, Magpie

Since it's hard to swatch something that just looks like water, I decided to use some Sugarpill eyeshadows. In terms of pigmentation, Sugarpill totally rocks even with dry swatches, but with Liquid Sugar, they become so much brighter. Applying wet is smooth and the Liquid Sugar dries pretty quickly. I did find that Absinthe applied with Liquid Sugar stained my skin after removal.

The above two swatch photos are not the best, but they show you how Magpie can look under different lighting. It is one of my favorite colors ever--perfectly named after a favorite bird of mine too. ❤
