Sweep the cushiony wand along your eyelid for a bold metallic payoff, or use your fingers to gently blend it out to a diffused wash of color.
For best results, we recommend applying this quick-dry formula to clean skin one eye at a time.
Can I wear Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint over or under my other ILIA eye products?
We believe they are best used on their own, however they can also be worn underneath The Necessary Eyeshadow Palette. Our Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tints make an excellent layering base that emphasizes the color of the powder shadows.
With that said, you will not need an eye primer, as this product dries down quickly and is budge-proof once set. Using our Natural Brightening Eye Primer underneath may cause the texture to catch across the lid.
What is Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint's wear time?
This will vary depending on an individual’s eyelid shape and oil production. On drier lids, our internal testing shows that these will last a full day into evening. For oilier eyelids, unless set with a powder shadow, the oil breakthrough can appear sooner.
How long can I play with the formula before it sets?
Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint sets in 10-15 seconds.
Can I use along my waterline?
Due to the water-based formula it’s unlikely that Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint will stay put along the waterline. However it works great in the inner corner of your eyes to give them a soft metallic pop.
How do I apply Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint?
Using your fingers works the best but a flat brush, such as our Shadow Brush, works just as well. You may also use our Blending Brush to blend into the crease before it dries.
Will the color crease?
Based our internal product trials, these shadows do not crease. However, much like wear time, the way in which the formula interacts with an individual can vary from person to person. Generally, Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint resists creasing.
