In general I just love Jane Iredale products!! I had high expectation for eye gloss too, and at first it felt great. However it does not go well with at least "cream to powder" eye liner, it makes the liner fade away in just a couple of hours. I do powder my lids well etc. And I dont have the same problem with regular eye shadow. What to do? I wouldn't want to go to liquid liner with eye gloss as it gives too "harsh" line.
I finally tried this product and I love it!! I use the champagne silk and it is perfect for me. I am spanish and it looks great. I sometimes use the moonglow on top. It is natural looking and that is what I like!
Omg love these! The tube with the gold lid is one of those unique finds you can only get from Jane Iredale! I have pink silk and auqamarine. My next will be champaign and bronze. I cant hardly wait to get these! They can be a soft wash of color which is beautiful or layers can be added for more drama. They are not sticky on me once dry and they last all day or night long no problem. I will collect everyone of these.
I was hoping to order Lilac Silk. What happened to it? :( please bring it back!
When I ordered this eye gloss, I expected it to be perfect for a little color and sparkle on those "running late mornings" when you don't have time to get out all your PurePressed eye shadows and brush them on. Sadly, I think the PurePressed and brush would be faster. While the color is fine, I suppose the problem is that is goes on VERY THIN. There is no coverage. You can't even see the first "coat" after blending with my ring finger. The second "coat" is somewhat visible, but lacking sparkle. And then, if you even have time to get into third and fourth "coats", it is finally almost equivalent to the coverage of the PurePressed eye shadow. Now the only way I use this is to highlight my brow bone.
Absolutely love the eye gloss. Creates a beautiful glow that stays put all day. I use this alone for a natural, pretty look together with the mystikol liner. It is all I want to wear. Would love to see some new colors, maybe a deeper taupe color.
I have this shadow in the purple color ,i have hazel eyes,and this color does nothing for them. I also have champagne ,it looks a little better ,but still ,it is nothing special..i guess i was used to the eyes to kill by Giorgio Armani and the high pigmentation of the color ... After all of the excitement about this product i was expecting to be wowed.
I absolutely love this product. It is indeed soft and silky. It feels and looks fabulous on and does everything it is hyped to do and then some. My girlfriend wanted to try it after seeing it on me and fell in love too. I will be purchasing several more colors.
Thanks, Jane. Now I'm addicted to *another* product! Eye Gloss goes on smooth and stays all day without creasing; I love it! I've been using champagne silk all over, then layering green silk over my lower lid; they're both semi-sheer and give me a subtle daytime look. Creme eyeshadows sometimes make me nervous because my makeup artistry skills aren't the greatest, but Eye Gloss is very forgiving and easy to apply.
I recently bought Eye Gloss in Champagne Silk, and this stuff really works wonders! It stays and won't rub off! One time I accidentally slept in my makeup, and the next morning it looked the same way as I applied it the other day! I like to use it alone or top it off with the Gold Dust or a different eye shadow. It works great as a primer. Never, ever discontinue this product! I'm going to buy it in various colors. Thanks, JI!
As a long to user of powdered eye shadow, I was skeptical of the Eye Gloss, especially when the salesclerk suggested Aqua Silk. The last time I wore blue eye shadow was in the 60's. However, I am a convert. Eye Gloss goes on silky, easily and lasts all day. And the Aqua Silk complements my brown eyes. What a surprise! Now I am ready to try the other colors.
I can't live without this product! Can I give it 6 stars? I use it every single day on my bare eyelid as a "primer" underneath eye shadow pressed powders. It doesn't crease (and EVERYTHING creases on me) and holds eye shadow in place perfectly and all day. I do not use their applicator, I either use my finger or an eye shadow brush. I have blue eyes and I own champagne silk for a bare eyelid canvas; mauve silk, which goes great with mystikols aquamarine, lapis lazuli and/or malachite and crushed ice eye shadow; and brown silk which I use with the J.I. daytime eyeshadow kit. I also get red itchy eyes from certain eye shadows and I find I can use any Jane iredale eye makeup product without a problem.
Love, love, love the feel and the staying power! Green silk looks great on fair skin with brown eyes. You can layer the color to make it darker, or put a light coat on for a subtle sheen and color. It is very easy to apply with your finger if you follow the little instruction sheet that comes in the box. I have already ordered another color (Grey silk) to try out.
As an older gal whose skin seems to change texture daily, I had trouble finding eye shadows that didn't pull the skin on my eyelids, crease or end up under my eyes by the end of the day. This one does it all!!! I am using the brown silk but will be trying other colors soon. My only wish is for options with less shimmer.
I love the Eye Gloss alone and I love it as a base to build upon with my Jane Iredale powder shadows. Stays put all day long, doesn't crease or smudge. Applies silky smooth and color stays true.
Love this eye shadow!! champagne is a terrific color! absolutely my favorite eyeshadow! Thanks ji!!
This is the best product for sensitive itchy eyes. Wear it all day with no problem for this contact lens wearer. Very highly recommend it. My favorite eye shadow product of all time.
I LOVE eye gloss! I have sensitive skin, particularly around the eye area and I usually have an adverse skin reaction to any eye shadows that have shimmer or sparkle. Kinda boring, huh? Well, not so with Jane Iredale Eye Gloss! It goes on silky smooth and provides just the right amount of shimmer and I can wear it all day with no adverse reaction! And it stays and stays with no creasing nor smudging. I ordered the Champagne Silk just a couple of weeks ago and am now online to buy more colors. My recommendation: Try one (or more!) and you'll be hooked!
I love the mauve silk and the lilac eye gloss. They are not overwhelming in shade and are easily applied. It is a great subtle look with my green eyes and dishwater-blonde hair. Thank you.
