Modern wash of color that nourishes lids / 0.06 oz.
Kosas 10-Second Gel Watercolor Eyeshadow is the perfect example of what we love about this California brand. It’s an easy-breezy product that everyone can confidently apply — but it’s also an intensely pigmented product whose performance and color payoff is adored by makeup mavens. It’s the ultimate crowd-pleasing eyeshadow.
You can tell it’s different from the moment you apply it: after gliding the gel-based formula onto your lids using the applicator, and it feels marvelously cooling and skin-friendly — because it is. The Kosas team formulated their shadow with nourishing jojoba oil, orange flower water, and polysaccharides so that your lids are tended to. And despite the nourishing ingredients, the formula dries quickly (10 seconds!) so that you don’t even think about it until someone remarks on your cool new look.
To apply 10-Second Eye, swipe it on one lid at a time; wait 5-10 seconds; then tap (don't rub) with your finger or an eyeshadow brush. You can start with a sheer application and layer to your perfect level of coverage. If you were a fan of the original Kosas 10-Second Eyeshadow, this is similar in that it's also like painting your lids with watercolors, but this new one is gel-based (not a liquid), so you don't have shake it before application. And if you were partial to a particular shade, check out the list below: it probably came back under a new name.
