Modern wash of color that nourishes lids / 0.2 oz
Kosas 10-Second Liquid 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 will be adored by makeup mavens. It’s the ultimate crowd-pleasing eyeshadow.
You can tell it’s different from the moment you open the package: Kosas’ shadows have a water-based formula that you have to shake well before application so that the pigment is evenly dispersed through the liquid. Then you paint it on with your fingers, 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.
10-Second Eyeshadow isn’t meant to be applied precisely; it’s intended to evoke the feeling of watercolor painting, and there’s something delightful about not needing to be so perfect with its application. For those of us Type A rule-followers in the world, this may seem a little unnerving, but luckily this product’s buildable coverage provides you with built-in training wheels. And who knows? You might be smearing on Nitrogen, that vibrant blue hue, with a carefree “Wheeee!” before you even realize it.
