I’ve got a few of these items today for you, so let’s get started.
Multiplex 3D Eye Shadow Palette
This eyeshadow palette comes with six shimmery and very pigmented colors. They claim that they are prismatic and have holographic lustre, but only one of them seems to have that effect.
All of these are extremely soft and velvety. You barely need to touch them to get a lot of color payoff, with the exception of the black one, which is just a little less pigmented.
Top row: The first color is a warm pale gold. Next we have a warm bronze. Then there is an uber-cool plum/brown/green duo-chrome shadow. This is the one with a very strong prismatic effect, it’s gorgeous!
Bottom row: First up is a strong silver. Then we have a deep navy blue with multi-colored glitter. Lastly we have a black with multi-colored glitter.
I think all of these colors are really quite nice and I especially like the duo-chrome and the deep blue and black ones.
3D Liquid Lustre
Now this stuff is interesting! I have never really seen anything quite like it.
3D Liquid Lustre is a shimmery product that comes in a glass container with an eyedropper-type of applicator. It’s meant to be used as a top coat for eye shadow, or it can be worn on it’s own for a shimmery effect.
3D Liquid Lustre
You can see it most certainly is shimmery and it leaves a silvery/gold shine to whatever you use it on.
I have yet to try it over anything or wear it on my face, but I get the feeling a very little goes a long way here!
Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss Duo
I really like these lip glosses, they are super dimensional and very shimmery looking.
They are on the thicker side so they tend to feel a little sticky, but not as sticky as say MAC Lipglass does.
They aren’t super pigmented actually, which was what I was expecting, but rather they look a little more natural when you apply them on the lips.
Also you don’t really feel the grittiness of the glitter in these much because it’s fairly fine. They last around 2 hours before you might need to reapply.
4D is a light rose colored pink with lots of glitter. In the tube it looks extremely pigmented, but when you apply it, it’s actually a bit subtle and more “tame”. I quite like it and think it would also look really good as a layering color.
3D is a bronze color with pink glitter. I didn’t think I would be able to pull this one off because it looks so warm and dark in the tube but it’s actually pretty wearable and not as pigmented on.
From what I have seen of this collection I think it’s pretty cool and unique. I love the eyeshadow textures and colors. They feel so incredibly soft and I love major pigment! The Liquid Lustre is kind of a cool product but I’m not sure how much I would really use something like that. The lip glosses are great if you are looking for something with lotsa glitter and shine!
