I am so excited to do this post, it’s been a long while since I’ve done a trend post, in fact, it’s been over a year and a half since I did my one and only trend post, which you can find here. I’ve been meaning to do another one but I can never quite seem to get a post together or figure out what trend I want to do, but this month I guess you can say I was feeling inspired and have decided to do a post all about duo-chrome products, they seem to be pretty popular and I’ve accumulated quite a few, all of which are either eye products or highlighters. So, let’s just jump into this post and talk about some duo-chromatic products.
Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Diamond Dust – This one is limited edition, but at this very moment in time it is still available for purchase at Ulta. I think this highlighter is really interesting, it’s fun and great for the summer time if you want to read a full review you can check my review out here.
Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Sea Siren – This is also limited edition and does not appear to be available on the Sephora website at this moment in time, not sure if there will be a restock but if there is you should for sure pick this one up if you’re looking for a really fun, purple duo-chrome liquid eye shadow. This one is so fun and also has glitter.
Makeup Geek Duochrome Highlighter in Moon Phase – This is the only highlighter I own from makeup geek and I quite like it, it doesn’t have the best formula ever but it does show up really strong and has a fun blue shift to it, while also looking icey sometimes.
NYX Strobe Of Genius Holographic Stick in Mermaid Armor – This is supposed to be holographic, but to me, it looks like a duo-chrome product. This shifts between purple and blue, it’s really quite pretty and I think this one is pretty wearable.
NYX Duo-Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel – This is one of the softest powders I’ve ever felt, which I personally think makes for a great product, this product is interesting to look out but probably one of the most wearable of the things in this post. It has a very strong pinky purple flash to it, it’s really interesting and I’m wishing I picked up a couple more now just to try out.
NYX Prismatic Eyeshadow in Mermaid – I love these eyeshadows! I have a few of them, I have another one that would have been even better in this post but I could find this. I love this shade so much still, it’s a really soft pretty light teal shade with a little bit of a blue shift to it, it’s very pretty.
Pacifica Rainbow Crystals Liquid Mineral Strobe Multi-Use Highlighter in Unicorn – This one is really interesting, I like to cream formula, I like the idea of these and overall I just really like this product. This one is icey white with like a pinky red shift to it, it’s fun!
Makeup Geek Duo-Chrome Shadow in Blacklight – I love Makeup Geek eyeshadows, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten one that I don’t enjoy and blacklight is actually one of my favorites. This is a really bright and little out there shade, but I find it to be very wearable and have worn it a lot of times.
Colourpop Super Shock Pigment in Kelp Me – I love this shade, it’s really bright and really fun, this is probably one of the lesser wearable shades but I also don’t think it’s that out there. This is a really bright peachy orange with a little bit of a pinky shift to it, it’s really subtle but bright.
Now, I think it’s time we talk about some swatches, because what would this post be if I didn’t show you what these products? Just not as good. I’m going to go top to bottom.
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Blacklight, NYX Prismatic Eyeshadow in Mermaid, Colourpop Super Shock Pigment in Kelp Me, Pacifica Rainbow Crystals Liquid Mineral Strobe Multi-Use Highlighter in Unicorn, NYX Duo-Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel, Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Sea Siren, Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Diamond Dust, NYX Strobe Of Genius Holographic Stick in Mermaid Armor and lastly Makeup Geek Duochrome Highlighter in Moon Phase.
And those are all of the swatches, all very fun and very pretty, I’m quite happy with how these all look.
I kind of really love the duo-chrome products that are floating around, so much so that I hadn’t even realized how many I had already owned. After writing this one I kind of one to pick up a few more things but I probably won’t, well maybe, we’ll see.
What other makeup trends would you want to see posts about?
