When the Rimmel Wonder Cloud Liquid Eyeshadows first launched back in March, I did a reveal post, and as I said in the original post, I was excited about this launch as they looked remarkably similar to the Glossier Sky Wash Eyeshadows.
I love a good dupe, and cream eyeshadows are one of my favourite makeup products, so I couldn’t wait to give the Rimmel Wonder Cloud Liquid Eyeshadow formula a try. Keep on reading to find out more…
“Wonder’Cloud Eyeshadow is an all-day wear soft eyeshadow. Whipped texture blends like a dream with fingertips, for buildable color you can control.
Ultra soft tapered applicator for quick and mess-free application. Built in primer allows for all-day wear and zero creasing.“
The Rimmel Wonder Cloud Liquid Eyeshadow is a range of liquid eyeshadows with all day wear claim, and a matte formula. In the UK there are eight shades available, however in the US there are only five shades available.
I don’t know why that’s the case, as the UK usually gets the smaller shade range, but it’s a shame the shade range isn’t the same globally. All eight shades look very pretty with a range of neutrals and a couple of pops of colour like a mint and a lilac.
From the right shades on offer, I chose the Rimmel Wonder Cloud Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade 002 Foggy Beige which looked like a pretty cool toned light brown from the online stock images.
In reality, it actually warms up when applied to the skin. If you look at the colour in the tube, the swatch looks very different, but it’s still a super wearable shade, and it’s perfect for a one and done makeup look.
It has a completely matte finish, and is a little sheer. You can’t get full opacity with this formula, even with multiple layers, it remains relatively sheer.
I like cream eyeshadows as they work well alone, but they also work well when layered under powder eyeshadows. However, the Rimmel Wonder Cloud Liquid Eyeshadow formula doesn’t lend itself well for being layered under powder shadows.
Even though the shadow does dry down, it has an almost tacky finish, which means shadows applied over the top don’t blend, and end up very uneven and patchy.
So it’s a shadow that needs to be applied and worn alone, or at least this shade does. Barry M have also just launched a similar product, and I’ve bought several shades, so I’m looking forward to trying them and seeing how they compare.
