AURIC Ego Smoke Mirror Eye Shadow Duo Evaluation & Swatches


Auric Ego Smoke Reflect eyeshadow duo ($ 39.00 for 0.23 oz.) Contains a sparkling, warmer pewter powder eyeshadow paired with a dark, greyish-taupe cream eyeshadow. For those who like high-gloss, sparkling eyeshadow and an off-white eyeshadow with longer playtime, both may be attractive. If you tend to wear your off-white eyeshadow heavier, the darker base is not as easy to fade out as other shades.

Ego (powder)

Ego (powder) is a light, golden tin with warmer undertones and a sparkling, high-gloss finish. The texture was smooth, thin, but not too dry, and while pressed harder, it wasn’t as prone to failure as something with a loose press, but was best used with moderate hand / pressure. I’ve found that when I tried to use it as a standalone product, I preferred applying it with a dampened brush, while a dry brush or fingertip was fine for using it as a layered shadow rather than (it seemed for both Functions intended to be).

It had a semi-opaque buildable cover, although the base itself was more translucent as described by the brand. The product was applied evenly to bare skin and had very little precipitate even when used dry because it adhered fairly well. It stayed fine for eight hours but had slight breakdowns over time.

I (cream)

I (cream) is a deep, gray-taupe colored base with a fine, multi-colored pearl that gave it a soft sheen. It had rich color coverage in a single layer where a little went a long way. However, the darker, gray base made it harder to apply as a clean wash and to get a really even finish. Personally, however, it read more mixed than it appeared in the photo (similar to how lip products can be more or less noticeably “personal” than on a close-up photo).

The texture was smooth and pliable without being as wet as expected. it was a bit more airy and foamy, which gave it good adhesion with larger coverage, while remaining miscible along the edges. It was a more playtime formula some might prefer, but I had to buff / hide the product on my inner lid area as it turned into fine lines a little as it dried out (although it didn’t happen in my actual crease). Once I did that, the product dried out and lasted for nine hours before showing any signs of wrinkles.

Formula overview

/ 0.17 oz. – – $ 0.00 per ounce

It should be “smooth, durable”[ing], [and] creaseless “cream eyeshadow. The texture was a cross between a traditional cream eyeshadow (which can feel wetter and thinner) and a more airy, heavier whipped mousse. It was an intensely pigmented formula that didn’t take a lot of product to get even Achieve effect product layer on the eye.

They had a moderate dry season; They dried off to a powdery finish that wasn’t stir-proof – I could still soften the edges a bit – but tended to get stuck in my fine lines in the inner lid area as they dried so I had to polish the product again to level it out . Once I did that it stopped wrinkling after it dried out. If I applied and polished the product as a sheer product layer, it was not a problem as fewer products were more likely to dry out quickly compared to a more opaque product layer.

The consistency dried out but wasn’t thick, heavy, or inflexible, so it went well with other powder eyeshadows (not just the ones included) and could also be used as an eyeshadow base or eyeliner. Aside from the initial wrinkles (which I was able to mix / polish) during drying, I didn’t get wrinkles for eight to nine hours after drying.
