Review: There was a time a year or so ago when the "jelly" hype started. I never jumped into the jelly trend bandwagon cause I found it gimmicky. However, after falling in love with the Morphe 2 line, I had to try this. It didn't hurt that Ulta had a 30% off sale at the beginning of March so I hauled a few more items. As mentioned in my previous review, similar to most Morphe 2 packaging this comes in a white box with black typography and the "2"embossed. The shade of the product is printed on top of the box flap along with the actual (or as close as it gets) color or shade. I picked up the shade bright idea which is described as a champagne pink color.
It has a bouncy and wet texture, hence its name Jelly Eye Shimmer. I like that it is not too wet which makes the product stay in place instead of slipping and sliding. When I tried this on a few weeks ago, I decided to apply a skin tone shade on my eyelids before applying this on the lids. It seems like it made a difference and made the color pop more. I believe without any powder shadow base underneath; it is going to be sheer but I believe that is what this shadow is going for as Morphe 2 is known for its natural makeup style. Finger application is best with this product. It blends easily but it also dries down quickly so you have to work fast. You can use a flat brush to fix the details as needed although you might need to spray the brush with some setting spray so you can slightly move the product around since it dries quickly. This is not a pressed pigment like the Hourglass Scattered Light pots or the ones from Marc Jacobs and Tarte so it is not going to be as metallic. This, however; will give your eyelids a nice pop of shimmer. I actually enjoyed this Jelly Eye Shimmer and would like to pick up a couple of more shades. Have you tried this product yet? Are you a fan of jelly-based or jelly-type of products?
