Eyeshadow,  Swatches

Glaze Over Shimmer Top Coat by Jaclyn Cosmetics – Swatches and Review

A sparkly eyeshadow topper in a range of neutral colors – I had to try it! I can’t tell for sure if these are limited edition or not, but the price is still discounted from $26 to $15.60. But in case you are wondering what these swatch like or are feeling like you missed out and need a dupe, I’ve swatched the shades Tinsel and Icicle against other similar shadows in my collection.

Shimmers always look better in video, so head over to my Instagram @stefsedge to see these swatches in motion.

The product is packaged in little frosted glass jars which I love. Glass feels so luxe and can be recycled easily.

These have a gel-like texture that feels a bit cool to the touch. They are very smooth and don’t feel chunky at all.

On The Eye

I created a single shadow look using the shade Tinsel applied with a normal dense eyshadow brush. I really didn’t have any trouble. I did build up the lid area using a few layers of product. These are after all just marketed as a “top coat”, so I think some sheerness is to be expected. The shade tinsel has a bit of pigment that blended out nicely around the edges. The sparkle of these is not at all captured well in a still photo, so keep that in mind.

The shadow stayed put and didn’t crease. I even took a nap and didn’t notice anything disastrous happening to the eyeshadow. So I have to say my experience was really very good.
