Review: PUR Cosmetics Eye Polishes

*Disclosure* I received these products complimentary  for review purposes. All opinions are 100% honest and my own, like always!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone here in the states who celebrate Thanksgiving had an awesome one! I know I did and I ate way too much food, which I'm ok with honestly. Today's post is going to be a review on the PUR Cosmetics Eye Polishes, which are said to be an eye base + top coat, and can be used as a standalone shadow. I was so excited when I got these in the mail and I couldn't wait to swatch them all!

Here is a description of the product from the PUR website:

Make your eyes pop in a blink! This eye primer and top coat’s pure pigment creates a crease-proof eye shadow base with a luminous metallic sheen. This eye-opening formula glides on with pro precision and builds with exceptional ease with the use of the enclosed Latex-free silicone applicator. Use alone as an iridescent cream shadow, under mineral eye shadows for visibly more vibrant color or over mineral shadow as a top coat to amplify color and add dimension to your eye look!  

The eye polishes come in little round pots that look like glass, but I'm pretty sure it's just really hard plastic, so hopefully there won't be any accidents. I completely forgot to take a picture of the inside of these, but there's a little mesh lining that holds the product in and a stopper type thing on the lid so it doesn't go everywhere. Design wise, they remind me of the Stila cheek colors. These colors though are just beautiful and perfect for any kind of look!

Here are swatches of the colors shown in order from the above picture:

Cashmere: shimmery champagne
Satin: sheer crystal pink
Suede: earthy seductive neutral (their description, not mine)
Silk: prism copper
Velvet: plush amethyst
Caviar: lavish black with gold karat flecks

These colors are just absolutely stunning, and the swatches are done in one single swipe. Talk about pigmentation! Each jar comes with its own little silicone applicator, but I use a brush specifically for cream shadows. That's just easier for me, but you may choose to use your fingers as well. I also personally wouldn't use this as a top coat for shadow, just as a base or alone. Since I have very oily eyelids, I do use an eyeshadow primer first, but you might not have to if you have normal or dry lids. I'm just so amazed with these colors, and they blend out nicely and look really incredible on the eye. 

They're a bit expensive at $26 per jar, but these will last you forever as long as you keep the lid tightly closed. I find them to be worth the price though, and I really hope they make more shades, especially some matte ones!

You can find these on the PUR website, Ulta and I believe Kohl's.

What do you think of these PUR Eye Polishes?
