Welcome to the weekly review series where 5 women in our GLAMOUR office test out the latest products landing our Beauty Editors’ desks. This week we’re getting into the spirit of Christmas and are trying out the newly-released Gen Nude Metallic liquid eyeshadow from Bare Minerals.
It comes with a wand applicator, and is very, very shimmery and creamy, so perfect for all those Christmas nights out.

Sophie Thompson, Junior Social Editor
Liquid eyeshadows are something I never thought I could love, but this one is perfect for understated glamour. You can have bare skin and it gives you a subtle, Hailey Bieber-esque glow that looks totally effortless…and best of all, it doesn’t budge! It also has 0 fall out, so the formula is perfect for nights out.

It’s a really smooth, lightweight and easy to apply liquid eyeshadow. The nude colour really works well on my skin tone to give a natural shimmer that reflects off of the light well. The applicator is also the perfect size to get an on-the-go shimmery eye look in no time.
Rosanna De Waal, Account Executive
It’s so shimmery and pigmented! A touch of sparkle that’s perfect from day to night, especially in the run up to Christmas party season. The creamy texture means it’s extremely easy to apply and lasts for hours, the perfect combination of a natural meets glam look.
Camilla Wilmot-Smith, Senior Advertising Manager
This eye cream is really smooth to apply, I like that you can layer up for richer coverage and increased shimmer – perfect for the upcoming festive season if you want to brighten up your eyes. This particular colour is quite natural so you could easily wear day or night. I really love the brush too, the tip is great for precision and the width of the brush works well for coverage.
Serena Connolly, PA to the Publishing Director / Assistant Producer
The Bare Minerals eyeshadow is very easy and smooth to apply, with much less fuss than powder and a brush (although the wand and tube almost makes it feel like you’re putting lipgloss on your eyelids!). I really like how pigmented it is – often as soon as you apply eyeshadow it wears off pretty quickly and that shine doesn’t last, however this feels durable and the shimmer has lasted all day.
