Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow Rio de Rose Gold Review

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow Rio de Rose Gold 3When I picked up the Josie Maran Winter Dreams Argan Color Collection at Christmas, my big justification for it was this little shadow which alone covered over half the cost of the set. I’ve been interested in these shadows ever since I first saw Allison Anderson talk about them, and now I finally have the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Rio de Rose Gold.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow Rio de Rose GoldThe Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Rio de Rose Gold comes in a glass dropper bottle although the applicator is actually foam. I actually had my foam applicator bit break off after a couple months, but Sephora easily offered to replace it.

There are two layers to the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Rio de Rose Gol, which you shake up before use—sometimes I find this a little more difficult than others. The top clear layer is coconut water, while the bottom provides the argan-infused metallic pigments. It is quite quite wet, so I apply it directly to my lid with the applicator although I will often blend it out a bit with my fingers. I usually add a second layer for extra opacity and pigmentation.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow Rio de Rose Gold Review 2 Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow Rio de Rose Gold ReviewOver the past few months I have often reached for the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Rio de Rose Gold as a single shadow look, because the bright metallic finish is so eye-catching and pretty I don’t want to add anything on top. I really feel like it helps brighten up my hazel eyes, and the rose gold ton brings out the green.

I also think this shadow would work great with a smokey eye, and looking at the photos of me wearing it now I am thinking I will try it with a darker shade in the crease next. Not only does the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Rio de Rose Gold look stunning, but it actually feels good on my eyelids, and the fact that it’s so hydrating means it helps “smooth” my eyelids as well.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow Rio de Rose Gold 2I absolutely love the vibrant, metallic look of the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Rio de Rose Gold, and ever since I purchased it I have been contemplating more shades. I am not always the best at reviewing products I’ve actually purchased (sorry!) but I am absolutely thrilled with this shadow and had to share. Have you tried a Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow yet?
