Jane Iredale Eye Gloss in Wine Silk

Jane Iredale Eye Gloss Wine Silk

Ever since I came to Belgium I kept hearing about this makeup brand called Jane Iredale. Of course, my interest was piqued after browsing through the products. Yet for some reason I am always a bit hesitant about trying products from brands I do not know. Is this weird.. or are others apprehensive too? I mean, the packages and products looked beautiful.. but I did not know the brand well.. so I kept my distance until now.

Jane Iredale is the founder of the company Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, which was founded in 1994. So the brand is somewhat newish and was the first company to produce a collection of mineral makeup. The aim was to create products that look, feel and actually are good for the skin. I must say that I like the appeal of an all mineral brand. Jane Iredale has many eyeshadow products but there is one I find quite unique, namely the Eye Glosses. It comes in seven shades: Brown Silk, Champagne Silk, Grey Silk, Peach Silk, Wine Silk, Pink Silk and Aqua Silk. When I received the Eye Gloss in Wine Silk I became instantly enthusiastic, because I have never tried an eye gloss before. Have you? I mean, I suppose it is similar to a really creamy eyeshadow, but these babies actually look like glosses due to its packaging and applicator. 

Jane Iredale Eye Gloss Wine Silk

The Wine Silk Eye Gloss comes in a tiny box that has golden and blue writing on it. Inside there is this cute little see-through holder that allows you to see the shade of the eye gloss. The golden cap actually is a doe foot applicator with plenty of silky product on it. At first I thought it was really small, but I was comparing it to actual lip glosses and not to eyeshadows. We get 4.3 grams/15 oz worth of product, so that actually is not bad at all. Reality check. 

Jane Iredale Eye Gloss Wine Silk Swatch

What I find really interesting about the eye gloss in Wine Silk is that is seems to have two colors depending on the shade. It has a purple/redness to it, which explains the name, but the base color really is brown. So when you apply it straight from the doe foot applicator to your skin it looks more like wine and once you start blending it becomes a soft brown shade with a hint of purple here and there. It is quite a lovely color and very wearable on my skin tone, so I am very pleased about that. I solely chose this color because it had "wine" in it, haha. Just kidding. Not really. The first swatch still looks really smooth, but the blended out swatch is dry and will just not go away. I tried. Water does not do a thing. Regular makeup remover did work without having to rub hard.. well, I can not do that on my eyes.. so I am thinking we are going to need waterproof makeup remover or olive oil! Heck, I like that it is so set on staying on your skin. This product will stay on your eyelids all day without creasing

Jane Iredale Eye Gloss Wine Silk Beauty

It seemed kind of tricky to get something from an applicator on to your eyes. I mean, a lot of product comes off and I was worried about messing up the whole look, because the eye glosses dry quite quickly. However, I was really surprised with how easy the application really was. I opted for my fingers, rather than a brush, because I felt it would give me more control.. even if the look could become messier. Strangely so, it was not messy at all. I'm so impressed with my finger work ha! The first picture above is my eye with only Wine Silk Eye Gloss on (applied with my pinky). It takes some soft blending and moving around but it was really easy and the gloss did not dry out too quickly, so it gives you enough time to play around (not too much though). Jane Iredale recommends applying it with a brush.. but I could not be bothered. My fingers work just fine! Then I added highlighter  ("Buzz") and a third shade ("Liar"), just for the heck of it, from my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, some eyeliner and a mascara. Voila. 

Jane Iredale Eye Gloss Wine Silk Beauty Look

There you have it. My first beauty look with this product. It easily stayed on my eyes throughout the day. I did not have to worry about it fading or creasing. As you can see I blended it out quite a bit and wore it as a wash, so it was very soft and subtle. I also love how the color changes depending on how much you apply. I think that if you would use too much of the product or not blend it enough, there might be a chance of creasing.. so yeah, blending is important. The Wine Silk Eye Gloss feels really soft and silky to the touch and the packaging looks nice and luxurious, which is good because an Eye Gloss by Jane Iredale costs €16,30 per product (4.3 grams/15 oz). This is actually less expensive than some of its other eyeshadow products, though it is a more special one to me. You can buy Jane Iredale at Pourtous in (Maliestraat 18 in Utrecht) the Netherlands, Parfuma in Belgium, and for other countries click here. I really like the product a lot. It is tiny, so easy on the go, and all you need is your finger. It will save me some products when traveling.. but I am thinking ahead. Way ahead. Are you enthusiastic about the Eye Gloss in Wine Silk too? Have you tried any products by Jane Iredale?

  3. Ik hou normaal niet zo van gloss op je oog, maar jij laat het heel makkelijk en mooi uitzien! Ik ben trouwens benieuwd welke lippenstift of gloss je aanhebt? Ik kan erover gekeken hebben maar ik vind het precies niet terug.

  7. I haven't tried anything from this brand. In fact, I haven't tried an eye gloss all together, but I´d love to.
    As far as trying out new brands is concerned, I am pretty adventurous, except when they are very pricey.

    This look is absolutely lovely on you.

  10. Wat een bijzondere kleur dit!

  11. Oh my, that colour is gorgeous, I love it on you! I have never tried eye glosses before. it sounds a bit weird to me because I asociate gloss with lips more than eyes, but I admit it looks amazing! I did try Jane iredale BB cream an year ago or so, and found it a little heavier than I expected, but not bad!

    1. Yeah, eye closed is a confusing product indeed because it makes you think of the lips :p same here.. But luckily this eye gloss is great and not for on the lips (well, you could always try). I'll have to look into that BB cream ^^

  13. Ziet er echt heel goed uit! IK ben positief verrast. X

  14. Wat een prachtige kleur zeg! Ik zou zelf niet zo snel voor een eye gloss gaan, omdat gloss voor mijn gevoel op mijn lippen hoort, maar het resultaat mag er zeker wezen, erg mooi! :)

  16. Ik heb ooit eens zoiets gehad en dat was echt een heel gedoe. En na een halfuur zat heel mijn gezicht onder. Maar deze lijkt me dan wel een toppertje:)
    Leuke review en super mooie look!
