Chrome Eye Mousse?!

Chrome Eye Mousse?!

Summer is coming, so that means sparkly, bronze eyes galore. Only my favorite look ever. If you have a bit of a tan, pair it with that eye look and some glossy lips and kaboom, Victoria’s Secret model in the making. But seriously, I think I just found a really easy and affordable product to make those sparkly, bronze eyes a simple reality.

I’m talking about the J. Cay Beauty Pris-Metal Chrome Eye Mousse. These pack a huge punch and come in a variety of shades. Plus, since it’s from J. Cat, you know these are great quality at an amazing price point.

First Impressions

Immediately after swatching the two colors I purchased, Champagne Wiz and Chrome Galaxy, I could not wait to get these one my eyes.

The first look I did using these products was a simple bronze-y, halo eye. I only used Chrome Galaxy for the look. Although J. Cat recommends that you use your finger to apply, I wanted to test out what using a brush would be like.

I used a flat shader brush and picked up a small amount of product. I did not wet or dampen my brush before doing this. The application using a brush was alright, but it wasn’t until I went in with the second layer on my finger that I saw the power these mousses have.

The product applied very effortlessly and did not need much blending. In fact, after I applied the mousse I went back in with a clean eyeshadow brush to blend the edges, and the product did exactly what I wanted it to.

I will say that the product needed a few layers to show the intensity that I wanted. The nice thing was that these layer up really well and didn’t ball up or bunch on my eye. They also dried down pretty fast and didn’t move around.

Final Thoughts

Honestly, I am obsessed with these. I think for the price point and performance, you can’t really go wrong. The product applied seamlessly, layered up well, gave me the intensity that I wanted, and best of all, they didn’t budge ALL DAY. I had this on for a full day and it never once creased or moved around.

Plus, it was just as intense when I took it off as it was when I applied it. This product is 110% Haley recommend and I can’t wait to purchase more colors!
