AURIC Entice Smoke Reflect Duo Review & Swatches

Entice

Auric Entice Smoke Reflect Eye Shadow Duo ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a new, limited edition powder and cream eyeshadow duo that included a sparkling, white gold powder eyeshadow paired with a rich, olive green cream eyeshadow. The two products performed well and lived up to the brand’s claims; they coordinated together particularly nicely but worked as well alone as they did layered.

Entice (Powder)

Entice (Powder) is a very light, white gold with a softer gold sheen initially that flipped to a brighter, darker yellowy-gold depending on the angle paired with larger, sparkly flecks over a transparent base. The consistency was smooth to the touch, lightly emollient without being too firmly nor too loosely-pressed into the pan, which made it easy to work with using a dry or wet brush along with fingertips.

The transparent base helped it work as a topper–its intended purpose–and it coordinated particularly well with the cream eyeshadow in the duo. It had medium to semi-opaque color coverage that was sheerer when used dry and more pigmented when used damp, which was in line with how it was marketed. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours with slight fallout over time.

Formula Overview

It is supposed to be a “light-reflecting” eyeshadow with “high-shine pearls” that can be used alone or as a top coat. The brand describes them as having “micro-glitter,” though only one of the shades reviewed contain plastic (PET) glitter.

They had more translucent bases, which was as described, but there was a lot of sparkle/shimmer, so the result was more medium to opaque, depending on the shade. The consistency was slightly drier, more firmly-packed into the pan overall with more of a glide than a denser, thicker silicone-like feel (like some more intense metallic formulas these days). One shade was noticeably drier/more firmly-pressed to the point where it seemed to impact the application/coverage relative to the other two shades.

They applied with minimal fallout and had good adhesion on bare skin, but they are best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush with a pressing/patting motion for the most minimal fallout and the most even lay down of product. I found that I had to be careful blending out the edges with a fluffier, drier brush as fallout was more likely to occur then. They lasted around eight hours and had light fallout over time.

Based on the line-up at review, they should work alone, as more of a sheer wash of sparkle, as well as more packed on as a standalone powder eyeshadow or patted over the coordinating cream eyeshadows they sit on top of.

Entice (Cream)

Entice (Cream) is a rich, blackened olive green with a mix of lighter, golden-olive and cooler, emerald green micro-shimmer throughout that gave it a soft, pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff paired with a smooth, almost mousse-like consistency that was airy, whipped but not overly emollient, so it delivered even, full color payoff that blended out well along the edges but didn’t slide around. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours before creasing a bit on me.

Formula Overview

/0.17 oz. – $0.00 Per Ounce

It is supposed to be “smooth, longwear[ing], [and] creaseless” cream eyeshadow. The texture was a cross between a traditional cream eyeshadow (which can feel wetter and thinner) and an airier, more whipped mousse. It was an intensely pigmented formula where one did not need a lot of product to get an even layer of product on the eye.

They had a moderate dry down time; they did dry down to a more powder-like finish that wasn’t budge-proof–I could still soften the edges a bit–but had a tendency to settle into my fine lines on the inner lid area as it was drying down, so I had to buff the product back out to even the product out. Once I did this, it didn’t keep creasing after the dry down. If I applied and buffed out the product as a sheerer layer of product, then this wasn’t an issue as less product was more apt to dry down fairly quickly compared to a more opaque layer of product.

The consistency dried down but wasn’t thick, heavy, or inflexible, so it paired well with other powder eyeshadows (not just the one included with it) and could be used as an eyeshadow base or eyeliner as well. Aside from the initial creasing (which I could blend/buff out) as it was drying down, once it dried down, I didn’t get creasing until the eight to nine hour mark.
