Year’s ago, the line was at Naimies, and I’m sure I saw it at Sephora. Then there was this HUGE sale, and POOF! Everyone thought Vincent Longo had gone the way of the dinosaur.
The first time I noticed it again was mere *months ago, at Space NK in Bloomingdales. Even then, I didn’t give it a passing glance. Like, who’s got Vincent Longo on their radar anymore?
But… let’s be fair. I don’t know WHY the company got dumped by so many retailers, but it’s not like the products are awful. As little as I remember about the line, I don’t remember anything about it being of poor quality.
So, I decided to give ol’ Vince another shot:
This is the liquid eyeshadow in a color called Lovely Brown. It looks like a lip gloss (and sort of applies that way), but it blends out like a mousse, and SETS like an Aqua Cream. OMG. It stains at little bit too. After I did my swatch:
…I tried to wipe it off and it did NOT budge! That swatch doesn’t even do this color justice. It’s a rich brown with aubergine undertones, and the slightest hint of gold shimmer. Just stunning. I’m truly impressed.
I’m starting small with this line. Just the shadow. If this one performs, there are a bunch of other colors that I’ll go back for. Vincent Longo… welcome back to my radar. Consider me a cautious… but blossoming fan.
