DuWop Shadowlift Liquid Eyeshadow

Is a Solution for:
Sagging Skin
May 7, 2009 Reviewed by Emily 6 Comments
I am obsessed with the skin around my eyes. I am convinced that my almost life-long contact lens use, and the subsequent pulling and pushing of my eyelids, has caused irrevocable damage. I am constantly examining the area for a new crease or foreign texture. The droopy eyelids, crepey under-eye skin, laugh lines, crow’s feet—they are my mortal enemies. So when I heard about the first anti-aging eyeshadow, I wanted to try it immediately. A way to deliver anti-aging benefits directly to the area around my eyes? Yes, please!

There is plenty to be excited about. For starters, antioxidants Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and pomegranate seed oil improve skin texture and protects it from free radical damage.

Even more interesting is beta-glucan, an anti-inflammatory derived from oats, independently proven by a University of Alabama study to improve the length and depth of skin wrinkles. It is also used as a wound healer and anti-bacterial agent. Another anti-inflammatory ingredient, allantoin, is essentially a soothing cream—a good moisturizer that promotes skin cell renewal. Not bad at all.

On the skin-tightening front, Pepha-Tight is an algae extract that softens the skin and immediately causes tightening. In the long term, it also strengthens the skin's connective tissue by stimulating collagen synthesis and acting as a protector against stress damage. So in theory at least, it has an instant effect as well as benefits over time.

With all of these good ingredients, the big question is how does this liquid eyeshadow work as makeup? The answer is, quite well indeed. The Shadowlift goes on smoothly and made my skin feel cool and refreshed. It definitely perked up my eyes—the skin looked brighter, my lids less droopy. It comes in four pretty, soft shades, and it can be worn alone for a very subtle, sheer daytime look or layered with other eyeshadows for a more dramatic effect. Either way, my eyes looked as though they opened wider, and I felt seriously younger. Contact lens damage was substantially less noticeable. I was happy.

One minor annoyance is the packaging. It comes in a small tube/pump contraption, and too much comes out with every pump. Even though a little dab will do the trick, a lot comes out and gets wasted. As a result, it’s quite easy to go through a large amount, and quickly.

Fellow eye-obsessives, rejoice! This product is a great weapon on the war against sagging skin around those peepers.

    Hi Kathy,

    I used the Spirit color--a very pretty neutral shade.

    Hi Angela,

    Glad to hear that I am not the only person who is eye-obsessed! I, too, love that Patricia Wexler eye cream. My own standby, however, is MD Skincare Lift & Lighten Eye Cream. Claire wrote about it in November:

    Hi Angela,

    I am just about ready to review the Relax plus product and it has really worked for me. So well in fact that I just bought a second bottle and will continue to use it for an additional month or two to see what happens.... will post about it soon.

    Emily, I am eye-obsessed, too! There are a couple of products I've found to help with drooping eyelids, crepey under-eye skin, and my crow's feet. PTR's UnWrinkle serum (the regular not the Eye) keeps my under-eye skin from gathering/crinkling when I smile and it helps minimize the crinkling of my crow's feet, too. Patricia Wexler's Intensive Eye 3-in-1 Cream helps lift my drooping lids. Every time I stray from these my eye area does not look as good! I tried the Faitox-25 after reading about it on here in hopes that it would be a cheaper replacement for the PTR UnWrinkle. However, it did not work as well for me as the PTR. After reading Kate's review for Cellular Skin Rx's Super Max serum, I checked out their website and was intrigued by their Relax Plus Vialox, but it is slightly more expensive compared to the PTR. I get about 3 months of use from UnWrinkle for less than $120 (I shop around for deals on it) whereas the Relax Plus is $42 for a one month supply.

    What products are your favorite eye area products?
