What is "wet" or "dry" eye shadow?
Some people prefer their eye shadows "dry" because of the ease of mixing and the way it looks. Daily Lovelies products are shipped dry, which means it is shipped in a "loose" powder. Other people may prefer "wetting" the eyeshadow, which can help increase the vibrancy of the eye shadow and make the application last longer.
