Don't get us wrong, we love Glossier just as much as the next beauty junkie. And that's especially true for their where-have-you-been-our-whole-lives liquid eye shadows appropriately known as Lidstar. Swipe the doe-foot applicator onto your lids, blend the pigment around and you're good to go in mere seconds. The only downside? It contains aluminum powder, which can lead to neurotoxicity, organ-system toxicity, and skin and eye irritation.

But now there's hope in the form of six shimmery, nontoxic liquid eye shadows with amazing color payoff and a silky, barely there feel. We give you Crop Natural's Bio Metal Liquid Eye Shadows.

This eye shadow goes on like a liquid and dries to a powder finish—without any fallout, creasing or fading throughout the day. While we'd venture to say it's more gel-like than liquid, we actually love the consistency for its buildable coverage and cooling effect. In addition to being totally nontoxic (all of Crop Natural's products are COSMOS Certified, formulated with organic plant-based ingredients and made via the world's most sustainable manufacturing processes), the Bio Metal Liquid Eye Shadows are made with natural ingredients like orange extract and vitamins C and E, which are totally safe on the delicate eye area and even help to improve the appearance of fine lines and discoloration.

From Graphite (our go-to for smoky eyes) to Saturn (a rose-gold hue that rivals Glossier's Cub), here are all six shades to add to your no-fuss, no-compromise beauty routine.
