MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadows


When it comes to eye shadows (especially the ones in matte - because you know, metallic or shiny ones can be quite deceiving) I only trust a few brands and those are usually from the brands owned make up artists. And I'm sure they've known the struggle with color, consistency and pigmentation when it comes to that. Dany Sanz of MAKE UP FOR EVER understood that with the renovated iconic and long-standing range of shadows called the Artist Shadows which are now at the top of my list when it comes to this category.  

CONSISTENCY 4.5/5
PIGMENT 5/5
EASE OF USE 5/5
TEXTURE 5/5
OVERALL 5/5

SRP: PHP 850 per piece; palettes

If you saw the photos of the launch, you'll see that the eye shadows are in mono's but there's freedom when it comes to selection of over 200 shades into palettes that can be customized to your needs. I chose the trio with shades that I can use for everyday - although of course if I have the luxury and occasion to buy all colors especially the unique ones like lime green, I would!

What's really nice and showing of the expertise placed on this product is the variety of textures. I wasn't able to swatch all but I did some in this post. Out of the 5 finishes, my favorites are the matte, metal and diamond ones!

Now swatching that ones I got representative of the Matte, Satin and Diamond finishes, you can see how pigmented and highly consistent the are. Although the Satin lack a bit of consistency, there is just no blank space on the skin!

But what I really like about the renovation is the fine texture of the product. It's soft and easy to blend which is usually difficult for shadows with high level of pigment.

The high color payoff lasts and doesn't fade easily. Moreover, I tried building the product and despite the high pigments, it stays true to its finish. For satin, for example, even if I tried 3-4 coats, my eyes still appeared transparent than opaque.

The high color payoff is at the most in the diamond finish. While the shimmers are just fine, the intensity of color is just intense! Black is really black in this case.

Overall, the artist shadows, which can be used dry or wet, are one of the best eye shadows out there, for me.
