Top 5: Powder Shadow Brands

Continuing with the top 5 series I wanted to share my favorite brands for eyeshadow.  I think this will give a great starting point for those looking to expand the brands that they use, or simply looking for a reliable brands that has a large array of options.  I have considered price point, selection of colors and quality for the brands that I have chosen.

Bobbi Brown admittedly I am a bit biassed here.  I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Bobbi Brown cosmetics.  Mostly because she was my first real forray into high-end makeup, and gave me the chance to learn about foundation.  While she does mainly focus on neutrals, there are colors and textures that flatter every skin type.  The price can be a bit steep though.

Mac Eyeshadow in Goldmine

Another Mac Eyeshadow up for review!  I have posted several times about my dislike of Mac products.  However, since I have them I figure I should review them.

I actually use a good deal of Mac products despite having nicer products I could use.  This is simply because I am attempting to use up products I own and I decided to start by using up the products I am not a huge fan of first.

I would rate this product a 5/10

Mac Eyeshadow in Swimming

I was not sure if I was going to be able to post this week.  Not because of any time issues, but because my camera was not working this friday when I went to take my weekly pictures.  Luckily my dad was able to fix it sunday night.  Which ment I could finish my posts in the nick of time.

Any way, this is Mac eyeshadow in Swimming.  Weird name for a green shadow if you ask me.  This is considered a Lustre Shadow.  The last Mac shadow I reviewed (Jest) was a frost, though in all honesty they look the same to me.

I would rate this Product a 4/10

Completion Critique: MAC Jest eyeshadow

I have had this review somewhat in the works for several months.  The photos were taken about two months ago, and while since than significantly more pan is showing on the makeup I still likely have a month left before I truly use it up.

Let me start by saying I normally do not like MAC cosmetics.  I tend to avoid them for the most part, since i get fed up with their constant ‘limited edition’ products.  However, there are a few items that I think are winner but find are under appreciated on the cosmetic boards I visit. However:

I would give this product a 8/10
