Put on your hardhats, ladies (and fellas?), today’s shadows are extreme. We’re continuing on through the catalog of Stars Makeup Haven eyeshadows — and I should have mentioned yesterday that these pans are the same size as MAC’s, meaning they will fit in your 4- and 15-pan palettes (even E.L.F. palettes).
In a nutshell, SMH are incredibly pigmented (as you can see) and extremely soft and smooth — to reference the old Camel cigarettes ad, pure swatching pleasure. But you don’t have to take my word for it — enter today’s contest and try them for yourself.
SMH shadows are $4.95, sold as pans, though you can get 15% off your order with the code karlasugar, expiring 8/16.
Flare for the Dramatic is matte, fire engine red. Light My Fire is a shimmery sour cherry. Flaming-o is shimmery Miami-coral. Peachy Keen is more of a mango color — or maybe the color of cling peaches when you get them out of a can: a very orange yellow or a very yellow orange (also shimmery). Over the Moon is a shimmery dirty yellow (yellow dirtied with black). Mimosa is a softly shimmery yellow champagne; Cougar is more yellow, and cool. Sunshine Girl is a shimmery sour lemon (lemon with a bit of green to it). Olive Branch is a shimmery yellow olive. Metro is an intriguing, shimmery, warm steel. It’s slightly green-grey (kind of the color of money) — probably too cool for me, but I’m still fascinated.
I’m also happy to say I had no difficulty washing my arm clean.
