Stars Makeup Haven Eyeshadow, Part 3

It’s day 3 of Stars Makeup Haven week at TNBTTGSY! Stars Makeup Haven got its start selling 1″ (26mm) empty pans (the same size as MAC eyeshadow pans), thin magnets, and palettes — everything you would need to press your own loose eyeshadow. Now they’ve launched their own brand of cosmetics, and you have 50 new shades of incredibly soft, dangerously pigmented shadows to play with. They’re $4.95 each, BUT this week you can take 15% off your entire order (no minimum!) with the code karlasugar.
Stars Makeup Haven, SMH, eyeshadow, swatches, Limelight, Regal, Fresh, Evergreen, Mermaid, Mint Julep, Glam, Powder Room, Parakeet, Something BlueLimelight is a sheeny apple green. Regal is a shimmery forest green. Fresh is like shimmery astroturf, with a slight green/yellow duochrome. Evergreen is a matte shade the color of a composite tennis court (blued green). Mermaid is a shimmery, steely green-blue (a very fishy mermaid). Mint Julep is — rather surprisingly — a high sheen ice blue. Glam is a satin finish, and reminds me of Cinderella’s dress in the Disney cartoon. Powder Room is a bright, high shimmer shade the color of Alexis Bledel’s eyes in Sin City. Parakeet is a bright, shimmery, reflective lagoon blue. Something Blue is matte… copper sulfate blue?

About the contest. I now have more eyeshadow than I know what to do with, so every day this week I’m going to give away a pair of shades from that day’s swatches — this means (unfortunately), that your prize shadows have been swatched. Sorry about that. Today’s prize is Mermaid and Mint Julep.

  • PlatinumV says:

    >Darling, each day a swatch better than the day before. I love these colours (thank you for the comment about the delivery in UK… I am going to check if they are selling also in Italy) but still I have to ask you: why, even if I follow the same technique as yours, I cannot obtain the same brightness and coverage of your swatches? Please, teach me! :_(

  • PlatinumV says:

    >By the way, I was forgetting… in the future, is it possible you would post a swatch of Illamasqua products?
    I've ordered some eyeshadows, a lipgloss and a nail enamel, but they are so full of colours that I am tempted of buying everything :-P

  • jocelyn says:

    >Wow Karla, I love the color of mermaid, it looks beautiful! Thanks so much for all the effort you take to swatch and post pictures. You have helped me so much when it comes to decided what products I want! Thanks!!

  • ...ALLmEYEne... says:

    >I'm wondering if these shadows are easy to apply or if you get a lot of all out. Mermaid looks amazing and the blues are very vibrant. Thanks for swatching.

  • Mehendi Girl says:

    >Kayvid: I'm amazed each day by these! And do you really get a lotta ads regardfing tourism in India? LOL! :-)

  • Prestige Products says:

    >Metro, Mimosa and Guilty As Sin look fabulous… I'm sooo tempted to click on their site, but am working right now and this was part of my lunch break. ;) Thanks for your fab posts and swatching!

    btw, how many tourist ads do you get for India?!

  • Nykie says:

    >Oh no, i'm being tempted again! =Peers at pretty swatches through gaps in fingers=

    But seriously, at these prices, its really worth getting these, they look so pigmented! <333

    And yeah… Do you often get spam from India, or is that an analogy? I always get these weird calls from China though. STALKERS (See: Telemarketers)

  • Anna says:

    >mermaid is stunning! it looks like a shade from a stila trio from a few years back but less green. pretty pansy.

  • Jennifer says:

    >Stunning! WOW! Those look like they have incredible color payoff. Thanks again, as always, for swatching these!

  • Y says:

    >So far, I've been so obsessed with all the colors~ I am definately heading to Starsmakeupheaven to pick up all these shadows!

  • Lisa says:

    >You are truly an angel for doing all these crisp, clear swatches of products for all of us girlies who love makeup!

    I'd love to have Mermaid for my mom; she'd love it!

    And why do you think they'd name an ice blue color "Mint Julep"? Does it have even the teeniest drop of green in it?

  • Lily M. says:

    >Super gorgeous swatches! I saw these on Ren's blog (Makeup by RenRen), and she was raving about them. Didn't expect them to actually have so much pigment though. :D
