Blue eyeshadow lovers, I really think Stars Makeup Haven is your brand. (Don’t worry, neutral lovers: I’ve saved a little something for you tomorrow.)
For those of you just joining us, this week we’re admiring all 50 shades of a relatively new makeup line. SMH got its start as a website selling pigment-pressing supplies and empty palettes — and though they still sell those items, they’re applying their wealth of cosmetics experience to developing their own line. They’ve started with these remarkably soft, and incredibly pigmented eyeshadows — $4.95 each, sold in pans the same size as MAC’s (1″ or 26mm).
For the rest of this week (ending Sunday, August 16), SMH is also offering you readers a special discount: 15% off your total order with the code karlasugar.
1492 is an intense, reflective, Dodger blue. Pacific Rim is matte smoky blue. Walkin’ After Midnight is a shimmery blackened sapphire. Dress Blues is a reflective, shimmery cerulean. Steel Away is a shimmery country gingham blue. Electra-fied is a very sparkly, shimmery silver. In a Bind reminded me of MUFE’s Star Black Aqua Eyes liner, and I think it’s just slightly warmer than Smoke & Mirrors, which is cooler and more silver. Unzipped is matte black; The White Shadow is the matte white I alluded to earlier in the week.
