Stars Makeup Haven Eyeshadow, Part 8

It just wouldn’t be a new release from Stars Makeup Haven if we didn’t see some wild colors.

Today concludes our swatch-look at the 32 newest shades of SMH eyeshadows — and true to the brand’s beginnings, there are some really bright new shades. These shadows come in 1″ pans (the same size as MAC shadows), and are $4.95 each — though from now until Sunday, you can take 15% off your order with the code karlasugar. Stars Makeup Haven also ships anywhere in the world, so don’t let your location keep you from placing an order.
Stars Makeup Haven, SMH, eyeshadow, swatches, Fireflies, Call a Treuse, X-Treme, Teal Tuesday, Scandalous, Rush Hour, Southern Belle, Bombshell, Sparks, Cat's Meow, EuphoriaFireflies is a creamy, matte, dirty yellow. Call a Treuse is a matte chartreuse. X-Treme is fluorescent, matte, highlighter yellow (and not as effortlessly pigmented as some of SMH’s shades. I’ve gotten used to “kicking it up to eleven” in just one swipe).

I think of all the new shades, I heard the most whispered excitement for Teal Tuesday and Scandalous — but I just don’t know if these two were as smooth and creamy as, say, Evergreen and Regal. Rush Hour is a very white, frosted mint. Southern Belle is a satin pale pink. Bombshell is matte pink-melon (which reminded me a bit of Paradisco). Sparks is a frosty red/orange-copper. Cat’s Meow is frosty bubblegum pink; Euphoria is matte fuchsia.

Now, about today’s giveaway. Now that you’ve seen all the shades, I’d like you to put together a fantasy quad and give it a name.

Leave your entry in a comment below — tomorrow I’ll announce all the winners from this past week, and then they will be responsible for emailing me over the weekend (or I’ll pick new winners on Monday). That way nobody’s email address is exposed to spambots. Cool? Cool.

Today’s prize shadows are Rush Hour and Call a Treuse. The prize shadows have been swatched (sorry). The contest is open to anyone, anywhere in the world, and it ends tonight at midnight, CST. Good luck!

P.S. Look for bonus giveaways on Facebook and Twitter! Just sayin’
