MAKEUP FOREVER ARTIST SHADOWS 1 PALETTE
I have to say that the packaging was what caught my eye initially and once I tested out the shadows, I was convinced and knew that I needed to have this palette. There was a colourful palette with very bright and fun colours and then there was this one, more neutral colours. As I am a bit boring and not so daring I decided to go for the neutral more earthy toned colored palette.
As you can see from the swatches, the eye shadows do get swatches very well and is absolutely well pigmented. Most of the eye shadows are shimmer based and there is only one that is matte which is the black eye shadow. The eye shadows are super soft and very smooth and once you start applying them they blend very well and are actually true to it colours like in the swatches. I didn't need a base or primer to make the eye shadows pop, they already pop on their own so that was another plus. I on the other hand always wear an eye primer because my eyelids are naturally very oily so I need a base that will make it matte and therefore make the eye shadows last so much longer on my eyelids. The eye shadows did have a bit of fall out so watch out for that, specially the darker shades. Since there is a lovely mix of colours whether you like a smokey eye or a more neutral eye, you will be able to create a beautiful look.
I mean I can go on and on but the basic is that they are lovely eye shadows that is well pigmented and will show up on any skin tone. The wear time was usual nothing extra ordinary, they lasted well with a primer which was around 5-6 hours. There was hardly any creasing and fading which was the most impressive for me because normally no matter what my eyelids will always make sure that the shadows (no matter the brand) do crease ever so slightly.
Overall a lovely palette with gorgeous shades that blend like butter creating a lovely eye makeup. I have added this to my MUA kit as well and use it on my clients as well because it definitely is worth every penny. Have you ever tried any Makeup Forever eye shadows?
