Face Candy Couture Eyeshadows

Was that not the shortest weekend in history? Honestly it feels like I only left work 5 minutes ago and I’m back in tomorrow. Grrr! I’ve been enjoying my usual Sunday evening pampering session (currently tapping away wearing a chocolate face mask and intensive conditioner)

Recently I was contacted by the lovely Shantle who created the Face Candy Couture eyeshadow range. Her company is just starting out and she asked if I would try a few products and let you know what I think so here goes…

Over the last week I’ve worn all 6 colours I received (sometimes combining 3 colours in 1 look) and I’ve got compliments every single time I’ve worn them. Gotta be a good sign, eh? :)

Carribbean Dream, Lavender Fields and Smurfette

Each pot comes with 1.2 grams of powder and the jars have a little sifter so you can shake out what you need, making them much less messy to apply than some loose powders (Yep, that means you Dazzle Dusts!)

The little sifter on each jar - very handy indeed but I removed it from the jars so you can get a good look at the colours!

The powder is extremely finely milled so it’s easy to apply and blend; even though there’s quite a lot of glitter in some of them they’re still seriously smooth. I always use a primer when before I apply loose powders and I’ve found these to be so highly pigmented that the colour comes off on my lid exactly as it looks in the pot. Dunno about you but I often find you need to apply LOADS of product in order to make the colour come off as strongly as you’d like!

Pinky Star, Harvest Moon and Copper Bliss

To be honest I haven’t found a single fault with these so far – I love everything from the cute names to the beautiful shades and I shall be ordering a few more as Christmas pressies for my makeup obsessed friends

Did I mention you can get free samples from the website?

Oh oh oh!! Nearly forgot! I'm gonna be posting a giveaway so you can win some of these fantastic shadows so keep an eye out ♥

The colours look really nice! And I love how a lot of powders are now coming with a same kind of sifter, as I think it is more hygienic and so much easier to use...

Wow another giveaway! You're too nice ^^

All Made Up said...

Thanks for all your fantastic comments!

Apologies for the lack of swatches…It’s been dark when I’ve been leaving for work and dark when I get home which has been a nightmare for taking pics cos I need natural light to ensure the colours look accurate. Pfft, doesn’t the weather realise it’s getting in the way of my blogging?!

Cheeky Beauty I’m building myself up to do an EOTD or FOTD post! Kinda camera shy so I’ve been putting it off for AGES!

Bibi I couldn’t agree more. I adore Barry Ms Dazzle Dusts but the little pots are a bit tricky, esp for a clumsy oaf like me. I’d love to take credit for the giveaway but it’s actually the lovely Shatle from Face Candy Couture who’ll be providing the goodies. Hurrah for free eye shadows!! :)
