REVIEW: MAKE UP FOREVER STAR POWDER

1:15 pm

Hi guys!! 
How is it going?!


Today I am going to be reviewing the Makeup Up For Ever Star Powder.
I got these products because I am always in search for nice pigmented loose eyeshadow, and also you know beauty hype.



So I read about these products a few times, and also came across them in some youtube videos. Makeup Forever says: The Star Powder is a silky powder that catches the light and gives the skin an intense sparkle and extreme shine. Okay this is what I really think...


MAKE UP FOREVER STAR POWDER 954



This is a purple color as you can tell from the picture.

Swatched, it has some iridescence feel to it.   It is a really pretty purple that shimmers and shows different shades of purple depending on the light. It is soft. and really smooth to apply. The pigmentation is ok, nothing special or spectacular. You might need a primer ( well we use primers anyway!) to get a good long lasting result from this one

This is another pretty shade. It is an orange shade that could show as a burnt orange or a very light orange depending on how it catches the light. It is really pretty. i love the shade.

Getting the color to show up was another ball game entirely. The color payoff was just ummphh.... With a primer it turned out better, the color popped!

I was almost giving up on the color payoff of these products sans primer, before I swatched this one.

As soon as I swatched it. it was 'bam! no we r talketh!'  Urgh this color is just so prreeetttay! I haven't seen anything like it actually. It looks like MAC's paradisco  but way more pretty and sparkly. This shade is a pale pink with pretty gold reflectors. However the pigmentation only a bit better than the previous two. But its prettiness makes up for it. lol

This shade is a rusty copperish burgundy. And if the other were like, say...6/10, this one is a 10/10. Pigmentation, consistency, shade, texture everything!

The color payoff of this is amazing!! This one you might not need a primer for. The reflectors in this shade are purple in color and they make it so pretty and intense. This is my fav out of the bunch because this how I expect my loose eye colors to be! Pigmented and intense.  No smeh smeh.


CONCLUSION

All the eye colors deliver a different intense finish when used wet. I applied all of them with the BenNye Final Seal spray and I loved the result.

But with the hype Makeup forever receives one would expect more consistency in their products. I googled different shades and saw that some are actually pigmented, so I guess it depends on the shade you pick up. But for $20 a pop, and $25 for the diamond collection, I expected more from these products.

That's it! 


I am working on my next video, hope you guys tune in!
Much love
