Devinah Cosmetics Eyeshadows – Swatch, Review and Makeup Looks!

Another one of those indie brands I decided to test out. I picked out a small selection of nice green and blue shades, because those tend to be my favorites anyway, but the web -page had tons of pretty shades to choose from. I ordered these shades directly from their own site.

The shades I ordered where LMAO, Odium, Acapulco, Paladin, Buddy Blue, Cupid and Viridian. The last shade I clumsy enough to forget to put in the picture but it is a matte grass green shade.

I will talk more about how they performed but firstly lets just talk a bit about the brand. Because I love supporting small brands like this. It is a cruelty-free, sometimes vegan small business started and run by a true makeup lover that aims to create high quality, pure and well-performing eyeshadows for MUA’s and beginners and everything between. I love supporting a business like this with real passionate people behind.

But the most important thing for us consumers are how they perform, and I don’t do any reviews of eyeshadows without showcasing some looks with them. So here are what I did with these pretty blues and greens!

The pigmentation is spot on. They apply the way they look in the pan without any fuzz, a few of the shades like “Odium” had to be applied in a couple of layers to reach full opacity but in general they are rich and pigmented, and if needed definitely build-able. They were simple to work with. Bot hard to blend or apply or anything. A little bit of fallout but not bad at all considering these shades feel quite soft.

The grass green matte “Viridian” was really easy to apply and blend, but I have to admit I had some problems with “Buddy Blue”. However, they claim on the site that these are “Electradecent Body Pots” made not particularly for the eye but for body paint, SFX and similar stuff. They also claim that they need to be applied over a white base. So the reason why they did not work is definitely user error since I tried using this one just as an eyeshadow. I don’t think I will order more shades from the “Electradecent Body Pots” line, but the other matte impressed me and I will for sure pick up more of the mattes.

As with so many indie brands Devinah has a gorgeous and large selection of every shade under the rainbow. A very fancy feature is that you can choose the pan size! So if you know you are picking up a shade you are likely to use a lo, you can pick up a bigger pan! That is so neat! The 26 mm pans are the “normal” pan size and will cost you a reasonable 5$ which is a steal for the quality.

I really do recommend these and I am happy to continue growing my collection of these stunning shadows!

Have you tried any Devinah shadows? I would love to get color recommendations from you guys!

XOXO

Mufavorites!
