Today I am going to bring you a review on some stunning mineral eye shadows by Madison Street Beauty. This beauty company creates environmentally friendly, 100% natural, vegan cosmetics that are not only safe but absolutely gorgeous and great quality. Although I buy all types of makeup it is always an added bonus when I find a brand that I know is cruelty free and won't harm my skin.
I received these beautiful loose shadows in an array of vibrant colors. When you visit the website there are so many color options to choose from that I found it difficult to narrow down which ones I wanted! Madison Street Beauty has something for everyone, whether you like soft hues, warm tones neutral colors or bold shades they have you covered.
These shadows come in 3 different sizes, large (2.5g), regular (1g) and sample size (0.5g). The different sizes allows you to get as much or as little color as you want. If you already know what colors are your favorites then the large jars are great, if you aren't sure what to choose then you can opt for the sample jars and get a large variety.
Right now on the website there are a lot of shades on sale. The regular prices for these shadows are only $4.99 each (for the 1g jar) and some are on sale for $2. Madison Street Beauty has successfully combined high quality, safe eye shadows at extremely affordable prices.
These mineral shadows apply incredibly pigmented! Unlike some loose shadows that are hard to build up these apply smooth and if you pat them on it is very easy to build up the colors and blend them out. I always wear a good eye shadow primer under my eye makeup but when swatching these shadows on my hand they were so pigmented that I didn't even need to use a primer to capture the richness of the colors for the photos below.
I am already planning which holiday events I am going to wear these gorgeous colors to. The shade Ocean Coral has the most glitter particles and gives off a nice sparkle effect; the rest of the shadows have a velvety smooth metallic finish.
Not only are these shadows long lasting but they don’t crease if you prime your eyelids and the jars have a sifter so you can control the amount of product that dispenses. The design is simple yet effective. For shipping I liked that the jars were shrink wrapped and secured because I hate it when my shadows are damaged and scattered into a mangled mess when they arrive at my door. The amount of product you receive per jar is determined by weight and the density of the individual shadow.
Madison street beauty also sells: nail lacquer, blush, bronzer, concealer, foundation, lip balm, setting powder tools and everything is eco friendly! I would love to try out some more items from this brand because the shadows are amazing and I would definitely recommend them.
I created this look using the color Emerald. This would be great option for Holiday parties, and events. It was simple to achieve this level of pigmentation, I actually used very little shadow and it produced an amazing effect.
Stars & Storms
For this look I used the colors Silver Star and Storm. I think this rich blue is a beautiful hue and easier to wear than lighter shades of blue. Silver Star can be paired with almost any other color or used as a highlight to brighten up the eyes. I used an eye shadow primer and built up the color to achieve this deep blue saturation.
I am in awe at how beautiful and what great quality these shadows are. I recommend sifting out a tiny bit of product and dipping the brush into the jar. I also suggest using a good primer as your base and a flat eye shadow brush to pat the color onto the lid for less mess. My shadow remained looking great the entire day. I also recommend applying these eye shadows before applying any foundation, concealer or powder to your face so that you won't mess up your makeup if there is any fallout.
