This year has been very exciting in the world of makeup. Too Faced has caught my eye this year with their amazing spring 2014 launch inspired by none other than good old fashioned chocolate.

Sheba Mystical Goddess Eyeshadow Palette

I used a primer, and the eyeshadows lasted a full day! These are Italian baked and can be used wet or dry. They are very pigmented and being able to use the colors wet or dry allows you to create so many looks. Love that these colours can be used to illuminate, contour and highlight.

The Palette has a mirror, brushes, and a magnetic closure–so it really shuts!  It’s great that when you run out of the eyeshadow colors there are more magnets that hold the refills into place. Simply take one out and place a new one in the Sheba Mystical Goddess Eyeshadow case. That makes it so easy!  

There is currently free shipping for those who live in Australia, so make sure to take advantage of that amazing offer if you can!!

Flower Cosmetics: Shadow Play Eye Shadow Quad

Drew Barrymore has four shades of the Flower Cosmetics Shadow Play Eye Shadow Quad now available at certain Walmart stores, and online at Walmart.com. The Flower Cosmetics eyeshadows all include an applicator, and are advertised as having “color that blends evenly and flawlessly on the eyelid.” Each is priced at $9.98.

Here are the four Flower Cosmetics Shadow Play Eyeshadow Quads that I have for review:

Flower Cosmetics Details:

I like that the quads are easy to look into and see the colors. It’s great that’s there is a magnetic closure on each quad.

There is a piece of tape covering the quad so you can see that it has not tampered with; although some pieces of tape at my local Walmart looked like they were half-on, and others clearly had the tape broken.  Of course, that is not the fault of Flower!

I know that all of Flower Cosmetics are made in the USA, and each of the eyeshadows has this on the back: Flower Cosmetics

However, I have still not seen a full statement that there is no animal testing by Flower Cosmetics, or their suppliers.

Peel back the label above, and there are the ingredients listed and directions/suggestions on how to use the eyeshadows.

The eyeshadow that gave me some trouble was the top one– it was chalky.

I swatched these colors several times, (and under different lighting conditions) and the third color down, the lightest of them, really blended into my skin color.

My favorite of the eyeshadow quads was Face the Grey. So, that’s what I used  in my photo below:

You can use the applicator that is provided; I used my own eyeshadow brushes. The directions are to apply the lightest shade as a base color to lid up to the brow bone. Apply colors to lid, with darkest shade in the crease. Blend well. You can use the Flower eyeshadows dry (as I did) or wet, for more intensity.

First, I applied an eyeshadow primer. I used #1 on my brow bone, #2 on my lid, #3 in the crease and eyeliner on top lash line, #4 eyeliner on bottom lash line

 Final Thoughts on Flower Cosmetics

I watched Drew on the Katie Couric show. Here’s a tip about the applicator: use the large end of the applicator (that is included) for lids, and the smaller pointy tip for liner and crease.

I really liked the Eyeshadow Quads. With the exception of the one chalky one in the Blue Lagoons palette, I found them all to be of high quality, no fall out at all, and the color lasted all day! At a price of $9.98, I felt that it was money well spent.

Disclosure: I purchased three of the eyeshadow palettes, and received one for review. All links are for your convenience only.
