Face Candy Couture Eyeshadows: Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

I don't normally post about make-up, but I do love playing around with make-up, whenever my son gives me the chance of course !  So I was really giddy at the idea of reviewing some mineral makeup from Face Candy Couture.

{Here's what I received: six (6) three(3) gram jars of mineral eyeshadow and 3 little sample bags}


{From left to right: Pinky Star, Lavender Fields & Damask Grey-this is without using any eye primer}

{From left to right: Golden Moon, Pumpkin &; Dew- A Touch of Autumn Collection- this is without using eye primer}


I tend to be very picky with the make-up I buy nowadays and mostly stick to one certain brand.  But, I loved all six (6) of the Face Candy Couture eyeshadows I received! 

You can use the make-up as shadows either dry{for a subtle look} or wet {for a more dramatic look}.

 You can also use it as a lipgloss; all you have to do is wet a lip brush, get some product on it and dab on your lips.

 I used the mineral makeup as eyeshadows and they  were very pigmented, so I didn't have to pack on a lot of product to make the colors pop.  The product goes on the brush easily, doesn't have a lot of fall out when you apply it and it's easy to blend. 

The jars in which the shadows come are clear and come with a cute label on the top and an ingredient list on the bottom.  Each jar has a sifter so you can easily control the amount of product that you need, just make sure to store them in an upright postion.

Face Candy Couture mineral eyeshadows would make for a great stocking stuffer for both make-up lovin' teenagers and adults.

For the price of $4.99 you can certainly get several jars {Product comes in a clear 5 gram jar with sifter and with approx. 1.2 grams of product }without breaking the bank.

Check out the Face Candy Couture  for more eyeshadow color options and great holiday specials!

  79. I received the set of eyeshadows on Friday. I'll write later on the week to give my own little review on Face Candy Couture eye makeup. Great timing too on the delivery of the eyeshadows because the holidays are upon us and it will give me an opportunity to try them on.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Sorry for not writing sooner, haven't been out lately, and on top of that I got sick so didn't feel like putting any make-up on. But I finally did and I can tell you that I'm loving them. These eye shadows are very smooth textured, almost creamy like. The colors are gorgeous and very strong, so you don't need tons of it for them to show and accentuate your eyes (the small sample bags are supposedly for only one application, but if you don't use a ton, you may use it for 2 applications). I loved all the colors, and the textures; plus they haven't made my eyes itch, so that's a huge plus for me, because most eye make-up make my eyes itch.
    Excellent products, beautiful colors, will definitely continue using them, and will definitely buy in the future.
    Thanks so much for this wonderful prize. I love it.
