Hola Chicas! I’m here today with another review from an AMAZING Indie company called Evil Shades! I love my group of Chicas and they have officially made me addicted to Indie makeup! I’m totally loving it! If you haven’t tried Indie makeup you need to try it!!
Andrea is the owner of Evil Shades and is super sweet. There was a little mess up with my order and I sent her an email to let her know that I had received two of the same e/s. I even told her I would send her a picture to show her and she was like no worries I could have messed up when filling your e/s. Within a couple of days she sent me two new one e/s plus another e/s sample! Awesome customer service! She responded to my email quickly. If you have any problems or questions with your order she won’t keep you waiting.
I ordered Evil Shades Blogger/Youtuber Review Set which consisted of 4 eyeshadows, 2 blushes and 3 lippies of your choice. I ordered the following:
Not Your Barbie
E/S - Victorian Night
E/S – Faerie Dance
Visible Violet Spectrum Pot
This is how my ordered looked:
The packaging is made with LOVE!! This shows a lot on the owners part…well for me anyways. The packaging itself is super cute!! Who doesn’t love cute packaging? The best part is she personalized it with a “Thank You” note. I love when I order makeup and get it personalized for me =)
Here’s a breakdown of everything I got.
|With Flash on bare skin|
Sorry my hand kept shaking and I couldn't take a good picture w/o flash.
The one I had looked super blurry...no bueno!
These eyshadows are so pretty! All descriptions below are from the website.
Victorian Night - Medium Lavender with teal shimmer and a subtle blue green shift
Cerberus - Deep burgundy with fuchsia sparkle
Illusive - A red based matte purple
Reondite - Medium Aqua with pink shimmer
Banshee - Bright shimmering teal
Faerie Dance - Bold cobalt blue with aqua sparkles dancing throughout
These colors are amazing!! My favorite one is Illusive. This is an effin amazing matte e/s!!! I have been using this one like almost everyday. It's even more amazing applied wet! Don't get me wrong I love all of the colors, but I love matte e/s and haven't been able to find many good ones.
The e/s stay on long, no fading or creasing (used UDPP & ES Visible Violet Spectrum Pot) and they blend easily. I love them!
Brazen - a pink toned red flush
Burlesque - Light warm toned Peach with soft silver shimmer
These blushes are awesome! When I saw Brazen I was like OMG that super bright o_0 but it's a beautiful color. I love the way they both looked when I applied them on my cheeks. Burlesque is a pretty light color and I've been using it as a highlight on my cheeks. They've lasted throughout the work day for me. I apply it about 6:30am and by the time I get home about 5:15pm there still on. That's a good thing.
The pictures below were taken with flash.
First off the sample packaging was super cute! She sealed the little plastic package with a heart sticker which I loved! These lippies are awesome. I know I keep saying that but I'm loving her products! =) They apply very easily, pigmented and last a good 5 hours. The product itself isn't sticky or thick.
Spectrum Pots are versatile and can be used for almost anything! On the website it states all the different ways you can use this. I used it as an e/s base and it works really great. It feels sticky but not in a bad way. When I applied it on my lid it blended well. It felt like a NYX JP when blending it. There are 9 different colors available and she also has a Spectrum palette with 4 colors.
I really love Evil Shades!! Your money will be well spent here. I have no complaints. I will be purchasing more from here and I hope you all will try this company out if you haven't done so. =)
I know I'm sounding like a broken record right about now, but I'm loving Indie makeup companies. I love the fact that it's made with love and knowing that the owner is the one packing your items is awesome. Writing a little "Thank You" note says alot about someone. It shows that they are grateful and take pride in there products. That's what I love. I'm sure the owner of MAC isn't gonna do that on everyone's order! LOL =)
Here is a look I did using Visible Violet Spectrum Pot (E/S Base), Illusive (lid), Victorian Night (Crease blended up & under eyelid) and Cerberus (Crease to deepen it & under eyelid)
I need to really stay away from purples cuz my looks are looking the same =/ LOL but I love PURPLE!! Plus it's not the best lighting but oh well!! =)
