I've never really tried anything from Makeup Forever, but I couldn't resist the neon pink starpowder (I dont know which shade it is, the number rubbed off) it was so bright and shocking and I thought I had found a product that i loved as much as MAC's pigments but more affordable. But after wearing it once for a day, it stained my eyelids!! I had pinkish ill-looking eyelids that no amount of makeup remover, moisturiser, ASTRINGENT!! would clean!!! I dont know if the store i bought it from sold me old stock or if its my bad luck for buying a one-off bad pot... but i was very dissappointed. anyone experience anything similar??
This is my first experience with a makeup forever product and I will forever be a fan! I plan on buying more of their colors - they are all so pretty! I started with 947 which is one of their lighter shades and it is gorgeous. Can't wait to go get some more, maybe I will become more daring and pick a more bold shade. :)
I bought two of these Star Powders- 910 & 947 (Celadon and Iridescent Pale Peach). I haven't tried the Celadon on my lids yet, but the #947 (Peach) is a pretty nice product! I wore it over eyeshadow, and it made my inner corners go from "wow" to "POW!"I didn't find this Star Powder to be as pigmented as MAC's pigments, but it didn't seem as messy as MAC's, either. I think that #947 reminds me more of a Bare Escentuals glimmer eyeshadow then a MAC pigment. (At least all the MAC pigments I own are definitely more vivid and sparkly then this Star Powder.)I still like this, and would definitely buy one in another color. It gave me the look I was hoping for and it didn't crease on me. When I use the 910, I will come back and update. continued >>
I absolutely love this! It's less pigmented than MAC's Pigment but that's what I like about this. It's great for blending on top of other colors or even alone it leaves the nicest shimmer that totally wakes up my eyes. The sparkle is unlike anything I've seen before. It's iridescent but not so much that it shifts colors dramatically in lights or anything. I can't quite put my finger on a word to describe it's color qualities but it's fantastic none the less, and lon g wearing too!
I have never bought an eyeshadow from this company, only the face and body makeup(Which is the BEST!) I bought the star powder in khaki-bronze and its beautiful on hazel eyes! Its not too glittery, so dont be fooled by how it looks in the container. Its so pretty in fact that I'd like to try out a few more colors. Im close to 40 yrs. old so I wasnt sure if this would look good on me, but Im impressed!
This brand is a million times better than MAC. Yes, MAC has more shades to its credit, and their lipglosses are pretty much unbeatable, but the star powders are incredible for pigment lovers. Great colors, great price, beautiful effect. These have made me a Make Up Forever customer.
Oh my lord! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've always been curious about these shadows, but I had never tried them until I received on in a swap. I am SOOO glad I tried them out, I wanna buy them all!! The color is fabulous...you can go sheer or bold quite easily. I love that you don't have to mix them with any sort of mixing medium. Oh, and I have yet to experience any sort of fallout during application, which I love! I am SO buying more of these babies!! MAC pigments are nothing compared to Star Powders!
I LOVE this product - the texture is wonderful - nice greenish / bronzish tone- wonderful shimmer...I will definately buy this again.
best texture ever! goes on smooth and stays forever! can be natural looking and played up to be dramatic!
i have #929 the goldish brown color! i love it ..great for blue-green eyes
Star Powder is the best eye shadow I have ever purchased. The colour selection is amazing and for the price, you can't go wrong! The eyeshadow doesn't smudge or crease even if you wear it all day. The actual product seems to last a lifetime as well. Star Powder rocks!!
