The whole baked cosmetics craze has gotten to me and so does not being able to willingly afford MAC Mineralized Blush and Eyeshadows. I spotted Jesse's Girl Baked Eyeshadows at The Makeup Mix Shop and ultimately picked up Evergeen and Volcanic after reading Vanessa's review. That should help hold the cravings for a while.
Read on for the review and swatches.
The first thing that I noticed about these baked eyeshadows was the size. They're HUGE as in quite impossible to finish using. Next was the shimmery-ness of the eyeshadow which made me weary at first that my eyes might be mistaken as disco balls.
Fortunately, on skin, the shadow gives a smooth coloring with just enough sparkle. True to Vanessa's review, these shadows are incredibly pigmented and they pack on well. All in all, good quality eyeshadows.
Evergreen is a fresh teal green with gold shimmers. I got complimented the first time I wore it but then I realized, I have too many green eyeshadows that looks just like this one and with the vast amount of eyeshadows that I have to alternate, it'll literally take me decades to finish using it. This means that I'll be adding it to my Garage Sales soon in hope that it'll go to better hands.
I bought Volcanic to be used as a blush. Ya'll know I can't pull off pink eyeshadows. As a blush, it gives a very sweet plum shade and the glitter gives the cheeks a pretty glow.
In this picture, I've used both of the eyeshadows for my look. Evergreen on the eyes and Volcanic on the cheeks.
Now on to the downside, the entire line of baked eyeshadows only has 4 colors. FOUR! Even foundations have more shades than that! I really wish they'd make more colors and come up with baked blush as well.
Jesse's Girl Baked Eyeshadows are available from The Makeup Mix Shop for $4.99USD.
