As you probably know I love eyeshadows. Eyeshadows got me hooked to makeup. I used to be horrible at application. Countless Youtube tutorials later I am a little better at doing it :) As I am now more knowledgable about the whole process I also know better what to look out for when buying eyeshadows. I prefer mine to be of nearly cream like consistency as they go on like you wouldn’t believe and are best for blending. I love my eyeshadows to be well pigmented with a little to none fallout.

I choose 1 matte finish Brights 226 which is a brilliant true Pink. Gorgeous shade and great pigmentation. Brights 228 which is a lovely satin Purple shade. It will work well to bring out green/grey eyes :) Lovely and intense colour, blends as a dream like all of them. Brights 227 is a beautiful sparkly Lilac. There’s no harsh glitter there. It shines through which is a beautiful combination. i love the formula and can’t wait to have a proper play with it.

Formula of all of them is lovely. They all feel really soft when swatched. In the swatches I only just touched them lightly. One swipe. So as you can see they are all intensely pigmented. They are a pleasure to work with. They don’t dissapear when blending.
Packaging is very plastic but by doing so the brand offers you a great quality for £1 per shade instead of £15 plus. I would be tempted to depot them in to a z palette or something similar. I would much prefer them to come without packaging but in so form as to put them in to magnetic palettes straight away. If only I could suggest it to Freedom :) Especially for a pro artist, who just can’t afford the hassle of having hundreds of these around in his/hers makeup bag.
The only little complaint I have is a lack of names for each shade. I like that they’re numbered but I would personally like to have a name associated with each shade :)
Altogether I love, love, love them. I only chose a limited amount in the beginning but I am looking forward to expanding my collection in the future. Matte shades are something I will be intrigued to test some more.
So what’s your opinion, yay or nay? I’ll give them a 4 out of 5* with a star missing for packaging as I would much prefer to see them in depot friendly option :)
