If there’s one thing I love, it’s falling in love. After several weeks of trying out their products I am tickled pink by MustaeV. I am head over heels for their eyeshadows. As mentioned before (here) the collection is made up of 61 gorgeous shades with three different finishes: pearl, matte and glitter.
So far, I have tried eight different shadows and each one is simply perfection. The sleek black packaging contains 1.8 g and retails for $13.00.
Below is a closer look of each eyeshadow. -[ Images were pulled from the MustaeV website.]
1. Pink Bikini – Matte Finish, a cool toned paradise pink.
2. Dazzle Pink – Pearl Finish, a light pink base with golden iridescence.
3. Scales – Pearl Finish eyeshadow that has a white base with a golden iridescence. This eyeshadow in real life pulls more towards a white base and not yellow as pictured below. I think this eyeshadow could be used as a beautiful highlighter on fair skin tones but would pull too ashy on warmer skin tones.
4. Lovable – Pearl Finish – A gorgeous cool toned pink with white and pink iridescent shimmers. I found lovable swatched almost identically to Lilac, however you can see the shadows vibrancy when you use Mac Fix +
5. Lilac – Glittery Finish, a pale violet with silver micro-shimmer.
If there’s one thing to expect from MustaeV eyeshadows, is that each shadow is rich and buttery. These shadows are not only pigmented but easy to blend. I would compare the Pearl shadows to the shimmery shadows found in the Lorac Pro Palette.
Overall, the quality is unquestionable. MustaeV is a pro makeup brand in Korea and their eyeshadows have become strong contenders in my makeup collection. After recently experiencing what people call the horrid “creasing” I’ve learned the importance of finding makeup that not only looks beautiful but also wears gracefully. As with any eyeshadow, I would recommend using these with a primer.
Above is a swatch of the following: (From top to bottom) Scales, Dazzle Pink, Pink Bikini, Lovable and Lilac
The swatches pictured above are the shadows used dry. I’ll do a future post using the shadows along with other MustaeV goodies. I’m sure after you see everything you’ll understand why MustaeV has me tickled pink.
So stay tuned for Part 2.
