Good morning all!
I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while but I’ve been so busy using the eyeshadows and swatching them on my hand every day that writing about them just seemed too distracting.
If you haven’t heard of Phee’s Make Up Shop you have been completely ignoring almost every tweet and Instagram post we’ve put up in the last few months, take a look at these beauties!
First let’s introduce you to Phee, she’s a blogger herself who makes her own mineral make up. You can read a full bio on her About page but her make up is free of titanium dioxide (no flashback) and no talc so no powdery finish either. All they contain is Mica for a super shimmery finish and they’re cruelty free with free postage in the UK – WINNER.
For my first order I picked up three eyeshadows and three highlighters, all of these were in pan form.
From left to right the pans above are Polilla, Peppered and Sphinx.
I couldn’t resist picking up a few to try and ever since I have had my eyes on the rest of her collection – and I mean I wish there were more. So many more!
Let’s talk about them one by one, Polilla:
I’m not sure I have ever used any eyeshadow that is so pigmented. These are such good quality and the colours are beautiful. The swatches in this post are just one swipe on the pan and swatched directly onto my hand – they’re so pigmented it’s kind of hard to believe.
Polilla is described as a warm toned dark brown with turquoise duo chrome. The brown gives it some body but the turquoise reflect is stunning.
The photo below shows the eyeshadow put on dry with a brush, however since then I’ve found that using a wet brush brings out the colour so much more! I absolutely adore it and it has fast become a favourite in my every day make up.
The second one is Sphinx, a foiled copper eyeshadow.
I can’t say that I’ve been a fan of coppery toned eyeshadows, in fact I didn’t venture much from boring basics. But I decided to embrace them recently after seeing so many pictures of beautiful looks, and this one did not disappoint.
Again, it’s super pigmented and I have just applied it all over my eyelid, it’s a gorgeous colour and perfect for Autumn. I’ve been wearing this one non stop too, especially along my lower lashline during the day for a flash of colour for work when I normally wear matte shadows.
Lastly we have Peppered. This is also a permanent choice in my every day make up now, I use it EVERY DAY and I love it.
Peppered is a foil taupe with a gold reflect running through it, this means it is super flattering on my skin tone and it’s the easiest shade to just brush on in the morning and go….and with lots of liner it’s a great one for the evenings too:
I really do adore all of these eyeshadows, and as soon as I can I plan on purchasing Citrine (I reeeeeeeeeally badly want this one!) and I am keeping all my fingers crossed that Iris is coming back into stock too. There are many more shades that I can only dream Phee makes soon, the quality really is amazing and I’m so in awe that she makes them herself. I wouldn’t have the smallest clue how to start making my own eyeshadows let alone make enough to start my own business! Definitely #goals right?!
So in short, for £6.50 per pan I would 100% recommend these eyeshadows, and I’ll be fighting anyone on my next pay day so I can pick up a few more! The highlighters are great too, there will be a separate post on those soon.
Have you heard of Phee before? Have you tried any make up from her shop?
Her Instagram is amazing and full of so many make up looks using her own products. Her highlighters are the shizz and I can’t wait to share these with you next!
