Highly pigmented mineral eye shadow with a silky feel that resists creasing and blends with ease. All 100 eye shadow colors are formulated with only natural ingredients making them safe and extra gentle on skin. These versatile shadows can be applied with an eye liner brush to be worn as eye liner as well as applied with a dry or wet brush to create different looks.
Madison Street Beauty is a natural and vegan cosmetic line that offers 100 loose pigment eye shadow shades. This review is for the eye shadow in Nude Shimmer–a shimmering champagne color.
This loose eye shadow pigment comes in a clear, plastic jar with a twist-off cap and a sifter inside.
Nude Shimmer is a bronzed champagne color that is both universally wearable and versatile. The nude, neutral nature of this pigment will pair with any skin color and skin tone.
The pigment applies in a buttery-smooth layer on the skin, giving off great pigmentation and an opaque finish. The shimmery quality is refined and won’t produce any chunky surface or fall-out. If you apply this pigment in an intentionally sheer layer, you get a beautiful nude sparkle to the lids.
This pigment lasted on my lids for a whole six (6) hours before creasing when applied over bare skin. With primer applied underneath, there was still no creasing after a full 10 hours of wear.
Ease of Use: 10/10
As far as loose eye shadows go, Nude Shimmer is as easy to use as it gets. You have to take the time to pack it onto the brush and tap the brush before application (like you do with any loose shadow), but after that, you don’t have to worry about fall-out, layering, or extra blending. You can apply the pigment with a damp brush if you want an even more intense finish, apply it with a dry brush for a smooth and opaque layer of color, or use a dry fluffy brush for a sheer layer of shimmer.
For $4.99 you get 0.035 ounces (1 gram) of product. Per ounce, this actually works out to be more expensive than a MAC pigment and is about the same price per ounce as Maybelline’s Color Tattoo Pure Pigments.
