Beauty ¦ The Makeup collection - Powder eyeshadows

So I thought it was about time that I updated my makeup collection. This time I've decided that I'm going to be super in depth and I'm going to spread my collection out over 7 days. I just want to add a little disclaimer that I am in no way shape or form bragging I love makeup collection posts and videos and I wish that more people did super in depth ones. If you would like to know my opinions on any of the products in this post let me know in the comments and I can either link you to my review or give you a quick opinion in the comments.
If you missed them Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 are here

So once again I keep these in my Malm dresser in stodja cutlery trays from Ikea. Today I thought I'd just show you my powder shadows and then I'm going to be showing you my cream shadows and all my other eye products tomorrow.

So I literally just picked out six shadows at a time to show you. First off I have the Rebel young baked eyeshadow in Fairy cake which is stunning and metallic I just wish that I could pick them up in the UK. L'oreal's Colour riche shadows are stunning I reach for them on a regular basis as they are incredibly pigmented and super blendable. Café saint Germain is definitely one of my favourite shades out of all my single shadows. MUA shadows are brilliant quality for the price however I never reach for this particular shade (25) as it's a little to pink and I find I have to work really hard to
make it look nice.
Urban Decay's moondust shadow in cosmic is something I love to use when I want a little more sparkle on my eyes. It's basically just lots of different coloured glitters suspended in a slightly white base. The 17 eye pot in statuesque was something I used to reach for all the time however recently it has definitely been pushed to the back of my stash. Finally for this six I have the 2 true duo eyeshadow which is a really stunning little duo and a complete bargain at only £1.99.

In this set I have another of the L'oreal shadows in sable lame, another MUA shadow in 24 and another of the 2true duos. I also have a Jemma kidd glitter which I picked up from a discount store and I used it for prom. An Essence shadow in the shade metropolitan which I just a basic shimmery chocolate brown and then a Catrice single shadow in Oops nude did it again which is perfect for highlighting and as a very subtle base.

The Revlon colourstay shadow links are something I have mixed feelings on. The matte one I own is a stunning shade however I've found that the shimmery ones lack a little in pigment at £2.99 I'd definitely recommend the matte shades. The Essence pigment is something that I never ever reach for and in all honesty I'm not sure I've ever used it's incredibly pretty but far to much hassle for me. I don't tend to buy trios or quads at all however two of these where gifts and one came free in a set. The Bourjois trio has three stunning shades in it however it lacks a little in terms of pigment. The Essence quad creates a beautiful smokey eye however it isn't something I reach for often as quite frankly smokey eyes terrify me. Finally I have one of the Body shop shimmer cubes which I love when used wet however due to that being a bit of a pain it's only something I reach for when I have loads of time to do my makeup.

Finally for powder shadows I have 7 of the Makeup revolution shadows which are incredible for the price. I would definitely say that I prefer these to the MUA ones I also find that the packaging more practical and less prone to breaking and the pigment and blendability are a little better.
So that's it for today's makeup collection post, I hope you enjoyed.
