#TestedWithLove: Makeup With Rising Phoenix
I recently had the opportunity to try out products from Makeup With Rising Phoenix. This brand totally intrigued me with its creative collections and uniquely-colored eyeshadows.
Most of the eyeshadows that I tested out were from their Neverwinter Nights-inspired collection, Fire & Ice, which has great product names like Vigilante Rogue, Stealth Assassin, Hell-Bringer and Spellstorm Mage.
But beyond the creativity of the collections, I cannot say enough about the quality of the eyeshadows that I tested out. As I swatched them, I could not believe the instant color payoff of each and every shade!
There was literally not one shade that disappointed in the pigmentation department. Now I love to foil my metallic eyeshadow shades and it was a huge surprise to find that I did not have to add water to make these metallic colors pop and look glossy; in fact adding water didn’t really do much.
These colors are also perfect for those with a yellow or olive skin tone. While I think that these shades would look great on just about everybody, I noticed that these shadows on my (admittedly very pale) Filipino skin tone were magical. I can only imagine how gorgeous they would be on darker skin tones.
My two favorite things about these shadows are very little fallout and the blendability. These eyeshadows are so pigmented and a little goes a long way!
It can be hard to control colors this vibrant, if you’re not going for an out there party/artistic look. That being said, if you just lightly apply the product and blend, it actually ends up being a way more wearable wash of color on the eye, suitable for a fun everyday pop of color.
Overall, I loved this brand and would recommend them to anybody looking for some great colors to try out. This brand is also cruelty-free, vegan and they use all FDA-approved ingredients. Three total must haves of any great brand.
If you try out their products, be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can take a peek too.
