iBeauty Cosmetics Eyeshadows Review // BEAUTY

ibeauty3

If something is a bargain, I will definitely take advantage of it. I also have no self control, which definitely explains why my bank account so often looks so sad. I recently came across iBeauty Cosmetics, a small Australian company who sell individual eyeshadow pans and eyeliners.

I had heard some great reviews about their eyeshadows and wanted to purchase some colours that weren’t just neutrals (it scared me, I know, but I did it). At the time of purchase, an empty 12-pan eyeshadow palette was $3 (so cheap!!) and each eyeshadow pan was also $3 (SO CHEAP). The low price did have me a bit worried about the quality of the shadows, but for $39 for a full palette, I was willing to take the risk (especially when I’d heard predominantly good things about the company and their products!).

The palette arrived super quickly, within three days. It was packaged very securely, with each individual eyeshadow in it’s own packaging, and the empty palette in bubble wrap. It also came with a little mini sample of two extra shades.

I purchased 12 shades: fairy floss, allure, dusk, mercury, beg borrow steel, vintage, swept away, blushing, spoken for, hot chocolate, bruised ego and moon dust

The eyeshadows are quite nice! I wouldn’t say that they’re the best I’ve used, but for $3 a pop I’m definitely not complaining! They are buttery and pigmented (although I did find that Swept Away was SUPER pigmented and this created quite a lot of fallout), and when I wore them with my Lorac eye primer they lasted quite well. They blended well and weren’t at all chalky.

The only gripe I have is the packaging. It looks a little cheap with the light plastic it’s made of – but to be fair, it IS cheap. It doesn’t affect the product in the slightest, and for $3, I’m sure I’ll survive.

As I said, they weren’t the best shadows I’ve ever used. But were they good? Definitely! I’d actually go as far to say that they’re great for the price, size and quality of the product. I would definitely purchase more ibeauty shadows, even just to buy some more ‘out there’ colours that I wouldn’t use every day.
