[Review] The Face Shop Marvel Single Eye Shadow in Hero Red and Ultra Silver

The Face Shop Marvel Single Eye Shadow in Hero Red and Ultra Silver Review:

I doubt this product need a big introduction but I’ll do my best! I’m a geek, and I love makeup, so one plus one equals me buying this! I got the single eye shadows rather than eye shadow palette simply because these ones are Jelly shadows (which is something different for The Face Shop) and because I have too many eye shadows already. So I got two as “representatives” to feed my interest!

I chose red and silver because they were the most different. They also have some bronze peach color, and a brown color, all jelly glittery eye shadows.

Claims:

A shadow to give a deep metal coating to your eyelids.

Sugar coating: Soft, gentle texture, that gives a strong color as soon as it touches the eyelid.

Metal type: A type of metallic shine like a liquid eye shadow, that you couldn’t see before in a pressed shadow.

Jelly color: Like a bright jelly, it gives a strong lively color to your eyelid.

Ingredients:

Red (RD01):

Mica (Ci 77019), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Disostearyl Malate, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Nylon-12, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Red 7 (Ci 15850:1), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Polypropene,  Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, 1,2-hexanediol, Glyceryl Caprylate, Tin Oxide, Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Carmine (Ci 75470)

The first thing I want you to know is: the photos on the official website all have an eye primer, and on the silver eye shadow they also have a base matte shadow. You’ll see later when I show you my photos why it’s so easy to know that they have a primer and base.

The moment you open it you can’t return it to the store – so it’s both an exciting and terrifying moment. What if you don’t like it? But then again, if you love it everything is safe!

On the back you have the traditional “peel for more information” sticker which, for once, actually has useful information. In this case it has an ingredient list in English. It doesn’t even have it in Korean!

The design is simple, as you can see, and the colors look beautiful. Bright as they said, but discreet enough for daily makeup.

Here I’m showing you a small fascinating detail: the top of the lid is completely flat! It’s not like a normal box where it goes slightly in, it’s just flat.

This is a swatch of two layers of shadow for each color. You can’t see it in the photo (I tried to take a better one, I swear) but the silver eye shadow has a little bit of pink-ish glitter, the same color as the red eye shadow but very washed out and discreet. Unicorn silver ultron!

As they did in the website, I applied it directly on my eyelid. Or as I thought they did. Although the red eye shadow looks the same as in the website, the silver one shows now on my eyelid that it doesn’t have any base color.

What I mean is, the red eye shadow is like a satin red eye shadow with transparent and gold glitter. The silver eye shadow, however, is just a lot of white, silver, pink glitter, no base color whatsoever. So I conclude that on the official photos they used a base color (an almost white nude).

If you have darker skin and are interested in sporting the look from the official photos just choose a base color that’s around 2 to 3 shades lighter than your natural nude color.

You can also see that, for oily eyelids, a jelly eye shadow is as bad as a matte one. It settles. The glitter on the crease, and the base satin washes off from the crease.

Here I tried to use the two eye shadows together, to see how they look and settle.

I have to say I am impressed with using the silver as a base, and applying the red on top. The color and shine look like a morning dew petal. The red one with white highlights are “normal”. However, since this was the sequence of the previous photo I still had no primer nor base color, and the eye shadows still settled as I mentioned before.

I bet some of you thought “If you knew you had an oily eyelid and that jelly colors settle then why did you buy this shadow to begin with??” and I have  a good answer for that!

These jelly shadows (think of them as a satin shadow) blend amazingly. So with a primed eye they blend naturally while keeping the intensity of the color.

For this look I first used the no sebum powder, then a nude matte shadow all over my eyelid, and a darker nude (a taupe almost) on the outside corner triangle of my eye so that they would look a little deeper. Then I finally applied these eye shadows.

The red is self explanatory, with a brush (would be brighter with a sponge tip brush or with my finger) and the silver color on the inside corner of my eye, and the leftovers on the brush I spread them a little all over the eyelid (because the red has golden glitter, so to unify them a little).

I didn’t apply mascara, because of the photo, but with mascara I would use this on a normal day. Yes, most people don’t use such a bright color on their eyes, but these colors can be thinned out a lot, you just need to skip the layering. And you can also use it as a lower eyelid color, pretty cool if I might add.

Then again, the other two colors are very normal so there’s no need to worry at all, and you can already see the intensity through this red color.

The colors last, on my oily eyelid, only as much as my primer allows them to. So, if I use just a sebum primer rather than a real primer they last for the morning, and I’m touching them up a little before lunch time.

Honestly, I’m disappointed with the silver one, since I thought it would also have a base color (like the satin in the red eye shadow) so I regret buying it, but since glitter is glitter there’s always a good use for it.

The red color, I love it! If they had other colors (I mean real colors, not normal orange and normal brown) I would probably get my hands on those too.
