Review: StarsMakeupHaven Eyeshadows

About 18 months ago I first heard of StarsMakeupHaven through Jangsara, who was using them. She was positively impressed by them so I decided to check them out. And bought first 5 and then another 14, after being equally impressed by them. So here’s my review


If you buy individual eye shadows from SMH, you will get them in plastic packaging like you see below in the picture. It’s very secure but also environmentally friendly compared to other companies that package their individual eye shadows in multiple layers (see MUFE eye shadows that are in plastic casing in a cardboard box). 5 out of 5

SMH offer over 60 shades & colors according to their website with different finishes ranging from matte to satin finish to sparkly/frosty ones. The pans are the same size as MAC pans (26mm), but are only $4.95USD. They fit in any palette that holds 26mm diameter pans. Unfortunately, they don’t come with magnets, so you have to get some yourself from a crafts store. Buying their eye shadows without (having) a palette it might be difficult to store them safely, as they don’t come in plastic casing individually like Ben Nye or MAC eye shadows. 4.5 out of 5

Tthe quality of the eye shadows is fantastic. You get a brilliant, vibrant color pay-off especially when you apply a eye shadow base first. Compared to other products, when you brush the product onto your brush, it doesnt crumble and go flaky, so it doesn’t cause any mess in your palette or on your face because you have no fallout. They blend smoothly as well. 5 out of 5

I would definitely recommend these e/s by StarsMakeupHaven. I’m very glad that I followed my instincts and bought what Jangsara is using. All of these e/s are so pigmented – there’s no hit & miss. If you are on a budget or just don’t feel that high prices for make-up are not justifyable, then these are great for your collection :-) 5 out of 5

What do you think? Have you got SMH e/s yourself or are you interested in buying some? Or maybe have you had negative experience with their products? Please let me know :-)

Much love,
