Indeed! Check out the largest range of eyeshadows from MAKE UP FOR EVER, ARTIST SHADOW.
Too much of eyeshadows? Never. As a fellow beauty junkie, you’d agree with me. In Indonesia, they carry 175 shades out of the original 210 that Dany Sanz created to sort of celebrate Make Up For Ever 30th anniversary. Originally created by Dany in 1984, the first Artist Shadow range consists of 100 shades. Went up to 125 in 2013 and this year, 210. Keep in mind that Indonesia only carry 175 shades.
With 5 finishes: matte, satiny, iridescent, metallic and diamond, I am spoilt by choices. Oh dear, picking up shades and textures are just too hard for a girl! Then, another choice to be made, the palette. They have three choices, single palette, duo palette and trio palette at the same price (Rp 70.000 each). So, my suggestion, go for the trio ones. Oh by the way, the Artist Shadow costs Rp 220.000 each.
After going back and forth to the display at their flagship store in Plaza Indonesia, Jakarta, I decided to fill my trio palette.
As you can see my numbers of choices are: M518 (Nude), S814 (Light Rosewood) and M626 (Neutral Brown). Yup, I decided to go for their matte and satiny textures out of 5 textures available and went neutral. No doubt about the intensity of their colour pigments and their textures are just heavenly smooth like velvet when applied.
Swatched on the back of my hand without primer and with one, can you spot the difference?
Not much of a difference in the intensity of the shades, right? The first swatch photo is the one without primer, and the last swatch photo is with primer. Usually my eyeshadows shades will pop out more if I use eye primer, but Artist Shadow doesn’t need primer (well, if you want to make it stay longer, I still recommend to apply eye primer).
It was fun to create this trio palette of Artist Shadow, although I admit it was darn hard to pick just three out of 175. I’m proud of my choices, very me and so wearable for everyday staples. I was thinking to use the middle shades on my palette (the rosewood ones) as a blush too. Check out the look harmonized on my face for a lazy Saturday. I love how matte they looked, and I did wear the rosewood shade as a blush.
