Hey guys! Today I thought I'd share my thoughts about these single eyeshadows from Props Tools and Cosmetics which I bought over a couple of weeks ago. I have been wanting to try their single eyeshadows for ages but it took me quite a while to finally place an order since I haven't really seen swatches or read any reviews about their products ― specifically their eyeshadows.
AVAILABILITY: Props Tools and Cosmetics
PRICE: Php 130.00 (matte eyeshadow) / Php 100.00 (shimmer/satin eyeshadow)
DEAL: Get free 12-pan magnetic palette and save Php 350.00 when you buy 12 eyeshadows.
Props Tools and Cosmetics' single eyeshadows comes in a pan form that is protected by a transparent, plastic casing. Behind each plastic casing there is a sticker label with the names of each eyeshadow on them. The pans are made of metal, so they stick to magnetic palettes. Since I purchased a total of 24 eyeshadows I did receive two of their 12-pan magnetic palette. The quality of their palette is great and feels very sturdy but I've decided to just put them all in my Z Palette to save more space.
The shimmer/satin shadows in my opinion have better pigmentation compared to the matte ones. Some of the matte eyeshadows are great while some are just a total let down especially the lighter shades. As for the texture, it's kind of a hit and miss ― some are smooth, some are a bit chalky. They are not buttery soft like the other eyshadows that I own but nonetheless they all still blend beautifully. I highly recommend applying an eyeshadow primer underneath to make the application and blending a lot smoother and also to lessen the fall-outs and make the color really pop.
Here are the swatches of all the eyeshadows that I have. Bear in mind that all swatches are done heavily (3-4 swipes) with no primers underneath:
nude matte / acorn matte / light brown / dark brown / sand castle matte
nude beach matte / amaretto matte / hibiscus matte / rainbow peach / deep apricot
coral peach / seashell pink matte / pink diamond / raspberry sorbet / fuschia rose
lilac matte / mauve plum matte / mardi gras / indigo / twilight
midnight matte / emerald green / counterfeit / graphite
Overall, despite being a little disappointed with some of the matte eyeshadows (fuchsia rose, raspberry sorbet, mardi gras, indigo) I still can say that these eyeshadows are still worth every single centavo. If you're planning to get some of their eyeshadows I highly recommend that you opt for the shimmer and darker colors as they have better quality compared to the lighter ones.
I believe they will be releasing an all-matte neutral palette in collaboration with Pinay YouTube beauty guru Shebby real soon. Will keep you guys posted once it's been released.
