Mikyajy 22k Magnetizing Illuminating Eye Shadow – Burnished Copper Review

Hello Ladies,

Today, I will be reviewing Mikyajy 22K Magnetizing Illuminating Eye Shadow- 17 Burnished Copper.

Mikyajy 22k Magnetizing Illuminating Eye Shadow Burnished Copper Review

If you have ever been to Middle East countries, you will know “Mikyajy.”  Since I have not found a single post on this brand on IMBB (even though Emirati blog has loads of reviews on the brand), I decided to be the honorary first :P  Mikyajy means ” My Makeup” in Arabic. It is very popular in Saudi Arabia and Dubai.  The counters are setup in every mall.  They sell everything from makeup to bath and body care to fragrances. I am in love with their products.

Copper Eyeshadow 1

About The Product:

Long-lasting baked eye shadows with a marbellized finish. Ihis can be applied with a dampened brush for intense color or dry for a more natural finish.

My Experience with Mikyajy 22k Magnetizing Illuminating Eye Shadow – Burnished Copper:

This eye shadow comes in a beautiful bright golden colored (which has faded over time) flip top container which is connected to all of their 22k line products.  It is very small, very travel friendly, but it is not the lightest item to carry around. It weighs heavy which may be due to the metal packaging.

It even has a tiny mirror provided inside so you can do touch ups on the go. Its very secure and you don’t have to worry about it spilling in your purse. This is my all-time favorite and most-used eye shadow. I absolutely adore this color. It goes with all and any of my dresses, whether they be western or traditional wear and looks completely natural. I use this on weddings and on an everyday basis. I love it so much.

Copper Eyeshadow 4

The quantity is about 5 gm which is a lot for eye shadows, especially if it is super pigmented like this, you need very little. I have been using it for more than a year and it has barely reduced.  The quality is very good. It is very fine and very pigmented, perfect for blending or wearing alone. No fall out ever and no smudging ever. Staying power is very good, about 4-5 hours without primer with very light fading and 8 hours plus with primer.

Copper Eyeshadow 6

Since it is of travel size, an applicator is not provided, but if needed, it applies flawlessly with fingers too, but I wouldn’t recommend it due to spreading of bacteria; I don’t mind doing it so much because I am the only user.  I would definitely recommend you all to check out Mikyajy if you ever visit the Middle East.
