Hi Everyone, 🙂
I am reviewing the most amazing discovery of 2016 today – MUFE Star Powders. If you are a makeup artist or especially an eye makeup addict – these are the game changers. I have used various eye makeup products in the past few years, but there is nothing like the Make up For Ever star powders. I am reviewing 9 shades for you all in this post, but there are 35 shades available in this range. I seriously want to have them in all colors. 😛
USD 20/INR 1300/- approximately.
The Star Powder is a silky powder that catches the light and gives the skin an intense sparkle and unparalleled shine.
My Take on Make Up For Ever Star Powders:
Make up For Ever defines its star powders as ” The Star Powder is a silky powder that catches the light and gives the skin an intense sparkle and unparalleled shine.”
These are super pigmented, silky powders. They feel satiny silky on the skin and they totally amp up any makeup look with their touch. Earlier, I thought that they are similar to MAC pigments, but these are different texture. They are silky, smooth, have a satiny finish, and are thinner than the regular pigments. They are very finely milled powders. I use them all the time with a damp brush and just pat them on my lid. I damp my brush with MUFE Mist and Fix Spray and just press them on my lid. They stay on all day/night long and without budging or creasing.
You only need a tiny bit of these to work with. These are such versatile powders that you can mix them in your clear nail paint to make your own nail colors, you can create your own eyeliners, you can use the champagne star powder as a highlighter, you can even add a bit of champagne or gold star powder in your foundation to create a custom blend. You think of it and you can do magic with this product!
The following are the nine shades that I have in my collection.
Swatches : top l-r 974, 958, 956, 954
bottom l-r 969, 922, 946, 905, 957
974 Taupe: It’s a pure taupe star powder with gold micro shimmers. It can amp up just any neutral eye makeup look. You can use it as an overall wash of color or just on the centre of the lid. The shimmers are quite subtle, so you can use it both during day or evening.
958 Green Apple with Gold Highlights: It is a chartreuse green star powder with golden micro shimmers. It is a very bright pop green color. You can use it in combination with other colors or just as an inner corner highlight the way I have used it HERE.
956 Turquoise Gold: True to its name, it is a gorgeous turquoise gold color with golden sheen to it. This also can be used all over, in combination with other colors or as an inner corner pop – the way I have used it HERE. I have used this star powder HERE also.
954 Purple: It is a grape purple star powder with fuchsia pigment. A gorgeous bright purple that would not make your eyes look bruised. 😛
969 Diamond Pink with Golden Highlights: This is a star powder from their diamond collection. It is a beautiful pink star powder with gold sparkles. It is a true Indian bridal makeup must-have color. And if you are someone who does not like a bright color on eyes but just a soft hint of color with a little twinkle, then definitely give this a go! The diamond powders are meant to twinkle when light catches them 🙂
922 Gold Copper: I have already reviewed this one in detail HERE.
964 Champagne: True to its name, it is a beautiful multi-tasking star powder with white micro shimmers. You can use this one on eyes as an eyeshadow, as a highlighter for face, or can even mix it a little in your foundation for that glow. I get the most use out of this one among all the star powders. I have used it HERE and HERE.
905 Blue: A bright sky blue color with blue shimmers. I have used this my Diwali makeup look HERE.
957 Saffron with Green Highlights: It is a khaki duochrome star powder with green iridescent pearls. To me, it is a dry henna color. If you are a fan of khaki color, this is definitely the one to look for. 🙂
The only con with these star powders is the packaging, but that’s the case with all loose pigments and powders – they make a mess and fly all over the place. It also leads to the product wastage. If you are a novice in makeup, I would not really recommend these to you, but these are true pro makeup products. Every makeup artist or a makeup enthusiast should have these star powders in their kit. You would have a ton of fun playing with them. 🙂
