Hi Guys, I recently bought some eyeshadows from a company called Manhattan. It’s a drugstore brand but I honestly think it’s comparable to NYX Cosmetics. They sell a lot of nice eyeshadows, eyeliners, mascaras, foundation etc., you can buy this brand online and in drugstores. I paid around 7$ for the palette and 3$ for the single eyeshadow.
I love green and blue-colored eyeshadows. I had to buy the Manhattan Palette and the single eyeshadow. As you can see, they are satin finish. I have to admit that the colors in the palette are not as pigmented as I wished. Nevertheless, the colors are so beautiful. The single eyeshadow in Modern Green is amazingly pigmented though. All shadows feel very creamy and soft. I did not notice any fallout. They both come with tiny sponge applicators that helps the color to appear more vibrant.
Swatches from the Manhattan Palette in Safari Effects
They look kind of sheer, but still very pretty. The darkest color is the most pigmented one. It’s a dark olive green. The color in the middle looks greenish with a hint of bronze. The last color looks like a yellow lime. All colors have golden shimmers in it.
This Manhattan Single Eyeshadow in Modern Green is a beautiful green with a blue hint. This shadow though has silver shimmers in it.
Pros of the Manhattan Palette:
- Beautiful colors.
- Comes with an applicator.
- Very sturdy packaging.
- Easy to blend.
Cons of the Manhattan Palette:
- The sizes of the shadows are long.
- I have a hard time trying to pick up some shadow with a brush.
- Appear a little bit sheer.
- No matte eyeshadow in this palette.
Pros of the Manhattan Single Eyeshadow:
- Very sturdy packaging.
- Amazing pigmentation.
- Pretty color.
- Price is good.
- You get a lot of product.
- Easy to blend.
- Comparable to high-end brands.
Cons of the Manhattan Single Eyeshadow:
- Hard to find.
Last Word on Manhattan Single Eyeshadow and Safari Effect Palette:
Love this brand very much. I wouldn’t recommend the palette but the single eyeshadows they have are amazing. I always like to use a shimmery eyeshadow on my lid and a matte color on my crease or the opposite, a matte shadow on my lid and a shimmery shadow on my crease. Since the palette has only shimmery colors, I wouldn’t use all of them to create a smokey eye.
