Stars Makeup Haven Eyeshadows Review and Swatches

Hi ladies!
After watching Goss Makeup Artist's video, I decided to write a post about Stars Makeup Haven eyeshadows, since they are said to be dupes of Mac eyeshadows (refills)...
It's been a while since I purchsed these babies, but I hadn't had the chance to review them properly until now. So here's my review on them.

SMH e/s singles - Natural Light

SMH e/s singles - artificial light
Review: these eyeshadow singles come in a pan of 1.3 gr and cost 4£ each. MAC sell for £9.5 for 1.3-1.5g of product ( I think 12€ here in Italy). So what about the quality?
I've tried several of the shades available (they can be purchased online on Love-makeup) and I had noticed there were different finishes available, so I decided to try a few of them.

What I've noticed is that they blend really easily and have a really good overall pigmentation... However, some of them have really big fallouts issues! I'm referring to the "glittery" shades such as Happy Ending and Bondage, that I've found to be almost like pressed pigments! All the other shades I've bought are shimmer, except for Creme D'Nude (LOL like the Mac lipstick! :P) which is a matte nude/skin color and it's actually almost invisible on my skin!! I think it would be perfect for blending out dark colors and for smokey eyes...

Overall: I don't know if these eyeshadows can be compared to the Mac e/s refills because I don't have any... However, they are definitely worth trying! The color range is really wide, the overall pigmentation very good, just a few of them have these fallout issues I've mentioned and the price tag is very interesting! If you's like to see all the shades swatched here's the link to Karlasugar's blog. I think I'll purchase some other shades because I really like these eyeshadows!

That's all for now! I hope this post was useful! Have you already tried out SMH eyeshadows? Let me know!
Have a great weekend!
