A Bronzy Golden :Make up store Micro Shadow in Bronze

My first product from Makeup store, that surprised me beyond my expectations.

Hey girls,

Make up store Micro Shadow in Bronze
This is going to be a review on my recent favourite item from Makeup Store, It is an eyeshadow that is from the line Microeyeshadows. The packaging is quite subtle and strong. The letter M engraved transparently, over the lid for the shadow color to peek through really catches attention.

Since it is a single eye shadow the idea of adding up a mirror or an applicator really seems a far cry.

Use it!!
This is one of the factory issued item I have got. So there wasn't a name or sticker to tell me what shade it is. I had to go through the website numerous times to compare it to online images and I narrowed it down to Microshadow Sunrise, Rusty and Bronze. Rusty  seemed a little more brown toned and Sunrise was a little too orange,so I finalised the shade as Bronze.

The shade is a variation of Golden with brown and orange undertones, a little like golden burnt orange. It looks like a very strong shade in the case but All these mix up to give a very subtle hue. It is not at all powdery, neither causes any fall out nor is it super soft where just dipping the brush in causes a dent.

It is golden frosty but not glittery or shimmery. What I liked most about this eye shadow is that it is not one of those which scatter glitter all over face when applied. The frost is completely infused within.

The pigmentation is mind blowing. Even a single dip in eye shadow gives amazing coverage. I have not used Mac shadows before but I have this one gives them a good competition.
It is perfect to be used as Over-the Crease shade as well as Lid color. I normally use it above crease where it blends amazingly with highlighter and the crease color below. Though I am not a fan of single eye shadows but shades like these which are multi functional really come in handy at time of need.
It is also described to be used as eye liner or even a blusher. Hmm Yup, This color particularly can be a replacement for a bronzer/ highlighter. Just tried it that way; It did pretty well.:)
Overall I loved this product.I am so wishing to get my hands on more of these.

  1. Hi!
    Just thought Id put in my 2 cents :)
    When it comes to the mirror and applicator - The Make Up Store does not spend much on packaging as all revenues go directly to the product itself and therefore they want to focus on quality of the product rather than packaging :)

    As for the usage - Make Up Store believes in the color concept - you don't have to lock yourself into thinking an eyeshadow is an eyeshadow. Many of my looks for example, I use Blushes and Eyeshadows and eyeshadows as blushes...I love love love the concept of being able to use whatever you want for whatever you need :)

    With that, hope I helped with confirming the right color for you! hugs xx

    1. Oh yes thank you so much for helping me with color decision.I couldnt have done it without you. With everything else top notch I would never mind not having an applicator or mirror . that was just a description note. Yup, you r right a multi functional product is always a plus. I loved it as bronzer.

  2. wao awesome n in the pics this eyeshadow is looking huge means bigger than mac eyeshadows if yes then its a great thing bcz u are getting more product from makeup store one's n plus u mentioned that the eyeshadow is pigmented so its a plus point too :)
    congratulations for having such an amazing product bcz agar money spend karnya ka baad stuff acha na ho tou i know it hurts
