That I’m a single eyeshadow collector doesn’t come to a surprise with all the recent posts on swatches and comparisons (here and here). So when an indie brand that sells single eyeshadow pans got onto my radar, it was just a matter of time before I placed an order. I found out about Devinah Cosmetics at the end of last year thanks to the lovely girls of Beguiles and Dolls on Instagram, and purchased my first highlighters from them during the Black Friday sale (here). I was trying to be strong and not buy any more eyeshadows, but I finally caved during a recent restock and here are some Devinah Cosmetics eyeshadow swatches.
Devinah Cosmetics is an indie brand run by Deandra and her husband who develop and hand make each and every product that comes from their shop. They offer more than 70 different eyeshadow shades, both matte and shimmer, in different pan sizes (26 mm, 37 mm, 44 mm, 57 mm) as well as over 45 highlighters.
I have now ordered twice from Devinah Cosmetics and they have been very quick with processing and shipping my order within a couple of working days, but in busy times they say the processing time can be up to 5-7 business day. It is very common for these small companies and just something to keep in mind before you start worrying about your order. Shipping is $6-10 in the US depending on the size of your package (palettes will fall in the highest category), and they do ship internationally.
With all this information out of the way, let’s get into the Devinah Cosmetics eyeshadow swatches.
First of all I had to pick up some of the amazing warm tones and reds Deandra offers.
- Voodoo is a dark brown shimmer with warm gold and copper fine glitter. I was really missing a shade like this for a classic brown smokey eye.
- Fierce is a duochrome shade with a dark brown base and a fierce copper shimmer shift. This is truly a stunning shade, very foiled and pigmented. It is all that I wanted Nabla Ludwig to be (but that wasn’t pigmented at all).
- Blazed is a warm shimmery red, which is a dupe for that wonderful red shade in the Kat von D x Too Faced collaboration palette (check out Mimera’s swatch here). This was just a must have for me and can’t wait to create some looks with it.
- Ilithia is a matte raspberry red, which is incredibly hard to photograph. In person it has more of a pink undertone than orange, and with its medium level, it is definitely gorgeous.
- Lucretia is a stunning matte warm orangey brown, perfect for transition and crease work. It is the color of bricks.
Then for a few unusual shades to integrate my collection. And that’s what I love about Devinah Cosmetics, that they have so many shades from classic neutrals to these unusual mattes.
- Envy is a matte medium green, with a slight teal undertone. I have fallen again in the spiral of Ï don’t own enough green eyeshadow” with this shade, but it definitely is a unique shade in my collection.
- Naval is a dark matte blue that is however still distinctly blue and not blackened.
- Vixen is a bright lavender matte that is ridiculously highly pigmented. This really impressed me for the quality.
- Shack is a pink and purple duochrome with a light blue shift. It is absolutely stunning.
So here was my haul of Devinah Cosmetics eyeshadows and some first impressions and swatches. Overall I am really impressed with the quality of all the shadoews, both shimmers and mattes. I have used them a couple of times (check my Instagram stories to see them in action) and I already want to buy more (dang it).
These eyeshadows retail starting at $5 for 26 mm pans (regular MAC and Makeup Geek size) and you can get 20% off using affiliate codes (DOLLS20 will support my friends at Beguiles and Dolls). So they are a great value and cheaper than most of their competitors and with great quality.
You can buy Devinah Cosmetics on their website devinah.com.
