I recently purchased from Etsy a setting powder for makeup and two eye shadows from Feather River Body. The shipping was super fast and there is a discount code in the company description for first time buyers.
The setting powder is suppose to be high definition. The store describes it as …
“Our invisible setting powder sets your foundation beautifully without adding any color. Packed full of skin loving ingredients like silk, pearls and allatoin to help soothe and restore your skin. Silica helps to blur your pores so you have the airbrushes / photo shopped look in person!
Our setting powders come in a 30 gram sifter jar filled to the brim with product.
Silica, Silk Powder, Pearl Powder and Allatoin.”
I agree it is super soft and melts away to nothing on the skin but sets your makeup. I do not find a white cast with this powder at all.
The powder is on the left and blended on the right.
It cost 12.00 and was in fact filled to the brim with an easy to use sifter.
The two eyeshadows I chose were Taffy and Queen of Hearts and are listed as pressed pigments. I agree they are very pigmented yet smooth.
The site states…
“These eye shadows work BEST when used over a primer and when applied with either your finger or a wet brush. This is not to say they don’t work great with a dry brush because they do, they just will be more vibrant if you apply them with a wet brush or your finger.
This eye shadow is sold pressed in a 26mm pan which holds approximately 1.8 grams of product. These are sold individually so they can easily be placed into a z palette for easy palette customization.”
It also warns that they are made of oil so may be a problem for oily lids. I thought that was great and honest reporting.
These are sold for 6.00 a piece.
Queen of Hearts is on the top and listed as a red with a hint of burgundy. Taffy is on the bottom and is described as peach. I found it to be more of a cotton candy color. I let the owner know and she said she would correct the website. I have looked for it just now and it is not listed so she might be doing just that. She also asked if I wanted to return the product for a refund. I told her the shadow is still creamy and beautiful and I would rather keep it.
Here is the colors on the eyes with MAC’s soft brown in the crease. The right side is with Urban Decay Primer potion and the left is with NYX white primer. They worked better over the Urban Decay in my opinion but it could have been the primer not the shadows.
All in all what do you think? When I am in the market for some new shades of eyeshadow or setting powder I will use this indie brand again.
