Face Candy Couture eyeshadows! Review!

  Its been a couple of months since I ordered and received these eyeshadows, and still haven't reviewed them, mostly because it didn't happen to wear them, so that I have a complete opinion about them. But yesterday, I tried them on and decided to make a post, featuring Face Candy Couture.
  Face Candy Couture is an online store where you can get many unique, natural eyeshadows that combine great quality and the most important: they are affordable as hell. Most of their eyeshadows, which you can check *here* cost about $5, and you can also take advantage of some good deals: 3 for $10, 8 for $20 and so on. FCC and Shantle Shipp are also kind enough to let you try their products: they are offering 5 (!) free sample eyeshadows. All you have to do is send an email and let her know you are interested. You can do that *here* . When I decided to ask for some samples, I could choose which eyeshadows they would send me. But as I see on their website now, they will send you some products of their choice, which is fine, as the eyeshadows are really stunning! The package arrived quickly and Shantle was sweet to communicate and polite.
  So, I ordered 5 eyeshadows: Damask Grey, Fall, Chill, Pinecone, Seed.
Damask Grey is a grey/silver eyeshadow, shimmery and shiny. It's really pigmented and I don't think there is a big fallout. I didn't have the chance to have it on my eyes for many hours, but the eyeshadow seems steady. [FCC says it's "a sexy grey with silver shimmer"].

Fall has a really interesting color: brown, with dark purple and copper undertones. This is what it looks like to me. Again, shiny and pigmented! [FCC described it as "brown with deep burgundy and copper undertones"].


Chill seems to me a very dark blue with some brown undertones, shimmery and pigmented enough. I really liked this one, as I enjoy it when I can't explain what the exact color is. [FCC described it as a "midnight sea with shimmer".]

Pinecone is a simple brown (ha! that was easy :P) color with a bit of shimmer inside. Out of these 5 eyeshadows, I think it's the only one that wasn't that pigmented. Maybe I just didn't work with it very well, so I have to give it another shot. [FCC says it's "a perfect brown coco pinecone color"].

Last but not least, Seed is a bright yellow, with mustard/gold/orange undertones. Extremely shiny and pigmented, perfect for summer and intense nights or days out. This colour seems to have consumed the whole sun! [FCC says it's "mustard yellowish color with an orange undertone"]. 


And this is how all of them look like: (from the left to the right: Damask Grey, Fall, Chill, Pinecone, Seed)


I know this one is blurry, but I wanted you to see the shiny part of these eyeshadows!
 All 5 eyeshadows are very easy to work with, very pigmented (my only doubts go to Pinecone), shimmery (Damask Grey and Seed are ultra shimmery!). Face Candy Couture also encourages us to use this natural cosmetics not only on our eyes, but also on cheeks, lips and nails. I haven't used them this way yet (also, I think gray and brown would not be good on cheeks haha), but there are some colors, like Romantique, Pink Lemonade, Glitz that could ne used as blushes. Still, too shimmery for a blush.


How do you feel about these eyeshadows?
Are you going to give them a shot?
