Product Review : Hiro Cosmetics Pressed Eyeshadows

 

issue seven : folklore & fairytales

 

Hiro’s pressed eyeshadows are quite simply dreamy. A soft, buttery velvet is how I would describe them. I also like the fact that their matte’s are matte and the shimmers are soft and pretty and not heavily glittered.

And the best part…not a drop of talc anywhere and very minimal fall-off. They are highly pigmented eyeshadows and their formulation density is spot on. The fact that they are buildable is great when you’re creating whimsical looks or a bold smokey eye. All in all, these dreamy eyeshadows are certainly worthy of painting on fairytale princesses and faeries alike and are brimming with faerie garden ingredients (a.k.a flower extracts) and faeriedust.

I recently used these 808, Headroom and Loop in our latest beauty editorial “A Faerie Tale” to give the beautiful Ella an etherial, modern look.

(I also used them to create depth and dimension on the hands. A detail often forgotten, but that can make a big impact.)

They all come as single magnetic refills so you can simply add them to your existing eyeshadow palettes or create your own palette of colours suited to your needs.
