Bionic Review: New eyeshadows by MakeUp Designory

by JoyceyCouture on 06.Jun.2010 · 2 comments

Here’s a new brand for Bionic Beauty readers- MakeUp Designory, also called MUD. I’ve got two of their eyeshadows to swatch and review for you as a “quick intro” to this makeup brand!

First up… Cajun Spice eye shadow ~


Joycey Couture reviews MUD's eye shadow in Cajun Spice

Cajun Spice is a brilliant copper eye shadow packed with mica (i.e. shimmer). It applied nicely with no dusting or fallout. It didn’t even drop into my lashes! MUD’s packaging is cute. Their single eye shadows are packaged in a sleek circular compact with a clear flip top. The packaging is sort of a cross between Sephora’s single shadows and Milani’s shadows.

This color would work year-round, regardless of trends. It’s perfect for playing up your faux tan in the summer, and warming your face during the doldrums of winter.

But I saved the best part for last… Cajun Spice is very pigmented! This shadow formula is the closest I’ve found to Milani’s in terms of ease of application, wear, and color payoff.

My second MUD eye shadow is Tinsel ~


MUD's Tinsel makes a wonderful all-over highlighter!

Tinsel is a bright, pure silver. It’s not as pigmented as Cajun Spice, but acts as more of a glimmer-loaded highlighter. I’ve been using it on my browbone, inner eye corners, bridge of nose, or just a bit above the cupid’s bow of my lips. Apply it over a matte eye shadow to instantly add shine and shimmer. I can see Tinsel dominating my makeup looks during the winter holidays!

Besides Tinsel and Cajun Spice, MakeUp Designory offers 39 other colors of eye shadows. There’s sure to be one to suit you! MUD’s eyeshadows run $13.50 each and are available on

Stay Bionic,

I love that shade on your eye. Great for work and formal occasions where you dont want to stand out too much
