Black|Up Cosmetics Mono Eyeshadow Review

PR SAMPLE

 

Can I just say how much I love Black|Up Cosmetics?  Seriously, their products are high-end, perform well, colorful, fun, and pigmented.  Their products are a makeup artist or enthusiasts dream. Just imagine how I felt when I received the reformulated Black|Up Mono Eyeshadow and Waterproof Smoky Kohl Pencil to try out – ecstatic! Keep reading to read my thoughts and to see the fun look I created using them.

Black|Up Cosmetics describes their mono eyeshadow as…

“Ultra-pigmented formulas in pure and intense colours for a perfectly even and incomparable make-up result!”

The Black|Up Cosmetics Mono Eyeshadow is currently available in 15 shades, 10 of which are metallic, and 5 of them are matte.  For review, I received two of the matte shades: OAP02M (orange) and OAP11M (vibrant blue).

You’re probably wondering how well the Black|Up Cosmetics Mono Eyeshadows perform, right?

Well, I was impressed by how pigmented the Black|Up Cosmetics Mono Eyeshadows are.  It took very little work, and no [white] base was needed in order to make the colors pop; however, I did use a primer to secure its staying power.  And surprisingly, on my complexion, the colors showed true to color, which is sometimes hard to pull off, especially without using a white or light base.  Both shades blended with ease.

The matte orange Black|Up Cosmetics Mono eyeshadow was my favorite of the two, as orange anything complements brown skin well. The blue was also pretty, and for me, a bit much for everyday use, but, I would definitely pull it out for a party or girls night out.

Next, we have the Black|Up Cosmetics Waterproof Smoky Kohl Pencil.  These pencils work double duty having the ability to work both as an eyeshadow and eye pencil.  I received the Black|Up Waterproof Smoky Kohl Pencil in KS03, which is a beautiful, pearlescent, vibrant blue.

The Black|Up Cosmetics Waterproof Smoky Kohl Pencil glided on smoothly. It stayed in place throughout the time I wore it, and like the eyeshadows, they, too are packed with color.

To create this look, I did the following:

  1. Blend the Black|Up Cosmetics Mono Eyeshadow OAP02M (orange) into and above the crease
  2. Apply the Black|Up Cosmetics Mono Eyeshdaow OAP11M (vibrant blue) to the lid and blend upwards
  3. Using a pencil brush, apply a dark brown eyeshadow to the crease, and blend. *I used the brown from the Black|Up Cosmetics 5 Colour Eyeshadow Palette*
  4. Line lower lash line with the Black|Up Cosmetics Waterproof Smoky Kohl Pencil.
  5. Apply mascara or falsies.

On my face, just in case you’re wondering, I used the Black|Up Cosmetics Contour Stick, sublime powder, and blush.  I LOVE their sublime powder.  Oh, and on my lips I have on their orange matte lipstick that I reviewed last summer.

  1. The blue with the orange is definitely a LOOK! I like it on you, not sure I could pull it off. I do like the blue eye liner a lot, though! These BlackUp products are super-duper pigmented!

  2. I have the black-up foundation. It was given to me by a friend and she told me how inexpensive they were. Your eyes look great and your eyeshadow is beautiful! Subscribing!
