Beauty Junkies Unite for New Beauty Junkees Releases

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

If there's one indie beauty brand that amazes me more and more, it has to be Beauty Junkees. The products that I have so far tried from them rival mainstream, if not better (check out reviews of kabuki brush set, eye brush set, contour palette). I know some of you are looking for a magnetic palette that can hold your eyeshadow singles, I can't recommend theirs enough! Sans froufrou and bling, the ones that I own are sturdy enough to protect your beloved singles. As if it won't get any better, Beauty Junkees recently launched eyeshadows, blushes and highlighters, much to every beauty junkie's delight!

There are 33 brand spanking new eyeshadow shades, sold either as singles (at $6 each) or quads ($19.97) in case you can't decide which colors to purchase. Consider it like your makeup guide. The eyeshadow colors range from neutrals to bolds, covering both warm and cool spectrum. The mattes and sheens have moderate but buildable pigmentation while the shimmers pack on more color at first dib. 
Concurrently, Beauty Junkees released six blushes and two highlighters retailing for $8 each. It's a steal because judging from the size in comparison to single pans, you're getting almost three times more! Here are individual swatches for your buying reference:
First Snow: matte white

Citrus: sheen yellow orange
Oh Deer: matte soft brown
Beams of Light: pearl white with pink shift
Steel wool: metallic gray
Finally, the highlighters and blush colors:
Pow: champagne
Pink Parfait: pink champagne

Mauve Mist: part-matte, part-sheen mauve
Whipped mocha: matte mocha

Here are simple eye makeup looks I created. With eye primer underneath (which I always do), the wear time of these eyeshadows is about seven hours, with quite noticeable fading thereafter. I went with green vibes on the first set of photos and berry merry with the next. I was wearing Pow highlighter in both looks but added Russet Rose on the second look. Overall, I am happy to add these beauties to my ever expanding Beauty Junkees collection. You can buy them online (storefront or Amazon). Unaffiliated links.
