Beauty Bandit: City Girl Princessa Shanghai Eyeshadow



Recently, I saw Beauty Youtuber Emily talked about beauty products at Miss A Shop website and thanks for the reminder, I went back to shop online again. I bought a couple of products before and went back mainly for the price. It’s dirt cheap BUT decent quality. I would say, come neck to neck with Elf cosmetics. Comparable in quality depending on the brands you choose from the site.

Miss A Shop carries not only cosmetics but jewelry, nails, hair and charms. Everything in the STORE is for US$1.00 ONLY! I know, it’s insane right!

I ordered a few products from different brands like Malibu, Starry and City Girl. Today, I’m going to talk about City Girl Eyeshadow Trio – SHANGHAI


First thing I noticed when I unbagged this packaging is the spelling error on Eyeshadow. Gaahhhh! I was really upset since I’m a sucker for adorable packaging and this destroys the cute packaging (boohoo hoo!).

That’s my shocking expression you see here – of “sister” from the “Berenstain Bears” when I noticed the spelling error. Needless to say, I immediately turn the packaging and found it was Made In TAIWAN. Bummer!


Don’t get me wrong, for the price these are good eyeshadows. If you can live ignoring the wording then I recommend this. I got the Shanghai, and the colors are decently pigmented, build-able, and you get a lot for the money. Plus there’s a cute mirror in the top of the container.


Shanghai as you see it!


But then, another shocker is the color selection (in a good way). Very nice shades of Shanghai. Available in six inspired cities in the world – Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo, Shanghai, New York and Mexico City.


I ant to share a close up picture of this trio eyeshadow. It’s travel friendly and the paper box packaging is light to drop it in a purse.


Look! There is a round mirror on the inside lid. How cool is that?


The texture of the eyeshadow is like a decently milled pressed/compacted pigment. Incredibly easy to pick up products and it blends effortlessly. Color payoff is decent and it lasted the whole day I was wearing it yesterday and today.


Overall, I really like this shadow for now and it’s my love at first sight, and if you’re a girl who can’t be bothered with using makeup brushes or if you’re into the simple one-color eyeshadow looks, these are great. I love shadows that can be applied quickly and look great on their own, and this is one of them! So, YAY!

I also think this is a really pretty shade for Winter. I can see it looking great with berry or red lips! Don’t you think!

My favorite application tool is my fingertip or an old-school sponge applicator, as they both pick up the most product and apply the product in an opaque layer. A small flat brush also works well, such as a small concealer brush.

If you are on a Low Buy or beginners to beauty department, you can definitely have to stop by Miss A website. This deal is a steal, I didn’t mean for it to rhyme but it just did. Decent quality products that wouldn’t break your bank,

What do you think? Have you ever tried this brand before? Do you like them? Or are you completely over them?

Stay tune for more reviews on beauty products from Miss A Shop coming up next.

Thanks so much for stopping by and comment. Hope to see you on the next one! 🙂

  1. Never heard of Miss S Shop! Is the shipping ok? I’ve not heard of the brand City Girl – looks decent. And is that a MIRROR inside the lid of the eye shadow?
    Oh my gosh, I love that you photographed the eye shadow over a page of Berenstain Bears!!! Totally brings back memories! Is that a book that your little one reads?

    1. I was introduced to Miss A shop last year and it’s my second time ordering after watching youtuber Emily talking about it. I paid $5.95 for shipping. Yes, that’s the mirror.
      Thanks for loving the pics and yes it’s for his bedtime story. .
