Hi everyone! Some of you guys asked for a review when I got my order in and I’ve to apologize for this insanely overdue post. My obsession for eyeshadows is real and you won’t believe if I told you that it’s all buried deep in my storage drawer that I totally forgotten about these. So instead, today I’m going to show you what’s my favorite picks that I got from Karity Professional and how I save coins.
I did a research and here’s the story behind this company. According to their website, Karity aims to “By selling directly to you, they cut out all of the extra markups that make all of those other fancy brands so pricey.”
My obsession for neutral nude eyeshadows are endless. So, when I saw these pretty shade eyeshadows I knew I needed to try some of them. On their website they have eyeshadow palettes as well as individual shadows. I picked up seven single shadows from matte, velvet and frost finishing for you to get the sense of the type of finish this brand offer.
I’ve found some amazing and affordable eyeshadow that’s comparable to the Colourpop individual shadows and I’m excited to talk about them today. Scroll down for comparison from both brands in packaging, eyeshadow and to color swatches.
MOONSHINE – is a Soft creamy beige frosty eyeshadow.
DIMEPIECE – Metallic Silver with icy shimmer frost eyeshadow
BIRTHDAY SUITE – Soft creamy beige matte eyeshadow
INOD is described as a Soft golden peachy brown matte eyeshadow
PANAMA GOLD – is described as a Peachy-brown with shimmer velvet eyeshadow
TEMPTRESS – Intense reddish brown matte eyeshadow
BEIGNING – Soft muted beige taupe matte eyeshadow
As you can see, they come in a cute packages and when you turn around it, you’ll also see the list of ingredients, as well as it’s cruelty free and recyclable. It gives you the texture of the color, it’s matte and the name.
Did you see that happy little cruelty free bunny!
I bought this separately to fill the individual eyeshadow pans. This palette also contains built in magnets that can hold up to twelve of our finished single shadows or empty 26mm pans. It comes with a huge mirror that I really appreciate.
Note that it doesn’t have a magnetic closure but it’s definitely a sturdy constructed palette to store your individual shadows. The lid’s opens and shuts with a click. This palette is the exact dupe to the Coastal Scents Interchangeable Palette if you asked me. If you’re only looking for an empty palette and for the price alone, I would say go for the Coastal palette. It’s only a fraction of the price for the exact product
All the shadow pots stick perfectly to the base due to the magnets. It’s a good size palette that’s travel friendly and convenient to bring everywhere. I like that I only picked the colors I want in it, my own customized palette tailored to me.
As you can see the shades although pigmented are also extremely buildable, so you can create a very soft and natural look with these neutral shadows. I would say the lasting power is decent but it gets better with eye primer for sure.
Today’s blog post is super quick but jammed packed with photos. I wanted to share with you the full swatches of the eyeshadows I got from Karity. I understand how hard it is to shop online so I’m hoping these straightforward swatches help.
Below are the color swatches I did on my arm without primer or eyeshadow base. I love how pigmented these shadows are. The texture feels smooth and creamy. I’m surprised that it blends so well given they’re so pigmented shadows.
The color payoff is amazing, what you see is what you get!
I don’t have all the Mac Single Shadows to compare but here’s the list of dupes of (Mac vs Karity) I found on Pinterest which I hope helps. I’m pleased to have picked up six out of seven Mac dupes from Karity that saves me some money.
Nylon – Moonshine
Brule – Birthday Suite
Electra – Dimepiece
Soft Brown – Inod
Texture – Panama Gold
Embark – Temptress
I mentioned earlier in this post that I’ll be doing a comparison between Karity and Colourpop so here’s a quick sneak peek. If you like me to do a comprehensive blog review, let me know in the comment below. As far as packaging, formula and price tag goes, I think they’re very competitive and similar in many ways. To top it up, both are also cruelty free brands except Karity is a little underrated.
Overall verdict: These eyeshadows are richly pigmented. I like the way it applies and blend. Honestly, I’m quite impressed with the quality and the affordable prices are a hard thing to come by. This cruelty free single shadow is only $4.50 and they got all shades of the rainbow for everyone. I do recommend you giving these a try because you won’t be disappointed. So what are you waiting for – don’t take my word for it, go check it out!
When you order from Karity, make sure to use their offer for FREE Shipping on US orders over $35. I want you to save on shipping so I’m just passing on the good news. I don’t work or have any affiliate links with this brand.
