Monave CosmeticsUltra-matte eye shadow in Heather Dark and EOTD

Monave Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Heather Dark

Monave Cosmetics Mineral Ultra Matte eyeshadow in Heather Dark

There was a time when I did not know that eye shadows could be a part of regular makeup looks. Like most of you, a liptick and kajal was all. Now I think I'm inundated with eyeshadows. For sometime, I have been so obsessed with smoky eyes that almost all my eye makeups end up with some amount of smoked effect. But the most satisfactory one I ever succeeded was with the Monave shadow in Heather Dark. I have been using some Monave Cosmetics makeups and Have already reviewed the foundation here. Now is the eye-shadow's turn.


What it is?  This is a mineral eye shadow and thus, supposedly skin friendly. It comes in a small pot with sieves and is intensely pigmented. Even without an eyebase and with proper blending, it would stay put for upto 4 hours and with a base, longer than that after which it starts fading mildly.


Monave says that all of their makeups are hypo - allgergic. In fact, the owner, Teporah, started the brand because she felt, like her, there are many women who suffer from allergy. So, the makeups are safe for allergy prone skin as well.

 My experience: The shade Heather dark is a very deep violet. It is mildly shimmery which shows up matte and looks more of gray on me. It;s more like a mix of charcoal and purpelle and I love the effect it leaves. Looks dark charcoal, yet elusively violet.

Price and Quantity: $10 for 3 grams.

My likes:
  1.  A good quantity  judging by the quantity required. less than wee bit does good for both of my eyes.
  2. The color is pretty intense. So you won;t have to work hard to make it show up.
  3. Stays put for a long time sans base.
  4. Frangrance free.
  5. Skin friendly.
  6. Matte. So can be worn more frequently.
  7. This is my dream shade for a smoky look.
  8. Monave ships woorld wide and they have samples which you can but at very low price and find your shades. This ensures your money is not wasted.

Not so good about it.
  1. I have no complaint with the product. But the price is a bit too high. $10 for a single eyeshadow! Ok, we still do purchase that costly eye shadows, and this one is going to last forvever.
  2. Available only online. This is an issue for me since I don't have a credit card. I know it sounds funny. Moreover, my debit card is one which cannot be used online. So, I have very limited access.
  3. There is an extra fee for handling. So the price would go up a bit even higher.

Now my EOTD!! I have not done an EOTD for a long time. Gere goes today's work. I know this can be perfected. But I am still in the process of learning. I have paired it with another shadow in the crease. I have used only two eyeshadows for this look. If you want my cheat method I can come up with a post.


Heather is the darker shade on my lids.




Like or dislike the easiest eye makeup around?

The product was sent to me by the brand for consideration. But my opinion is honest as always .
