My Face Cosmetics Silkscreen Eye Art Duo in Siren - Review

In the summer months (not that the UK has had much of a summer this year) I am more likely to use a splash
of colour on my eyes than I am at any other time of the year...Halloween doesn't count haha!
My Face Cosmetics have a range of Silkscreen Eye Art Duos that feature two clashing shades
that are perfect for adding a small pop of colour into your make-up be it on the lower lash line
or for more creative uses.

Each of the My Face Cosmetics Silkscreen Eye Art Duo come presented in compact transparent cases
that are the perfect size for popping in a bag to travel with, although compact in form the actual eyeshadows
are a decent size and feature a small natural fibre brush that isn't ideal for all over washes of colour but does
work well if you plan on using any of the shades as eye liners.

As the cases are transparent you can easily view the shades contained within, you may want to hold onto the cute paper sleeve that each duo is nestled inside as the illustration on the front shows how to wear the shades creatively, great if you are lacking a little inspiration from time to time.

My Face Cosmetics Silkscreen Eye Art Duo in Siren contains one bright tangerine shimmer based shade that reflects slightly golden in some lights, this has a strong yellow undertone and will be flattering on most
also this seemed to be the better pigmented shade of the duo.

The other shade in the duo is a deep reddened pink that again is shimmer based and features golden flecks
which sadly don't show all that well on camera but in reality it is almost a duo chrome shade that reflects pink and gold depending on the light source, unfortunately this is not as well pigmented as the orange option. 

Truthfully I found the formula of this set a little hit and miss but I can not dispute that they both have a lovely firm texture that picks up well on a brush and has next to none fall product fall out.
Both shades feature shimmer particles that are fine and do not irritate the delicate eye area nor does it go everywhere resulting in shimmery cheeks as well as eyes!

Although the pinkish shade option is not as well pigmented as the tangerine tone they both apply well and blend with ease but in all honesty the pink shade does not build up well and is best used as a sheer wash of shimmer based colour.
You can used the shadows as individual shades, blended togther or wet them to use as eyeliners.

For the best wear time possible I do recommend using a primer each shade, without a primer I found the wear time to be around 5 hours and with closer to 8 although the pink shade did wane around the 7 hour mark.

  1. Shame about the pigmentation of the pink, it seems like quite a nice colour! x

    1. I agree it is really pretty just a tad sheer!

  2. Two beautiful shades! They look like they'd be easily buildable to account for the lesser pigmentation xo

    1. Sadly the pink doesn't layer well at all, it became a little chalky

  3. Haven't had much experience with myface cosmetics because i have always been deterred by their high pricing and the non-appealing packaging for me. I must admit that these two colours are really pretty and the pink reminds me of NARS orgasm blusher. Thanks for reviewing :)

    1. Ah really i quite like the packaging of these they remind me of shu :)
      Oh yes I can see the orgasm comparison now :)

  4. Wow they're both so pretty.. I love orange and pink together. But if the pink isn't that pigmented it makes it seem a little expensive for $22!
    Was looking at buying this; maybe I'll just look for some similar colours elsewhere.

    Thanks for the review!

    1. I actually agree but like you said it is nice to see unusual shade combinations, the orange shade is amazing the pink is a little meh if I find anything similar I shall let you know :)

  5. Ah shame it's prettier in the palette, but lovely colours!

  6. This is definitely a unique duo! It does seem a little pricey for what you get mind! x

  7. Elf has these two shades in a quad for $1. They take a little bit for colour pay off but not too bad. :)

  8. Such beautiful colours.. in the palette! too bad they didn't come out truer to the palette.

    1. I agree the pink let it down sadly :(

  9. They do seem quite pricey for colours that you wouldn't necessarily use that often, and shame about the pigmentation...

  10. couldn't imagine wearing these shades on my eyes!
