Manhattan Eyemazing Effect Eyeshadow | Brownie Break

I know that I have promised to mix up my eye makeup looks color-wise but before I do, I have two drugstore neutral eyeshadow palettes to show you. Although neutral eyeshadows aren't as interesting or anything new on the market, there is always a huge, constant demand for them – they're probably most used out of all eyeshadows for most people, so this does make sense. Manhattan Cosmetics has proven itself in the blush department to me – they offer very good, versatile blushes for a really acceptable price. Liquid lipsticks are also fab and now I have refreshed my memory of their eyeshadows. Since I have only tried monos years and years ago, it was certainly interesting to check out this quad. I won't lie, the name caught my attention – Manhattan Eyemazing Effect Eyeshadow in Brownie Break 95R (approx 7€) really spoke to me as I am a huge Urban Decay Naked fan. I really dig neutrals, earthy tones look great paired with dark brown eyes and they're suited for everyday use. However, rarely do drugstore palettes remain in my focus as pigmentation is below average in most cases. This time, however, we have a surprisingly pigmented palette on our hands.


Znam da sam obecala kako ce stvari postati zivlje, raznobojnije sto se tice sminke za oci na ovom blogu ali prije nego vam priustim eksploziju boja zeljela bih predstaviti dvije neutralne palete sjena za oci iz drogerijskog ranga. Iako neutralni tonovi nisu posebno revolucionarni niti pretjerano atraktivni (doduse, kako za koga), konstantna je potraznja za sjenama zemljanih tonova – mislim da su za vecinu zena upravo takve sjene najcesce koristene tako da njihova popularnost nije iznenadjenje. Manhattan Cosmetics mi se kao brend pokazao dobrim po pitanju rumenila koja su vise nego solidna, nijansi koje pasu vecini tonova koze a cijenom su pristupacna. Takodjer su me dojmili i njihovi tecni ruzevi za usne a nedavno sam osvjezila pamcenje po pitanju njihove ponude sjena za oci. Prije vise godina sam koristila Manhattan mono sjene a ovog puta mi je paznju zaokupila paleta sjena za oci. Necu vas lagati, ime palete mi je prije svega bilo privlacno – Manhattan Eyemazing Effect Eyeshadow nijansa Brownie Break 95R (cca 13-14KM) mi se dopala na prvu posto sam velika ljubiteljica Urban Decay Naked paleta sjena za oci. Inace jako volim cokoladne nijanse koje je sa lakocom moguce nositi na svakodnevnoj bazi a i lijepo se slazu sa tamno smedjim ocima, poput mojih. Cinjenica je pak da su me u proslosti mnoge drogerijske paletice sjena za oci ostavljale ravnodusnom iz vise razloga – ispodprosjecna pigmentacija je bila mozda i najveci argument za ovakvo misljenje. Ovog puta se ipak radi o paleti sjena koje iznenadjuju svojom pigmentacijom i performansama.

Manhattan Eyemazing Effect Eyeshadow in Brownie Break (95R) is one of those chocolate inspired, warm-toned palettes. You have them arranged in quadrants – two bigger ones (shades you use on your entire lid) and smaller ones (highlighting and darkening shades). I personally think that all shades are well coordinated, they work well together and compliment each other whilst each can also be used on its own. First bigger quadrant contains a honey hued bronze with reddish undertones. Looks quite lush. Below you have a creamy nugat shade perfect as a everday entire lid option. Then you have a smaller golden/champagne highlight eyeshadow (very effective and reflective) and a taupe/grey ideal for ymoking things up and deepening any eye look. What's specific for this palette is that it's quite shimmery, borderline metallic. If you're a fan of matte eyeshadows, look elsewhere. If you like shimmery, warm chocolate shades, than you'll love Brownie Break. It makes me think of wooly sweaters, hot chocolate in a mug and comforting wintry scents. I will probably love it even more come autumn and winter, to be honest. Texture of these eyeshadows os great – buttery, glide over lids like a dream. Pigmentation is awesome, as you will tell from the photos. Longevity is average without a primer (approx 4-5h) but with one they will endure entire day. Easy to remove, shimmer not scratchy and easily blendable – I found your new fave drugstore palette!

Manhattan Eyemazing Effect Eyeshadow nijansa Brownie Break (95R) je jedna od onih paleta cokoladnih, toplih tonova. Sjene su raspodijeljene u kvadratice – dva veca (nijanse pogodne za koristenje preko cijelog kapka) i dva manja (hajlajt nijansa i boja za potamnjivanje). Smatram da su boje u ovoj paleti lijepo nijansirane, odlicno se slazu medjusobno ali ih je moguce nositi i samostalno. Prvi veci kvadratic sadrzi medeno bronzanu nijansu crvenkastog podtona i stvarno je prekrasna. Ispod nje je kremasta nugat nijansa idealna za svaki dan. Potom u manjem kvadraticu sa vrha imamo hajlajt nijansu zlacano/sampanjac boje (izuzetno efektna) a ispod nje taupe/sivkasto-smedju nijansu koja oku podari dubinu i cini svaki look raskosnim. Ono sto je specificno za ovu paletu jeste sto su sve nijanse sjena shimmeraste, neke granice sa metalik finishom. Ukoliko preferirate mat sjene, ova paleta nije namijenjena vasem ukusu. Ako pak volite malo shimmera i skloni ste toplijim nijansama na ocima, mislim da ce vas ova mini bajadera oduseviti. Brownie Break mi je tako mazna gurmanska poslastica koja me asocira na vunene dzempere, solju tople cokolade i zamamne zimske mirise – vjerovatno cu se dodatno vezati za nju po dolasku jeseni i zime. Tekstura sjena je odlicna – puterasta i glatka. Pigmentacija je odlicna, kako cete primjetiti i sa fotografija. Trajnost je prosjecna bez prajmera (cca 4-5h) no sa prajmerom sjene traju na mojim kapcima cijeli dan. Sjene se divno nanose i blendaju, nije ih tesko ukloniti skidacem sminke po volji – nemojte me drzati za rijec ali kao da vidim da sam pronasla idealnu drogerijsku paleticu!
