My Opinion on Mars Matte Eye Shadow

The brand MARS is not a new name when it comes to affordable products. I have used a couple of products from this brand and quite like them. The price is affordable, but the quality is not bad at all. I got this eye shadow palette since it had beautiful colors to work with and I wanted to buy one after the NYX Brights Palette. Didn’t want to use it roughly, that’s how much I love it.


The Mars Eye Shadow Palette comes packed in a glossy white plastic palette with a full size mirror.  The mirror is a beauty to work with. When its full sized. The shades are tightly packed in individual rectangular pans. A long dual ended sponge tip applicator comes packed inside. The palette is sturdy, but not travel friendly. The mirror and shadows might break in transit. So better keep it at home only.


Now comes the shock of my life, eye shadow palette under Rs. 500 which is as soft and smooth as any other well known drugstore brand. What? The shades easily apply and glide on the eyelids with a brush. They blend seamlessly. There is no creasing at all. The texture made me fall in love and try out new eye looks every other day. The shadows are quite light weight and doesn’t feel cakey whatsoever. There is some fall out but that helps it blend well.


The palette has some really fun shades to play with. Colors are bright and happy, can easily light up your day. I love all of them, cant choose which one is bad and which one is the best. The color range is gorgeous, from blue, pinks, reds there is also brown and white. A black is missing though. The palette is available in four different versions if I am not wrong. This one is version 2 and I am quite happy with the shade range. There are some similar shades also, which could be substituted I feel.

Pigmentation & Staying Power

Oh my God! Did you ask about the color pay off? Its brilliant. I could never imagine such a great color pay off. It stunned me when I used it for the first time. There is some fall out but that helps it blend well. Every color is super pigmented and comes out really well on my primed eye lids.
The colors stay intact on my eyes throughout the day. With heat, it might wear off a little, but still commendable.
