Frontcover Baked Eye Shadows & Compact

Frontcover Baked Eye Shadows Review Swatches

This is the first time I am using Frontcover cosmetics, despite hearing about them before. I was lucky enough to be sent some lovely eye shadows and a compact for review. Frontcover believe that good quality cosmetics do not have to be expensive and I like that way of thinking a lot!

Each eye shadow is only £4.00 and the compact which holds 4 eye shadows is £4.00 as well. Frontcover have a lovely range of eye shadows, ranging from the bright to the more neutral tones ones like the ones  I have – there is something for everyone!

The products I am reviewing here are all available to buy on the Frontcover website.


First off I have to say that these eye shadows look like the Laura Mercier baked shadows, which are much more expensive at nearly £20 per pop. These Frontcover ones are much more pocket friendly!

They are sold individually which I think is a great idea. That way you are not stuck with shades you will not use which is sometimes the case with palettes. It also means you can switch the shadows in your palette in different combinations – to take away what you need or for a bit of variation.

The palette itself is really good quality. It is sturdy and had a good size mirror in the lid. It reminds me a little of Bobbi Brown shadow and lip palettes. It also comes with a double ended brush which is really handy.

The shadows themselves are fairly finely milled. They have a lovely slightly metallic sheen to them but they are not glittery or even particularly shimmery for that matter.

The shades are as follows:

Copper Oro

These shadows have light-medium pigmentation when applied with a dry brush but they do pack a punch when applied with a damp brush. They are a tiny bit hard to blend but its not a deal breaker at all. You get a lovely veil of colour with these and I like them a lot – they compliment each other well!

With a primer these last quite well. I had no creasing but I did find they faded a little bit towards the end of the day, but still wore well for a good 7 hours or so. Please also bear in mind I do have oily lids.

I love the concept of these shadows – chopping and changing when you feel like it, travel friendly and kind to your wallet! As a concept they remind me of the FashionistA brand which Superdrug sells but these Frontcover products are better quality and the palettes look and feel much nicer than FashionistA although they are the same price. Frontcover provide brilliant value for money!

Here are the ingredients of one of the shadows to give you an idea of what they contain:
