Price

 One thing I like
about this brand is that there is such a wide variety of shades from the very
light to the deepest and most pigmented shades. Also, most of the shades are
offered in several different sizes, from 26 mm on up! Shadow prices start at $5
for a 26 mm to $8 for a 26 mm depending on the finish of the shadow. The
shadows come in matte, shimmer, electadescent neon, and duo-chrome finishes;
The palette that I created has a mix of matte, shimmer, and duo-chrome. If you
have ever visited my YouTube channel (Click HERE!) you know that I am a big fan of blue &
green, as well as pink & purple. This particular palette is a pink &
purple-themed palette. To customized this palette was quite affordable
considering the remarkable quality of the shades.

Company Profile

The company is owned by Ms.
DeAndra and is located in Salem, Oregon. The brand’s owner encourages its
customer to contact the company regarding general; inquiries, order inquires,
and wholesale inquiries, You can reach out to the company through email
(Click HERE!) or you can reach them directly via phone
at 503-877-9456 during business hours (9:00 am – 6:00 pm PST).

Purchase Process 

The only issue that I
personally had with the purchase process had absolutely nothing to do with the brand itself, but because the selection is so varied and there is such a
fantastic and well-rounded shadow range I had difficultly narrowing my choices
down to a 9 pam customized, a rated palette of pink & purple shadows. There
was so much to choose from that it made it a tad bit hard to narrow down the
palette to shades that created a unique, personalized compilation of shades
that articulated my own personal style. I think that’s actually a good issue to
encounter.

Packaging 

Each shadow is packaged in
minimalistic individualized simple sleeves which are comprised of a combination
of plastic & cardboard. They are packaged together tightly is a shipping
box that is appropriate and adequate to the space necessary to secure all the
shadows.

Marketing

The smart and more
profitable move for most indie besuty brands is to utilize small to mid size
youtuber to aid in capturing customers that are looking for high quality
products that address unique and reasonably priced. Devinah uses this type of
smart and strategic marketing in such a manner as competition head begin to
rise among even smaller indie brands

Comparable Brands 

A brand that comes top mind
that is similar to Devinah is Sydney Grace, both offering high quality products
at competitive prices that are unique and create trends instead of following
them. 

Pigmentation 

This is not my first
experience with Devinah Cosmetics and their beautiful and varied selection of
shadows. Devinah offers a wide and remarkable grouping of shades that
effectively ranges in each shade. I, myself pur together a small curated
palette of my favorite 2 shades, purple and pink. These swatches below can
attest to the outstanding pigmentation these shapes provide. 

Color Payoff 

There is a distinct
difference between pigmentation and color payoff. The payoff is more about how the
population transfers top the eye and how it blends out. Does it skip? Is our
too difficult top blend? Does it play well with other shadows? In terms of
these questions regarding these shadows is that the shades I picked, which
tend to be problematic along the color spectrum.  Is that they blend
amazingly well and maintain the integrity of the pigment when translated to the
eye. 

Performance

As always, Devinah delivers excellent quality with a wide selection of shades that are available to create monochromatic curated  palettes similar to the one I created above. Definitely a beauty brand to support in the burgeonin

Overall
Product Presentation

 A fantastic brand owned by a very innovative and trend setting female who who is bravely moves head  first into the ever evolving competitive  Indie Cosmetics market. Well done Devinah!

WHY AM I IN THE TOP FIVE
I recently put this in a shop my stash palette rotation and I was pleased to experience the same quality that I have come to love in my other Lunar Beauty palettes. Manny MUA has really been consistent, killing it with his releases and providing quality products for his loyal followers.Job well done, Mr. MUA.

WHY AM I IN THE TOP FIVE

When I decided to color my hair last November, I was super nervous because there was so many factors to consider. I wanted something long lasting and vibrant, but would not damage my hair if I relaxed it too close together.This product is spectacular. It is a semi permanent, vegan formulated product that I can literally apply right after I relax my hair. It is fairly, and I can purchase it my local Sally’s around the corner my house. Definitely a new favorite. 

WHY AM I IN THE TOP FIVE

This palette is from my current favorite Indie Brand, Sound Cosmetics! The owner. Christine is an amazing women making her mark in the Indie Makeup Industry. This palette is the Sweetheart palette, and I feel I can more than adequately speak to the brand’s eyeshadow formula, as I own over 20 of this brand’s eyeshadow palettes, with three more arriving to my house soon. The customer service is phenomenal and the quality is outstanding and the palette’s are unique and varied with shades that are beautiful for a variety of skin tones/ One of the highlights in this palette is the yellow goldish on the bottom row. That all over the lid with the brown shade next to it, and the cranberry above, is perfection. For a full review of all of my current Sound Cosmetic’s eyeshadow palettes, Click HERE! 


WHY AM I IN THE TOP FIVE

These are a selection of incredibly well performing face sheet masks from Shop Miss A. Each mask was a dollar and is useful and affordable at the same time. Each brand comes in a variety of vegetable and fruit based formulas that provide specific functions and essential nutrients to the skin. Definitively worth checking out.

BFD Oil Cleanser
WHY AM I IN THE BOTTOM 5

Geez, I gave this product a good, consistent place in my skin care routine and although it’s very affordable, I was sorely disappointed with it’s performance. With these type of cleansers, and with every initial cleanser, I always double cleanse, however, I found as an initial makeup remover, it was fair at best. I would have to wash my face three times for it to feel fully clean, whereas, as in other circumstances I would only have to use a cleanse twice. I also noticed that even after using my secondary not once, but twice, it felt like there was a film on my skin. Even though it’s affordable. I choose to spend my coins elsewhere.


SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick 96 Red Velvet 0.169 oz/ 5 mL Sephora Quality, Way-Nice Price Sephora Quality Way-Nice Price
WHY AM I INT THE BOTTOM 5

I got this on sale during a normal haul from Sephora and I should have known from it’s $3 price tag that it wasn’t going to be impressive and it’s absolutely not. The formulation is awful. It feels gross on the lips and its wear time is HORRIBLE. Just a complete waste of $3. Save your money.
FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna - Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette 7 x 0.1 oz/ 2.8 g
WHY AM I INT THE BOTTOM 5

The only product that I have had any luck with from this brand is their Pro Filt’r powder. It is in fact outstanding, but every eyeshadow palette, plus this face palette, I have purchased has been a nightmare of an experience and a total waste of money. First, this is supposed to be a face palette, and I am not sure on what palette that makes any sense and even if I use it as an eyeshadow palette. the formula is very thin and unnecessarily glittery. Not impressed at all.

SEPHORA COLLECTION - Clay Mask 1.18 oz/ 35 mL Sephora Quality, Way-Nice Price Sephora Quality Way-Nice Price
WHY AM I INT THE BOTTOM 5

This is yet another Sephora product that is completely a waste of money. The smell of this face mask it more than unpleasant. So unpleasant to the point where I personally cannot use it at all. I also don’t see how your supposed to get four uses out of this product. Major fail.
