Global Goddess eyeshadows

When had their sale a few months ago I snagged a few of Global Goddess's single eyeshadows. These retail for $18 and can be found on as well as Global Goddess's website. Some of these can be found on as well.

I got:
Malaika (Boho)- The swatch on's site showed a nudeish color, so of course I was totally surprised when I got a yellow one. Malaika is a medium yellow shadow with slight pink duochrome, very low shimmer
Shambala- mattish peach
Darjeeling- mattish taupe
Kumaon-warm, shimmery brown...also the only nonpigmented one with a hard texture
Madhuri (Boho)- dark taupey color with green microshimmer
Aishwarya- Beautiful plummy purple with gold shimmer...this one's my favorite out of the ones I ordered.
Shilpa (Boho line)- website desciption says matte seafoam green..which is totally inaccurate. Shilpa is a pigmented turquise color. It doesn't have any apparent shimmer, but it doesn't seem as flat as matte shadows usually are.
Texture-wise, except for Kumaon, all of these shadows were soft and pigmented and are decent shadows, though online color swatches for these are fairly inaccurate. They were a good buy for $9 each, but I'm not sure I'd buy any of these at full price except maybe Aishwarya.


  1. I love these colors! OMG! And I love how the names are so unique

  2. Oh I love Shilpa - I love how they are named after Bollywood actresses.
