Name: Eye-Art Extreme Eyeshadows
From Layla’s website:
Extreme, dangerously sensual powders. Artistic results, extraordinary looks. 12 shades, 12 pure pigments, amazing staying power.
What I liked:
– beautiful shades
– very pigmented
– matte finish
– easy to blend and work with
– shades last most of the day even without a primer
– packaging includes a mirror
What I didn’t like:
– texture is slightly chalky so some fall out can occurr
– packaging can get dirty easily
I have always loved matte eyeshadows but it’s hard to find some good ones around. Either they lack pigmentation or they are hard to work with. So, when I got 6 of the 12 shades of Layla Eye-Art Extreme Eyeshadows I felt like I was in heaven! They are some of the most pigmented eyeshadows I have ever tried, the color payoff is just amazing!
But I’ll let the swatches do the talking. They were done on bare skin and with only one swipe so you can see for yourself how bright and bold these are. Definitely not for the faint of heart or those that are afraid of colors, but everyone else will fall in love with them. You only need to apply very little to get a fantastic color payoff and unless you have quite oily lids, you could even skip using a primer as these last most of the day even without it.
I would put them on in the morning and it’s only after dinner that I notice some minimal fading and creasing. They are also easy to work with and blend. Some of the shades are a bit chalky so some fall out can occur, but I don’t really mind. I do my eye makeup before doing the rest of my face anyway and the color payoff and staying power are so excellent that a bit of fall out doesn’t bother me.
The Eye-Art Eyeshadows are packaged in little white and silver compacts. I think they look nice although they can get dirty quite easily. Inside, there is also a mirror for easier applications and touch-ups on the go (not that you need them!).
I guess priced at €14,41 each, they aren’t that cheap but you get quite a lot of product in the pan and you only need so little for each application that they will last for a long, long time. And it’s not often you find such great, pigmented matte eyeshadows, so if you find one or more colors you like, I highly recommend you try them. You won’t regret it.

I absolutely adore Layla Eye-Art Extreme Eyeshadows. These matte eyeshadows have incredible color payoff, last for hours even without a primer and are easy to blend. However, a few of the shades are chalky and prone to fall out.
