Fab Find: Shadow Shields!

Have you ever come across a product and thought, "Why didn't I think to invent that?" That product for me is Shadow Shields. I think we've all done the whole tape-under-the-eyes to prevent eyeshadow fallout, so I wanted to share these with you all, as they are made to put under the eyes to catch eyeshadow fallout!


Each box of these contains 30 shields in a slight-crescent shape to fit perfectly under the eyes. The box of 30 retails for $9.99, which I think is fairly affordable.


The shields themselves have a cotton-pad like texture, but are very thin (as opposed to a fluffy cotton pad). Perfect for catching fallout.


As you can see below, the back of each shield is entirely adhesive, and has different strips so you can choose how much adhesion you use. I've found I only need to use the top two little corners for a good hold on my skin, but you can peel off whichever parts you like!


To conserve these, I like to use one under one eye, then use that same shield under the other eye as well. The adhesion is pretty strong, so I can easily get multiple sticks out of it.

Pretty cool, huh? You can find these on several beauty websites, as well as ShadowShields.com and Amazon. I think this is especially perfect for any makeup artists out there to use on clients... a little more professional than something like tape!

  3. That's a great idea! Although I don't think I'd spend money on them!

  4. I like the idea, but tissue does fine for me and saves loads of money. When you use eye-shadow every day sometimes twice even three times a day, it's quite expensive! Nice Blog though :)

  6. Nice idea, but a loose powder under my eyes works just fine & it's cheaper :)

  7. Cool idea! I actually don't have a problem with fallout that often, but this would be great for people who have that problem!

  8. Nice! I usually brush some powder under eye area/check, so those fallouts can be easily brush off when I'm done with eye makeup! that's even cheaper..! you should try it!

  11. What a fabulous idea! I'm going to have to get some. I have so much trouble with fallout from dark eyeshadows.

    P.S. I'm doing a giveaway on my blog! Please check it out!

  12. Very clever!
    I'm trying to find some discontinued/limited edition MAC products and I seem to remember you tracked down a discontinued dark teal MAC eyeshadow in the past... I tried looking back through your blog and through some categories to see if I could find it, but I couldn't. If I'm not imagining things, what was the website that you used to find and order that product?

  13. it was from allcosmeticswholesale.com :)

  14. very innovative idea. I think that for now I'll stick with some tape though :P

    ReplyDelete
  15. these have been around for ages, lol. i think reusable silicone ones are a better investment or loose powder, for that matter

    ReplyDelete
  16. hmmm exactly - why didn't i think of that?
    it seems like a really good idea - and i'd love to try it, but i'll probably just stick to using tissue and a bit of cream to stick it to my face and catch fall out.
    have you tried these? how well do they work?

  17. I think they would be so useful for make up artists but maybe not for amateurs like me!

  18. Whoever thought of that is pretty creative!

  19. Kinda gimmicky and unnecessary.

  20. I do my eyes first and then my foundation routine - so I don't need something like that...

  21. I know that it's not relevant here BUT I saw the Hunger Games movie yesterday!!!
    It was fantastic!!! :)
    I wrote a review about it on my blog:

  25. this would be perfect for me! I am always getting glitter all over my face, but I think that I wouldn't be able to spend that much for something that i will use up so quickly.. 30 for 10$ meaning one for each eye, so they only last for 15 days... Oh well

    These are a cool and innovative product - especially useful for makeup artists. I was quite intrigued when I saw Sam from the Pixiwoos use them in one of her tutorials.

  27. i feel like you could also use this on top of your eyelids for applying a thick layer of mascara. sometimes i do it with a business card or a post-it note. :)

  28. It's a cool idea, but there are many other (and cheaper) ways to do the same thing :)

  29. Nice idea, but using them often, won't you risk to damage your under-eye area causing wrinkles etc..? You could simply apply foundation later :)
