Zaron is arguably one of the most popular indigenous makeup brands we have in Nigeria and they are particularly dear to my heart because I have watched them grow from their very early days. The days when we only had a few Nigerians brave enough to venture into their own makeup lines. "Buying Nigerian" only recently became cool, so kudos to Zaron for sticking it out. Check this post out for a review I did of their products in the early days of the blog.
They very kindly sent me 10 eye shadows from their new Uno Eyeshadow Collection for review. Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate it!
The colors sent to me with my description of the shades below:
01 Iron Throne- a metallic copper
02 Mocha- a matte coffee brown
03 Charcoal- a matte black
04 Cadillac- a shimmery beige
05 Gold Rush- a shimmery bright gold
06 Whirl Wind- a shimmery dark purple
07 Mystery- a shimmery dark blue
08 Babe- a shimmery pink
09 Desert- a shimmery grey
10 Jasper- a shimmery dark green
The Uno Eyeshadow Collection is brilliant. I feel very proud of Zaron because these eye shadows can stand very proudly next to any other international brands and hold its own! Color ,me impressed! I particularly love the color range, a lot of everyday neutrals which is right up my alley and a number of bright "occasion" shades.
These eyeshadows are also very well pigmented- as you will see from my pictures below. I am wearing it without any primer and the colors are popping! The formula is also so easy to blend and guess what? These had ZERO FALL OUT! How amazing is that? Even the most expensive eyeshadow brands (I'm looking at you UD Naked palettes -_-) suffer from the dreaded fallout. Round of applause for Zaron on this one! :)

|01 Iron Throne|
|05 Gold Rush|
My favorite two shades from the bunch are Iron Throne and Mocha- perfect lid and crease colors for an everyday eye. They remind me very much of my favorite eyeshadow combo from MAC- Ambering Lights and Embark. Ambering Lights is a little more on the gold side though.
|See what I said about the eyeshadows popping without any primer!|
Mac Select SPF 15 Foundation in NC50 (yes, i'm back to this...story for another post)
Mac MSF Natural in Dark to set foundation
Mac Blush in Sweet as Cocoa
Mac Embark e/s for brows
Zaron Uno e/s in Iron Throne on the lid
Zaron Uno e/s in Mocha in the crease
Mac Victoriana lipstick
I recommend these eyeshadows because you should support Nigerian brands :) ok reallt though, these are pretty shades and great quality. You can purchase Zaron products online from Jumia and Konga.
Which of the 10 shades is your favorite?
Enjoy the weekend!
Peace and Love,
