Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy Eyeshadow Primers - Review, Pictures, Swatches

Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy in Moxie, Roxie and Foxy


Brain:
Guess what eyelids!

Eyelids:
What!?

Brain:
I have a new treat for yooooou!

Eyelids:
What? A New eye cream? Another Taupe shadow?

Brain:
Nope. Even Better!

Eyelids
Ummm. Not another eye primer.

Brain:
And they say you are the dumbest part of the body. YES! A new eye primer from Stars Makeup Haven!

Eyelids:
Who says I'm the dumbest part of the body? The lip? They never stop talking smack!

Brain:
It was a figure of speech.

Eyelids:
What?  Never mind. I don't want another eye primer. I'm happy with the one I'm using right now.  Plus I thought Stars Makeup Haven only sold empty eyeshadow pans and palettes.

Brain:
Au contraire mon ami!  Stars Makeup Haven also sells eyeshadows and lipglosses and has THREE different eyeshadow primers.  In fact, they are back in business with a whole new commitment to customer service. They have maintained their high quality in products that they offer as well.  The owner recently passed away unexpectedly, but her husband and a close personal friend have taken over and are making sure that Stars Makeup Haven is able to carry on.  It's quite inspiring, to tell the truth. It's sad, but it's nice to see that there are people out there that loved the owner so much that they continue to carry on her dream.  Don't ya think?

Eyelids:
Yes. That is nice. I'm glad they are still around.  OK.  So tell me more about this eye primer.

Brain:

Eyelids:
Cute!

Brain:
Yes it is.  It's very similar to Urban Decay Primer Potion in texture, but seems to last as long as Too Faced Shadow Insurance and Lorac Behind The Scenes Eyeshadow primer!  It's kind of the best of all three primers rolled into one!  The best part, it's only $9 USD!

Eyelids:
WOW!  That's really inexpensive for something that works as well as you claim it to work.  But I really need to be the judge of that.  Hey! Right Hand!

Right Hand:
I'm workin' over here!  Whaddya want?

Eyelids:
Could you lay some of that Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy Eyeshadow Primer on me?

Right Hand:
Which one?

Eyelids:
The Mox-E-Poxy! Duh!

Right Hand:
I KNOW you mean the Mox-E-Poxy. I meant which color?  You have three to choose from. There's Foxy, Moxie, and Roxy.

Eyelids:
BRAIN!  You didn't tell me I had THREE to choose from. That's freakin awesome!

Brain:
Yes. Well, you didn't really give me time to explain. But yes. there are three shades.  
Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy in Foxy

Foxy which looks like the Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance color. It comes out a light peach color but is practically transparent and matte once blended on you.  

Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy in Moxie

Then there is Moxie. This dark brown grey primer can double as a creme eyeshadow and can be layered to increase the color.  You can also use it as a base for a smoky eye which just makes smoking out dark shadows even easier and intensifies the color.  This was the gunmetal shade that Stars Makeup Haven customers voted for.
Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy in Roxie

Last, but certainly not least, is Roxy.  This golden peach champagne color is an excellent boost under your shadows to add a hint of shimmer and depth to your shadows.  It also makes a great all over color as a creme eyeshadow. The Ear tells me it's a best seller.

Eyelids:
OK. I'm actually excited to try these.  But you know I HATE when I get creases.  I'm still a bit hesitant.

Brain:
Well you don't have to worry with the Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy. Not only will it hold your shadow in place all day long, it prevents creasing and fading.  It also works well with some glittery shadows to really cling to that glitter and keep it in place all day.

Eyelids:
I'll just have to try for myself.

Nose:
Hey Eyelids.  Just wanted to let you know that I don't detect any odor from these Eyeshadow Primers.  They seem to be almost scent free.  Oh and do you think you could ask Left Hand to scratch me for a sec?

Brain:
I'll take care of that, Nose. 
So are you ready to try it Eyelids?

Eyelids:
You bet I am. I'll let you know how it worked out for me at the end of the day.

~12 hours later~

Eyelids:
Brain! Brain!  Guess what?

Brain:
Not another stye?  Ugh.

Eyelids:
No silly! It's been 12 hours and my eyeshadow, the one that likes to crease by hour four is still going strong on me!  It faded slightly but the contour crease color is just as vibrant as when Right Hand applied it 12 hours ago.  This Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy rocks!

Brain:
Oh I'm so glad you like it!  Did you try it out on it's own, wearing Moxie and Roxy as shadows?

Eyelids:
I sure did.  It looked amazing.  I actually had right hand do one of me in the Mox-E-Poxy alone and the other one of me in shadows. Both of me look awesome 12 hours later!

Brain:
You didn't allow Legs to walk us out of the house like that did you?

Eyelids:
No. Of course not!  Who do you think I am, the Cheeks?

Cheeks:
Derp

Brain:
Whew.  Thank goodness.  So shall I instruct the Hands to type a blog post telling people that they "NEED" this?

Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy Applicator

Eyelids:
For sure. It's a great alternative to the pricier eyeshadow primers on the market. It works JUST AS WELL as the others AND it comes in fab colors that can double as a creme shadow.  Plus people would be helping a small business by purchasing from them. What's not to like?

Brain
Excellent! I'll get started on that right away.  Now if you will excuse me. I need to tell the Stomach that it is full and to stop eating.  The damn thing never listens to me!


You can purchase Stars Makeup Haven Mox-E-Poxy in three shades for $9 USD at www.starsmakeuphaven.com.

  1. I have to admit it--I've never heard of this company. I love the swatches--Roxie is gorgeous as a shadow! Incredibly inexpensive for a primer. My Brain thanks you for the post! x

  2. For $9 with two colors doubling as a cream shadows, that's a pretty good deal! I gotta say though, when I see "smh" I keep thinking of the acronym so it seems like a really disapproving primer

  3. Haha, love the conversation... :-) And they do look more than eyeshadow itself than as just primer. I especially like Roxie and Moxie.

  7. Great review. Great to know there's a less expensive product, too.

  8. Wow, these look great. Moxie is so dark and intense and Roxie looks like a great everyday color! :)

  9. If I buy Foxy and Roxie will I be sorry I didn't buy Moxie? Maybe breaking up triplets will weigh on my conscience and bring me bad karma. That's a good reason to buy all three though. Hmm, brain, what do you think?

  10. Definitely best review ever. These sound great and I'd quite like to try them but the international shipping cost is quite painful... I'll have to have a look round their site and see if there is anything else that catches my eye. xo

  11. I never heard this product but I am interested in trying it out. I am fond of trying out different make up products and I seem impressed with the colors and most of all the cost of it. can't wait to try it.

  12. I wanted to try this but the shipping is $7.95 on a 9.00 order. Too bad
