Here’s my review and swatches of Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow in shades of blue and green.
1 – Bubble Tea Pearl Eyeshadow – A sky blue with blue shimmer. I usually don’t like lighter blues but this color is beautiful. Blends evenly. I see this working for blue-eyed blondes.
2 – Weeping Willow Eyeliner – A deep royal navy with hints of purple. This color applies evenly as a liner but splotchy as a shadow. This is a beautiful alternative to black. It works well in the crease.
3 – Marvel Denim Universe Pearl Eyeshadow – This is what I call a medium “country” blue with a small amount of blue shimmer. I don’t wear colors like this very often. So, I thought. After playing with this color, I really like it!
4- Leaps and Bounds Shimmer Eyeshadow – A light, warm lime green shimmer with tons of gold shimmer. This shade applies evenly. Looks very nice on warm light, warm complexions. It’s a beautiful base for all green/aqua eye makeup looks. This is one of my favorite Everyday Minerals eyeshadow colors.
5- Pressed Olive Shimmer Eyeshadow – Nothing about this shade is olive. This is a light blue-gray with gold shimmer. It’s a disappointment if you want an olive eyeshadow, but it’s a pretty shadow that blends evenly.
6- Juniper Shimmer Eyeshadow – It’s a greenish, medium warm brown with tons of copper sparkles. One of my favorite Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow colors. This is just one of those colors that works for me. This is a “fun” neutral. I see it working for all eye colors and hair colors. This is a beautiful shade for redheads!
Below is a look I did with a few colors above. From crease to brows, I applied Pressed Olive with a wide shadow brush. I applied Leaps and Bounds from lash line to crease. I also lined the bottom lash line with this shade, starting closest to the nose and stopping halfway. In the crease I blended the liner, Weeping Willow. I lined the bottom lash line halfway with Weeping Willow, starting at the outside edge. I then went over Weeping Willow in the crease with Marvel Denim Universe to add shimmer and to lighten the navy shade. I lined top and bottom lashes with Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Starry Night Blue. I curled lashes and applied Estee Lauder Magna Scopic Mascara in Black to top and bottom lashes. Oh, all shadows were applied dry and I didn’t use a base.
I really love all of the colors that I’ve swatched in this post. I think I’m going to purchase full sizes of all of them. (I can probably live without Weeping Willow because I have a similar color from Lancome called Garmet). These colors really work well with blue and grey eyes. And the gold shimmer in most of these make these shades work with warm complexions. So, if you are a light to medium skin tone with blue or grey eyes, you really need to try these colors.
These retail for $6.50 . The sample sizes pictured above are no longer available. You can now get travel friendly roll-ons for $4.50. These shadows are only available at Everyday Minerals.
