Here are my reviews and color swatches of Everyday Minerals Mineral Eyeshadow in various shades of pink, plum, and purple.
1 – Jane Eyre Shimmer Eyeshadow – A light beige with dusty rose undertones and silver shimmer. I like this color as a base shade. Pigment applies evenly. I don’t know if this is a limited edition shade or not.
2 – Lip Lock Pearl Eyeshadow – A light peachy pink with silver shimmer. It applies evenly.
3 – On The Phone Pearl Eyeshadow – A pale brown with pink undertones and silver shimmer. Makes a nice base shade.
4 – Laptop Pearl Eyeshadow – Reddish plummy brown with lots of silver shimmer. When applied wet, this shade gives a foil look. I experience “fall-out” with this shade when worn without a base.
5 – Hipster Hippo Pearl Eyeshadow – A purpley taupe brown with minimal silver shimmer. This color looks amazing with my blue eyes. It applies evenly.
6 – Diary Shimmer Eyeshadow – This is my favorite Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow shade. It’s a dusty lilac taupe with lots of pink shimmer. It is a beautiful color, bold, but natural enough for day wear. It applies evenly.
7 – Shopping Spree Pearl Eyeshadow – A dusty plum with lots of green shimmer. This is a pretty shade to wear in the crease. Blends easily. This is another one of my favorites. This is like an ideal color for green eyes. It’s a purple with complimenting green “chrome”. It reminds me of a mineral version of Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Lounge.
8 – Heart 2 Shop Pearl Eyeshadow – A pearly dusty medium plum. Applies evenly when blended in crease.
9 – Live Austin Live Shimmer Eyeshadow – A medium iris purple with tons of gold shimmer. The most beautiful in the container out of this batch, but an awful formula! Such a bummer. This color looks awesome but applies splotchy and won’t blend. I’m so happy I didn’t buy the full-size. I think this is a limited edition shade. Good. It shouldn’t of exsisted in the first place. I don’t like it but it is no worse than NARS Strada Eyeshadow. It takes an OK swatch but is impossible to work with.
Here’s a look I did using a few of the shades listed above. I applied On The Phone from lash line to brows. I applied Diary from lash line to crease. In the crease, I blended Shopping Spree. I also applied this shade on the bottom lash line with a small shadow brush. In the inner corner, I applied Laptop. I also applied this shade to the bottom inner lash line for “light”. I applied MAC Fluidline in Macroviolet to the top lash line. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Rimmel Extra Super Lash Waterproof Mascara to top and bottom lashes.
These purple/plum/pink shades should make green and hazel eyes pop. I also see these shades working well with blondes or lighter brown hair colors.
Everyday Minerals Mineral Eyeshadow retail for $7 for the “tub” and $4.50 for a travel roll-on. The samples featured above are no longer available. These shadows are only available at Everyday Minerals.
