Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow Review
Picture of samples with no flash

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.

Swatches, flash on

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.

  1. Those colors look amazing on you. The purple & pink family is very kind to you. Me, not so much, but I wish it were so. My eyes are a weird caramel-flecked dark brown, so I usually stick with neutrals or greens. I do love me some o’ that Hipster Hippo, though. I can usually get away with taupes.

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ Purples are fairly new to me. I rarely wear them unless they are very dusty plums.
      If I had to wear only one shade forever in eyeshadow, I’d have to go for taupes. Give me an icy taupe or a plummy taupe and I’m a happy gal.
      Not too long ago I saw a peachy-pink/salmon with tons of gold shimmer, with your pretty sounding eye color, I bet you could do that. Pair with an olive or gold and I’ll bet it will look very effortless.

        1. Usually I am so good about remembering this stuff but I’ve been very taxed lately.
          There’s Fyrinnae Rapunzel Had Extensions & Sugar Skulls. I ordered High Voltage Cosmetics Kiss & Makeup, I’ll let you know if I like it.
          I thought MAC had one. I think it is the pigment in Pink Bronze….maybe Copper Sparkle which applies pink-ish on me.

          1. I was gonna bring up NARS- I used to solely use the Orgasm blush, and one day I realized it’s too dark for me. Or my tastes changed, one or the other. I didn’t know there was a shadow to go with it, though. I have the Multiple and the nail polish, and the lip gloss (which I hate because of the tackiness). I think it’s got too much pink in it for me. Do like the shimmer, but sometimes it’s too much. Lately I’m digging a matte cheek and sparkle/shimmer either on the eye or lip. Sort of related: I got a couple of UD glosses that are really nice, XXX Shine, in Heatherette and Baked. Both gorgeous, but Baked is this insane bronzy gold sparkle that I can’t get over, so in love.

          2. I’m going through the exact same thing! I used to only use super shimmery blushes, Orgasm being one of my faves. For the past year, I’ve been all about the matte blushes, pairing them with shimmery lips and eyes (something I’d rarely do). I think this is a good look for me. Have you tried those Alima Pure Matte blushes? Amazing.
            I love UD Glosses, good texture and I like the fragrance. I have Baked. Love it too. I wear it over reds this time of year and alone or with hot pink lipstick in the summer.

    1. Trish at Scenthive recommended them to me. I have had awful luck with BE and pretty much gave up on mineral makeup. I’m so happy I tried Alima too. It’s the most natural looking blush that I’ve ever used. I should order the full sizes. I went through the sample sizes before I even reviewed them πŸ™‚

        1. I think both. I seriously would of gave up on mineral blush and complexion products if I didn’t try Alima’s.
