Review: Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow

By  | 

Through the years, mineral makeup have had a lot of hypes and different views regarding its so-called benefits. For quite some time now I have been professing my love for Fashion, Style, Trends, Beauty and Makeup. I am very enthusiastic and passionate when it comes to these things. Which is why I thought it’s about time that I share my perspective regarding Mineral Makeup and sharing my review on one of well known mineral makeup brand. So what is it really about Mineral makeup that makes women rave and go gaga over it? There’s a lot of so called benefits which the same goes for other makeup. Some people claim that it helps keep their face matte, or it lasts longer, and so on. In my opinion it is just a matter of preference. There is one claim though that I really agree with which is “it’s natural looking and it’s like a second skin” according to Kerry Herta, one of Hollywood’s top makeup artist. I have used Mary Kay mineral powder before and I love it to bits! It’s very light weight on the skin and it’s like I have never even put it on. While some thinks it is nothing more but a marketing hype. That there isn’t much revolutionary about the mineral product as it is just makeup just like the other makeup as it contains the same mineral ingredients found in other conventional makeup. All I can say is that… it depends on the person using it. It’s obvious, one product may work for me but may not work for others despite having the same skin type and so on.

No matter what type of makeup it is, there will always be someone out there to purchase the product. With all the craze I have decided to go for a mineral eye shadow. The typical eyeshadows that I have tried are quite nice and some have exceeded my expectation. More often than not, it is very pigmented and easily blends with other shades. Except I have yet to try and compare it with an actual mineral based type of eyeshadow.

Just to clarify, I have only used a very little amount of the eyeshadow to make the swatches. Despite the minimal amount used, the swatches turned out great and quite vivid and vibrant. I absolutely did not expect it to be that pigmented! Its easy to use and with practice of “tap, swirl, and of course buff” it is easy to achieve certain dramatic looks. There is no such thing as a magic product that will heal and conceal our skin flaws. Correcting our skin perfection or at least camouflaging those will take a lot of skin products like primer, concealer, bb cream, foundation and so on. If you have any questions, comments or suggestion feel free to let me know and I will do my best to answer as soon as possible. Til’ next. xox

    Lagi ko nakikita mineral makeups, mas mahal nga lang sila ng konti kesa sa ibang type ng makeups noh. And I agree! It looks so natural pag mineral makeup ang ginamit, I tried it when I visited the makeup section on Grand Central before. And for sure other brand mas maganda.

    And really isang swatch lang yaaaan? OMG napakaganda lang, I love pigmented makeups pa naman. At ang puti mo lang sis! hahaha
