What it does:
MicaBeauty Mineral Eyeshadows are extremely gentle, free of preservatives, chemicals, dyes, talc, oils, and other fillers. With this unique formula, the eyeshadows will look ultra smooth and stay put for hours without creasing or pulling the delicate eye area. Can be mixed with clear lip-gloss, clear mascara, and clear nail polish to add pigment to lips, eyelashes and nails!
I am a fan of mineral shadows, so I was excited to receive this one. They are natural and chemical free!!!! I normally get them from Etsy and sadly the quality really varies.
I was curious how my Etsy finds would hold up next to a larger line.
I used it with my NYX HD Primer and NYX Natural Pallette. I like to put on a base of a light shadow before i apply any minerals. I feel like that helps to adhere it better to my eye lids and also makes the color pop more.
I was surprised how much color pay off this gave me. The best I have experienced to date!!! (And I have a small army of mineral shadows in my collection)
The color isn’t super shimmery and it can easily be worn to work if applied with a light hand. As you can see from the pictures above, it really is very light on the skin. It looks a lot darker in the pot than when applied. However, it builds well so you can go darker. It also works well over a darker shadow to add extra dimension.
It lasted all night, and the color didn’t fade.
These retail for $14.95 USD, so they are not super cheap but aren’t super expensive. If you’ve never used mineral shadows before, these will last you a while.
I wish they had more colors in their collection!! They do however have couple of pinks and a green I like. I’m also curious about using them on the lips to add more dimension. This is where the pinks would come in handy.
Sidenote to Kassi – you may be really interested in this one.
Go get you some, girl!
