EVERYDAY MINERALS SMOKEY EYES COLLECTION & SWATCHES
I was so excited when my postman delivered this through the door. First of all the packaging, how cute is that. I felt like a child at Xmas as i untied the string and unwrapped these little gems.
The collection of smokey eye colours costs just $12 from EVERYDAY MINERALS and includes 5 trials sized shadows/ liners and a full size smudge eye brush which is perfect for both lining the eye and smoking out the shadow in the crease.
Here are my swatches of the products:
Sweet woodruff is a charcoal grey shade is mostly matte with just a sprinkle of shimmer
I'm keeping your CD's is a stunning deep green colour this beautiful liner is just brimming with sparkle.
Weeping willow is my favourite at first glance. It looks a little darker blue in real life. A deep midnight blue with a hint of shimmer and notes of grey and purple.
Smokey is a matte grey/brown liner which looks really deep and sultry
Postcards is a Medium gray-green matte eye liner which somehow reminds me of army combats and autumn.
I was so excited when this kit arrived that i couldn't wait to try it out.
I only had a tiny amount of mascara on, no liner so when this arrived i picked out weeping willow and using the brush in the kit applied it straight onto my eyes and smudged some under as a liner. Then i blended a little with my fingers lol
So remember this is just the 1 shadow and 1 brush. No extra mascara, lashes liner etc
The colour was so easy to blend i cant wait to try these out properly but first impressions are excellent. Do you girls have any everyday minerals products? and if so what are your favourites?
