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?

  6. Love, love, love EM! I use a base product for eyeshadow that gives super staying power: Monistat Anti-chafing gel. It's available at Wal-Mart for about $6 and is the same ingredient as Urban Decay's Primer Potion.
