There is no doubt that I have a huge love of eyeshadows, I want them in every color! So when I had the opportunity to review some mineral loose eyeshadows, I jumped to it!

  • Sandcastle - a matte tan
My Thoughts
These loose shadows come in plastic jars with a sifter, making it fairly easy to slowly pour some product onto the lid. I find that these shadows are very opaque--unless stated otherwise on the website, some colors say they are sheer--they are easy to blend and are buildable. Since they are loose shadows, one worries about fall out, I didn't have any issues, but I have the tendency to always tap off the excess on my brush--so fall out was no issue. 
The eyeshadows can be used wet or dry, which is always a plus! And I haven't found myself making a huge mess...yet! 

Currently, Madison Street Beauty is having a huge sale, 60% off select products. You can purchase a Regular Mineral Eyeshadow for $2.00!! Definitely worth checking out! And there are hundreds of colors to pick from!
 I love these shadows SO much, I went ahead and placed an order for more shadows and a few blushes. Anyone want a review? 

Swatches

Top Row: Sandcastle, Amethyst
Bottom Row: Burnt Copper, Posie, Eclair


Here are a couple of looks I've created over the last month!

Coppery, Bronzed Look
  • This look is extremely easy to recreate and so quick to do. I've been loving this look lately and have worn it several times. 
    • I started by applying Burnt Copper over my entire eyelids, messily, nothing precise.
    • I then took a clean blending brush and lightly blended the shade onto my crease, creating a fading effect.
    • Lastly I took Sandcastle, and swept that on my brow bone as well as dusting it with a blending brush over my crease a bit, enhancing that fading effect.
  • Super easy and in trend for Spring!


Soft, Neutral Look

  • I've been loving this look for everyday wear, it's soft, neutral with a nice coppery feel.
    • I applied Burnt Copper to the inner third of my eyelids.
    • Taking Eclair, I applied that onto the outer third of my lids and onto the crease. With a blending brush, I started buffing the color outward. 
    • I then added a bit more Eclair onto the outer third of my eyelid just to deepen the look a bit. I also took it down to my lower lash line, as well as Burnt Copper.
    • I then used a mixture of Sandcastle and Posie as my highlight. 
  • Another easy look, great for someone on the go!


Smokey Purple Look
  • My husband and I just celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary, although his crazy work schedule didn't allow us to do much, we managed to go out for dinner. Here's the look I came up with.
    • I started by taking the shade Mauve from the Lorac Pro palette and using that as my crease color. 
    • I took Amethyst and placing that on my eyelids, concentrating the color on the inner and outer corners of my lids.
    • Taking a wet brush, I packed the shade Posie on the center of my eyelids.
    • I placed Amethyst on my lower lash line as well.
    • Taking Sandcastle, I placed that on my brow bone and diffused some of the crease shade.
  • This look is perfect for an evening out!

Lighting was horrible this day...
