Earthen Glow Minerals Eyeshadow Haul
Monday, December 29, 2008
Everybody knows me as an eyeshadow ho', so when Earthen Glow Minerals had a Buy One, Get One sale of their eyeshadows, I just had to grab some. The BOGO sale pegged the shadows at only $3 each so it was a pretty good deal. If you are not into loud hues on the lids, you can always opt to use these great colors as liners. Colored, non-neutral liners just make the eyes pop and really take boring neutral colors up a notch.
These shadows were swatched dry without a base. Can you see how nicely pigmented these are? They really look vibrant as they are; imagine how amazing they would look on the lid with a good base or when foiled.
I honestly can't pick any faves because I love all of them! I can see myself using the lighter colors as washes foiled on the lid (or applied dry), or as highlighters. The browns would make lovely crease colors or shades above the crease to blend into the highlight color. Congo and Amethyst are amazingly beautiful green and purple colors that can work great either as an outer V shade or as liners. Polar Ice would look lovely as an inner lid color or to highlight the tearducts or the browbone. The browns look gorgeous for neutral looks. I basically loved everything I got. Can't wait to play!
