Product Review: Body Shop Mineral Eye Shadow

Went to the Body Shop at the Seaport on my lunch break. (Who needs to eat lunch when there are stores?!) Bought yet another Nature’s Minerals Eye Shadow. Now it’s time for a review.

The colors I now have in my collection (4/6 pretty good huh lol):

Swatches (in 2 lights):

01 Platinum Shimmer (Silver), 02 Radiant Graphite (Grey/Copper), 03 Golden Emerald (Green) (don’t have/not shown) 04 Pink Opal (Pale Pink), 05 Bronzed Amber (Soft Brown) and 06 Molten Bronze (Chocolate)

Product Review:

Product Story:

Best if you want to: Accentuate your eyes with crease-resistant, blendable color that’s made from the earth’s purest minerals.

Best for: suitable for sensitive skin

How it works:

  • Mediterranean clay is an absorbent mineral that helps bind make-up to skin for long-lasting coverage.
  • Mica adds luster and has light-diffusing particles to help disguise fine lines.
  • Dermatologist-tested with no added fillers, preservatives or fragrances.

Review (5 highest, 1 lowest):
4 out of 5
Price: 4.5 out of 5 ($13)
Quality: 5 out of 5

Overall: 5 out of 5

My Verdict:
When I put on eyeshadow, I don’t always want shimmer, or to be too showy. But this one takes the cake. It’s affordable (4.5 b/c it can be cheaper – ya know?). Take into mind also, that The Body Shop has a rewards program, it’ll even out the price to be cheaper. Some more brownie points for the checklist?

It is – very pigmented – requires one or two swipes at most to convey the color you are going for. It is soft and light on your eyes. It doesn’t smudge easily, and lasts forever. Last but not least? Easy to take off! Hello favorite!

So ladies and gentlemen of the jury? This may not be for everyone because of the kind of product it is. However, if you wear shimmer, or like mineral shadow? Head on over and get you some!

Hey kids

In the month of February, I have been to two birthday parties. Both for cute lil’ one year olds. One for a girl and one for a boy. I find it funny that as I think about these looks they are both using similar makeup. Of course, of course – inspiration boards as well!

Take a look and tell me what you think. Don’t forget about the contest up above y’all!

Olivia’s 1st Birthday

As you can see, I didn’t go over one eye to match the hues, so you have a bright eye and a subdued eye. Oh well – I was late!
