I love to play around with eye shadows and I was happy to receive this full size quad in my True Beauty Box this month. Pressed natural mineral shadows are something of a rarity, I’ve noticed. These colours are great for any colour of eye to give a natural look. There’s a reason why most wedding makeup artists reach for this range of colours. Just sayin’.
I have swatched the colours on my hand for the photo. As you can see they are all very light but they aren’t chalky. I like that they are matte which, again, helps to give that natural look. The colours blend very easily with each other and don’t yield a lot of fall out. As for staying power, you need to use a primer or a base oil otherwise it’ll be pretty much gone by lunch time. I tried using a little jobjoba oil on my lids prior to applying and it made a world of difference. I still needed to touch things up after dinner, but that’s much better than having it all fall down on my cheeks by lunch! I can see myself using this palette often for an everyday look but for evening I would definitely want to punch up the colour a little bit more than these shadows allow.
