Mineralize Me

Mineralized eyeshadows, i've always stayed away from them. In fact up until purchasing these babies i had none in my collection. I always heard bad reviews regarding pigmentation and so i always thought twice about making a purchase. That was until i swatched some at the Mac store on a recent shopping trip.

 First up, they look gorgeous in the pan. There's no denying that. A swirl of colours running through a main shade makes them look like mini galaxies. It's like they call out to you, swatch me Priyanka swatch me. So i did and i gasped. Man are they pretty awesome. No sign of pigmentation problem here. You can use these eyeshadows both wet and dry, and i was already impressed with the dry swatch so there was no doubt there that i was making a purchase.

Snow Season, Fresh Ice
The two that i picked up are from the recent Mac Glitter and Ice collection. I picked these 2 shades specifically as inner corner and browbone highlight colours as i thought they were just perfect for that.

  2. Mineralize shadows don't really grab me, even though some seem nice when I swatch them on counter. I'm more likely to be suckered into mineralize blushes;P

  4. Oh man, I completely ignored the Mineralize eyeshadows from that collection but you make them look so pretty! ;__; I regretted not picking up anything from the collection(s) so I ordered on Ebay afterward and just got She-Zam dazzleglass and the Sultry lip bag today. Waiting for the silver lipstick Eloquent Air to come in the mail too!
