Reader Edda recently started selling her own cosmetics line, EO Cosmetics, on Etsy, and she asked me to review some of the mineral eyeshadows. I told her to send me colors she thought she liked, and she excelled at that! The five sample colors she sent are all bold and vibrant, and they’re definitely colors I’d use in a look.
