    In general, I am quite disappointed with loose mineral eyeshadows. I can deal with fallout (proven by my love of pigments) but I hate the pigmentation and the application just becomes harder. They just dont work for me. :/

    Face Front Cosmetic loose shadow= dissappear from skin w/in 1hrs and hard to blend.
    Coastal Scent loose shadow= no pigments on skin and dissapper too fast

  3. Definitely the L.A. Colors loose shadows. I have no clue why anyone compares them to MAC pigments. They are ridiculously subpar and practically unusable!

  4. Meredith

    I don’t like any of them. They’re such a mess. I never use them.

  5. Melissa

    I LOATHE Bare Escentuals loose eyeshadows. They’re messy, not very pigmented, and entirely too expensive considering the first two negatives.

  6. Sass

    All of ’em. What a mess. I already have to deal with pigments so I can’t see myself messing around with loose eyeshadows. There are way too many non-loose eyeshadows to play around with with less mess.

    I did not have any luck with NYX’s, sadly. I love pigments but these did not last more than a few hours, even though I varied primer/no primer and using different mixing mediums (and using them alone).

    pretty much all the e-tailer pigments. fyrinnae, the she space, etc. fallout, disappears after a few hours and all those 5 gram jars hanging around? NO THANKS!

    Primarks ones (UK) are really bad, but if i’ve spent money on it I WILL find a way for it to work 😉

    If they’re not very pigmented I use a black base like MAC’s fluidline and then pat it on with a sigma 252 and they suddenly stay and become super pigmented :)

    avon loose mineral eye shadow.
    it has the consistency of flour and it blends right off my skin.
    horrible pigmentation!
