EO Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Eyeshadows

Purple, Pink, Delightful, Mermaid, Blue, Teal

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. My favorite was Mermaid, which is a pastel-ish like teal with a slightly golden shimmer. Mineral eyeshadows work best wet, in my experience, because otherwise they just fall out everywhere since they’re loose. I pretty much treat them like MAC pigments, though EO’s are very finely milled, so they almost feel wet when you use them. Each color I tried was incredibly pigmented, which is a huge plus.  Pink is a shade I’ve always wanted, but I haven’t found this shade as pigmented as EO’s.

How do you feel about mineral eyeshadows? Do you use them? Have you ever tried them?

I’m a fan if mineral e/s.

There is a kiosk in the mall that I frequent and they sell a line called Secret Minerals. I bought 6 shadows from them and I really like them. Very pigmented.

I like these colors that your friend has had you review, especially the 1st and 3rd, they look a bit sheer though, do they get better when you pack them on?

What do you find works best in terms of application?

I didn’t pack them on, it’s just one swipe (kind of like MAC pigments, where one swipe isn’t necessarily as bold as it would look in a look).

Mermaid and Delightful looks really pretty.
I’ve never used Mineral Eye Shadow but my cousin lives by it. Maybe I will probably try them eventually.

I am a HUGE fan of mineral eyeshadows!! My favorite brand is Fyrinnae. Their colors are unbelievable and everything is super affordable. I like anything that is good (or at least not bad!) for my skin. The only problem is that fallout is INFURIATING and can really make a mess. I’ve just had to train myself to do the whole concealer/foundation thing AFTER i do my eyes. But Edda’s colors look gorgeous,and I’m so glad that they worked out for you!

I personally am a fan of Taylor Made minerals. I put on a creamy base and then pat them on with a densely bristled brush, kind of pressing the color into the base before blending. I usually don’t have any significant fallout issues as long as I start out carefully.

mineral make up is good stuff they are skin friendly. you could even go to sleep with eh make up on your face do you know that!
isn’t that great……!
