ELF Mineral Shadows


Aren't these colors gorgeous? 


This is my first time buying ELF's mineral shadows.  I was skeptical about buying their mineral shadows because;

1. I'm not a huge fan of mineral shadows and
2. ELF's eyeshadow quality isn't the best

The two colors I ordered were Golden and Celebrity.  Golden is a truer gold eyeshadow, while Celebrity is a paler, beiger, more neutral gold.  Both of these eyeshadows are very sparkley. 

 I received my items a few days ago and upon opening the jar, I was very surprised.  For $3 dollars I received a good sized jar of product.  I was also pleasantly surprised that the eyeshadows are very pigmented. It's hard to tell in my photos if they are pigmented, but keep in mind I ordered 2 shades of gold. 

Although the colors are already very gorgeous, I found that using them wet or with a great primer allows the eyeshadow to be more vibrant.

This isn't a proper review because I haven't used this product enough, but I am very amazed at ELF's mineral shadow line.  I have been buying ELF off the ying-yang but when I do order again, I will make sure to add more mineral shadows to my cart.

Has anyone tried ELF's mineral shadow line? What are your thoughts?

I own all the ELF Mineral Eyeshadows and I find that if you pressed the mineral eyeshadows then they become even more vibrant than applying it wet. I used Coastal Scents's EZ Press solution to press my eyeshadows and they're so amazing. I find the shimmer ones better for pressing than the matte ones and they last for a very long time on your eyelids.
