  • The sheerness enables me to control the shade, I like to maximize it more near the inner lids as it looses transparency going outward on my brow bones like a smoky effect
  • At the very least, I wasn't impressed by this product
  • It's a decent eye color though I thought it lacked a richer pigmentation and some improvements on the duration of its wear
  • It's an entry-level price for a good eye shadow but I believe this is a classic example of a glitzy mineral powder that I'm averted to, given the circumstances I've experienced
  • I will recommend it for light-wearing purposes and people who prefer a subtle palette, blessed with eye lids that don't get dewy

      I don’t have a strong affinity for mineral based eye shadows because of the excessive shimmer. The highlighted look around the eyes certainly brings a lift but there’s a point wherein ‘twinkling’ peepers no longer pass my finicky standards. I had heard last year about a mineral shadow that was regarded to possess some medicated properties, though I wasn’t entirely sure of the real score behind this product. I purchased this eye shadow called Nature’s Minerals Eye Color from the Body Shop. I was attracted to a particular color while swiping samples on the back of my hand. It was a shade named Radiant Graphite which appeared to have a matte or slightly frosted undertone despite being a mineralized powder. The stout pot also reminded me of my Star powders by Make Up Forever with the same black lid enclosures. I had known of Nature’s Minerals earlier, the skin

      care slash cosmetics range with its skin friendly mineral particles said to absorb oil. Well, my lids tend to go oily so at least I had a valid reason to buy it, rather it was just a petty excuse to splurge at that time.

      Radiant Graphite is a dusty gray color, a little pastel due to its light pigmentation but can be increased to a dense shimmer, or a muted foil. It’s far from metallic silver because the gray is quite translucent. Off the pan, the concrete gray changes to a brownish tone on my eye lids. I bet it’s because of the poor pigments in the loose powder, it doesn’t build a solid color right away and only neutralizes with my skin color. It takes some liberal dusting to create the ideal finish. But if you’re looking for a stretchable color, one that’s very sheer with sparkles then this can ...


      • do. The sheerness enables me to control the shade, I like to maximize it more near the inner lids as it looses transparency going outward on my brow bones like a smoky effect.

        It does get overwhelming at times especially when I wear it for long. It gets shiny, contrary to being oil absorbent. The eye shadow lasts shortly too. The sparkles become exaggerated when moist, like the color has been washed out. I can see a few shimmers migrating haphazardly anywhere close to my eyes. I’ve been keeping this for several months now and sometimes after opening the lid I see that the loose powder had changed to chunky bits. Although, the hardened bits will settle to fine powders once I dip it on my brush. At the very least, I wasn’t impressed by this product. It’s a decent eye color though I thought it lacked a richer

        pigmentation and some improvements on the duration of its wear.

        It comes in a small plastic canister with a built-in sifter. And I was even told that the containers were produced from recycled plastic, that was thoughtful of the brand. Mica and clay-variety minerals constitute the powder. This product is described to be free from any preservatives and is fragrance-free. The good thing is the price at 13 dollars, it’s cheaper than Make up forever’s 18 dollar goodies. It’s an entry-level price for a good eye shadow but I believe this is a classic example of a glitzy mineral powder that I’m averted to, given the circumstances I’ve experienced. I will recommend it for light-wearing purposes and people who prefer a subtle palette, blessed with eye lids that don’t get dewy. I’ll give this product 6 out of 10.
