I received these eyeshadows from Erth Mineral Makeup sometime ago but didn’t experiment with them until about a month or two ago. Initially, I found the violet, sea & moss in the same order as the picture above too light for my liking but recently, I’m loving these sparkly shades for a soft and sheer hue.
I don’t like to use a lot of eyeshadows and I usually just use a dark green to shade the crease so these barely there sheer eyeshadows work well for me as a lid color without looking overdone. But they’re still obvious because even my 5-year-old noticed them. I also have the Eye Elements Quad Kit consisting of forest, coal, cocoa & madura which come with minimal sheen and these are great for crease contouring and works well for me as eyeliners too.
Actually, violet, sea & moss are part of Erth Mineral’s 7-piece Erthly Kit which include four other sparkly shades earth, loam, rose, & poppy and are priced at US$18.95. There is also an Erth Minerals Intense Eye Shadows Collection for those who prefer deeper and brighter eyeshadow pigments. I think leaf & river look delicious!
I also learnt that Erth Mineral has introduced new summer colors with four new sparkly shades: silt, russet, turquoise, & deep purple under the Eye Ethereal Collection as in the picture and you can get them for US$13.95.
Erth mineral eyeshadows are 100% natural and contain pure crushed minerals namely mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides with no preservatives, no chemicals, and no dyes. Some may also contain tin oxide & ferric ferrocyanide. I am happy with them as they blend well, do not smudge and has good staying power.
Except for the intense collection, Erth mineral eyeshadow cost US$5.25 each and comes in a 5 gram jar with 2 grams of product. That’s quite a bit to last a while but I do wish these eyeshadows are put in sifter jars to prevent unnecessary wastage.
