Review Modern Minerals Eyeshadows

Eyeshadows $10.00 each for 2 grams or $1.50 for sample baggie.

Malabar, Bali, Seychelles, and Shambhala

Swatched without a primer underneath.

These shadows are absolutely gorgeous!

Malabar is a rich, brown with lots of gold shimmer. Malabar is the most pigmented of the four shades.

Bali is amazing on brown eyes! Bali is a light, shimmery golden-green.

Seychelles is such a unique color! Seychelles is a  shimmery cream color in the jar, but when applied it has a beautiful violet duochrome.

Shambhala is a really pretty, wearable, shimmery blue!

These shadows blend well, and wear well even without a primer (though I usually use an eyeshadow primer for maximum wear.)

The main concern with mineral eyeshadows is fallout, but surprisingly I didn't experience much fallout with these. Far less than most loose shadows. 

Aside from Malabar these shadows are on the medium-sheer side, but can easily be built up, used wet or enhanced further by using a primer.

My personal preference is to use them as is because I love that they're very sparkly rather than intense color. I like that I can wear bright eyeshadow without looking like.. well, you know where I'm going with this..
Sorry Mimi, it had to be said!
