Hey everyone! So I recently got the opportunity to try out some eyeshadows from a really excellent company called Mineral Magic Cosmetics. This company is cruelty-free and has all-vegan products that are titanium-free and paraben-free. It personally takes a lot for me to really fall in love with a company's eyeshadows, especially mineral makeup, because I find that a lot of companies don't make colors that are pigmented enough (hello, Everyday Minerals, I'm talking to you!) What can I say. I'm picky! I have medium skintone and I don't want another company making medium tones that just don't show up on my skin.
I wasn't expecting a miracle when I received these but boy was I blown away. These babies are PIGMENTED. They don't even market these as super-pigmented like Limecrime but seriously the pigmentation is, dare I say, better.
I took a bunch of swatch pictures but some of these don't even do them justice. They are stare-in-the-mirror pretty and it's difficult to capture all of the sheen, sparkle, and duochromey goodness of all of them. I will try though, so here goes! Top photo is by a light, and bottom is by the window. The descriptions were just my best trying to describe these gorgeous colors. :)

Aren't these colors just ridiculous? I love it!

I also have a current discount code for you ladies on a budget. If you use code springtime you can get 25% off your order.
I've been a little under the weather lately so no look this time with these, but soon! I'm planning on doing a really intense look for a youtube video with these, and I think it will be lots of fun. Maybe a rainbow, monolid look? What do you guys think? Any requests? Shout out color combos and maybe I'll give it a try. I can already see that old Hyori "Hey Girl" look formulating perfectly with these greens and blues!
