I've gathered quite a few ELF Cosmetics now, and their really good quality for their price. When browsing the website over a month ago now they had one of their many promotional offers on so I decided to pick up a few products that I havent tried. This mineral eye shadow was one of them. The packaging is very sleek and it opens up to a loose powder form. I apply with a basic Eye shader brush and I've on numerous occasions worn it all over the lid on it's own. It have glistens of shimmer through it but it's not too over powering. It reminds me of 'All that Glitters' by MAC but in a lighter shade. I find shimmering eyeshadows are perfect when your in a rush to just sweep all over the lid.
It is suprinsgly very pigmented and I love the application. You just have to make sure you don't pick too much on your brush, tapping any excess back into the pot. I can't wait to get my hands on a few more shades.
I've had the Mineral Booster in Shimmer for a while now. I've had to re use it recently due to my younger sister dropping my MAC Msf on her wooden floor, making it smash into pieces. I had forgot how good this product is. I apply my liquid foundation like normal and then use a large powder brush and sweep it lightly over it. I have dry skin so applying powder isn't too great for it, but this is so fine it doesn't cake your skin. Other loose powders I have tried have been too thick for me. This has tiny reflects of flitter in it as well but it's too over powering. As you can see from the bottom of the product I have half a pot left when considering there was 5.1g in it, it does last. I've seen they've added new shades/textures on the site now, so I will have to give some a try.
I also want to try ELF's Mineral foundation and concealer. And at the moment they have 50% off the Elements range, which is the eyeshadow and compacts. Worth having a look at...
