Review of Everyday Minerals In the Garden by cksa
I honestly am not 100% sure why I like this eyeshadow so much--maybe it's because it turned out to be the only product in my most recent EDM haul that I actually was happy with. (No, say it ain't so, EDM!) When I first put this on, I was taken aback by how glittery it was. I'm talking MAJOR glitter here; the glitter was EVERYWHERE, it had major fall out when I put it on (I wear it dry and dab it on), and I felt like I was getting ready to go to a disco. So that I could be the star attraction. As the disco ball. "Oh maaaan!" I thought. "I can't go to work with this on!"
But... "But... the color is so nice..."
It's just your basic neutral brown, but it has some kind of tinge to it that keeps it from being too bronzy, too chocolatey, or too dirty. It's mysterious. I have no idea how to describe it. Anyway, it smokes out nicely, and I actually did wind up going to work with it on--and I've been going to work wearing it, and just this one color (OK, plus eyeliner and mascara and EDM's "Hot Chocolate" for highlighting--but you get what I mean), for the past two weeks. It defines my eyes in a subtle way, and the glitter kind of wears off in a few hours so that it just looks like a pretty sparkle. Alas, my dreams of disco ball-dom may have been short-lived, but my delight at finally finding my perfect neutral eyeshadow--and so cheap, too!--lives on. I bought this in the $2.50 sample size; I think I'll be getting the full-size when this runs out. IF it runs out, because I just need a little bit to get a lot of results. I just wish the silly shaker/sifter bottle container thingy wasn't so messy. 1 lip off for the non-travel-friendly container, and the initial Rainbow Brite sparkle power. But yes, I really would buy this again.
