Spin Cycle makes me feel like a sex kitten! It's a shimmery pale champagne pink that just goes amazing with black liquid liner. I use it as an allover wash, but it would also make a good highlight color.
By itself it gives a very subtle sheen and not much color, but I like to wear it with UDPP in Sin for a more intense metallic look. By itself it's not terribly pigmented, so definitely try it with a primer of some sort. The staying power without a base is so-so, but all (and I mean ALL) eyeshadows crease on me without a base, so I don't consider that a flaw of the product.
I got this in a sample size, which is a pretty generous amount for a sample - I won't run out of this for a while, but when I do, I will be buying more.

LOVE this eyeshadow! Its a soft pink. I like to use it wet for a more sparkled look. I love EM they are cheap in price but not in product! I get samples to try out colors and they last FOREVER! I think it costs $2.50. Come on you can't beat that!

Spin Cycle is very close in color to Good China but Spin Cycle is more of a pale baby pink and Good China is a more nude pink. Spin Cycle has lots of shimmer and shows up better on the eye but it is slighty pinker. The pink color is sheer and looks natural. I used w/ UDPP and it lasted all day.

I would describe this colour to be exactly like a pink pearl, with the same finish. It has a sheen to it with some sparkle and a very light elegant colour. I always use it as a highlighter, and sometimes as an all over lid colour and it is just gorgeous. Its great used on its own because it adds just the right amount of colour, or it can be paired with a darker contour colour. I like it by itself however. I will buy this again but I don't think I'll be running out if it any time soon!

I really like this shadow. I got it as a throw in in a swap and it has turned out to be something I use about twice a week. It's a fantastic base, all over color, or highlight for when I'm doing warm looks. It has a tidge of sparkle that is subtle and by no means overwhelming. It's one of the few eye shadows that I really do love and would actually be sad if I lost.
I'm knocking a couple lippies off for two reasons. 1) To get the full effect of this shadow I have to apply it wet. It can be a hassle, but if I don't apply it wet it barely shows up at all. When I do apply it wet it's warm and beautiful. But still, it's a pain. 2) I hate hate loose eye shadows. They're a mess and I generally don't go for them, even if I'm intrigued by the color.
I think I'd use this shade twice as much as I do already if I didn't have to apply it wet and if it were not a loose shadow.

This shade is very much like that of a pearl. In fact when I wear it I feel like I've just turned my eye lids into pearls haha.
Its a light color with a pink sheen to it. It's nice.

This is just lovely! It reminds me of On The Phone with a bit more pink to it and with some extra pearly sheen. It's basically a soft, baby pink. It looks really fresh on the lid with another deeper shade in the crease and lashings of black mascara. I can see this working well as a highlight on the brow bone too. I like to use my eye kabuki brush to pick up the colour and stipple it on to the lid for best results. I normally have to be wary of pink eyeshadow. Some shades make me look tired or beaten up (lol) but this one is very nice on my warm PPP skin (I'm Buff Perfect in EM). A new staple in my eyeshadow collection!

This is similar to Alima's Mink shadow, but is pinker. It looks beigey-champagne in the pot, but actually applies more pinkish and with a hint of iridescence to it. (Alima's Mink is more iridescent and has more brown, this is more of a pink shimmer on top of the champagne/beige but you see more pink). Very silky and easy to use in the browbone as a highlighter, or makes a perfect lid color with a darker crease color, and a very light highlighter like Chamomile or Floating Feathers. I love workable neutrals that you can wear all over; EM has several of them in their eyeshadow collection. I couldn't believe how pretty this one was when I put it on. The name sounds kind of blah...it's not. Get a small (sample) size and check it out...goes with so many things! Very flattering. Good staying power, I applied dry with an eyeshadow base (UDPP) over the whole eye area, I used my finger to apply in the brownbone; later I used it as a lid color with just a regular brush with UDPP first as a base and it worked great.
Highly recommend. Don't let the hoh-hum name fool you. This is one of their best.

I looove this color. Its a nice, simple, everyday color I can wear to work, or underneath other colors to make them pop for the evening! I like that if I want a little something on my lids to make me look a bit more awake, I can dip my finger in and swip a bit over my lid, and I look bright and awake! I love it, and if I ever run out(which seems impossible since the pots they give you are huge)...I would definitely repurchase.

I'm not sure why they called this Spin Cycle, except that it's about as exciting as doing laundry. This is my first mineral eyeshadow. In the jar, it looks like a very pale, shimmery grayish champagne pink. However, on me it was simply a colorless wash of shimmer. I did a nice neutral nude eye using it as a base, so that's something. It would probably be a good blending color. I will likely keep this a while, but I can't imagine repurchasing, and it's definitely dupable a million times over. On the plus side, I used UDPP and it lasted all day through extremely hot, sweaty weather, and crying/wiping eyes while cutting onions. Oh, and there is virtually no pigment in this product--not sure if this is MMU shadows in general, or just this color. Bleh.

I love this color for work and casual wear. It's definitely not a dress-up color. I like to look alive when I'm at work, but not girlie-fied, since I work with a lot of guys. I have to look professional, so an over-abundance of color is out. This is perfect. It's also good for a hot summer day when you want a little makeup on your eyes, but not a lot. I'll use this with Samba Lesson smudge-lining my eyes and go without mascara so I don't have to worry about getting racoon eyes.
It's a good color to blend with others if you want to lighten something up, too.

I found this s bit boring. im really pale and this doesnt really show up. for a very subtle neutral or base its ok. nothing to write home about.

Update: Will never purchase from this company again. Customer service is the worst I've ever dealt with.
Love, love, love this shade. I think it would be flattering on anyone and it works as an excellent base shade if you like to blend multiple shades like I do.
I don't have the problems with the packaging that other seem to have. In the bathroom obviously they aren't being shaken around so I turn them upside down and tap them on the counter 2 or 3 times, then turn them right side up and tap once to get it out of the lid and it seems to cut way down on spillage. If it's been traveling with me I just tap bottom down several times before opening. On the larger sizes of foundation and finishing powder this doesn't work quite as well but I just open them over my mixing bowl which gets packed along as well. Chances are I'm going to be customizing anyway, that's half the fun for me.

Beautiful pale peachy/pinky shade with strong sheen (no glitter). Delicate shade used alone and works well as an higlighter or a base shade.

As others have described, this is listed as a champagne shade, but has a good amount of pink color to it. I love this on my lid (I use it wet to make it a little stronger) paired with samba lessons (a chocolate shade) in the crease for my everyday wear. Brightens my eyes without looking too overdone. Also makes a great highlighter for brow bown and inner eye. I bought the large size jar so it's not nearly as messy as the mini jars and the product stays put in the container - the minis just don't seem to hold everything as well, but that's comparing to those containers without sifters.

I am a makeup minimalist, but after rarely wearing eyeshadow at all for a couple of years, I decided I wanted a neutral champagne wash for a pretty, bright, and polished look. I loved this shadow instantly. It is a pinky champagne with just enough shimmer - nothing too sparkly or noticeable. I apply it alone from lashline to browbone, but I imagine for those who apply more colors this would be an excellent choice for a base or just to highlight the browbone and corners of the eyes. This is my first experience with a loose eyeshadow, and I find it easier to apply than pressed shadow, but at the same time I think it's hard to mess up with this color. I've become a big fan of Everyday Minerals. The products are remarkably affordable on their own, but if you want to try more than a couple of items, definitely look at their Custom Kits - the value is fantastic.

This shadow is quite similar to EM's "Hot chocolate" but is slightly more pink and has more shimmer. It works absolute wonderful both on it's own and as a sparkly base for other shadows. I find myself wearing this almost everyday since it's so versitile. I always use these with an eyeshadow primer which means they last all day. Don't know how well they'd do on their own. The downside with these finely milled very pigmented beauties it that you end up with quite a lot on your face and in the sink, so it's good applying makeup in the rest of the face after applying EM eyeshadows, might feel wrong but will save you a lot of work.
