I love this eyeshadow! It gives a sheer, sparkly wash of gold that's buildable. Does not fade throughout the day. Usually I just swipe my finger on the lid's underside for the powder and onto my lids. The powder never spills out, though it would seem that way. :)

I love this eyeshadow! I'd been searching for just the right gold eyeshadow, which is hard for me because I'm fair, cool skinned and usually I go for cooler eyeshadow colors. This is just brown/bronze enough that it totally works. It's super shimmery too and goes on really well with an eyeshadow brush. I usually just dust it all over my lid. It's great!

Edit: I'd like to add that recently I've been applying this wet and it works beautifully, almost like another eyeshadow entirely.

I have to say, if you love mineral makeup, then def give Elf a shot or if you are like me & are interested in mineral makeup but dont want to spend a fortune or just want some beautiful eyeshadows, the Elf Mineral Eyeshadows are gorgeous!
The Elf Mineral Eyeshadows are only available online on the eyeslipsface website under the mineral eye section. I have seen various sets at Big Lots, Target & Kmarts but where you will find the whole collection is online. I wish they'd bring the range to Target stores as well since who wants to pay extra shipping? The price for each shadow is $3- which i think is a great price considering you get tons of shadow but ive collected most of mine with sales/discounts esp the one they have rarely where you can 10 free mineral shadows with an order-eh? Heck ya! But even at regular price, its not too bad!
The Elf mineral shadows are a great mineral makeup. According to the Elf site: "Bring a touch of natural beauty to your eyes with these soft, translucent shades that add subtle highlights for daytime or increased drama for night. With key vitamins A, B, C & E these eyeshadows hydrate and minimize the appearance of fine lines. Available in an array of light-reflecting color options they can be worn wet or dry, together or alone, for countless shimmering styles and trends. The all natural consistency makes them incredibly easy to apply and blend for a flawless finish. All our mineral makeup is 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes." Golden is such a gorgeous true yellow gold. Its classic and can be worn alone on the lid or add any shadow to the look. Golden is a soft color, as its a loose metallic golden color can be sheered out or "foiled" for a more intense metallic look. Thats what i love about these mineral shadows. With one shadow you have so many options. Ive pressed some of my Elf mineral shadows & they are great pressed too! Golden can be worn with any lippie and can be worn all year round since its a basic, everyone should have a true gold in their collection. I love pairing these shadows w/ a matte crease color for a more toned down day look & for a more dramatic night look w/ a winged liner look! The formula is great! Minerals such work well for any skin type but we all have different skin so test these out first. I love the ingredients & that we all can have good makeup- These wear great as well! I def suggests purchasing the Elf Mineral Eyeshadow primer because if you pair that w/ the mineral shadows, these will stay put for over 9 hrs with no fading. On their own, on my normal lids, these have lasted around 6 hrs before i saw fading. If you do have more oily lids i do suggests priming. Even using a cream base helps as well for it gives the loose pigments something to grab onto. I love using different colored bases with one shadow to make so many different options! Golden is a great basic but if you place a dark base- it becomes a darkened gold almost bronze- beautiful!
The Elf Mineral eyeshadows come in a hard plastic container jar with a black twist on/off lid. They contain 0.03oz of loose shadow. There is A TON of shadow in these jars. I barely have made a dent in any of mine. Ive even pressed half of the shadow in a few & still have plenty left. The shade name & info can be found on the bottom of the jar- big enough to see. The lid has the Elf logo with product name. The only problem i have is that i have to pick them up to see which one is which since i have almost all the colors- which isnt that big of a deal. Once you open the lid, there is a sticker over the sifter top. I dont like to take the sticker the whole way off for it will allow all the powder to come up through making, what to seems to me, to be a mess every time you open these. So what i do is poke through only 2 or 3 of the holes. I do stores these in a silverware container so that they dont slide around. Mineral shadows are great to have but may not be too practical to carry around everywhere or on vacations. If you love the color, maybe press it! I do love this though even for a beginner i was able to use this-
Overall, these are great for beginners to anyone looking for great mineral makeup! There is a great selection of colors, mostly metallic sheens but some mattes. Golden is a great neutral basic but beautiful color to own! Def love it!

This is a orangy golden light bronzy color, very shimmery almost looks metallic. This color is very close to covergirl's golden sunrise, this is just alot more shimmery.

This is my fav from the mineral eyeshadows that I have tried. It is a gorgeous milk chocolate shimmery brown. Very nicely pigmented and gives better colour payoff when you apply it with a damp brush. Will last all day when used with a good primer. Been using it alot lately and am impressed with the quality of the shadow. Just hate the packaging because it can be a little messy and sometimes product can spill over.

Golden is a very pretty, neutral eye shadow that warms up your eyelid with beautiful specks of gold. I wear this as an all-over color wash with a navy or brown gel liner for daytime. It looks beautiful as an eyeliner on your lower lashes too. e.l.f. mineral eye shadows are a great value and a great product! My collection is almost complete except for the two new matte shades ~ I love these mineral shadows...
