Never tried EDM eyeshadows before, so I made a purchase of about 8 or 10 'baby' sized shadows. The colors look beautiful online, but looks ARE deceiving.

These are right there with Lily Lolo eyeshadows in formulation and pigmentation. Very poor in both categories. The only one I really liked was Nutmeg as a transition/crease shade. All others …

Like a previous reviewer said, all of the EM eye shadows I ever saw are just to glittery. Too glittery to even see the color!

But I have another, bigger problem with them. After I first tried a new pan of eyeshadow, Jasmine Tea I guess, in a few days I got very severe cystic acne on my EYELID. I did not make a connection then, but I didn't use any eye shadow either for a while …

I've brought their foundations, blushes, and finishing powders; their eye shadows are the worst of their products. They have no staying power and are so, so glittery.

So I've given EDM e/s about as much of a chance as I could. End result, I'm glad all the E/S I have were free samples or part of a promo where they were given to me for free. I would be PISSED if I paid for money for these. It's quite disappointing because I've been a loyal EDM customer since 2007 and am a huge fan of their foundations, blushes, and brushes. I just can't …Read more

I once bought 10 sample shadows at one time as a part of some package/deal. I pretty much regret buying everyone of them. Oasis was my favorite color (it's a glittery bronze color) but it has absolutely no staying power on my skin, even with primer! I brush it on my eyelids and it's gone after I blink a few times. It is also very hard to pack on color no matter what brush or method I …Read more

Of the 30 shades I have tried, the only EM eyeshadow I recommend is "In the Garden" applied wet as an eyeshadow or eyeliner, and perhaps "Cypress" and "Mistletoe".


QUALITY
The matts are too chalky, the shimmers too sheer with glitter that goes everywhere, the shades too dirty to flatter fair/pale skin. The shades all have a "muddy …

I have really tried to like these eye shadows, but no matter what I have tried, they look like mud on me by lunch. I have very oily eyelids and I have tried using foundation underneath, finish powders, even bought a very expensive Urban Decay eye shadow primer - basically any suggestion given to me. Urban Decay helped some, but not well enough to warrant that much money for a primer. I loved …Read more

EM shadows go on better and last longer with a primer, however, even with a primer they aren't the most strongly pigmented shadows. That said I still really like some EM colors like Smokey Pink and Diary. I'll continue to use what I have on hand, but once I run out I probably won't bother ordering from EM again. Especially since they've gotten rid of their smaller tubs and …Read more

I used to be a strong supporter of Everyday Minerals. I still use their makeup, and I do love their base and correctors in general.

I've changed my mind for two reasons:
1) When I complained about the packaging, which I've detailed below, they never responded.
2) The new packaging for their correctors and eye shadows are truly awful. They used to come in small round …

I am kind of surprised that I have spent so much time trying to make these work for me. I guess I really wanted to fit the whole idea of mineral makeup into my life and I suspect that I am not a mineral kinda girl. Perhaps it's my age but I just don't want to spend this kind of time. It's like the difference between going to a self serve cafeteria (EDM) or being waited on in a full …Read more
