I was looking for subtle but shimmery lid colors and darker colors other than black to use as eyeliner. I had previously used Mac Intoxicate as liner, and I wanted to find a natural brand mineral replacement. I bought the Mineral Fusion Trio palette in 3 combinations:
Density: The darkest shade is a lovely eggplant, and while it seems a touch less brown than Mac Intoxicate, it's so subtle that they look the same - and this is truly just as lovely, if not more! I had though I might need to mix it with a dark brown, but I don't - it is deep enough that it doesn't scream purple. The shimmery shade looks like a dark taupe color, and when swatched it is like a deep, dusky shimmery rose with a hint of copper. The lightest color is a pale nude.
Espresso Gold: The darkest color is very similar to the darkest color in Rose Gold, but I would say this is like a very dark brown with just a tiny touch of smokey grey. The gold isn't very yellowy or loud, it is a paler gold, actually maybe a hint of champagne. The lightest color is a pale tan.
Rose Gold: The darkest color is a very dark brown - though very similar to the darkest shade in Espresso Gold, this one is a more pure brown. The shimmery color swatches as a pale pink that is a bit peachy. The lightest color is a pale pink.
All in all, I love these - the colors glide on and look very sophisticated. My favorite is Density, and if I could only have one, it would be that one. I am trying to play more with eye shadow, though, so I thought these three would be a nice way to start for a few natural looks.
