photo 3The ultimate high shine eye color- hence the name High Shine Eye color! I seriously love these eye shadows. Super shiny, extremely pigmented- foiled metallic gleam! Simply gorgeous for those who love their eyes to glisten!

I used the Bare Minerals High Shine eye colors as full shadows and as liners- They were so smooth and spectacular. The colors were all so lovely- and really brought bold attention to my eyes.

-Colors from left-right~ Moonshine (Plum/Pink), Glisten (Light Golden), Frost (Silver), Patina (Khaki green with gold sheen)-

They come in a convenient cushion tip- on the go applicator but I did not find that the best way to blend the color. I used the cushion tip to apply the pigment- and would blend with the brush of my choice- depending If I was wearing it as a full lid color or liner! It was so long lasting- even without a shadow base it lasted from the morning until the evening!

I have not done many makeup reviews thus far, mainly because I have been loaded with so many amazing skincare products, and I am a skincare junkie; but I just had to write about this one!  I was introduced to Silk Naturals through my fellow Green Beauty Bloggers, and whilst calmly browsing through the site I found my self drawn to purchasing a large slew of shadows! I am really happy I did because these shadows are so unbelievably beautiful! They are so affordable and gorgeous that it makes it easy to make the switch to Natural! The Loose Mineral Shadows retail for $4.50 and come in 5 gram jar of goodness.

Another thing to mention is that the customer service was personal, speedy and wonderful; that makes such a great difference to me! They also give a little gift with every order!
I ordered mostly neutral tones since I seldom go bold with my eye makeup, and I seriously love them all! You can use them wet or dry; wet for bold color and dry for a more subtle wash. Keep in mind that the below pictures were the shadows dry, look at the amazing bold color! The pictures below give the shadows no justice! They are so gorgeous and I could not seem to capture their beauty in a picture!

1.  Shell (Matte Nude) , Sinner (Gold Shimmer), Blessings (Dark Green Copper Shimmer), Mazel Tov (Shimmer Light Gold) , Silhouette (Matte Brown) , Miss you (Light Tan Matte) , Kickstart (Grey Shimmer Bronze)


2. Bonanza (Twinkling Gold Silver), Colt (Deep Brown Suede), Forgery (Purple Chocolate Shimmer), Earth (Taupe Shimmer), Race (Teal Blue Shimmer)

If you love the colors but are not one for loose shadow because you consider it messy? Remember to poke only 2-3 of the holes so you can control the amount that comes out more effectively! I recommend using them with an eyeshadow primer to increase pigment, lasting power and prevent creasing. I truly recommend trying these gorgeous shadows. With so many choices, from matte to shine finish and bold and neutral colors, you will for sure find some that you love! These are a staple in my daily makeup, and I am going to keep ordering more and more! I simply love them!!!
