I gotta say that this Glo Minerals neutral eyeshadow palette and cream blush are sooo good! I mean, the blush is crazy pigmented, and the eyeshadows are smooth and silky.
After trying the Glo Minerals lip crayons a couple of months ago, I’d been dying to try more from the brand. So I did!
This neutral eyeshadow palette and vibrant lipstick made me think of a modern-day pin-up look, so for this makeup look I kept the eyes pretty neutral and added some punch with the coral blush (Go Minerals Guava) and red/orange lip (Glo Minerals Crush).
The Glo Minerals Elemental Eye Collection palette ($44) is the second neutral eyeshadow palette I’ve used and recently reviewed (my thoughts on the other one, this palette by Buxom, are here), and I really like it!
The darker shades mean that you can totally do a super smokey eye with it, but the shimmery eyeshadows are easy to apply for quick washes of color, and there are four warm-toned shades and four cool-toned shades, so it’s very versatile.
All of the shades are mattes, except for two of them, which are shimmery, so I think there’s a little something for everyone.
Here are swatches of the shadows:
I really like working with these shadows. Here I used Breathless all over my lid and Adobe in the crease and along the lower lash line. Then I added a little Henna in the outer corner for drama.
Also, just a note, but that the black shade, Eclipse, didn’t swatch smoothly, but it’s actually pretty smooth on the eyes.
And even though I really like the eyeshadow palette, I think the Glo Minerals cream blush in Guava ($26) is a bigger star.
Cream blushes are usually kind of sheer, but Guava is intense! The color is so pretty for summer, and there’s a cute little mirror in the compact too. The blush is small enough to keep in your purse for when you need a little pick-me-up, and I think the color is very flattering.
Now, I’ve already raved about the $16 Glo Minerals Suede Matte Crayons, so you guys know I also love these. They apply incredibly smoothly, and I think the pointed tip really helps to keep things neat. Also, while Crush is matte, it’s actually very comfortable to wear. Basically, Crush lip crayon is everything.
And here are the other details of my look: Pur Hydra Fluid Water Serum Foundation in Tan (review and swatches of the full range in this post) // PUR Strobe/Highlight Palette in Moonlight (The shade Eclipse is along my cheekbones and inner corners; swatches and review in this post) // Colourpop Cosmetics Cream Gel Liner in Honeydude on the lower inner rim (swatches and review of Colourpop’s spring collection in this post) // Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara // Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in Five // Pixi Beauty Glow Mist (one of my favorite facial mists).
So, Glo Minerals. Have you ever tried this brand? Any product recommendations for me?
