Beauty Discovery: Obsessed Minerals Pressed Eye Shadow Reviews and Swatches

Just so you know I've always been a self proclaimed lover of shimmer and sparkle. I find absolutely nothing wrong with that either nor will I apologize for. Bring on the disco glitter baby!

But wait...

I am trying to mend my ways. Shimmer is much like alcohol one needs a support group and a step program to help with the addiction.

Until I can get myself off the shimmer kick I've been on for the past 150 years of my life I'll go ahead and indulge my need for intensely pigmented shimmery shades of shadow from my latest Beauty Discovery, Obsessed Minerals.

Loves it!

Check it after the jump.

Obsessed Minerals carries a large range of mineral powders, shadows, lip products, item I'm partial to are their pressed mineral eye shadows. First off they have a wide range of color variety in the pressed format for a mere $10 bucks...hello inexpensive makeup! If that isn't enough they also take anything from there normal range of loose mineral eye shadow and will press it for you for an extra dollar, is that not the coolest thing ever? God, I wish more companies would do that as the chore of pressing piggies, as we established already, is not a job I relish!

The shadows are loosely packed presses which makes the formula into this creamy powdery texture. This formula in fact makes them very easy to blend and wear. The colors are all richly pigmented and about one swipe with get you extreme color pay off. They aren't what I would call pretty packaging wise or formula wise but the quality is there that's for sure. The shadows are quite easy to work with aside from a tiny bit of fall out but proper prepping and priming will ease the way. I tried three shades total and I must say for $10 bucks it's a real steal. The shades all work well wet or dry.

The shades I tried were Gotcha, Wanderlust, and Pagan. These all have an intense shimmer finish. Gotcha is a pretty copper penny shade, Wanderlust is a dirty gold, and Pagan is a sparkling royal purple. My swatches below are one swipe, one single swipe. As you can see they are seriously pigmented shadows!

The inexpensive price tag and ability to request loose shades be pressed make Obsessed Minerals a unique beauty discovery. I love the idea of browsing loose shades of pigment and have the option of someone else slaving over a press for me. Overall, Obsessed Minerals is worthy of a check out.

Loving all over it!

Hi Muse, I follow your blog keenly and you never fail to amaze me with the many pretty headbands that you seem to have in all colours to match whatever outfit you are wearing!

Anyway, I think Gotcha suits you better. It brings out your eyes!
