I received a sizeable assortment
of Mineral Fusion Cosmetics to review. Today, I want to share my
feelings on four of their Eye Shadow Trios I tested for this ongoing
review series with Diversity, Stunning, Espresso Gold, and Sultry.
The images on the company’s website can hardly do justice
to show off the colors of these palettes when you see them before you. All
four compacts held versatile combinations that were very wearable without being
over the top. You could easily wear these to the office and then
reinvent your look for after work with a little experimentation and heavier
application, in some instances.
From left to right in the photo below is Diversity
(a vivid plum, a shimmering pink, and a matte taupe), Stunning (gleaming
set of chocolate brown, cream, and a caramel), Espresso Gold (shimmering
gold, matte beige, and a dark chocolate), and ending with Sultry (deep
matte charcoal, shimmering silver, and a matte cream).

The colors were rich, nicely pigmented and blended
wonderfully with lid color, highlight, and a crease shade. First of all,
the formula is gentle and didn’t irritate my sensitive allergy prone eyes.
In addition, these shadows clung beautifully without creasing for a good part of
The talc free-formula didn’t look powdery or litter my
eyes with chunks of sparkle just a becoming shimmer or smooth matte color.
The reason for this velvet quality your lids seem to take on could be because of
pomegranate, white tea, red tea and sea kelp. The
skin-soothing botanicals also were designed to help
with anti-aging as they defend against free radical damage.
I swatched the shades in the next photo. At the top
of my wrist are the three colors of: Diversity, then Sultry,
Espresso Gold, and finishing with my favorite set, Stunning.

You can’t go wrong with Stunning because it is a
great neutral choice when it comes to sizzling warm browns. However, Sultry,
was a close tie and striking with that haunting soft deep gray and silver
against cream for doing more subtle smoky eyes. I do plan on checking
more of those palettes out soon because they made an excellent impression on me.
Five other Eye Shadow Trio palettes are available
and retail for $24.99 each. The next time you need eye shadows, I do
recommend these. Find them at Whole Foods Markets or other health food stores or visit Mineral Fusion.
