E.L.F. Mineral Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

If you want to get your mattes on the cheap you might want to check out the new E.L.F. Mineral Pressed Mineral Eyeshadows. These three buck shadows are available in ten shades and are quite a lovely little beauty budget pick!

Tried ’em?

Do tell me what you think!

Jump ahead for my thoughts!

These are a pressed mineral eyeshadow with a semi-matte formula that’s, dare I say, quite nice. I only purchased one shade but I’ll be hauling a few more when I have a chance as I don’t mind these on the lid for no nonsense, easy eye looks. I picked up the shade Beauty Queen which is a pale creamy beige. It makes a great color wash for brightening tired eyes up or prepping for a darker eyeshadow shade.

The formula is a bit powdery and kicks up a fair bit when a brush is applied to the pot. But the shadow has a silky, easy to apply texture that has a smooth finish on lids. The shade had medium pigmentation with a tiny hint of shimmer.

The colors I’ve seen so far are all mattes or semi-mattes but all seem quite beautiful texture wise and on lids.

At this price you can’t afford not to indulge.

Add a few into your next E.L.F. purchase, I think you’ll be surprised how much you like ’em! Fair warning, the shades are all kinda mature versus fun and funky…!

    I just bought 4 of them & I really like. I have to use a primer to make them stay all day but that doesn’t bother me.

    I’ve got Miss Popular, Lunch Break, and Out All Night. I like them and think they are a good choice for neutrals, especially at that price!
