Julie Hewett Hue Colour Malachite and Mineral Eyeshadows

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen!*

I am a big fan of Julie Hewett's Hue Colours ($14USD for the pot/$18USD for the pan) , so I couldn't wait for the Malachite to be in stock. This green is gorgeous and wearable on any skin tone and any age. Color-phobes will be able to wear this easily because it won't make you look like the green light at a traffic stop.

The color is a shimmery Jade Lime which looks great on dark brown eyes and enhances olive or Asian skin tones. For others, this is a green that is mature yet fun. It is a green that works all year round, day or night.


As I mentioned in my Hue Colour post prepping the lid area is important. Make sure to get rid of the excess oils by blotting and setting the eye with powder. If used as an eyeshadow, application can be done with a finger by gently tapping onto the eyelid area or a brush, then set with powder. For eyelining just dip the tip of the brush and swipe the excess on the back of the hand until you feel you have the right amount and apply.

You can get these Hue Colours now not only in a screw top jar but in pans and have your own customized set of colors. I opted for the jar since I like my creams to stay within their containers.

Remy & Vita

Speaking of pans, I did order two of the reformulated eyeshadows: Remy-a shimmery taupe almond and Vita-a satin cool toned dark brown, has a slight and I mean slight mauve undertone. The size of the pans are the average sized large round pans of 36mm and are steel which means they will sit in any palette that is already magnetized. No need for adding magnets. The formula is creamier than the old formula and applies like a dream. The shadows can be used wet or dry, alone or on top of the Hue Colours. Remy, applied dry appears with more of that warm almond glow with a a light smattering of taupe shimmer; wet the taupe-ness appears and also applies more opaquely. Vita when used dry it has a slight warmth yet has that cool undertone; wet shows up more on with the cool undertone.

If you haven't tried Julie's powder eyeshadows, this is a good time to try and for $10USD a pan, the price is great and so is the quality. If you are going to get the shadows then don't forget to buy the Hue Colours.
