Indie-Pendent Post - Concrete Minerals Cosmetics

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


If Rock & Republic and Urban Decay had a wild child who turned loose, Concrete Minerals would be it.

When I saw the array of eyeshadows ($5.99USD) on their Etsy site, I had to get at least four!  I ordered Deviant-shimmery plum purple with gold sparkles; Smut-a metallic plum silver; Swamped-shimmery green with a touch of gold/yellow glow; Lolita-a confused green/gray/pink/silver color; and a sample of Strobelight-a light, shimmery sky blue.

The one that really caught my eye was Lolita which is described as a shimmery taupe with pink undertones but mine turned more to be similar to MAC Vex  or something close to it.  It is more of a green/gray on my eye as you can see from the picture below.  Not sure if the batch was bad or the undertones or will change as the sunlight gets stronger.  It must be one of those moody shadows.

Texture is finely milled powder that may look slightly dry.  Could be the boron nitride content which gives it that slip to spread easily but slightly mattes it out.  But it isn't matte matte just that satin based finished.  I suggest a good eyeshadow base for it to be as vibrant as possible and for a lasting finish.  Pigment is more than what you can expect from a pressed eyeshadow.  There are no binders or massive fillers to dilute the color.  You can always enhance the color by using a cream base in the same color family.

The size of the containers are the 10 gram size which aren't brimming over with product but there is an ample amount to last you a LONG TIME.  The container does come with a sifter even the bonus sample does also.

If you haven't tried this line, definitely worth a try for their array of funky colors.  Shipping is reasonable for anyone even international customers.  There may be a slight turn around time but like all indie lines that is to be considered and Concrete Minerals time is reasonable.  They do answer emails even if it is just on shipping so don't be afraid.  Great line to play around with!
