AMW Reviews: Human Nature Mineral Eyeshadow

Pressed mineral eyeshadow --- don't we all love the good benefits of mineral eyeshadow minus the mess?  I'm glad a local Proudly Philippine made brand finally heard our woes. 

Human Nature Mineral Eyeshadow, is it worth the second and third look?  Read on....

Pros
  • Cute plastic purple packaging.
  • Well printed manufactured and expiration date.
  • Comes with a good-sized mirror.  
  • Shadows work on any skin tone.
  • Velvety smooth.
  • Pigmentation is quite good, can even be better with an eye primer on.
  • The free sponge that comes with the compact is actually good.
  • All 3 shades complement each other.
  • Not much fall outs and it lasts me the whole day even without primer.  The shade decreases a bit but it was bearable.  (Note: I do not have oily lids).
  • No eye irritations.
  • 100% natural.
  • Inexpensive.
Cons
  • Only 2 palettes available for now, I wish they'll come up with more color choices!  Waiting for something blue, something green and something neutral!
  • If you are looking for "wild" purple looks, it won't happen in this palette.
Overall
For a mineral eyeshadow that's free from chemicals, I am quite impressed with the quality of this pressed mineral eyeshadow.  Great for sensitive eyes!

Tips
  • If you have oily lids, use an oil control eyelid primer prior to eyeshadow application.
  • If you prefer to apply this wet, make sure to wet only "one" area so you can use the other areas for dry eyeshadow application.
  • To prevent black eye look, always line your eyes with your preferred liquid liner, pencil liner or gel liner.
  • Apply mascara AFTER eyeshadow application, the fall outs on the lashes can actually make your lashes appear thicker when you apply mascara afterwards.
  • Apply in various ways, using the free sponge applicator or brushes.
  • You do not need to use all 3 shades at once, you can mix and match and see which combination works for you.
Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?

Anyone who likes the combination of pink and violet eyeshadow.  The shades are not "in your face" black eye look, it gives out a nice warm color with a sheen.

Where to purchase and how much?

Priced at Php325.00 (approx $7.50) at Human Nature dealers and branches and in all Beauty Bar outlets in metro Manila.  Check out their site www.humanheartnature.com or call (632) 931-5787 for nearest Human Nature branch.

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
