E.l.f Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Review and Swatches!

Along with the Baked Eyeshadow Palette from E.l.f that I reviewed here! I also picked up a few of the new Mineral Pressed Eyeshadows. I only picked out three shades because I wanted to give them a try before I spent anymore money. As usual with E.l.f some things they hit right on the money and some things just come up short. These eyeshadows are $3.00 a piece. The packaging is sleek and seems pretty durable. It is a lot like the packaging for more of their studio line products!
 The first color I got was Wine Tour which is awesome. It is a purple/taupe color with gold glitter.
                                      This shade is called Disco DJ which is a light grey color.
 The last shade I bought is Heartbreaker. It looks like a dark brown but is actually a milk chocolate.
                                        The swatches below are done on bare skin with no primer.

So my final verdict: These are so so. I really like Wine Tour. It is a beautiful color unlike any that I have in my collection thus far. It goes on smoothly though it is a bit powdery and the color pay off is nice. Disco DJ on the other hand is not so good. It is very powdery and chalky and when applied to the lids has barely any color pay off. I was expecting it to be a shimmery shade but it comes off more matte. I don't see myself using this for anything, it really just didn't do it for me. Heartbreaker is a nice shade. It is a shimmery almost milk chocolate shade. The color pay off is decent and the texture is nice. For only three dollars I think the darker shades are worth the money. I also like the mineral eyeshadows because they have no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes. The website states "Our natural mineral formula is infused with Rosemary, Cucumber and Vitamin E to replenish the delicate eye area and provide anti-aging benefits for a more revitalized look." That can't hurt either right?

I will probably buy a couple more of the darker shades and see how they are but I think I will skip anymore of the lighter shades. Well yet again thanks for reading loves :)!!!
