Remember my excitement about my Black Friday haul from Concrete Minerals – well, my package FINALLY arrived in early January due to the holidays. Well here’s the swatches from the mineral eyeshadows. I’ll be swatching the Pro-Mattes from the same haul next week (probably on Wednesday).
As you can see, I picked out three different colours – Bitches Brew, Arsenic and Party Monster. They swatch so much better than they appear in the jar, which you will see once we get to the swatching part of the post!
Bitches Brew – (Electric lavender w/ golden-orange shift) The new favorite duochrome! This shade is completely intriguing, which makes sense being that it was inspired by Miles Davis’ classic experimental album from 1970!
It was really really difficult to capture the duochrome nature of this eyeshadow! In person it is so beautiful – you can really see the orange shift as the light hits it.
Arsenic – (Shimmery red-brown w/ blue undertones) A deep, sexy shadow that also looks killer foiled or as a liner! Use this color as a contour, or try deepening a look by adding to the outside crease!
Similarly, the photos just do not capture the blue shift when the light hits it. It is gorgeous!
Party Monster – (Glittery golden-honey) We originally released this beauty as a LE shade for our birthday sale — when we heard everyone’s amazing feedback we KNEW we had to add this to the full line-up! Neutral honey with enough sparkle to brighten-up any night out, we dubbed this “New Years Eve in a jar”!
This one is really pretty, in real life it is more honey toned.
Below are some slightly blurred photos to try try to capture the duochrome effect:
I’m a huge Concrete Minerals fan, and have been for years, so these did not disappoint!
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
