[REVIEW] Krave Minerale Eyeshadows

Mineral makeup is definitely a product worth trying. As I've mentioned before, I am a huge fan of mineral products. I love it when new brands pop up and come up with unique shades of eyeshadows. Today I will be reviewing a new collection of eyeshadow from a Philippine brand Krave Minerale.
Krave Minerale Eyeshadows

The skin in our eye lids, crease and under the eyes are too delicate that due to the use of chemically-formulated eye shadows/glitters/liners/mascara will eventually cause fine lines, wrinkles, and dark under eye circles.

It can be mixed together to create your personalized shades. Use wet for lining, foiling and layering for dramatic eye effects.

To Sum it up:
I swatched the eye shadows by adding a drop of water to the product with a flat shader brush to give a better color pay offIt is very sheer on its own and the camera was not picking up the color. You do have to layer this on dry about 2-3 times to get the right pigmentation. 

Mineral makeup is not everyone's cup of tea. For me I prefer the finish of mineral eyeshadows than pressed pressed eyeshadows because its easy get the right consistency. For foiling the product (applying it wet) it gives the best color payoff! It gives a gorgeous metallic finish. You can always go for a soft wash of color on your lids, do make sure to apply a primer so the product can adhere to your skin.

If you don't own an eyeshadow primer then I found that using a white eyeshadow pencil or eyeliner works really well to getting the product to stick and last all day. Otherwise the eyeshadow will start to fade after a few hours. 

The 11 shades are all very versatile, each shade can be used on its own since it gives dimension to your lids. The only difficult shade to work with is Black Coffee, it was very difficult to swatch since its very chalky. Matte shadows have a tendency to be difficult to work with. The shadows are all similar in finish except for Vanilla Cake which has the slightest sheen to it, Black Coffee and Matte Mocha are both pure matte shadows.
- Wide shade selection
- Metallic shades are wearable.
- Easy to apply wet

- Matte shades difficult to work with
- Have to be layered if used dry
- Requires a eyeshadow primer
