A while back Elf had an amazing offer where you spent £25 [if I'm not mistaken] and you were sent that amount in make up products from their various lines for free.
One of the items I got for free was this Mineral Eyeshadow in the shade Trendy.
You get 0.85grms of product for £3 - they have a vast range of shades and you can get yours from the Elf website **here**.
The Mineral Eyeshadows comes in a small plastic jar with a screw on lid. The lettering /labelling on mine was slightly smudged - guess it is a minor damage that does not bother me as much.
The shade 'Trendy' is a gorgeous shimmery light beige colour which can be used by itself on your eyelids for a hint of sparkle [combined with a few coats of mascara], or it can be used as a base for smokier makeup looks.
Since this eyeshadow is loose I always tend to use a creamy eyeshadow base underneath, in order for the mineral eyeshadow to stick to it and have better staying power.
You do have to be careful how to apply this, especially if you do not want any sparkly fall outs on your cheeks. I just use the Elf eyeshadow brush to gently pat the loose shadow in place.
Apparently these eyeshadows can also be worn wet but I've never found a reason to try it out this way.
The Elf Mineral Line are 100% free of parabens, preservatives and chemical dyes.
Have you tried anything from Elf's Mineral line?
