Tested With Love: Overall Beauty's Mineral Eyeshadows
Overall Beauty offers a variety of vegan mineral makeup options and I recently was able to test out eight of their mineral eyeshadows, which, you know, I was quite excited about.
And my excitement ended up not being in vain since these ended up being some of the best mineral eyeshadows that I have ever tried. Read on for a more in-depth overview, lovelies!
This color was full of surprises. In the container, it appears to be a light, almost translucent pink. But, when I applied it (at least on my skin tone) it appeared to be more of a lavender. I did like this new color, but it definitely wasn’t what I was expecting. But, now that I know what it actually is, I’ll probably be incorporating it into my spring routine. Anywayyyyy, it lasted pretty well throughout the day, I was actually pretty impressed. 7/10
This was the perfect layering color. It wasn’t super pigmented, but it added a nice pink base to my overall look. This became my go-to for matte neutral makeup looks and my “no-makeup” look. The packing is very true to color. I'd definitely snag up this hue again. 9/10
BAR DATE IS MY FAVORITE! I am so, so in love with this color. It’s pretty translucent, but it is also very, very sparkly. It’s really good for giving a tiny touch a glam to a subtle look, but not so much that this couldn’t be worn for work or play. The sparkles are surprisingly very bright for the light pigmentation of this shadow, but I love the way it looks on. 10/10
This almost rose-gold glimmery shadow is beyond lovely. Pair this with dramatic brown liner and a nude lip for the most awesome neutral night-out look you’ve ever accomplished. 10/10
This is tied with Vintage Gold for "glammest eyeshadow." This pairs beautifully with a black shadow and a red lip (speaking of, check out these red lip pointers from Miranda). This packs high-volume sparkle and makes me think of golden dust. Wearing this is sure to turn some heads! 10/10
Missing Time is a princess' dream come true. It’s a high-volume sparkle navy blue that packs quite the punch. The shade pretty true-to-color in the packaging, though it is definitely slightly a bluer tone when it’s on. This is another shade I will be purchasing regularly. 10/10
This one is IDEAL for an uber-pretty smoky eye. The color is a multi-dimensional black and the texture lends itself to an easy, dazzling end result. 8/10
This one is absolutely amazing. It is deep, rich and gorgeous. I wore this to the beach and it stayed put shockingly well. 10/10
The bottom line is that this brand's eyeshadows are worth testing out for yourself. Oh and if you are on the hunt for MORE indie beauty shops with world-class eyeshadow offerings, you might want to take a look at Brianna's 3 Indie Makeup Brands With Killer Eyeshadow Selections.
