|Loose Powder in Flirty
- Available in a range of colors
- Comes in matte and shimmer options
- Pressed formulation available
- Fairly smooth application
- Some colors not as highly pigmented as competitors
The loose powders seemed to glide on fairly smoothly, especially when a primer was used. Without a primer, the shadows tended to crease on my lids throughout the day. Brighter colors, such as flirty, may require a wet application for a more intense color. Like many other budget eye shadows, these aren't as highly pigmented as some of their competitors. The shimmery shades are quite shimmery, and did bleed some sparkles below my eyes throughout the day. There are a few mattes available, but mostly in neutral colors. The loose powder seems to have mostly shimmery shades, but the shimmer seems more subdued than in the loose powders. The loose powder rates around a moderate 5 on the EWG Skin Deep database, while the pressed version rates a lower 2 (as it doesn't include retinyl palmitate). If you're on a tight budget and looking for an affordable way to experiment with mineral shades, these are a decent option, particularly the gentler pressed versions.
