I skipped the eyeshadow primer since I used Chrome Cryolite wet on my lids (water), and lightly placed the burgandy in the crease and outer corner. Champagne Citrine is a gorgeous yellow-gold, I found it to be incredibly versatile since I’ve worn it as a highlight color on the brow bone and also on the lid depending on the brush. It’s one of those shadows that doubles up as a good sheer wash if you think gold is too much otherwise. Midnight Jade isn’t done enough justice in the swatches in my opinion! I love the dark green as a liner, it works well wet or dry. You’ll find that even though Pur Minerals’ eyeshadows are pressed, they almost feel moist to the touch– but make sure to tap off any excess from your brush before holding it up to your eye! I’ve noticed that I get a little fall-out sometimes if I’m in a hurry or I just forget. I find that these tend to flake a little bit more off the brush at first than non mineral-based pressed eyeshadows as they are somewhat soft. The staying power was strong on these for me, 8+ hours at a time with minimal creasing or fading. Of course, your favorite shadow primer is additional insurance.
One of the things I like about the items from Pur Minerals that come in a compact is the little not-so-secret compartment on the bottom of the case that holds a sponge or applicator. It’s not only cute but convenient! Since I prefer mineral foundations for normal day-to-day wear, I love the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup (I wear Porcelain) and it travels well. Ever tried a Pur Minerals product? Spill it in the comments, dolls!
