[review] PUREnaturalminerals Amazing green eyes kit

I had been looking PUREnaturalminerals amazing green eyes kit for a while, it just looked "so me". Now I got it but all of the colors are so light and matte, not really what I expected (especially because I'm not a huge fan of mattes). Some of the colors have shimmer in them but the base is matte, only Light Purple is more shimmery. The price of this kit (5x5 g jar with sifter) was 16 USD. No samples available, regular price of eyeshadows (not in kits) is 4.50 USD.


Olin ihastellut Amazing green eyes kitiä PUREnaturalmineralsin sivuilla jo pidempään, värit vain näyttivät niin täydellisiltä. Lopulta sen tilasin mutta värit olivatkin hailakoita, vähä-pigmenttisiä ja mattoja, eivät tosiaan mitä odotin (varsinkaan kun en suuri matta-sävyjen fani ole). Osassa on mukana hohdetta mutta pohja on matta kuitenkin, ainoastaan Light Purple on hieman hohtavampi. Eivät nämä kalliita olleet (5x5g sifter purkki / 16 USD+postit 3 USD) mutta tuskin käytän näitä enää koskaan.
Pigmenttien normaalihinta (ei setissä) on 4.50 USD/ kpl.


And the colors in this kit are:

-Lilac: "This pastel purple perfect for summer! It has extra Mica in it which gives it a light and fluffy texture. Perfect for summer days at the beach or for nights out on the town."
-Plum: "This grey/ purple is dark and mysterious. This shade goes on with intense color."
-Light purple: "This Light Purple has a creamy texture to it! Its not a matte shade but not a shimmer either. Just a light sparkle when the sun hits it."
-Viridity: "Viridity meaning green: green color or pigment; resembling the color of growing grass. The light green is full of sparkle and shimmer. It's sure to add some glow to your eyes."
-Seafoam was not listed when I wrote this



(swatched over Lumene primer, as usual)

Here is my EOTD with these pigments. I was planning to use Seafoam & Plum (Plum is that light greyish color on outer lid), but those seemed far too light, so added also Viridity & Light Purple. One of my worst make ups ever, I have to say :(

Ja tässä meikki näiden kera. Ajattelin käyttää ensin seafoamia ja Plumia mutta eihän ne näkyneet ollenkaan. Plum on siis tuo harmahtava sävy liikkuvan luomen ulkonurkassa. Lisäsin tämän jälkeen Viridityä ja (yllättäen) kaikkein tumminta sävyä Light Purplea. Käytin kaikkia pigmenttejä reilusti, monta kertaa normaalisti käyttämäni määrän. En ehtinyt aamulla meikkaamaan edes uusiksi... Yksi kamalimmista meikeistäni koskaan :(







-Detrivore primer
-Seafoam, VERY heavily (browbone & inner corner)
-Viridity (lid)
-Light Purple, this was the darkest color, VERY heavily (crease & lower lashline)
-Plum (outer corner, it's the light grey color)
-MAC Macroviolet fluidline
-Chanel Inimitable wp mascara

I didn't want to give up so I tried Viridity with Inglot grey, now it was more "me" :D
En nyt ihan kertaan voinut testaamista jättää, joten kokeilin Viridityä Inglotin tummanharmaan seurana.





-Detrivore primer
-PNminerals seafoam (browbone)
-PN minerals viridity (lid)
-Inglot dark grey (crease, lower lashline)
-Inglot gel eyeliner grey
-Chanel inimitable mascara wp



The shipping was fast and products were well packed. I liked the lip balm, PureLips in Chocolate, it smells very good. Not HG for me but nice.

Have you tried this company? Did you like what you got? After testing the eyeshadows, I unfortunately can't recommend these. The Etsy feedback is very good, so maybe I just was very unlucky with the color choices? Well anyway, I'm not planning to buy more.

Toimitus oli ihan nopea ja tuotteet hyvin pakatut. Pidin huulirasvasta, PureLips Chocolatesta, tuoksu on herkullinen. Ei suosikini mutta ihan kiva kuitenkin.

Oletko kokeillut tätä merkkiä? Oletko pitänyt tuotteista? En näillä kokemuksilla tietenkään voi suositella näitä. Kuitenkin palautteensa Etsyssä on todella hyvä ja tuotteita kovasti kehutaan. Kävikö minulla vain huono tuuri värivalintojen kanssa? Lisää en tietenkään osta.

  2. The slight incorparation of colour in with the green in the first look is lovely, omnomnom

  3. Seafoam seems like the boring version of Concrete Minerals - Detox. You should try that one instead, because I think that would look even better with your eyes, and is a lot more pigmented, if my eyes don't deceive me. :)

  4. Looking at their kits, their colour theory seems a bit off...Brown doesn't make brown eyes pop, blue doesn't make blue eyes pop etc. That alone is enough to put me off!

  5. Too bad these didn't work for you. They do seem sheer, even the colour that is described as "intense" seems pretty pale.

  6. All the es from the site look really matte with no sparkle or shimmer. These remind me of EDM's Easter Collection..matte grey, matte pink, matte green, matte lavender, and matte blue.

    Too bad you didn't like the colors but I do think it looks good on you!

  8. I like the look you made very much, the plummish liner is lovely. But the swatches make the shadows look a bit chalky which is never good :/

  9. I keep looking at the plum swatch and looking for the "dark and mysterious" that they claim it is! No luck yet, but I'll keep trying.

  10. Eplefe: I must order from Concrete minerals someday :D

    KittenMittens: I wanted to like these... Far too sheer, at least for me.

    Emybloom: Thanks :)

    Beauty's Bad Habit: That is so true.

    ScubbingUpWell: Yes, not very intense colors...

    LadyTee: I'm glad somebody likes it :D I'm just so used to colors. Haha.

    Becky: Thanks :) It's my favorite of these.

    Lillian: Yep :(

    Jaimi: Intense & mysterious plum would have made this kit much better!
