Swatches: Black Rose Minerals eyeshadows

Towards the end of last year, I went through a bit of a lucky streak. I started winning some giveaways hosted by my favourite blogs. One of them was prettymom’s blog-versary and the prize – six sample jars from her favourite mineral eyeshadow brand – Black Rose Minerals.

I love little indie companies like Black Rose Minerals as your purchases always arrive with a personal touch so you know it was packaged with care!

I settled on the following after browsing the website:

Vixen – rosy brown

Sideways – copper with red shimmer

Teddy – dark chocolate brown with teal shimmer

Basilisk – moss green with silver shimmer

Miner Infraction – shimmery dark brown with copper shimmer

These were swatched dry – look at the pigmentation. Aside from Phantom, they glided on smoothly. Phantom seemed to just become sheer when you try to blend it.

I was given a code by Rosa from Black Rose Minerals for 15% off that’s good for two uses. Now, we all know that I need more make up like I need a third leg so the first two readers to comment here will get a code for 15% off their purchase from Black Rose Minerals.
