On my recent search, I decided to try out Red Apple Lipstick's Minx Eye Shadow. To learn more about Red Apple Lipstick visit my post here. Before we get to this eye shadow, a bit about my eye needs:
Facts about my eyes:
Disclaimer: This lipstick was sent to me for review. See my full disclaimer here.
The Product: Red Apple Lipstick Eye shadow Minx ($19 USD)
The shadows themselves come in a standard pan - meant to be used to build your own collection. Red Apple Lipstick does also offer pre-built palettes as well.
The eye shadow is mineral based - meaning that it is preservative free, and offers more natural ingredients. And of course, Red Apple Lipstick is gluten free.
Ingredients: Mica, Zinc Oxide, Silica, Ascorbyl Palmitate. may contain iron oxides, titanium dioxide, chromium, ultra marines.
This if a high quality shadow and blends beautifully. I did find that you need to work in layers to build it up, as packing on too much with one application does result in some fall-out. But once you learn to work in layers to build intensity you won't be disappointed!
Now onto the price - Comparable higher end shadows that come in just a pan usually sell for $12 CDN (such as MAC). This eye shadow almost costs double the price, which will not appeal to some makeup lovers out there. Personally, I think that given this is a mineral formula, and for those with sensitive skin - this is a definite buy!
