Opening the simply packaged jar of W3LL People Elitist Mineral Eye Shadow in Luminous Copper was like unveiling a pot of golden fairy dust. Upon peeling off the protective circular sticker that says “Hippie tested, Diva Approved”, a burst of fine, shimmery powder is revealed through four tiny holes that allow just the right amount of product to spill out.
Trying W3LL People Elitist Mineral Eye Shadow for the first time was quite a thrill! Would I use a sponge applicator or a contour brush as suggested in the product leaflet? I opted to use the former for more control over the finely milled powder. Because I was doing a daytime make-up application, my initial fear was that the highly pigmented golden hue might be too dramatic. To tone it down, I lightly dipped the applicator tip into the powder, the excess of which I tapped off on the inside of the jar’s cap. This powder was then applied to the other eyelid. I was happy with the effect; a highlight and a bit of sparkle achieved that bright-eyed look I was after. I was even happier that the shadow was crease resistant and maintained its shimmer throughout the day.
In the evening, I applied a second layer of W3LL People Elitist Mineral Eye Shadow for a more intense color, which ended up appearing more golden than copper. However, it blended easily and provided my eyes with a seductive glow under dim lights.
This little jar of color will surely boost one’s make-up arsenal and give one the confidence to achieve the desired look, be this one for day or night. W3LL People is a “beauty conscious” brand that I recommend not only for its desired make-up benefits, but also because it uses high quality, natural ingredients.
