Back To The Earth EOTD and Mini Review

Hi! I will be doing this everyday all week. All the eyeshadows will be exclusively Back To The Earth (

) mineral eyeshadows and I will be doing mini reviews. Then over the weekend, I'll put up a cumulative review of everything in general.

Products Used
Base: Lumene, UDPP (bottom lash line), NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt

1. Sun God: It reminds me of UD Honey eyeshadow dupe, but it isn't as yellow and it is more shimmery. I would definately repurchase this! I think that it's a great addition to the gold family. There is a good amount of fall out, but not as bad as TF shadows. If you do need to clean up, don't put a base on the lower lash line. Wait until you clean up everything. I used it in the inner 1/3 and the innwer coner/tear duct ar color.

2. Golden Rose: I don't see as much "gold". I feel like it's more of a deep pink/rose color, with some brownness. This is unbelievably pigmented. I had to go back and legit, wipe some off with a wet wipe because I could blend the shadow up to my brow and still have some leftover on the brush. If you pack it on the lid a lot, it gets browner, but it does remind me of a rosy color. Assuming I somehow run out (in 10 years) I will be repurchasing. Just a thought, it could make a great blush color. Please use a light hand and REALLY tap off the excess. I used this on the remaining 2/3 of the lid.

3. Purple Dragon: This is more of a matte color for me, even though it looks glittery on the website. It could be a case of pot=/= eye. I get that a lot. I would describe this as a black inflused with some purple. It's not black, but it's not purple either. I think that it would be great if you don't want the complete harshness of black, but you don't want the intensity of a purple either. Again, so pigmented that I dipped my brush into the pot once for both eyes. I don't see myself using this too much so I think that if I were to reorder, I'd like this as a sample instead. I used it on the outer outer 1/6 ish.

Eyeliner; Sephora Brand Flashy Waterproof eyeliners- Flashy Copper- in inner 1/2 of lash line
Almay I-color eyeliner- Brown Topaz- Outer 1/2 of lash line.

Mascara: Almay one coat lengthening mascara
Estee Lauder projectionist mascara

Let me know what you think!
