New product alert! Mineralogie just introduced their first cream eye shadow stick! It’s called Lux Crème Eye Shadow.
What is it?
The Lux Crème Eye Shadow is a long wearing shadow stick that comes in the color Rose Quartz (only one shade available, for now anyway). The color is a very soft mauve with a silver sheen. The texture is smooth and creamy, and the product glides on your skin.
How do I use it?
If you want to wear Rose Quartz as a strong lid color, you can apply the product directly to your eyelid starting at the lash line and smudging the shadow in a half moon shape so it’s higher in the center of your lid. Then use your finger to soften the edges. But if you want a softer look, you can take a Square Detail Brush directly to the shadow stick, pick up product with the brush and apply it in a sweeping motion across the lid. It can also be used as an eye shadow base underneath your other eye shadows (pressed or loose) to enhance the color and wearability, as well as help you blend your shadows together. Note that this eye shadow starts out creamy but dries after applying it, which is what makes it so long-lasting. If you want to layer other shadows on top, you need to work fairly quickly before the cream eye shadow dries. That way you can get your color on there and it will stick as much as possible!
Why should I try it?
This eye shadow is perfect for people with oily lids because it keeps all the oiliness at bay and your eye shadows will stay put! Absolutely no creasing! It’s also a great product for people with smaller eyes because the color really brightens the eye. But even if that doesn’t apply to you, the color is such a fun metallic shade that adds a pop to your look. If you’re looking to really intensify your eyes, this is the best thing for it!
What can I pair it with?
Use the Natural Eye Liner with the Lux Crème Eye Shadow. Because they both have a creamier texture, the liner will actually glide on smoother once the shadow dries. A harder pencil won’t give you as fluid a line. For a really pretty crease color, use Vixen. If you want to layer another eye shadow on your lid, use Champagne on the lid and Mulberry in the crease. Or you can go subtle and only apply Wheat in the crease. All great combos!
All in all, I love the new Lux Crème Eye Shadow! The color looks good on everyone I’ve seen wear it. Plus, it’s super easy to use. Pretty much everything creases on my eyes and this shadow has never done that on me, which is incredible! Right now, Rose Quartz is the only shade available, but I’m crossing my fingers that there will be more shades to come!
