Fresh Mint

Hi guys,

Today I'd like to show you another mineral e/s from Overall Beauty.
It's called "Dragon Gems" & it's a mint green.
The Overall Beauty website describes it as a light baby soft green with sparkly pink highlights.

Their description is spot on, it's a mint green with pink sparkles that actually show up. Alas, my camera had problems to really capture them. This is the best pic I took (pls click to enlarge):

As with most mineral eye shadows, it works best layered over a base. Application was good, though a tad dusty, but nothing you couldn't deal with. The clue is to use a good brush - this goes for applying eye shadows in general, not only for mineral products. A good brush makes the difference IMO. I use MAC brushes, but from what I hear the ones from Sigma or Real Techniques work very well, too.

I did this look, using "Dragon Gems" on my lower lid (over a base: NYX "Horse Reddish") & in my crease without a base:

face: NARS sheer glow foundation in "Punjab"

cheeks: MAC "Amazon Princess" blush duo (lighter side).

eyes: Overall Beauty "Dragon Gems": on lower lid with NYX "Horse Reddish" as a base, without base in the crease. MAC "Vanilla" e/s to highlight. MAC "Carbon" e/s to line.

lips: MAC "Play Time"

nails: Rescue Beauty Lounge (RBL) "Recycle"

I chose to wear a dark green polish to match the look, RBL "Recycle":

Thanks for looking!
