Fall Make Up Looks and Mineral Concepts Java Collection Swatches!

Labels: , , , , ,

Carol at Mineral Concepts was nice enough to send me a preview of her Java Collection Eye Shadows! These babies are amazing!!!

If you haven't noticed already, fall trends this year are forecasting a bronze, brown, or nude eye paired with a deep lip shade. The entire Java Collection (Latte, Mocha, Coffeebean, Cappuccino, Chocolate, Java Gold, and Tiger Spice) is absolutely perfect for making those dramatic, yet neutral, looks fall into place.

Fall '08 Make Up Looks

I am posting some swatches of the collection. The shadows are all in loose mineral form, and were applied wet (foiled) with no primer for these photos. Also, I used flash to pick up the shimmer and detail in each shadow.

Mineral Concepts Eye Shadows feel very lightweight and blendable on. If you are wearing mineral powder foundation, you might as well be wearing mineral eye shadow as well! These gorgeous shades look like they stepped right out of a coffeehouse on to the runway! The pigmentation is awesome, and they last very well also. I usually prime my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion before applying shadows, so I suggest you do the same to get the most life out of all your eyeshadows.

The Java collection from Mineral Concepts is your best bet for shimmering, sultry browns, golds, and bronze shades. "Mocha" is a perfect nude shade with the finest, most slight shimmer. I personally love "Latte", a deliciously cold, shimmering taupe, and "Chocolate", a decadent dark brownie-batter brown with hints of copper. Mmm... all this talk is making me hungry!

Check out Mineral Concepts NOW to get these shadows for yourself! At $4 each for a 3g size, these little sweeties are a steal. I promise, you'll love them!
