Loose eyeshadows are great but if you’re not ready to make the jump yet, here are some pressed options. Pressed is good for travel and it’s true, they’re a bit easier to work with for when you’re in a rush.
These Real Purity pressed shadows are samples… they don’t look super dazzling in the photo but they stay well throughout the day and I’ve been enjoying playing with them.
They’re mostly matte, except for Crystal which is slightly shimmery. Vanilla is a bit, well, vanilla on my skin tone – it doesn’t show up much but would be nice on darker skin.
Real Purity single color eyeshadows are 15$ each and 1.50$ for samples. Duo eyeshadows are 16$ each and 1.50$ for samples.
Lauren Brooke recently came out with some pressed eyeshadow duos which look promising, but I haven’t tried them yet. I like duo eyeshadows – less to carry when you’re traveling or going to the gym. They’re 12$ for full-sized and 2$ for samples.
So are you more into loose minerals or pressed powders? I have a few pressed eyeshadows but I end up using loose more often.
