Day two of my review 🙂 Younique Mineral Eye Pigments
This was the second product that I got to try out 🙂 Again Marie had all of the colors and she let me borrow them for an event that I was doing. So I got to drool over all the colors. We only had the 15 shimmer pigments at the time and that was totally okay with me (I love me a little glitter)
My first four colors that I bought right away were Devious (black) Confident (golden brown) Sexy (white shimmer) and Dignified (green). The Mineral Eye Pigments come individually $10 each or sets of 4 for $35 or 10 for $85. They also come in our collections, bundled with other amazing products!
I have always used pressed powders and mostly MK mineral brand. I loved the colors and options so I was super excited about these. 🙂
I digress though. Since I said MK I have to tell my story. Dustin and I were going to a super nice dinner with an amazing successful couple. It was a mentoring dinner that we were invited to. Well I didn’t have my Younqiue and just had my other products for my face. Well it came time for dinner after the day long seminar. I went to the bathroom and checked my face and to my embarrassment my eye colors had all melted to the crease of my oily eye lids 🙁 I had to wipe off the blended colors and go with out the face I made in the morning.
Dinner went amazing but I will remember my embarrassment and sadness that the fun and art I created earlier (yes art on my face :p) was gone.
I had gotten my Younique colors later that month and was excited to compare them to see how they hold up knowing my previous expectations. And guess what?!! They do amazing !
I have pretty naturally oily skin so most eye colors crease or lose all color with it half way through the day. Using Younique’s mineral eye pigments lasted me much longer and actually sustained their color on my lid! Yes I do crease when I don’t use primer. And it won’t crease at all if I prime and also use concealer as a base. But alone they take a lot longer to crease and when it does. It is just a small crease and my color is actually still in place.
Review: yes these are amazing! I love the color options. They last longer without creasing the colors are vibrant and smooth! I love the versatility of the pigments. You can dash our gorgeous (gold) on your cheek bones in the summer or even on your neck/chest area when going out. You can use heartbroken or sassy (red and pink shimmer) for your lips. You can use any of the matte browns for your eyebrow filler. Vulnerable or even sassy (pinks) for blush! There are so many ways to use the pigments!! Worth every penny! They last forever! It only takes very little to go a long way! Use them wet for eye liner also!

We also have collections that are grouped together to save you even more $
100% natural, mineral-based pigment powders consisting of finely crushed minerals that bond to the skin offering long-lasting, sweat-proof coverage. High-quality pigments that do not contain talc or other unnecessary filler ingredients. Apply wet for a more dramatic impact of color, or apply dry for a blending of colors or for a softer look. The possibilities are endless as you tap into your “inner mood” for the day. To experience optimal results first apply Younique’s Glorious Face & Eye Primer all over your face and eyelids prior to using mineral pigment eyeshadows.
Tap a small amount of mineral pigment into the lid, using your Moodstruck brush eyebrush swirl a little pigment onto the brush and tap the excess back into the lid. Brush the pigment directly onto your eyelid. To use the pigments wet, simply get the brush wet (damp) prior to putting pigment on the brush. Experiment and play with different looks. Using the pigments wet as an eyeliner works incredibly well with the use of the Moodstruck Liner Brush.
