Review and Swatches: Mineralogie Lux Creme Eye Shadow in Rose Quartz

You know those things that come into you life that just make things so much quicker and easier? Well I have one for you.

For your knowledge, I am OBSESSED with cream eyeshadows, as a base, on their own, I will have them any way. They are my go to quick eye look product. Anything for an extra 10 minutes in bed, amirite? I got the chance to test out a new cream eyeshadow from Mineralogie, a mineral cosmetic brand that not only doesn’t test on animals, but also as a company, is very eco friendly!



First off, the colour is gorgeous. As the name suggests, it is a shimmery rose shade. And as someone with blue eyes, this pinky/gold/bronze thing that brands are doing at the moment is all right with me! I love that it can be a single colour eye look, or to add extra definition, I just throw a bit of a deeper shade in my crease. For me, it lasts as well as any other cream shadow, and slightly better (read as: less fading) with a primer underneath. However I’m very lucky that I don’t seem to encounter many creasing issues with cream shadows from any brand, so it may be different for you.


The next best thing? It’s in pencil form! I loathe packing cream shadows for travelling since many are glass packaged, meaning heavy, bulky and not helping my ‘one make up pouch only’ rule I like to use when I travel. This, however, sits nice and cosy in my bag taking up very little space (or if I’m sneaky, fits into a slot in my make up brush roll) ;). Which means I can fit more things in, happy days!!

Worst part? This is their only shade! I wish there were more, because I would very happily add more of these to my collection.

If you want to purchase this little beauty, You can buy it directly from the Mineralogie website here for AU$38 or check for a local stockist here.

Do you love cream shadows as much as I do? Would you like to see my 5 minute make up routine with this product?
