Product Spotlight:Boots Botanics Mineral Eye Colous “010 Velvet Green”

I was trying to think of different posts to do, and I thought it would be a nice idea to do looks with and review very specific products. It will force me to really use everything I have, but it is also a nice way to introduce people to new things and maybe even help them find a new holy grail product!velvetgreens

While trying to decide how to do my makeup today, keeping this new post series in my mind, I decided that it would be a great time to try this very pretty quad I picked up at Target over the Easter holiday. It is the Boots Botanics Mineral Eye Colour in “010 Velvet Greens”. Now, I have never tried anything from this brand before, so I though I would start with an eye product.

The Claims:

“Silky soft and smooth, long lasting, crease resistant mineral eye colour.”

“Active plant extract, Chamomile helps to smooth and care for the delicate skin around your eyes.”

Swatches:

My first opinion looking at these swatches is that the shades are very beautiful. But, they do appear very glittery in the swatches, not just shimmery. Which is some what of a turn off for me, especially when it is all 4 shades in the quad with that finish. I do really like these green tones.

The Look:

To achieve this look I put the gray shade in my crease, used the dark green shade to deepen my crease and used it to define my outer V. I then used the light green almost champagne shade on my lid. To highlight my brow bone and inner corner I used the light pink.

Over All:

I really do enjoy this quad. It is currently on sale at Target for $7.20. It is linked in the beginning of the post. The almost 5 hours they were on my eyes they did not crease. To get the dark green shade to look nice it did take  a ton of blending, but that is nothing new. My only real complaint is that there was no matte. The light pink or light green could have been matte and I would have been set. I do have to other quads by this brand I have yet to try, so be on the look out for those posts!

Have you tried this quad? What other Boots products do you suggest that I purchase? What are your favorite quads in general? Leave me a comment!
