I got a sample of this eyeshadow color a while ago with a promo from Everyday Minerals, but I left it unopened for a while due to the massive amounts of makeup I have bought recently. The eyeshadow came in the sample sizes that are no longer available except in the kits that Everyday Minerals sells.
This eyeshadow is a lilac pink matte eyeshadow. It is described by the company as “matte lilac/purple,” and from its picture, it looks like lavender. Because I was running out of another eyeshadow of almost the same color (based on the website picture), I thought it would be a great chance to get a color I love, but I was really disappointed when I received it in the mail. It looked more like a cooler pink than a purple. It is such a big noticeable difference in color.
I haven’t had a lot of major issues with color discrepancies with Everyday Minerals, but this one was really major, so I was actually really disappointed with it. This also deterred me from opening it for a while.
The eyeshadow is completely matte, and as a result, it is incredibly hard to blend, something I find that Everyday Minerals’s matte shades do in general. When I applied it to my eye, the color was not distributed evenly, so I tried to blend it out all over my eyelid. It absolutely refused to blend, so I ended up with very uneven looking eyeshadow. And this is something that other matte eyeshadows from Everyday Minerals have in common.
Overall, I would not recommend this eyeshadow. For one, I was really disappointed by the color discrepancy. If you don’t care so much about the color, and might be looking for a cooler pink, with a hint of purple, then that might work for you. However, this is definitely, definitely not a lavender color. It is more pink than purple. It also has blending issues, but again, if you do not use primer, this may work for you.
