This is my first Mineralize Eye Shadow, and isn't it lovely?  I'm not sure how long the swirling patterns will last with me smudging my brush across, but for now I'm happy to sit back and bask in its prettiness!

Sam used this in her Helena Christensen tutorial and I fell in love.  I told myself that I didn't really need it, that my mundane life didn't call for something as smokey and glittery as this, but as always I cracked.  I'm glad I did, because despite its predominantly black appearance in the pan, this transforms into a beautiful golden brown shade.

On my eyes however, this maintains its brown golden tone on the lid, but in the crease the black shows through.  When I swatch it on my hand, in no time at all its all fallen away and I was worried that it wouldn't last on my eyes.  I wore it out the other night though, and I'm pleased to report that this didn't happen.  It could be down to my drunken urge to reapply every time I went to the toilet to avoid this happening though...

This leads me to another plus point.  Gilt By Association is incredibly easy to use and wear and despite my intoxicated top-ups it didn't create a mess.  It formed the best and easiest smokey eye I've ever done, and I'd say everyone needs to pick it up!

  2. It looks lovely and I like the sound of an easy smoky eye! Does it blend well?

    1. From what I remember it does! It may have taken a few "layers" as such to get a good amount of smokiness, but from what I recall it was ok to blend! x

    1. Haha that may be the trouble...as much as I love this I'm just not sure it's suitable for daytime! Well, not to work anyway, perhaps at the weekend. I'd stick to using this for nights out though, although I did manage to get a lovely toned down date night look using this on my sister x
