Femme Couture Mineral Eyeshadow


Today I tried Femme Couture Mineral Eyeshadow in Rose Quartz.  I got it at Sally Beauty supply, you can check it out Here.  It's 6.99 at the store but if you have the beauty club card it's $5.79.  I wanted to give a few of these loose mineral eyeshadows a go before I bought any "real" ones from Fyrinnae or OCC.  I would say it's best to use a primer underneath.

I like the small square packaging - easy to store and stack!
They only have like 6 colors at the Sally  near my house but on the website there are more colors available, most are neutrals but there is a bright blue and a pink.
Rose Quartz (the color I got) is more of a pinkish plum.
The little sifter is nice so you don't spill out all sorts of product.
As you can see one swipe (on the left) yeilds a soft wash of color.  But you can build it up to opaque capacity fairly easily. It wears really well over a primer and did not crease. This will look great with my new UD 24/7 eyeliner in Rockstar. 

I think these shadows are nice way to try out loose mineral powders and get used to apllying them before jumping into the fun brands. 

Do you have good/bad experiences with mineral shadows?  I personally am not a fan of the "baked" kind (too much shimmer!)



  1. Gorgeous color... I don't have any mineral shadows but loose shadows as a whole I usually stir away from. I recently got rid of the last ones I had except a couple M.A.C pigments but other than that they tend to be really messy and because my makeup is in my bedroom it drove me crazy. haha


  2. I actually got two more today - I think the key is a good primer. I've been using Two Faced underneath and pattingit "in".
