Virginia Olsen Minerals: Olive Branch Eyeshadow and Terra Cotta Blush
|The golden shimmers are very prominent.|
|In real life, the colors appeared dark green but when I took a photo, my eyeshadow turned gold with a hint of green. :)|
|Does this look Terra Cotta ish to you? If no, then I am not color blind at all. hehe|
|When swatched, it turned into a nice peach color with tiny (as in almost unnoticeable)silver shimmers. It applies smoothly on my cheeks. A word of caution, be careful in applying this blush. Do not over apply and make sure the blush sets before applying another layer. I know this might look too pale in the container but it is actually quite pigmented but not overtly pigmented like my Sleek blush or Mac. I was in the cab when I tried it on my cheeks. I was not satisfied with one layer because it looked so light and I really could not see the color then I applied two more layers.. When I look at the mirror to have check on my makeup, Lo and behold, I looked like a clown. wahhh|
Make sure you apply a thin layer first and wait for the color to blend on your skin. This blush lasted fairly well on my dry skin like 3 hours or so.
I want to try more from Virginia Olsen. I have been using their blush for days now and I like it. No break outs too. I was thinking of trying out their Green Tea or Hide a Pore line. They also have a nice range of matte bronzers that do not have the reddish tints that look so unnatural.
