So now that I’ve played with most of my Concrete Minerals colors I can tell you a bit about them.
This is Juvenile, Zealous and Prude.
This is Detox.
This is Croma, Kismet, Seance and Prude.
Prude is a perfect highlighter shade for me! It’s great for on the browbone or inner v area of the eye. It’s a pale shimmery pink shade.
Juvenile and Zealous are quite bright, and I really love them. My only disappointment with Juvenile is the same disappointment that I had with Croma, I couldn’t see the turquoise/aqua sparkle in either. Seance is such a drop dead gorgeous purple it looks PERFECT in the crease. I’m not sure I have another purple that looks exactly like this one in my collection.
The shadows are nicely pigmented, apply easily and blend easily. The color that you see in the swatch and in the bag seems to be very much what shows up on my skin, too. There are about 30 shades to choose from currently, so while Concrete doesn’t have the color selection of some of the larger companies, the colors they have are all very nice.
The shadows are $5.99 each, but you can purchase 2 samples for $1.99 or try 5 samples for $4.99. You also can buy 1 get 1 free of the full size if you become a fan on Facebook.
So far, I’ve had great customer service from Concrete. I’ve been able to give the owner feedback on some of the shades I’ve tried, and my thoughts on them, and she’s been taking that feedback into consideration for reformulation of the shades.
Would I buy from Concrete again?
Yes! I’ve now purchased twice from Concrete and I will definitely buy from again. I want to pick up full sizes of Prude, Detox and Seance.
Have you tried Concrete Minerals? What did you think? What shades did you like?
