I recently had the opportunity to try the Smokey Eyes Eye Shadow/Eyeliner Sampler Collection from Pink Quartz Minerals. This collection contains 3 of their most popular eye shadow colors: Kettle, Ecstasy and Hazelnut. The eye shadows from this collection came in a 3g pot with a sifter lid. It also came with a dual angled brush.

The smokey-eye look is a classic look that, in my opinion, will never go out of style. For years, I have been trying to achieve the smokey-eye look but the end result is always me looking like a raccoon. The shades included in this kit made is very easy to achieve my desired look. I will admit that when I first began to apply the eyeshadow, I wasn't confident that these colors had enough contrast to give me the look I was going for. I used the angled brush to blend the shades and my opinion had completely changed.

I think gray compliments most eyes and this shade would also look great when worn alone. When blended, the gray transforms into a darker gray-brown. Kettle is a rich brown shade and I applied this in my crease. The last shade Ecstasy is a dark shimmery black shade. I used this in the corner of my eye and also has a liner on my top tip. The angled brush that I received was very soft and made it easy to apply and blend the eyeshadow. I used to opposite end of the brush to apply the shadow as a liner. I did wet the bristles of the liner side and noticed the bristles stuck together. As you can see, this had no impact on the brush's performance. I was able to easily glide the brush/shadow across my upper and lower lash line with extreme precision. This brush is amazing! Normally, I have problems with smudging, and I didn't have that problem with this brush. This kit is great for beginners!

Pink Quartz Minerals also has foundation, mineral veil, correctors and concealers, blushes bronzers and glows, lipsticks and glosses and kits tailored for your eye color or special gift kits and brushes. There is definitely something here for every woman and at these amazing prices, you can't go wrong.
