Virginia Olsen Minerals Eye Colors

"Virginia Olsen Minerals eye colour has been produced with a high density of mineral makeup ingredients, so a little goes a long way. These natural cosmetics can be used interchangeably as eyeliner, highlighter, or eyeshadow."


Colors: L-R 
Olive Branch (olive green with shimmers) 
Pink Diamond (bright pink w/ tiny silver glitters) 
Gold Bar (shimmery yellow gold)

Natural Lighting
(Top: With Primer, Bottom: No Primer)

With Camera Flash


I specifically like that these shadows blend so well and have great pigmentation, particularly Pink Diamond which is so lovely. Gold Bar can be a good highlight and great lid color as well. Olive Branch is good for outer corner and crease contour but I bet it can be great also as a lid color. In general, all these shadows would look great on their own.

These shadows are Php 150/1g at Virginia Olsen Minerals website, which for me are affordable considering these are natural mineral make up. Not to mention with that amount of product, it will definitely last you a long time. They have a selection of several products such as blushes/cheek color, powder foundation, concealer/correctors, and mattifying base for oily people like me. And to top it off, they have brushes/tools to help you apply these products like a Pro.

Ingredients include Mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and has spf 19. They are made in USA.

Overall Rating: 9/10
