Adorned With Grace Minerals Spring 2009 Eyeshadow Collection

I received all these Spring 2009 limited edition eyeshadows from Adorned With Grace Minerals for an amazing price - I believe I got them for less than thirty bucks. But when I received them, I got a little confused because all along, I’d thought that the Spring 2009 was a blush collection! You can just imagine my surprise when I got eyeshadows. =D Nonetheless, I loved them; they are absolutely amazing colors, and knowing the quality of Adorned With Grace products, I’m sure I would be enjoying these.

The last two shadows at the bottom right are the newest eye shadows from Adorned With Grace - Playful and Exuberance. Thank you Franchesca, they are gorgeous! I loved the colors because I use greens regularly, and the shades are just perfect for summer.

CORRECTION: Middle row-rightmost swatch should read Carefree, not Playful.

See how vibrant they are? These swatches were applied dry with MAC Butternutty shadestick as base.

I’ve been buying Adorned With Grace even when it was still in the testing stages. Here are some of the very first products I got from the company.

These pictures reminded me how great the texture of the shadows and blushes of AwG really is. I think I just got inspired to create looks using these products. I mentioned on this blog that AwG has some of the most amazing mineral shadow textures I’ve tried. The finish of some of the shadows reminds me of MAC veluxe pearl eyeshadows. They are quite pigmented, smooth and apply like butter on the lids, not gritty at all like some mineral shadows I’ve tried.

Watch out for some looks using these shadows.
