Review & Swatches: Sassy Minerals

I placed a sample order with Sassy Minerals a few months ago and have been playing with their eye shadows ever since.  Eye shadow samples are $1 and are 1/16 tsp. in a 3 gram jar.  Full sizes are 1 gram in a 5 gram jar for $4.25.  Sassy also makes foundation, primer, finisher, blush, bronzer, and lip balm.

Sassy has 2 eye shadow finishes - shimmer and silk luster, which are mattes.  I only ordered shimmers but I did receive a free sample of Sultry, which is a silk luster, and I'm super impressed - it's silky and very blendable and not at all chalky or hard to work with.  They also make Deja Vu eye shadows, which are dupes of BE colors.

These aren't the brightest, most vibrant eye shadow colors out there, but I'm SO pleased with them.  They're very wearable for everyday, but full of depth and sparkle - never boring!  The website pictures really do not do justice to how gorgeous the colors are in real life, but they do link to a number of blogs with swatches - I definitely recommend checking those out before ordering.

In terms of wear, I was also impressed.  Even without a primer, I was able to go 6-7 hours before they started creasing.  With a primer, they last even longer and the colors, of course, show up more vividly as well.


All swatches are dry on bare skin.

Dry Martini is one of my favorites - a gorgeous gold/green shade

Femme Fatale is a beautiful pinky-burgundy with silver sparkle

I love putting Panache all over the lid with Practically Perfect on the upper lashline - it works amazingly for a simple neutral eye.



Would I repurchase?
Definitely.  I found the eye shadows to be high quality and prices are very reasonable.  I've been reaching for these colors a lot and want to get full sizes of some of them and maybe try out their other products.
