Enhance Your Natural Beauty with Etniq Minerals

In order to kick off the New Year properly, Here's a review a bit over due featuring Etniq Minerals by Leah Patterson. Since it's start a few months ago, this company has gained enormous following for their unique ability to create gorgeous pigments suitable for most skin tones. But in order to understand how far they've come you must first learn about their beginnings. Etniq Minerals was created for the diva in all of us by the very lovely and talented Leah Patterson. Who sought to create something worth buying, without the worry of harmful chemicals. I believe she achieved just that, for I was given the opportunity to try her products and fell in love. Here are some of the best and brightest from Etniq.

Olive Peach Foundation - Unfortunately this does not match my skin tone nor does it blend very well. Nevertheless it is definitely long lasting, light-weight and build-able as well as a Custom Made Foundation, which Can not be found on the Etniq site. Customs are $30

Sunset Blush - This gorgeous peach tone is perfect for all of those who wish to bring some color in a very subtle way. However I must admit, I mainly use this as an eyeshadow for the color is just to mesmerizing. Not to mention all the complements I receive from not just my family and friends but strangers too. This definitely a must have from Etniq, there is no going wrong with this shade, for just one sweep of color is all you need. But can also be built up for a night out on the town look.

Earth Eyeshadow

Earth Eyeshadow
Absolutely love this color, there isn't a shade I use more than this. Besides the color, I love the attention it draws to my brown eyes but most of all I love the application. For it is easy to apply and very little goes a long way. The picture seen to the left of your screen does not do this shade justice. Believe me, You will be amazed at the gorgeous simplicity of the color as well as the results you see after applying just one sweep.

Melon Eyeshadow
Melon EyeshadowAlthough shimmery, this shade is definitely not one to be doubtful of. For this is a lovely orange shade enriched with shimmer and a brown base, creating a color worth your money as well as your love. This is definitely my Top Favorite Shade from the Etniq Minerals Line. Wear it alone or pair it with another eye popping shade. Overall this is a color sure to draw interest.

Merlot Eyeshadow- Unfortunately I'm not a fan of this color. I wish this wasn't so but I have to be truthful and although it looked gorgeous in it's container, it did not come nearly as close to that in which I pictured. I can assure you I used the Elf Primer as it's base and still no results. I also tried using a combination of the Elf Primer and a white eyeshadow base, which I did see a difference. Ultimately I decided to use this solely as a crease eyeshadow and nothing more.

Tips & Tricks: Pair Earth and Melon eyeshadow for the perfect eye-drawing look that will be sure to capture anyone's attention.
