This Autumn, pürminerals has come out with a beautiful palette of eye shadows called Secret Crush. This palette has eight richly pigmented eye shadows that can take you from nude to smoky in seconds. As their description says, nix the tired neutrals and indulge in luxe eye shadows with hues that complement, yet never compete with your natural beauty. This ultra-chic eye shadow palette gives you eight crushworthy earth tones and velvety satins that you have never seen before now. Housed in a trendy, go-anywhere case, Secret Crush brings an undeniable element of intrigue to one’s everyday look. Flaunt your newest object of affection with refined natural beauty from PÜR Cosmetics.
The shades in this gorgeous palette are as follows: Whisper (satin creamy pink), Lust (satin ballet pink), Passion (shimmery pink), Muse (shimmery chocolate), Infatuation (shimmery bronze), Admirer (shimmery taupe), Rendezvous (satin dark chocolate) and Rumor (satin black). The palette also comes with a nice eye shadow brush that is actually worthy of use. It is a shading brush, so I would suggest using it for shading shadow on the lid. One suggested everyday, easy look provided by the website is to apply Lust all over as a base then use Admirer to contour the crease area. For more of a nighttime look and to add drama, apply Rendezvous on the outer corner for definition or all over the eyelid. Concentrate at the lashline for a more intense, smoky look. Personally, I know what kind of look to use for the shape of my eyes. I tend to use the same hues in the same area to bring out the hooded lids I have.
These eye shadows are wonderful. Not only are they extremely pigmented but they are soft, creamy and long-wearing. They go on smoothly, without fallout. The metallics/shimmers are very shimmery, and don’t skimp on the bling. The satins are not chalky with is nice for a change, I am sick of chalky satiny shades. They are smooth and creamy with a lot of pigmentation, even the lightest shades. The eye shadows blend very well too. making it easy to achieve the look you want. As you can see below, I was able to get two looks, a nude look and a smoky eye look. Below you can see the photo I took. You can see how beautiful the shades are, especially the metallic/shimmer shades. Passion, Muse, Admirer and Infatuation are simply gorgeous. They go on exactly like they look in the pan, richly pigmented and so very pretty. See the swatches in the photo below and you can see how pigmented the shadows are. These eye shadows are luxe in every way. I highly recommend this palette. It is definitely worth every penny spent on it.
For this look I used Rendezvous in the crease, Rumor was used below to add depth. Then I also used it on the outer 1/3 of the upper lid and lining the lower lid with it. Infatuation was used on the upper lid and Whisper under the brow); L'Oreal Voluminous Superstar Eyeliner on was placed on the upper lid and Voluminous Superstar Mascara on lashes; Pixi All Over Magic No.1 Bare Radiance on cheeks.
