Overall Beauty 100 MILES TO GO, AREA 51, GREEN MACHINE, GLIDED JADE Mineral Eye Shadow Swatches & Review

It's no secret I have a penchant for Green Eye Shadow. I would live, breath, eat, swim, and die green eye shadow. MMMMMM drama.

Kim from Overall Beauty knows my weakness, so she sent over 4 beautiful green mineral eye shadows along with the Magic Lash reviewed HERE.

From the Overall Beauty website:
All of our MINERALS have a higher percentage of pure mineral colorants and NO FILLERS, so a small amount on your eye lids provides the same color depth as a heavy application of traditional pressed powder eye make up. A 5G jar of Overall Beauty MINERALS will last about twice as long as the same amount of cake eyeshadow.

We do NOT use talc, carmine or bismuth oxychloride in our makeup

Zinc Oxide USP, Titanium Dioxide ,Mica ,Iron Oxides , may have Ultramarine Blue,Ferric Ferrocyanide, Kaolin Clay

Today I have to show you 100 Miles To Go, Area 51, Green Machine, and Glided Jade Mineral Eye Shadows. (click pics below to enlarge)

Click those bottom two pics to enlarge and REALLY see the shimmers! All shades were swatched with NO primer (and they still look AWESOME!)

GREENS. Perfect, lovely greens...

100 Miles To Go
is part of the new Road to Nowhere Collection. It is a vibrant and grassy green with a hit of glittery sass.

Area 51 is also part of Road to Nowhere. A much more sheer green than what is depicted in the pot, this is a beautiful and glittery lid color to begin the perfect green eye look. If aliens looked this pretty, consider me Area 51's newest resident.

Green Machine actually looks similar to Area 51 in person, but is a bit more dense. I like it a little more because it's a bit more pigmented. This would be a nice look to do in the evening with Area 51 as a liner and a deep green in the crease.

Glided Jade (aka my favorite green of ALL TIME) is crazy amazing beautiful. If you only get one shadow from this whole post, get this one. I feel like Glided Jade is beyond words.

All of the above mentioned shades are super smooth and easily blendable. I will be doing a FOTD coming up to show how they look on the eyes as well as how they look used wet as a liner.

Tips from Overall Beauty to use your Mineral Eye Shadow as a liner:
For using it as eye liner, place a little mineral eye shadow into the lid of your jar then just wet the tip of your brush with water then dip it into your
eye shadow and mix it a little in the lid so you really have something to work with.
Line your eyes with Area 51 then to really make your eyes pop. go over it
again with dry mineral eye shadow. You can smudge it as well if your like.
If you place it right at the base of your lower lashes, its truly brings out the color of your eyes.
It stays put wet or dry..
