Mirabella Mineral Eyeshadow Duo – Review

Hey beauties!

A quick review and look of the day!

In my Wantable subscription box for May, I received an eyeshadow duo from Mirabella in the colors Titan and Haute. They’re a gorgeous, highly pigmented pair. Titan is an icy pale blue shade, and Haute is a deep matte blue. The colors complement each other quite well and I’ve been really happy with them so far.

I normally go with dark colors on my deep brown eyes, but sometimes you need to really shock with a blast of color. While I wouldn’t have chosen these two for myself, I’m glad they came in my box. One of the biggest reasons why I love subscription boxes is because they give me a chance to try new things that I normally wouldn’t purchase on my own. 

The pair come in a small, white, hard plastic container that clicks shut. The pans are magnetic, so you can remove them and replace them as you’d like. I think this is an amazing concept, as the amount of shadows I go through in singles in ridiculous, so I normally buy palettes instead to try and reduce waste. The duos go for $28.00 on the Mirabella website and there are currently two different sets to choose from (although you can always replace them with others). 

I found these had minimal fallout upon application, were very smooth both with and without a primer, and had excellent staying power. I left my makeup on for about six hours and the look never smudged or creased at all! It was as vibrant when I went to take it off as it was when I first applied. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that they were buttery smooth, but they weren’t chalky at all. It was a happy medium that left for clean application and a nice, lightweight feel on my lids. Sometimes after a few hours, I can feel like my eyes are suffocating under the weight of the dramatic looks I do, but not with these.

Verdict:

Packaging: 10/10 – I love that I don’t have to toss the whole package when I’ve finished, and I can continue using the same one and replacing colors as I finish them. The case snaps closed and won’t pop open, keeps your shadow safe, and since it holds two, it would be wonderful to travel with instead of bringing a whole palette or multiple singles. It’s very sturdy and has a small mirror inside to check for touch ups. 

Application: 8/10 – Soft enough to apply well, but not so much that they had crazy fallout, I was a big fan of the application of these. I will say that when you blend, these can blend completely into nothing. I always say that if you think you’ve blended enough, blend some more, but you do want to be careful with these or you’ll lose all color. 

Longevity: 10/10 – These lasted six hours on without smudging, fading or losing any of the vibrancy they had when I first applied. 

9.3/10

These are definitely an excellent purchase for anyone looking to add a bright pop of color to their daily look, or for a super intense eye. They blend easily and look great when used together or alone. Eyeliner applied over the top goes smoothly and doesn’t feather into the powder. I’d recommend these for just about anyone. With a white eye base, you could pull these off as bright as they are in the package, or go neutral for a softer outcome. 

I hope you enjoyed this super quick review and learned something new! Let me know what you thought and what you’d like to see next in the comments below, and be sure to subscribe to always be on top of what’s new and trending in the beautiful world of makeup and style!
