TheBodyNeeds Mineral Eyeshadow - Irish Dreams Swatches & Review

Purchased by me/Contains affiliate links

Hey lovelies,

I have another beautiful eyeshadow to show you from TheBodyNeeds today, a pretty green called Irish Dreams! I'm really loving the eyeshadows I have from them so far. Have you tried any?

TheBodyNeeds provides several packaging options (taken from their website):
  • Approximately .6 grams in a clear, screw-top 5 gram sifter jar. 
  • Approximately 1.5 grams in a clear, screw-top 10 gram sifter jar. 
  • Approximately 2 grams/.07 oz Crush Pot - pressed in a 26mm round tin plate pan.
I opted for the 5g jars and I don't feel like I'll run out anytime soon! The jars are the standard clear screw-top kind, with a TheBodyNeeds sticker on the top and a name label on the bottom.

I thought this was a cute touch - the seal sticker over the sifter has the TheBodyNeeds' logo (shade shown is Breathless)!

TheBodyNeeds' description: 

Pale Pastel Green with a Gold Shimmer

Swatched dry (left) and over Pixie Epoxy (right) and photographed in sunlight. TheBodyNeeds' shadows work best over a sticky base as a rule, as they need something to adhere to. Over Pixie Epoxy, Irish Dreams is very opaque, while dry it's sheer but even. It's easy to apply and blend too. I think this is such a pretty colour and will get lots of use from it.

What I liked:
  • Gorgeous shimmery colour
  • Easy to apply and blend
  • Fantastic colour pay off over a sticky base
What I didn't like:
  • Needs a sticky base for full opacity
