e.l.f. mineral eyeshadows: goldens and miscellaneous

These shadows failed to make my heart beat faster - sure they're nice but apart from Earthy and perhaps Dreamy I can easily go without them. Wild? boring kaka brown with occasional shimmer, Beachy is exactly the blue I should avoid and Flirty looks just blah on me. Outdoorsy looks so different in the jar - sparkly dark green - and turns almost black when swatched wet. I think I should also make swatches dry over primer to see how they behave. Maybe they retain more shimmer using the dry method. Wild and Outdoorsy make good liner colors but otherwise I would not recommend. I guess Outdoorsy might also make a killer smoky eye but green is a bit of a tough color to pull off, just like blue.
Angelic has almost no coverage, it's more of a sheen. Same with Elegant - lovely highlight should one like shiny brow highlights. Golden is more covering and coppery. Celebrity on the other hand is muted, cool toned, a bit tarnished gold, beautiful in itself (f you do not have TKB's Forged Gold, get it). Buff is the one e.l.f. designed for under eye concealer - the eye brightener. For me it's too dark, too orange.

Earty is very, very nice metallic (when applied wet) or shimmery( when dry) golden green - it was the first green color in the mineral line.

CopyCat, it's so nice of you to give love to piggies that I myself am incapable to love :D
