Glo Minerals Blogger Challenge

Glo Minerals set several bloggers a challenge to re-create one of their favourite make-up eras using three of their products: Glo Eyeshadow in Opal, Lipstick in Spiced Rum and Glo Liquid Liner in Coal.


A quick review of the items for those who are interested before we get into the challenge. The lipstick is a beautiful, almost buttery feeling. It isn't too slippy or creamy but is incredibly comfortable and hydrating on the lips (thanks to a little Castor oil in the ingredients!). Plus the pigmentation is brilliant, exactly what you see in the bullet! The eyeliner is a a jet-black liquid liner with a brush applicator. It is quite wet so not great for those who find eyeliner transfers onto the crease/brow bone but great for creating thin dark feline flicks or a thicker liner although I think it is better at creating a precise thin line as the brush is perfectly petite. Finally the eyeshadow in Opal is a matte white eyeshadow. I think this eyeshadow is great at it is very wearable, it isn't highly pigmented but nor is it sheer - which is why it is so wearable. It is a very powdery eye shadow so don't apply too much on the brush as it may create fall out but it does blend like a dream. Overall, my favourite item is the lipstick as it really does feel beautiful on the lips and doesn't enhance any imperfections.


The look I decided to create was sixties inspired, think an every day Lana del Ray!
To create the look simply apply the foundation of your choice and conceal, line the eyes with the Coal eyeliner, heavily apply the opal eyeshadow and then use any matte dark brown shadow in the crease and blend blend blend. Finish with a slick of lipstick! A very easy yet effective sixties look.
