My Beauty Addiction was the first etsy store I started buying from. I was introduced to them by Maria over at AgapeLoveDesigns! (She sent me some in the swap that we did!) They have over 200 shadow colors! (They also sell other face makeup including lippies, foundations, blushes, and quite a bit of skincare items.) You have the option of buying single shadows, a pack of 5 samples, or a pack of 10 samples. You get to pick the colors that you want to try! I also have a jar of their eye shadow primer. I love that they come in clam shells and they come with plenty of product to do several applications. They also have the FASTING shipping in the entire world!
Star Crushed Minerals
I found this brand by searching etsy for "mineral eye shadow". It was a new shop so I was drawn to it immediately. Star Crushed Minerals sells sample only as singles instead of in a 5 or 10 pack. They also sell foundations and blushes. Their colors are SO RICH and pigmented and their primer is also wonderful! I have developed a great relationship with this shop owner. Her name is Edie and she really values the relationships she has with her customers.
She puts a great amount of product in her samples and all of them come in a jar with a filter, which makes little to no mess! Definitely my favorite packaging out of all the etsy makeup I own.
Be on the lookout for a full review of this brand and maybe even a giveaway! (wink, wink!)
Beauty Bar Baby
I stopped in at this etsy shop when I saw that everything was 50% off! It was easy to pick the colors that I wanted from BeautyBarBaby because there are pictures of each of her shadows swatched so I could see exactly what they looked like on the skin! Some of the colors are even swatched dry AND foiled(with water or a solution added)! Like most all mineral makeup on etsy, their products are vegan/cruelty free.
This shop, much like StarCrushedMinerals, sells samples as singles. They are packaged in jars with screw-top lids and no filter. If you aren't VERY careful, they can be very messy, so don't open them over anything white...including your new white bedroom rug...found that out the hard way! They color payoff was worth the mess! Beautiful!!
Okay, I know this post was long! I'm just so in love with the eye shadows that I've found on etsy and I think more makeup lovers need to know about these shops! Etsy is not just cross-stitch art work and macaroni necklaces anymore. (Okay I don't know if it ever WAS...) There are some serious treasures to be found on the site! You will find ANY color you are looking for, and probably some colors that you didn't even know existed! They are reasonably priced, and even the samples come with plenty of product. I'm not even close to running out of anything yet!
Don't forget that the people who are running these shops are usually the ONLY people running the shops. When you buy from etsy, you are supporting someone's dream and that's so important!
I'm going to link this post up with Maria (Agape Love Designs) and Andee (Wink4PinkBlog) for Makeup Monday. You can go by and link up anything that you have (blog posts, YouTube videos, Keeks, Instagram pics, etc) as long as it's beauty related!
