Swatches: EDM e/s in Shopping Spree

I was going through my Everyday Minerals collection to find things I want to include in Project Cute Box.
I was able to pick out quite a few things I was meh about and wanted to use up so I can stream my love on things I actually enjoy using.

 I found Everyday Minerals eyeshadow in Shopping Spree and thought: ''Perfect, another boring brown I can use up in no time''.  and then ... then I swatched it! 
Talk about WOW factor!

Here is a picture of it in it's sifter jar. You can see why i thought it was nothing special. It's brown with blue/green sparkle shinning throught.

Well, Everyday Minerals eyeshadow in Shopping Spree, let's swatch you, shall we. HA! Look at that. When swatched wet, the shadow has a holographic green glaze. Beautiful, right?

But wait, there is more to it.
Yes, indeed. 

When the light hits it, the hologaphic green douchorme shifts to bright teal! Jaw dropping effect this had on me.

However, I think this will go back to the original douchrome color you see on the picture above when the shadow dries. But I washed it off before considering that as an option. I'll have to try it out on the eyes to make sure.
I've never used this shade on the eyes before, can you believe that?
My collection isn't even big and I still have these hidden treasures,

I think I know why.
When I first got these minerals a year ago, I had no idea what to do with and how to use them properly to get the best results. I just treated it like a regular eyeshadow which did not do them any justice what so ever. And primers are usesless on my dry skin.

It's either emoliant base or wet application that do it for me.

I'll be a good girl from now on =)

So, any hidden gems in your collection recently? Tell me all about it <3

I am such a sucker for browns with blue or green duochromes <3333

WOW, doesn't it look like the eyeshadow Club by MAC or even Label Whore by Too Faced?

I wouldn't know, I do not own either.

But I've always had the feeling Club had a more true brown base with teal duochrome.
