Concrete Minerals’ Dancing Queen kit

One of the original collections from Concrete Minerals, way back when it opened first on Etsy. I liked these, because 1) it gave people some ideas about how to pair up the shadows; and 2) it gave people a way to get multiple colors for a very slightly discounted price. (Very slightly discounted - like, 50 cents per jar. Not a huge discount - maybe 8% - but not a few pennies either.) That said, this was one of the collections that didn’t really draw my eye. The chartreuse-green color of Juvenile was never one of my all-time favorites; and so while Strobelight and Souljourner were a pair of nice-looking blues, I wasn’t sure how the three of them would look together.

As it turns out, I was dead on: Juvenile isn't a great color for me, though I can use it in moderation and it looks decent. (On me, the shade looks better when paired with other greens, possibly a grey and a white.) Strobelight is not a color that I have strong feelings about one way or the other. Souljourner...everyone needs to check this color out, because it's a great deep blue. Softer than Kinky, but not by much, Souljourner works amazingly well as a contour-shadow or a liner. It was a good choice to visually anchor this particular trio.

This collection contained:

  • Juvenile — bright green-yellow satin
  • Strobelight — dusty medium-light blue shimmer
  • Souljourner — medium-deep lapis blue shimmer

This kit was eventually discontinued, around the same time all the other "first-launch" kits were discontinued. The colors are all part of the regular Mineral Shadows line, though, and remain available for purchase.
