Honeybee Gardens PowderColors Stackable Mineral Color Chai -- 2 g
Perfect Every Day Natural Look
I love Honey Bee Gardens products. The Chai eye color is the perfect matte-- velvety smooth, no sheen, no shine. It's like a medium tan clay color, slightly darker than my fair skin tone. It adds a very nice, subtle depth to my eye lids on the days I don't feel like going all out on makeup, but want something to help my eyes pop.
The only negative is that you need an eye primer to keep it in place. I get very greasy lids during the summer and it creases a little. A slight rub fixes that around 3pm each day, which isn't a big deal. I also wish that they would put a sifter on the jar like other people suggested. You have to be very careful when opening the jar not to spill. Place upright and tap on your counter before opening. I dip my eyeshadow brush in and tap it into the lid, leaving the jar securely on the counter.
A little goes a long way and even with daily use for the past few weeks, it doesn't look like I've made a dent in the product.

great coverage for long wearing power
I love this product and have been using it for almost 5 years. They can be worn dry or wet for more intense color. They last a VERY long time and the containers are great for storage and traveling!

A little goes a long way!
This is the first time using mineral eye shadow. Like a previous review said, I just gently shake a bit of the dry mineral powder into the cover, wet my index finger with only a drop of water, stir the powder with my moistened finger and then apply to my lids. Works great and lasts all day. Use a little more for a darker shade. Color is a nice natural tone and blends in yet highlights too. Great product and simple, pure ingredients.

I love this because its good for you and a great base colour. It is definitely not yellow, more of a light brown. I have red hair and pale skin and this suits me very well. The container is small but Ive had mine for 4 months and worn it every day and still have half a container! Feels great on, doesnt crease. Love it!

Honeybee Mineral Powder~Chi
I only used this a couple of times. I use a brush (designed for that purpose) dipped lightly in the powder, and 'smushed' up into the brush bristles. It clumped on my face and did not even out. The color, and I'm not an ivory complexion, was too dark with a red tone. I was also disappointed at how small the container was. So, would I buy it again? Naw.
