Trio shadows are great for those days you are in a rush, or a creativity slump. All the colors you need are in one compact and blend easily together in a great color combination. 
The above two pictures are the same trio in different light. 
The three shadow lightest to darkest. Swatched in one stroke on my arm. No primer or base. 
Left- Lightest color all over    Right- Bare
Left-Lightest all over, Middle shade, on lid and crease    Right-  Lightest all over
Light pink all over. Middle shade (red/maroon) in crease and on lid. Darkest shade lower lashline and outer V details.
Added black liquid liner. Smudged the darkest shadow over the liner to soften. Mascara on top and bottom lashes. 

After 9 hours of wear...

After a little over nine hours of wear, the only difference is my oily skin making everything shiny!!! If I had used a primer, my oil would have been blocked. The shadows stayed perfect. WOW!

If you do the math, its under $7.00 a shadow. ($20 a Trio) Its a great deal!

Tantalizing Trio!
     Trios! I love love love trios! Especially ones like this Emani Minerals one.  Trios are one of my favorite shadows to collect just because they usually for the most park come with three colors that go beautifully together and can create a quick simple look. The trio I have here is in #401 Tantalizing! A blend of a light color for the highlight, a medium brown for the lid and the darker brown for the crease and creating added depth to a look. You really can't go wrong with a neutral trio. Personally I think everyone should have at least ONE natural eye trio in their bag because you can use those colors with any outfit.

Talc/Paraben Free! :)
     One of the key things about this shadow is just the care that's put into them. To make them great for sensitive skin by taking out all that stuff that can be harsh on your skin. Not only that but I loveee that they are not for testing on animals. I was impressed that they are even PETA Certified. They really took out the bad that a lot of other brands have in their products and made a beautiful silky shadow trio that is very wearable. Below are swatches without primer!

Swatch without primer
     They show up so pretty even without a primer or any type of base! They go on very smooth and are not chalky, AT ALL! Usually the lighter shades of trios can seem chalky or just lower quality (reason why, I'm not sure) but this one I had no chalkiness to it which was great. Although the lighter shade here did have to be built up a little bit to get a lot of color, but that typically goes with any light color shadow. Since this has been sitting right next to my mirror, when I'm running late for work I just grab this and every things right there and I'm not worrying about making sure I don't look like a clown and not match my clothes.

Wearing just the trio shadows ;)
     In the picture above I have the all the shadows in the trio on my eyes. No others! Such a pretty look that goes with any skin and eye color. I'm in love <3  You can pick your own up for $20 and also check out their other trios for other colors!
