As I said before, I got Everyday minerals delivery of 2 Starter kit about 2 weeks ago (i think). I have started using them regularly so i thought i will review it for them. Before using a mineral makeup, be sure to know that you really need very little amount of the makeup.
I got 6 sample mineral foundations and they are
- Olive Golden Medium in Intensive
- Olive Golden Medium in Semi-matt
- Beige – Medium Beige Neutral in Intensive
- Beige – Medium Beige Nertal in Semi-matt
- Olive Neutral in Intensive
- Olive Neutral in Semi-matt
After trying all these, I found that the Olive Neutral is too light for my skin tone Whereas Olive Golden Medium is too yellow/dark on my skin. I really hoped that at least one colour will suit me. Finally i tried Medium Beige Neutral and i thought it was a near match for my skin but not the perfect match. I first tried the Intensive formulation and they are for the best coverage and I can see the difference. Some of my dark spots were covered and it really gives a good coverage. Then then Semi-matt formulation which gives a light coverage. When using both of the formulations, I found that the Intensive is darker than the semi-matt even though they are of the same colour.
I still want to try some more colour before settling for buying this colour. I ordered some more samples 🙂 . I ordered Warm – Buttered Tan colour and I want to see how it looks on me. But overall they are a good brand. It didn’t give me any break outs, so that is definetely a plus.
I got All Smiles & Apple blushes and both are matt formulations. Out of these two, my favourite is All Smiles. It is a peachy pink colour, more of a summer colour. Whereas Apple is more pink plumy colour, a deep plum, more of a night colour rather than a day colour. But both are absolutely amazing colours, very pigmented as well. Even though i got a sample size, it is going to last for atleast 6-9 months 🙂 .
I got the Intensive concealer medium & Abbots perk me up. I have a dark circle and so i mostly use the cream concealers which are usually good. I tried the Intensive concealer on my dark circle and found that its too light and I can still see the dark circle. But I do have some liquid concealer and used it. I then applied the intensive concealer medium on top of it to set it. I guess its ok, but would i buy it again, NO.
I am in love with their mineral foundations. Its easy to apply and doesn’t cake in my skin. With over 40 colours to choose from, you will get your perfect match or a near perfect match. If you are into blushes, then you will love theirs. They have matt, sheen, pearl effect, etc. Its really good that you can find a wonderful foundation & blush for a good bargain in this recession time 🙂 . And readers, I have to tell you that it is one of the best bargains ever.
Hint : I have already ordered one more from them 😉 . Will tell you about it when they arrive.
