Hey friends, I just want to share with you some of the samples that I received recently. They are my free custom sample kit which I ordered online from Everyday Minerals and all I have to do is pay for the shipping costs which is about $3.79.
So, I got these 7-piece custom sample kit :
3 pcs for face – lanai in the sand(bronzer), poipu-lar shores(bronzer) and finishing dust(finishing powder);
2 pcs for cheek – peony petal and cameo(blush);
2 pcs for base – golden beige (matte base) and honey(jojoba base)
Okay, let’s get to the point. I got these samples to try the products and also to check the color swatch if it works for me instead of buying a regular size and then decided that it doesn’t. So, I think this is a wiser way to actually pick up any makeup products without much hesitation after sampling them.
These samples have been lying around on my desk for awhile and I decided to try it on today.
I started with their Golden Beige (3w) with peony petal as the blusher and poipu-lar shores the bronzer for today’s makeup look. Since, they were all in powder format, I have a hard time applying them. The powder foundation didn’t stick well and I have to dap my brush with water and then mixed it to make it easier to blend as if it’s a liquid foundation. Maybe, it’s just me, I’m so used to liquid and cream foundations. I like the smooth feeling on my face and it has medium coverage. Would definitely need to build-up for full coverage.
Since I have dry skin, I tried to avoid applying too many layers. Like always, I usually put my moisturizer on before foundation but sad to say, I can still see dry patches on my face with these foundation. My face does looked more radiant and fresh except it’s a little drier for dry skin person. Not too bad for those who prefer powder foundation. The color I chose was a little lighter than my normal color tone. Luckily, this is just a sample and I know now that I’m going to use this as my standard guide on how light or dark shade I should get when ordering online.
The bronzer and blusher works perfectly well for me except that the powder were flying everywhere while I was putting them on. It’s a little bit messy though. I have all finger prints now on my keyboard. Oops!
Overall, I like the color blush and also the bronzer because it’s quite pigmented and soft. The bronzer did it’s job by contouring my face well. I would love to them in creamy formula but that’s just me. For those who loves natural mineral makeup, I would recommend you start with Everyday Mineral. The price is reasonable and the quality is good for a mineral product.
My conclusion is that these samples from Every Minerals are all good products. Except that I need to use them wet instead of dry when it comes to using these pretty formulas.
