I’ve read so many good things about Mineral Make-Up and finally, the other day, I decided to give it a try. I got my sample set from Sophie, she mans the sites Mineral Make-Up blog and Beautynomics. She introduced me to Mineral Make-up, but since I still had my loot – I had to wait until they at least become half-used before getting some products!
I got my sample set last Friday, and by just looking at it, I was already intimidaded. What are these mineral make-ups? What’s the fuss about it? The looked like ordinary powders, but they were supposed to be better than ordinary make-up. Mineral Make-Up claims to be without harmful chemicals and irritants AND it’s supposed to make your skin flawless.
Out of curiousity, I immediately opened the containers and tried them one by one on my hand. And from just sampling them in my fingers here’s what I thought about them:
CAROLINE, HYE YEON, ANGEL – I checked their shades one by one, but I later realized that without a brush, they won’t blend it well to my skin. You can just imagine the patches I had on my had. (I’m a very curious child you see)
These three items below – impressed me so much!!
SEMI MATTE BEIGE – This was the first one I tampered (what a word!) with, it was love at first try! It’s so nice! It’s a translucent shade of beige. Love it!
STAR LILY – at first the purple color shocked me. I was wondering why Sophie would give me this shade! But when I tried it on my hand – it came our really nude and pinkish! Nice one Sophie!
RADIANT – I love the shade! It’s a perfect highlighter!!
I tried the make-up last Saturday night and the verdict? I was blown over, I was super impressed! The coverage was amazing! With other branded products, I still had to use a cake foundation to cover my red spots and spider veins! But with Mineral Make-Up, all I had to do was sweep the foundation on my face about 3 times. With just a minimal amount of make-up I was able to acheive a flawless finish! It’s really amazing. I was shocked and at the same time super glad that I finally tried Mineral Make-Up!
To Shobe Sophie! I love you! I love the sample set! I love Mineral Make-Up!!
