Mineral Basics Make-up, Review and Giveaway!


This Giveaway has ENDED! Thank you for Entering!

Look at this wonderful stuff! This is what I got in the mail today! I instantly went and washed off my other (horrible) make-up, and applied this Mineral Make-up by Mineral Basics.
There are 7 pieces that they sent me.
.
They sent me a mini Kabuki Brush.
.
(The following is a description from their site, and also what they sent)
.
1. Light Neutral Foundation (5 grams powder by weight in 20-gram sifter jar...90 day supply! FULL JAR!) ...for light skin with balanced undertones. One of our most popular shades! Achieve great coverage for acne, scars, bruising, veins, rosacea and more, while looking totally natural and flawless! Also provides a natural sunscreen!

2. True Blush- a neutral, dusty rose blush, perfect for just about any skin tone! (5 gram jar)

3. Perfect Tan Bronzer/All-Over Color- a brand new shade! Stunning matte rosy beige...gives skin a wash of natural tan color when used all over face...can also be applied to body or just as blush. My personal favorite shade!

4. Glow- perfect finishing powder that creates a soft, subtle glow all over! (5 gram jar)

5. Finishing Silk- final mineral powder that sets your makeup and gives a flawless, natural finish!! (5 gram jar)

6. Light Complete Cover Sample- a heavy concealer that can be used alone (as a foundation) or for spot-concealing. Has a matte finish and balanced undertones. Helps absorb excess oil. (1/4 teaspoon in baggie)
.
After I put on the Mineral Basics Make-up, I LOVED the way my face looked! It didn't look blotchy, like it does with other make-up. And I actually wear a make-up that you can buy in retail and drug stores that says it mineral make-up. But it sure doesn't compare to Mineral Basics! As I was looking at how good my skin looked, I touched my face and it was super soft!
.
I'm just layin' out all the cards now... I have oily and dry skin combo. Yeah, I know, nice to work with. I also am 32 and STILL have acne. I know, now your getting jealous. Coverage with Mineral Basics was very nice! It didn't TOTALLY cover the blemishes (but I am still learning how to apply the make-up correctly too), but it did a pretty good job of it. And I will also say it did a LOT better job then any make-ups I have tried in a while. Also, 8 hours later, after putting the make-up on, my skin doesn't look oily. Usually 10 minutes after I put on my old make-up, I look oily.
.
So, I have to say I am very impressed. I will DEFINITELY order more from Mineral Basics.
.
And NOW, I am excited to be giving away one of these sets, just like I got, in the skin color of your choice! They also ship WORLDWIDE!
.

jeanilyne said...

I would like to win this for several reasons.

I've heard many good things about mineral makeup. However, I've been a bit reluctant to make the switch from foundation to mineral. After reading your review it sounds as if Mineral Basics would work for my skin as well. I do have oily in some areas that is a little hard to keep under control. Also, I would love to make the switch to a product more natural in its making and how it looks on me from the traditional liquid foundation to mineral.

cwalker said...

I, like you, tend to have oily/dry skin. Some places look really oily and shiny and others look very dry. I tend to get a shiny face even 5 minutes after applying my makeup. I think these makeups would probably help with that. Experimenting with makeup gets expensive quickly so I haven't really been trying anything new recently.

I'd love to win this set because I have never tried mineral makeup before and I am dying to!! I want to start using all natural beauty products, no more harmful toxins are going on my skin anymore and I have read how mineral makeup is actually good for your skin. I enjoy wearing makeup, creating new looks for myself with it, and this kit sounds wonderful! Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

joannaonthelake said...

Another product that I would love to try is the AgeLess PURIFY- Elegant Floral Facial Spritz. I have read that if you spritz your face after you apply your makeup it sets the makeup so it stays in place better for you all day and keeps it hydrated too!

quinnschilling said...

I would love to try this make-up, but should not spend the money right now. I do have dry skin & some roscea, so I am wondering if it would work...if so, I'd love to win:) I always have spent the $ for clinique, but lately, my skin is just not good. I probably do need a change. The product from the site: I would want the concealer corrector.Thanks:) quinnschilling@gmail.com

Ash A said...

I would LOVE to win this mineral makeup set, as I have a type of roseacea on the T-zones of my face during times of stress, humidity (from the shower), and when the seasons change. Due to this I cannot wear any makeup except a few mineral makeups that I am toying around with. I really would love to find a makeup that would cover up my embarrassing red, blotchy, dry spots on my face.

Thanks!
