Free samples from Everyday Minerals

I’m at the experimental stage with mineral makeup and am very interested to try out new products.  But I’m not keen to purchase the full size until I’m convinced that the product is suitable for me.

So I was really excited to learn that Everyday Minerals is offering a free sample makeup kit consisting of three choices of foundation, one concealer and one blush, even for international customers.  I only have to pay for shipping which is just US$5.05 to Singapore. 

Alima Satin Matte Mineral Foundation

I would like to say that the Alima Satin Matte Mineral Foundation is a good product.  However, it doesn’t work well for my skin tone and I don’t like the way I look with this foundation.

Mineral makeup application technique

There is a specific technique when it comes to applying mineral makeup.  i.d. bareMinerals calls it Swirl, Tap, Buff.  Erth Mineral Makeup calls it Twirl, Tap and Brush.  But they are all the same when it comes to the process.

I had a little problem initially but with practice, it became real easy.  I saw the mineral makeup application video on i.d. Minerals website and realised that I was on track, except that instead of putting the powder on the lid, what I do is to use my brush to pick up the powder, then swirl it on the lid then tap the excess off.  This helps to prevent unnecessary wastage.

Flawless look with mineral foundation

I have to say I’m very impressed by the mineral foundation from Erth Mineral Makeup. 

Apart from mineral eyeshadows, I have yet to buy mineral foundation even though I’ve read and written good things about it.  First it isn’t readily available here and second, because of the way it looks, I thought I would get similar result like normal loose powder, for which I’m not a fan of.  But thanks to free samples from the company, I finally got to try mineral foundation and I’m now completely hooked on the product.
