Everyday Minerals samples in sifter jars

Everyday Minerals

I made another order for the free Everyday Minerals sample and bingo, this time, I got my shades right.  Those who use mineral foundation know that it can be quite a pain to find a shade that suits your skin tone and it’s usually a process of trial and error. 

Depending on where you get your foundation from, the trick is to pick a shade or two darker than your skin tone.  I had to pick Golden Medium, which is two shades darker than my skin tone under the Olive undertone.  It’s not an exact match, but I’m happy with the results.

I know I’ve already reviewed Everyday Minerals Foundation but I just want to rave about the fact that they’ve improved their packaging even on their samples!  The samples are shipped in small 5-hole sifter jars with stickies to cover the holes!  No more open transparent pots where it can get really messy with powder all over the place once it is opened up. 

I’m so impressed and for that, I’m going to add another heart to my last review because I got free samples on a good product that were shipped in appropriate containers.  So here’s five out of five for Everyday Minerals Foundation from Viva Woman.

    I find EDM oxidizing quite a fair bit as compared to other mineral makeups. Do you face the same problem?

    Oddmelody: No, I haven’t noticed this.

  5. absolution says:

    i have the same problem with EDM as well. i put it on, it looks fine but when i check a few hours later i look orangey and kinda muddy. dont love their foundations. their blushes are great though, as is their sunlight concealer

  6. Oddmelody says:

    Yup! Like absolution, that’s what happened to me. I was wondering if it doesnt happen to every one, then it could be my moisturiser, sunblock, etc. But it was not as bad with other mineral makeup brands…… Yeah, I love EDM’s brushes as well!

  7. Kate Lin says:

    I recieved my samples yesterday
    And I am really positive despite 3 of samples didn’t match. My misstake not theirs.
    The foundations I ordered was the type”original glo”, the only one who match my skincolor left me with nearly perfect skin.

    I’ve ordered some more samples with hope those will match mys skincolor better. Thumbs up for everydayminerals!

  8. dolphina says:

    hi…can i check how u paid for it?first time ordering via US site driectly…any idea if itz more economical to pay directly or can go by vpost?thanks~!!!

    dolphina: If you’re referring to the samples, I paid about US$5 for the shipping which is reasonable. I’m not too sure what you plan to order, but vPOST has a base rate of around S$13 or $14 on top of the shipping cost. It could well work out to be over S$20 per shipping. So you need to compare with what EM charge you. It may not be economical unless you consolidate your orders from various sources. But vPOST is currently having a promotion so you can benefit from lower shipping if you use it now.

  9. Rachael says:

    I cannot wait to try these!!!

  10. Jody says:

    do the samples come with the brush as well? If no, then how do you use the mineral foundation and all that?

    Jody: No, the samples do not include the brush. You need to order separately.

  11. Simonne says:

    Wanna ask the photo you show on this page, are those free sample kit?
    Those sample can be use for very long time?

    Simonne: Yes, those are the samples. Each can last you about 5 or more application depending on how much you use. But my experience is you don’t need a lot for each application.
