I always wanted to try mineral makeup but the one in the market is expensive and size is too big. I dare not to commit in buying for fear of not liking it and waste money. Then I saw Ann posted about it and saying that you can get free samples from EverydayMinerals.com by only paying postage fee which is less that USD5. There are many websites that sell mineral makeups but they are very expensive, luckily there’s this site that let you try for free.
So I placed my order and it was shipped out on 28th August 2008 from Texas, US. It reached me on 18th September. What I did with it? Take photos of coz!
Here you go… Upclose.
This is the blusher called Summer Stroll, it can be used as eyeshadows too. It’s orange in colour when I see it in the mirror with natural light but when I took photo with natural light and no flash, it has tinge of yellow if you notice in all the photos here. I used Fawn as highlight coz it’s too white for my face.
The before and after is no concealer and with concealer. I tried to blend some foundations into the concealer, I lost track already ;p All I know is that I tried all three and even layer all three *LOL* coz I don’t want to spend too much time tinkering with it, just simply blend this and blend that hoping to get some luck. Even layered it with my Maybelline Angelift Foundation. It’s not the effect I’m hoping for. Need more experimentations again. Need to find time for it. Should have time after my exam.
Here are the foundations on different spot of my face:
Left: Light Olive in semi-matte, not suitable, you see the yellowish greenish tinge there?
Middle: Fawn in intensive, too white, see the darker and lighter shade? The lighter shade is the foundation spot. Ignore the shiny part coz it was the light from the window but it’s obvious enough it didn’t blend with my skin colour. It’s that obvious right? In small area, it’s not obvious but when you are to apply it on your whole face, you will see the very pale me 😛
Right: Medium Olive in intensive, it seems to blend pretty well on my forehead *LOL* The previous two were on my cheeks. When I see it in the mirror the colour was fine but in the photo here it seems like having two different shade. Photos taken with natural light with no flash.
So? *SHRUG* Hahaha…. No Idea ;p I haven’t got any brush to fully experiment it. I was applying it with fingers and cotton bud to test the shades. I’m in the process of making the second sample along with the brushes but the baby kabuki is still out of stock. It’s great for sample use. I will wait till they restock it so the full experimentation of the foundation will only be done once I got hold of the brush. Thought of ordering the bigger sized kabuki but it’s more expensive. This will maybe wait for the 3rd sample order provided I ran out of some of the previous two samples.
Tempted? Go order one sample and try it out hehehe… You get 5 small jars and only cost you less than USD5. I can tell you that these jars can last for quite a while.
Move it down, it’s an eyesore on top coz too long *LOL*.
Oi! Still waiting for my drama is it? Told you already, you won’t be seeing it. Or I should join in the bandwagon in creating that post? I’m not free la! I’m very busy ar… Composing that post can easily take me one whole day to do it. However, I do appreciate the traffic that you give me 😉 Hmmm… Since you are so hardworking kept dropping by, let me give you some rewards for your hard works rather than nothing.
Yes, it was never mine at the beginning but I was “forced” to take on the responsibility due to me being so soft hearted. I had already warned that person very early in the begining that there will sure be things like this happening one day but I was assured that there will not be. I never really bother until I had to pick up bits and pieces that was left behind by some people and that’s how I got involved in it. If not for those, you think I would even care? I would have to thank these people else all the issues will never surfaced. Go ahead, hate me as you like, I had anticipated such thing to happen coz this is not the first in my life.
It’s only in fairy tale that you help each other, supporting each other and all the good things that you mentioned. I was a believer in that but not anymore after going tru’ so many cases like this. If the person is hopeless, it’s hopeless, no matter how much love you shower on them. It will only work if they realised it themselves but sadly how many people will? Minority la… Got try better than nothing. Everything has its limit and YES my limit has reached, just like all of you.
Happy now? Got the drama? In fact there are more but I’m really lazy already coz everyone got their own view and there will never be any ending to it. I have other more important things to do.
I never proclaim that I’m the founder, all I did was gave any help or support that was needed. You can read more here from one the founders to know about the details but it’s in Chinese ;p
