Everyday Minerals Review & Giveaway [Ends 2/27]

I’m really loving natural mineral makeup these days. There are endless possibilities when it comes to colors and they are brighter and and more sparkly than any of you drugstore brands. I don’t even have to mention the fact that they are also better for you, because they contain no cancer-causing chemicals. I had the pleasure to review some products from Everyday Minerals and they sent me a great variety to try out and share with you.
Restful Blush - “A wearable pink shade to add just a hint of color to your blushing cheeks.”
I don’t have too much experience with blush, but wanted to try it out and see what effect it would have on my face. I got a natural looking “Restful” shade blush from their new arrivals section. It comes in a huge sifter container. What I love about this container is that the sifter part has a rotating cover over it, that way the blush doesn’t spill out into the lid. I don’t have a special blush brush or anything, but I have a small bronzer brush. I did what they always show on TV tutorials – smiled and applied blush to the cheek parts that were sticking out. It was super easy to apply and looked very nice! I was surprised to see that I didn’t look like a Barbie doll or anything. I just has some extra color on my cheeks and it made my face glow. Loving the blush!

High Tea Traders Lip Balm“Divine scents of Natural & organic Chamomile Essential Oil, Lemon Essential Oil, and a lip-loving 15% organic Shea Butter.”
The lip balm tastes like a sweet lemon candy. I love the sweet subtle taste, but not so much the texture. I found it too mushy, almost creamy. When I sweep it across my lips it too much off it comes off. However I’ve found a solution, I’ve just been using my fingertip to apply it, that way I don’t get too much on. I love that it’s 100% natural and has real chamomile, lemon and Shea butter. And not that this affects quality or anything, but I’m finding the images on the cover super cute! It’s got a girl on an elephant surrounded by chamomiles :)

Eyeshadows – I received 3 random colors of eye shadows. Definitely not the colors I would ever buy or even look at. BUT, they all ended up working great for my eyes! I used to be terrified of dark eye shadows, but that’s changed now. “In the Garden” from pearls eyes series has a brownish tone and can be used as a full eye shadow or an eye liner. “Concentrate” from shimmer eyes series is grayish and can also be used both ways. “Still Moments” also from shimmer series is a very light gray-white shade. It is one of those multipurpose shades which can be used as a highlighter with practically any other colors. I usually wear pink or purple shades and the light gray works very nice with both.
I couldn’t tell the difference between pearl and shimmer series. Both are very sparkly and very bright. I love bright sparkly colors so these eye shadows work great for me. Colors and sparkles stay on all day, don’t fade and don’t smudge. I’m very impressed with all my new eye shadows and would love to check out more of the shades.
Everyday Minerals carries a variety of all things makeup and also skin care. My favorite section to browse is collections. I love gift sets and they have some nice kits and eye shadow palettes. The make up kits are now on sale for only $20 (regular price $60.50)!

They also have different promos every week. With a $25 purchase you can get free extras. As well as free sample kits of face powders and $5 for each extra one. And they each contain 5 mini jars. I love their specials! It’s perfect when you are buying online, since you can’t try on the colors on the spot.

If you are not sure about shades or don’t need a full size, they offer sample/travel size and from what I’ve read in other review, these will actually also last you a long time. $4.50 for a travel size eye shadow in an actual container (not a plastic baggy) sounds like a steal!
