EG Minerals Porn !!!!
I received all the MMU samples today and I'm totally loving them. I fell in love with this company when I got to try out their pretty eye shadow pigments and blushes, so I just had to try out their foundations. The shipping is very reasonable, if your purchase is under $30, the shipping only costs $2.50, domestic or International !!!
I purchase the Get Acquaintance Kit containing 3 shades of Foundations, 1 Blush & 1 Finishing Powder. I chose all foundations in Cover Me Formula as I have many acne scars & discolorations, I just prefer medium to full coverage.
I have to say their foundations are AWESOME, it feels so creamy (yes, a creamy powder foundation ^^) and not cakey at all. The "Cover Me" formula does live up to the name, it really does cover my redness, acne scars and discoloration. Their other formula called "Youthful Glow" offers lighter coverage and some glow to brighten the face. I've seen it on other customer FOTD and it doesn't look sparkly or scarily shiny, I might give it a try just to compare.
I chose 3 shades from 2 different undertone: Ria & Gabrielle from Warm/Peach family and Jeanne from Yellow family. Right off the bat I knew Ria would be too dark so I pass it and would use it to contour my face : ) don't waste a thing, y'all !
Again, I'm very impressed on how great the coverage is, I did not apply the foundations chin & forehead area so you guys could compare how covering they are on my cheeks area. My forehead is nasty at the moment, many red scars & tiny bumps :(
Jeanne was applied on my right side and Gabrielle on my left.
Jeanne & Gabrielle
Both look like a good match, no?
I honestly like both hehehe what do you guys think?
I also received several blushes, so here are all EG Minerals I have so far, aren't they purrrrty?
I'm sure by now you can tell I'm such a blush whore XD
Some are very sparkly, like Airlee and Strawberies & Cream but they are still wearable. I am in love with these blushes...my favorite would be: Carmindy, Bali, Deep Japanese Plum and Melon.
When I saw Carmindy it reminds me of Everyday Minerals Sunday Brunch blush, they're both matte as well, so I compared the two. Side by side in the jar they do look similar, don't you think? but Sunday Brunch turns out to be a little deeper than Carmindy. Both are absolutely gorgeous.
I ordered 3 pigments on 1st row and I got another 3 as freebies, they're LE : ) Hunter looks gorgeous.
There's a funny story why I ordered Azores Bronzer & Samoan Glow....I live in Azores Street and my neighbour next door is Samoan. LOL
I also ordered Facial Primer Gel, it's only $5.00 so I thought I'd give it a shot, it comes in cute tube bottle, the size is 2 oz so it'd last for a while. Here's a picture of it with a free Kabuki Brush that comes with my trial kit:
Last one, my impression of this
mini MICRO Kabuki Brush....it's rather scratchy !!!!
Thanks for reading all.
