Mineral Makeup Collection Swatches

Recommended Posts

Shall we make a mineral swatch thread??? Posted Image

I think it will be nice for us to not only post swatches of eyeshadows and blushes; but also to post pics before and after foundation application so other members can see our skin tones and what shades we use; and this would help them pick their own shades.

 

I will post some swatches later this week. Posted Image

i love the idea. i'm going to quit using liquid foundation and going to start using mineral foundation. when i went to a BE boutique, i took off the liquid foundation i have on and i notice that i have so many bumps on my cheeks. i'm starting to have an interest in BE. so far, i am happy with their foundation. i'm heading back to the boutique in the mall hopefully on Monday to see what is the size of their foundation and comparing it to the one in Sephora. then once i compare the sizes, i'll purchase it along with a good brush to apply it with.

Periwinkle- those are awesome before and after pictures. I agree w/ blondie that the one with EDM looks the best. It gives you a certain glow that the others don't. Not that you don't look good in all of them..

Great thread idea!

 

Aileen, you look great in all of the pics! MMU didn't look that good on me! I should try again with Thais' "Eureka" sometime soon!

Thank you ladies! I kinda agree that the EDM FOTD looked the most photogenic, but I don't know, I'm kinda in a Monave kick right now. But thank you for the kind words, I will never go back to liquid/cake foundation ever again! Posted Image

 

Now it's time to post your before/after MMU pics! Posted Image

Thank you Thais for the incredible swatches!!!!

 

Really the EDM Weekend Getaway doesn't look so peachy, it's the 3rd from the top right? it looks more pink, the 2nd one from the top is super duper peachy I wannit!! LOL

 

I think I should order the Girl's Day blush it looks prettier and more warm than the Weekend Getaway :-(

 

 

WOW for the e/s swatches, really they're so helpful for me that I cannot see them IRL, now I want Sex on the Beach that I didn't like it before from the site's swatches!!!

Weekend Getaway is described as peach and pink blend . Probably if you want a peachy peachy blush from EDM, your best bet would be B&B blush - the pic is almost orange and it's described as "deep peach with soft fine sparkle"

I wasn't sure about the placement, but since this is the Official Thread ....

 

Here are some really helpful tools. Scroll down and checkout the "fiber optic " brushes--mini skunk brushes for the face and eyes. They pickup the most minute amount of minerals which is great because that's all you need! I'm gonna order the eye brush because I already have an EOB skunk.

So would you say that you use Light or Medium? Should non-tanned Asians use light or medium is my question.

 

periwinkle_sky, would you go with a light or medium foundation?

    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
