Signature Minerals

Recommended Posts

Just wondering, is Signature Minerals anyone's HG? I first tried them a few months ago, and I found my color match, but I was at all impressed with their staying power, even with primer. Plus, their translucent veil made me look like a ghost!

 

But, yesterday I decided to give them another go! This time I dusted on Petal veil first, then applied their 2.3 Light Beige foundation, and put their Roseberry blush on my cheeks, and finished off with Petal. Let me say this time, I was very impressed! It actually lasted until nightime! I guess the Petal as primer worked well for me. =)

 

Here's some pics; the first with flash, the second with no flash.

EDIT:

 

Alright, let me say that I am VERY pleased with the staying power of SM when it comes to sweating... as long as I use petal as a base, my MMU stays in place! Yesterday I worked out really hard and sweated a whole lot.. and my mmu didn't budge! I was so impressed! I'm definitely going to have to order a full size of Petal!!

Well, Signature looks lovely on you smile.gif I have both the Petal veil and 2.3 Lt. Beige foundation samples. I like Signature quite a bit, but I didn't get a match with my first and only set of samples, and I haven't tried them again because I've been sampling a lot of other brands instead. I think I remember it felt a bit drying on my face when I first tried it.

 

I did however try the 2.3 Lt. Beige yesterday mixed with LaurEss Gentle Neutral and I was surprised at how long it lasted! The LaurEss made it feel less drying and gave me a bit of glow, which was nice since I find Signature to be pretty matte by itself. The colour was surprisingly good, too. 2.3 Lt. Beige is a bit too dark on its own for me and the Gentle Neutral lightened it up some.

 

Anyway, I'm glad you found a combo that works for you smile.gif Signature stuff is great and really inexpensive as well.

I also love signature mineral. They eyeshadow are my favourite. For me it was hard to find really good e/s color in MMu. Some of the companies selling way too stong colors with toooo much shimmer which is more suitable for girls below 20( e.g Fyrinnae , MAD minerals). Some other companies selling matte e/s with boring shades with maybe ok if you are a senior, but I do not feel that old yet smile.gif So I a think is hard to find suitable e/s color for professional working women for daywear.

Signature minerals just has the perfect color palette. Semmi matte and pearls shades are my favourite and you can wear them day or night and give you a sophisticated professional look.

My other big favourite in signature minerals light touch concealer. Just love it. Every caucasian women should try it. (It may be too light for women of color though)

They lip color also a must try! One of the best lip product in MMU. I tried out lumiere lip colors which are preatty but, with a maximum 2 minutes staying power. EDM lip colors are ok, but not as good as Signature one.

However I tried every possible shade of their foundation without match. 1.0 is too light 2.0 is different undertone, 2.3 3.0 4.0 are too dark. Somehow all of the foundation gave you a suntanned look, which is nice. But I live in Canada where half of the year is winter, so the sunkissed look makes an artificial impression. I might use 2.3 at the summer though.

i've read somewhere that SM is a Monave reseller (i could be wrong though), but their descriptions are very much alike...eg. SM foundation #4 vs. Monave CF Paula, SM Petal vs. Monave Glisten, etc.

 

maybe someone can confirm this?

simplicity:

I do not know about this, but it sound very unlikely.

Monave full size jar foundatyion: $25

Singnature full size jar foundation: $12

What is the business to"resale" a product less then half price???

Based on the price the opposite could be true, but I do not think so.

I do not know how close their formula , because I never tried Monave, because of its price.

I checked those mentioned description, and for me does not sound the same. Just because this particulqar shade targeting Asian skintone???? Most of the MMu have foundation olive shades, because asian women is large market.

I think I heard that before. However, I believe that Mineralmakeupwholesale a/k/a Coconutbaycosmetics are distributors for: Signature, Monave and perhaps many other labels. The reason for the different prices can possibly be determined on whoever is selling "their" product under their label. Basically, you can sell it at whatever price you feel comfortable with. I even heard of companies raising their prices to increase sales - the reason being if they "value" the product more, the consumer will too. I just go with whatever works for me, and then try to find the least expensive one. I've tried them all, and I have to say that they all work for me and look quite nice. Check it out for yourselves. You'll see that many of the colors are even named the same names. I also have "Petal" and like it very much.

 

Another thing I've noticed is you can increase the staying/adhering power of most any mmu by using a base of "serecite." I noticed that it is the first ingredient of many of the brands (lumiere) which people rave about incredible staying power. You can purchase a pound of it from Coastalscents (when on sale) for $9.00. Just swirl, sweep some on your face underneath your first layer of foundantion and you'll be amazed at the increase in staying powder. Try it.

 

People who complain about EDM rubbing off should especially try this. I don't have a problem with it, however, I do notice the increased "creamy" texture of my foundation when applying the serecite underneath it. Good stuff. goldcup.gif

 

BTW - I like Signature as well. Use what works for you even if the majority of the people don't like it. You look incredible in your photo - so if it works for you, and it obviously does, then use it!rocknroll2.gif

Simplicity, I wrote to Signature way back when I was sampling them (early Spring) and asked if they were a Monave re-seller b/c they had the same names for blush, etc and they wrote back and said they were not. I tried the foundation and couldn't get a match, and I also ordered some blush shades. They were nice, but not HG material for me. And the shades I ordered (same name as Monave) were not the same colors. HTH!

I love signature minerals. I have very bad acne breakouts that are hormonal, so no products really help, but evertime I wear my signature minerals concealer and foundation my mom comments me on how my skin is clearing up, every time, lol. How is their primer?? I have been wanting to try this as well as their skin care stuff, they didn't have all that last time I ordered!

I haven't tried their primer. I used to not have to have to use any primer with their foundation as long as I put on their angel veil as a base - my makeup would last all day. But I havent worn my Signature minerals in a loooong time.

I have returned to SM after using other MMU. There is no need to use a primer with it. Im 47 years old, and this is the only mmu i have used that doesnt make my lines and pores show up. But; do not apply it the rough way with a lot of buffing! I apply it with a fluffy powder brush, and then it looks lovely. Believe me, you dont have to buff Signature Minerals MMU.

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
