Mineral Basics Review and Giveaway CLOSED



Many years ago I listened to some friends and began using mineral foundation and I've been using it exclusively ever since. But I'd never tried mineral eye shadows despite always wanting to. When I received my samples I was so excited to try them. I got wide array of colors, many well out of my normal neutral (VERY neutral) palette. And I was mazed at how easy it was to get a look I liked. I have to apologize for the lack of photographic evidence of my endeavorer but promise I tried...I just simply couldn't come up with a self portrait of my eyes that didn't make me look either bug eyed or stoned. So for matter of self confidence I have excluded any photos.

But I loved how easily you change the intensity of your color depending on how you applied it and how much you smudged it. I'm definitely now a mineral EYE girl as well as foundation.
If you haven't tried mineral make up, I really truly recommend it. Its amazing coverage without the makeup-y feel!

Here is a very small sample of the items you can find at Mineral Basics.


Wanna try it? You can win a sample pack including 15 eye shadow shades!
