Affordable Mineral Makeup Review

I was sent some wonderful samples of this mineral makeup from Affordable Mineral Makeup. The first jar is the #1 Foundation, which is for the lightest skin tones with a pinkish tint. I have very light skin so this one worked really good for me. The second jar next to the foundation is the Bisque Concealer. This color works best for light skin tones but can work with medium and tan skin tones.

One great thing about this concealer is that it aids in oil absorption. I really liked both of these products because it gave me a light cover without looking fake. The older I get I have found that I cannot wear alot of the liquid makeups out there anymore. They tend to seep into the wrinkles or wrinkles I did not know I even had!

The third jar is the Defense Primer which helps minimize the appearance of pores and fine facial lines. It also helps foundation, blush and eyeshadow last longer. The neat thing is that it acts like a defense against the daily stress from our environment. The Primer helps reduce the appearance of Rosacea and helps with acne.

Apply the primer before applying concealer and foundation to have a smoother finer area to apply the rest of your Affordable Mineral Makeup. Here is what some of the colors look like on my hand.

Most makeup artist's tell you to use your back of the hand because it matches your face the best:

The black jar is Ebony eye liner that is very versatile going from sheer, dry shades of charcoal across the lid to intense, bold wet-lined eyes, this black mineral makeup is a something we should all have.

I loved this because I could make this either go very light or dark. I am not a fan of very dark colors so I made mine more a grayish color.

But if you like drama, this is the thing for you! I used the Ebony eye liner here but again, remember I like it very light so it does go on on darker but I smudged to get a softer look also I did have the foundation and concealer on even though all I am showing is the eyes, you can also see some of the color I used on my face:
I chose the Shell Blush because I wanted something soft but still noticeable with just a hint of shimmer. This color definitely did want I wanted. They have so many colors to choose from that you will have a hard time trying to figure out what you want. They also have bronzers but I tend to go more for the natural color so I liked the lighter shades the best. You won't believe the colors you have to choose from.

Lastly, I chose the Opaque Veil because it minimizes flaws and wrinkles. Alot of models and actors choose veils because they get a better picture while wearing them. The Opaque Veil is a light beige that won't change the color of your foundation but gives you a beautiful face. You are going to love this stuff! I have never seen anything quite like this before. It works magic on your face and makes the light reflect off your face deflecting anything you wish to keep hid!

This comapany has alot more products but I only reviewed the above items. I did not get any of they eyeshadows because I have so many already but when I do use them all up I will try those next. They also have mascaras, body shimmers, brushes, eye liner pencils and cosmetic shimmers.

Oh, they also have creams and essential oils for whatever your concerns are! There is alot to choose from so you will surely find something that will catch your eye.

I always try to quote something from each company that I review and here is the quote that I thought summed up their company and their products:

Our mineral cosmetics are not only eco friendly, they are animal friendly. Unlike other products, no ingredients are used in our mineral makeup that would result in harm to animals. For these reasons and many others, selling our mineral makeup line from home is a great way to earn while you provide access and information to your friends and their friends about the natural beauty and eco friendly benefits of Affordable Mineral Makeup.

A very important part of our mission is making products available to women that not only provide a healthy and natural beauty, but can greatly benefit women with sensitive skin. Mineral makeup is made with minerals that are sterilized and pulverized into a very fine powder and then mixed with a variety of natural inorganic colorings to produce a variety of shades. For anyone with sensitive skin or skin problems like rosacea, dryness or acne, our mineral makeup products do not have Bismuth Oxychloride, will not exacerbate these problems and are skin-friendly.

Mineral makeup is also well-suited for hiding wrinkles, crow's feet and fine lines because it reflects sunlight so effectively. Using mineral makeup will result in a very healthy and natural look. Most women discover less irritation and dryness from mineral makeup compared to other types of cosmetics.

Hi Mary...thanks for the follows on my blog Mamalou's Gems. I have followed you back. I am checking out the page for this makeup line. I love that they have matte eyeshadow as that seems to be hard to come by in the mineral lines and as I get older, the bling in my eye shadow seems to emphasis my Have a wonderful week!
