Shipping is about 3.97 so for 5 samples of product (1 blush, 1 concealer and 3 foundation powders) this is a great bargain. Gives you enough for 3-6 applications depending on how heavy you apply the powders. Great way to sample the colors and get a feel for what you'd like to order regular size.
Packaging is great, the shaker top helps to get just enough but not too much to use. But to take off the plastic sealers on the sample sizes, take off the plastic top, and use a paperclip to poke the plastic off (from the underside out).
This product line seems to be long lasting.
VERY happy with the line and this Sampler. Highly recommend Everyday Minerals.
This is a really great kit, especially if you're like me and have trouble finding your skin tone. You get 3 foundation colors (and they have a VERY extensive section with colors of all their powders and descriptions of that color), a concealer, and a blush. I think you can switch up the blush for an eye shadow. You pay about $3 shipping, and everything arrives fast! I'd highly recommend.
These are the best mmu samples I have received. They are in little sifter jars, and that makes it SO much easier to try the product, compared to the little baggies! Of the three companies I've ordered samples from, this was the best sample kit, and the cheapest. Shipped quickly and well packaged. (I have not tried the product yet, but this is not where I would review it anyway!)
This is a very useful product, both for women who are familiar with mineral makeup or those just wishing to try it. As I remember, it includes sample sizes of three foundations, a concealer, and a blush.
I chose Sandy Fair, Olive Fair, and Golden Medium for the foundations, Mint for the concealer, and B & B for the blush. After some mixing and matching, I found that 3 parts of Olive Fair and 1 part of Golden Medium was the best match for my skin tone; Sandy Fair was a little too pink. I will probably have to keep working to get the concealer just right. As for the blush, B & B is a very pretty pinky-coral color that seems to work on my face.
I like that the samples come in small plastic containers, similar to the full sizes. It's easier to manage than the little plastic baggies that other brands use. They're rather generous portions, so it'll be a while until I have to order the full size foundations. I'll probably use all of the B & B sample and then try a different one.
The kit products are free, though the customer must pay for shipping. My total was $3.97 via PayPal.
Overall, the kit is a great deal and I feel good about my purchase. continued >>
The word free to me is just a wonderful...wonderful thing.
This Free Sample Kit comes with a sample of foundations, concealer and blush. I think that's honestly a great deal. It helps you find the colors to see if they match for you. It's great because online your not always sure what your buying...the colors are different. So this helps incredibly. There's really no reason for you not to like this.
And I love Everyday Minerals also. =]
Everyday Minerals is a wonderful product. The matte foundation helps control oil and leaves my skin with a healthy glow. The blush is THE best blush I have ever used. You do not have to use much and you can actually tell that you are wearing it. I also purchased the Angled Blush Brush which works great and the Sooshco Baby Kabuki which I could do without. I highly recommend this product!
UPDATE: I have stopped using the foundation. I wore this product for a couple of weeks and then stopped after noticing that by mid day my face looked so oily. I had to use oil absorbing sheets everyday with this foundation. I have continued to use the blush though and still love it!
When Everyday Minerals claims that they offer a Sample kit, they arent kidding with you. They say that its enough product to wear for 1-3 applications, but I would have to beg-to-differ. One good sample kit could easily last me one to two weeks. If you are considering Mineral makeup I would highly suggest giving EM a try!
I love a good sample and this qualifies as a great sample. I think it says a lot about a company when they are willing to let you try their product in this way - it shows they have confidence you will be back to purchase their product. I know I did.
I LOVE the EM sample kits! They are so generous with the samples! They last forever! I am so thankful they give free samples otherwise I would be spending a lot of money trying to find the right color foundation! I just wish you could sample the finishing dusts as well. But hey we can't be too picky when it comes to free samples! :)
I received samples of the intensive formula, siesta blush and the multitask concealer.
The first time I tried it I loved it! But after a few hours, it started to melt and my face got really shiny. I started to blot more often, but I stuck with the foundation.
A few days later, I broke out in small bumps all over my face (learned later that a lot of people are allergic to MMU).
Kinda liked the idea of a simple & natural foundation, too bad I´m allergic.
I´m sticking with liquid foundation for now.
