I didn't have high hopes for this product, but I wanted to try this anyway. It gives moderate coverage and it's relatively creamy and smooth. It isn't heavy feeling at all on the skin. The downfall? The price and the fact that i've used it for 2 weeks and have already used a big chunk of it, so I will have to replace it often. It also lasts much longer than my Everyday Minerals foundation.

This was well worth the wait! So creamy and moisturizing, makes my lips look smoother, plumper in a gorgeous rosey shade. I'll be buying as many shades of this formula as I can :)
I just love EM's gifts! This is a nice light peachy beige shade with shimmer. I think it would be too light to show on medium skins or deeper. I have light to medium skin (mix of light and winged butter) and it gives the nicest peachy flush. Would definitely purchase if it became permanent

I'm so glad I got a free sample of this in my order, I would not have chosen this shade for myself otherwise. I used it wet as an eyeliner and it's a gorgeous metallic plummy shade. Gorgeous with brown eyes!

Beautiful gun metal packaging, $31 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart. The colour is a bright cool deep pink - Gorgeous in the tube and on the lips! I didn't notice any drying effect and lasted several hours on me (I took a nap and woke up with it perfect lips) This is a LE shade but there are a few shades similar to this one so if I run out, I can always get one from the regular line.

I can't help but stare at myself in the mirror all day with this on. I look happy, healthy and feel so pretty with this on my cheeks. It's a clear medium semi-bright pink, even with my warm skintone with strong yellow undertones, this isn't too cool or too bright at all. To get the perfect application I use my MAC 187 then gently pat on and blend with my fingertips. Looks great on the lips too. Luckily this isn't limited edition, or i'd be running back to the store for backups!
Loose Powders -Everyday Minerals - Natural Reflection Finishing Powder

I kept expecting this finishing powder to go on as gritty as the Silk Dust... but no. It's just as smooth and made my skin feel buttery soft as their regular foundations. I use this first as a primer to even out my skin, then again use a light dusting after my foundation. I wear a mixture of Light and Winged Butter foundations and the Light version of this is perfect for me.

An adorable sparkly pink! Reminds me of Benefit Dandelion, with more pigmented and just a touch deeper. A fun shade, looks so cute on!
What a delightful holiday shade! I was initally on the fence about this one... Until I used it wet. It's a gorgeous green with pinky-lilac flashes of shimmer. Used dry, it seemed to have a semi-matte base with slight shimmer, nothing over the top. I will most likely wear it wet as a fun eyeliner!
I found the pkging to be quite cheaper, similar to Lip Smackers, in a lilac and brown tube. This one was re-named Siesta after the blush. I thought it was a new colour, but it's not :( On my pigmented lips, it didn't show up and it seemed to drag across my lips. I didn't find it moisturizing at all. Overall a disappointment.
Eyeliner -Alima - Luminous Shimmer Eyeliner in Soiree

This is a lovely shimmery gun metal grey eyeliner. I found it was deeper and more dramatic used over a black gel eyeliner. On its own it's quite light and probably not dark enough to use as an eyeliner.
This one looked a little scary in the jar. It looks like a strong mauve shade, but once applied on my cheeks, it gave me the most amazing pink flush! This one is a matte finish, I can't wait to finish my sample and order the full jar!
I ordered a sample of this and they were super generous! The sample was nearly filled to the top. This is a fun reddish purple (versus bluish purple) that flashes blue. Lots of fun, I used this as a liner (wet) or on the lid, lasted all night

Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation Original Glo Formula

I love this formula. I have dry, dehydrated skin that gets shiny after a few hours. This foundation gave me flawless looking skin and keeps me shine-free the longest. Incredibly affordable as well. A great way to try is to order the free sample kit
