Powder -Everyday Minerals - foundation semi-matte formula

This is the perfect foundation for me. I dont need tons of coverage so its great. It keeps away any shine that may come up, but looks nice and fresh. I tried using BE with horrible results. Then I found EDM. Its wonderful! Very affordable too! I especially like that you can try it out first. I found my perfect shade with my first kit! Golden- Md. Tan. I was living in Florida at the time and was outside alot so I had more color then. Now that I'm up north again I've had to add a bit of one of the colors that were too light for me from the first trial kit. Its working out well with adding a little Beige-lt.tan or Beige-md.beige neutral. I just ordered another sample kit with the hopes of finding my perfect northern winter shade. lol If not, I'll continue with the mixing. I loooove this stuff so much. I am a fan for life!
I adore these shadows. I purchased 3 sample shadows with my first order. I then ordered the shadow sample kit (10 shadows for $18). I wanted to get another 10 today, and was disappointed to see that the kit is no longer listed on the website. I'm soooo sad. lol I will still order more anyway, but probably not 10 at a time. EDM prices are wonderful anyway though. So, I wont complain much.
My skin tans very easily, and this color is perfect for the summer. I do find that it's a bit too orange-ish for me right now in the winter. Start out with just a little. Its quite pigmented. But very pretty.
Love SilverSpoon! Its very pretty in the evening as part of a smokey eye look. I have even mixed a bit of this with Laptop as my crease color, and really liked the end result.
Ruby Sand is a beautiful, very pigmented color. I didnt find it to be orangey at all. Its very pretty as an accent color. Im not sure I'd really use much if I were a very pale-skinned person though. It could be overwhelming. I ordered the sample size, and theres quite a bit of product in there. Im not sure I'll need to buy it again. But its not because of the quality. It'll just take forever to use it all.
Concealers -Everyday Minerals - Multi-tasking Concealer

I ordered this one in my second sample kit. Its perfect for my under eye darkness. Since I quit using BE I dont get many breakouts to cover. The Pearl beige I tried first was much too light for me. I gave it to a friend, and she loves it. This one's perfect.
This is a beautiful shimmery color. It really works well with my aqua-grey eyes.
I really like this color. I mostly use it as a subtle crease color, paired up with Hot Chocolate. It blends wonderfully and looks great with pretty much all the colors Ive tried it with. Its beautiful all alone too! will most definitely re-purchase when I run out.
I got this blush color in my second sample kit. I think its a great color. It can be very natural looking, but also is very buildable. Its a great winter color for my skin. When I run out of the sample container, I'll definitely purchase a full size. Very nice
Hot Chocolate is my absolute fave EDM color!!! It looks nice alone, but also goes so well with many colors. I wear it almost everyday. I like to pair hot chocolate with Laptop in the crease. Its a nice subtle look that works well for my eye color, which changes from aqua-ish to almost grey, and sometimes pretty green.
Samples -Everyday Minerals - Free Sample Makeup Kit [DISCONTINUED/REPLACED]

I just wanted to give a quick review on the free sample kit. It just came today. My face is still broken out from using Bare Minerals. So , Im waiting for it to get completely better before actually using my EDM. I tried all the colors on my arm and the back of my hand. Im pretty sure I found my ideal foundation shade (golden medium-tan). I also ordered 3 eyeshadows(mistle-toe, sunset voyage, and ruby sand). Those look great also, as far as I can tell. I will give a complete review once I actually wear it. But I was so excited they came, I couldnt wait! LOL UPDATE!!! I finally got to try out my sample kit! wore it last 2-3 days. Love it so far. Golden-md tan is perfect for me. yay on the first try!!! LOL. I really like the shadows I ordered too. Nice color, no creasing on me, lasted all day. *** I just placed my order for a full size foundation, flat top brush, and 10 shadow kit today. I'm very pleased so far. These products looked very natural on my skin(even in the sun). No itching or anything. The semi matte gave the coverage I like. I will try matte and o-glo in a sample too. Just to explore all my options. EDM is looking good! Cant beat the prices!
I have lots of nail polish in many brands. WnW is just as good for me as any other. I like it because its inexpensive, and they have a huge array of colors. will buy again
My fave eyeliver out there. I Love Hurricane grey! My eyes are kind of turquoise and the Hurricane grey looks wonderful. I bout it one when I was out of town and lost my Black eyeliner somewhere. I got this color by mistake actually, but ended up loving it. I have several of these. One in my purse, one in the bathroom drawer, my train case, my desk at work. Just because if I ever lose it I know Ive got them stashed everywhere. lol Love love love hurricane grey!!!

I have had several of these over the years. I have ice princess, which are purple shades. I also have an older one that is mostly beige tan brownish colors. I may try crystal waters. The colors look good, wear all day on me, and dont crease. Definitely will buy again
Powder -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation
TYFFANI 11/26/2008 3:11:00 PM
This was the first mineral foundation I ever tried, and I was not impressed. The color was a nice match, but thats about it. I dont like that it is not a very fine powder like most. Like other reviewers have said, the brush sucks, and you cant pour it out into the lid like alot of other powders out there. I wont buy it again.
