Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation - Intensive formula [DISCONTINUED]

I've been using EDM for a few years and I LOVE IT!!! I have acne prone skin so coverage is important to me but my skin also needs to breath. This product delivers on both counts. Even if I do have a spot EDM does not further irritate it like liquid foundations can. The intensive formula is highly pigmented, matte finish giving you full coverage but your skin still feels light. Sometimes I forget I'm wearing make up at all! It is important to moisturize well as it is with all mineral make up because you will not be happy with the results if your skin is dry and flaky. The intensive formula is recommended for photos as it does not have the "sparkle" in it that some of their other formulas have. The full size pots are very generous and lasts a long time so don't be put off that you have to pay shipping, you will still come up on top with this product! EDM has such a wide range of colors it's very difficult not to find a perfect match. The product goes on quickly and easily. It's very easy to blend all the way down into your neck and chest area to give you an even appearance. Overall I cannot fault this product.
Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer

This is not a bad product but not the best either. I did find the color quite orange but that wasn't bad for me as I have olive skin so it worked as a brightener as well. This product does not give the appearance of smaller pores but it does give you a nice smooth base for your make up and it doesn't make your skin feel dry. It does extend my make by a little bit but I too have problems with an oily T-Zone as the day wears on. It's in the lower price range so I would buy this again. In very hot weather I use it with a pore refiner on my problem areas so I use less of my more expensive pore refiner and I get great results.
Treatments (Eye) -Nivea - Q10 Plus Wrinkle Control Eye Cream

I've been using this product for a few years and it really does work!. I can say that with confidence because at times I've tried using other, more expensive products with no results. The lines around my eyes are quite fine but I stopped using this product for a few months early this year to try a new one and I noticed my make up started to sit in the fine lines around my eyes (not a good look!). As soon as I started using my Nivea again I saw a difference. I no longer have make up sitting in the fine lines. My eye area is smoother and plumped and the lines are barely visible. This product is gentle on the skin, quick absorbing and can be used on sensitive skin. It doesn't irritate the eyes like many other products i've tried and the results don't wash away when you wash your face. I highly recommend this product. If you are skeptical about the product, go through a whole tube and then try something else. You'll definitely see the difference. Oh and at that price you can't go wrong!!!
Samples -Everyday Minerals - Free Sample Makeup Kit [DISCONTINUED/REPLACED]

Agreed with TheShe. I love EDM, a long time user but I do wish they had the old system where you chose your own sample colors and formulas. I'm generally light olive but my color does change with the seasons and the new sample packs is of no use to me because I only use intensive. The color actually changes quite alot depending on the formula you choose so keep that in mind. I would recommend getting your free sample and adding a mini of the colors you want to try in your chosen formulas. The minis are only $2.50.
