****Everyday Minerals Foundation ****
For quite a few months i have heard that mineral foundation is the best you can get so when i saw it on offer on everydayminerals.com i decided to give it a try.
**About the brand**
Everyday minerals is " a real-life company -- breathing and growing through the seasons with all of you, intent on having fun and enjoying the simple beauty of life, friends, and family."They sell cosmetics at affordable prices and since they want you to try it they offer a free sample package where all you pay is postage and packaging (they don't even limit how many samples you try)They are very environmentally conscious -all their products arrive in recycled paper etc
**Different kinds of foundation**
I can always remember the first time i got asked what kind of foundation i was after from a make up artist......i must have given them such a confused look. At that point foundation was foundation okay so some were liquid and some were powder but that's it right?.Nope apparently not. Everyday Minerals only offer powder foundation but they offer several kinds...
Original glo-healthy dewy glow. This is the only one in the range i haven't tried so cannot comment on it.
Semi-Matte -a soft luminous touch
Matte -radiant without shine -these are both really good so i would recommend either.
Intensive -extra coverage . Either be really careful you get the exact right skin shade for this or apply really lightly. When it says it covers your face they really mean just that!!!
The coverage in all of these are really good i would say get the matte if you have more oily skin. These all give you flawless skin and they last all day long.
The above actually comes after you have picked out the right shade.They have a really wide selection of shades to pick from and if you need help go to the faq link on the foundation page and it will help you pick one based on skin colour,eye colour,hair colour..
There are six different headings to choose from based on your skin type and these then have different shades to help you find the perfect one for you.
Warm-soft butter peach,warm-medium beige,warm-buttered tan,warm-medium beige summer,warm-sandy medium and warm tan.
Golden--golden fair,golden fawn,golden light,golden-winged butter,golden-medium tan,golden medium deep
cool-fair ,fair-medium,medium,multi tasking neutral,medium summer,pink tan,peach and deep tan
beige-sandy fair, sunkissed fair,fairly light, light medium,medium beige neutral and light tan.
Buff-fair neutral,ivory,fairly light neutral,linen,light neutral,beige neutral,perfect and fairly summer.
Olive-fair,light,golden medium,olive medium,sweet almond,light almond,light martian,neutral and sandy olive.
As you can tell from that list there is so many to choose from so check the guide for help.
The products themselves come in round tubs with the name of the company on them.These feel quite light on with the exception of the intense one which feels heavy.
**Price and where to get**
These are available from everydayminerals.com . The sample kit cost around £3.80 after the exchange rate and you get 3 foundations,1 concealer and 1 blush. Each foundation tub lasts about 1 week which still makes it really cheap as the 3 jars last over 3 weeks...Individual sample pots cost $2.50 or you can get the big pots for $12.00-on the site they recommend getting the sample size as it lasts for ages(bigger sample size than the free sample size).You can also get bigger kits where you pick 6 items for $34 (postage $9)or 12 for $50.00.
I would recommend this product to everyone,well almost. They don't have foundation for people with really dark skin just from pale to dark olive. The prices are fantastic and i think it suits most peoples budgets. The only thing i would say about getting the sample sizes is that the pots are a wee bit smaller so i would recommend using travel sized brushes with these. My samples have always arrived within a week despite it coming from America.
Summary: go buy!!!!
