I recently came across Earth Angel Minerals on etsy. I had been browsing different mineral makeup companies and was impressed by this shop. The policy page gives you a TON of info. I decided to try out some samples and did the "Any 5 samples for $5 ". I liked this deal because you could choose from eye pigment, blush, bronzer, concealer or foundation AND the samples come in clamshells not baggies!!
I receievd my order yesterday and was impressed right away. The packaging and labeling was perfect!
When it came time to pick my samples I decided to choose enough samples for my whole face.
My first pick was Buttercream. It is touted as a customer favorite and the description says it helps neutralize skin tones, conceals and can be used as an eye primer.
I used it on my eyes instead of my normal primer and I wasnt impressed with it, but it did work great as a concealer.
My second choice was a foundation. I chose Summer Beige.
My third choice was a bronzer. I LOVE bronzer. I normally use a cream bronzer but I think I like this version better.
I chose Love Me and Primary Purple as my eye colors. Love Me can also be used as lip pigment and as a blush! The owner sent me Kaleidoscope and Pink Ribbon as freebies!
I did a full face look with these samples.
Here is the before:
and the after
These pigments reminded me of my first experience with mineral makeup. It did not go well. I did not use my normal primer or NYX pencil, instead I used the Buttercream powder as primer. The pigments did not stick well nor were they very vivid. I applied it wet ( foiled) and they were brighter and very nice. When I swatched you can clearly see that a base/primer would have made a huge difference.
This company seems to really know what they are doing and they have quality products. I really like the bronzer and the foundation was nice. I would most likely buy some for my sister to use in place of her Bare Minerals. As for the eye pigments I would not buy again mainly because they colors all seem a bit too "tame" for me. They are all pretty but too neutral for my taste.
Ok, if you read through all of that then you deserve something!
I also got these 2 mineral eye pigments as freebies!
