MINERAL CONCEPTS Review

I have heard all the hype about mineral makeup and decided to give it a try for myself. I have to admit to being skeptical, and was even more so when I received the sampler kit from Mineral Concepts . The instructions said to use only the amount of this teensy little scoop that was included to cover my whole face! Suuuuuure, I thought, this is REALLY going to cover my WHOLE face!! UH-HUH!I have always been the type that uses both liquid foundation and powdered foundation to cover my discolorations. But I really wanted to give Mineral Concepts a shot so I used only what it said. Much to my surprise it covered my whole face and evened out my skin tone completely! It also felt so light and natural. Take a look and see for yourself!

Don’t you just love how it evened out my skin tone without looking really thick or heavy?

So why should you give Mineral Concepts a try? “Loose mineral cosmetics are the most natural cosmetic that a woman can wear. Mineral cosmetics are loose powders that have no fillers added to them. The powders are actually crushed minerals that have been extracted from the Earth's surface. These minerals are already in all cosmetics, but with many added chemicals.”

The makeup from Mineral Concepts has a very long shelf life, it is safe for all skin types, it’s wonderful for acne prone skin, it’s water resistant, AND it offers sun protection! This makeup is so easy to apply! Just brush it on your face, and voila! Instant makeover! Since you only use such a tiny bit of this makeup it is also very affordable!

Now it’s your turn to give Mineral Concepts a whirl! Head on over to that site, and check out the products! You will LOVE it!

Carol from Mineral Concepts has offered to give a Sampler Kit to one of my readers! This kit includes: 2 foundation powders, one velvet finishing powder, a blush, and an itty bitty kabuki brush. So now, I bet you are wondering what you have to do to win. Simply go check out the Sampler Kit and tell me what colors you would like to try if you won. Please be sure to leave me a valid email address so I can contact you or you will be disqualified.

  5. I'd love to try the sweet pea blush, velvet light, & the cream foundation. I think bare would be way to dark for me, but if I had to pick 2 different shades, I would do that.

    Great stuff, I have only tried the drugstore brand, I really want to try a nicer company.

    Your after picture looks great btw! You can really see a difference.
