Everyday Minerals eye shadow


so excited. just received my second order from everyday minerals i think i have an addiction to this ordering online thing. kept on looking at their site now and then. any ways; i received this order only 1 week and 4 days after i ordered it. pretty fast for international shipping.

I ordered eye shadows this time because i found my match of foundation. pretty lucky on the first try. Here's what i Ordered:

Custom Kits Mini Eyeshadow Kit
- Snowflakes
- Emerald Eyeliner
- Floating Feathers
- Dark Brown Brow Colour
- Cypress
- Dairy
- In the Garden
- Silver Spoon
- Thank you
- Baby Bath

I also ordered mint concealer and Email Me Blush. they are so pretty. haven't taken any pictures yet. But might upload later. can't wait for EDM to have their new site up and running with all the new products. I personally really like Snowflake & Dairy. The colour of Baby Bath is really good too; it's subtle but u can still see. and if you use it with Oasis. looks fabulous for brown eyes.

hehe experiment the different colours and see which you suits you the best. i'm still in the process of experimenting with all my new eye shadows.

Jurlique is an all natural, herbal based product range. It's not some miracle products like people think. I personally think it's more of a long term effect products just like sunscreen. helps to protect and maintain your skin that's why some people won't be seeing instant result but you can tell there is a difference of your skin after a week of using Jurlique products. I have personally used 4 prodcuts from Jurlique and compare to The Body Shop i think Jurlique is more natural in terms of ingredits.

Herbal Recovery Gel
Rebalance Oiliness, Dryness & Maintain Balance
A Potent restorative botanical concentrate, infused with a rich blend of herbs and precious plant oils to restore, film, hydrate and help renew skin vitality.

I use it like a toner at night because I find it not moisturising enough for my skin (normal combination) so I need to put on extra layer of moisturiser. It's texture is like a watery kind of gel which gets absorbed quickly into the skin and leaves no weird residues. I think dry skin type people will find it not moisturising enough but this gel helps restore your skin from everyday's damage from the sun, pollution and etc. I guess the long term effect would be slowing down the aging process and give ur skin the natural treatment rather than slapping on those harmful chemicals.

Rose Water Balanacing Mist
Maintain Balance
A hydrating mist, rich in living energy of rose and marshmallow to restore, tone and hydrate.

I love this mist, it smells wonderful and feels so refreshed. It gets absorbed into the skin really fast and you could feel the difference straight away. I was using acne treatment system which dried out my skin so i decided to give that a go; and I couldn't believe the result. my skin feel supple again instead of flaky and dry and rough. Some people use it as a refresher or hydrater on the Plane, I guess it would work because it gave me instant result. love it. couldn't ask for more.

Balancing Day Care Cream
Maintain Balance
A light, absorbing moisturising cream infused with the living energy of daisy, chammomile and rose and precious plant oils to hydrate and minimise the visible signs of aging.

I'm not too sure about the minimising the signs of aging bit. also I think the cream is a bit too oily for my normal combination skin. If I apply this to my entire face with in an hour or so, my face would go oily. I tried using it at night only, still find it too oily. so I now use it as an eye cream. LOVE it... it's so gentle for eyes, when i get up in the morning the skin around my eye area feels supple and no fine lines what so ever. I know people say early 20s don't get fine lines, wrinkles and things but I would rather prevent it than trying to get rid of it when my skin starts to wrinkle. Also another good item for eyes would be the Arnica Cream. if you have bruises, puffy, panda eyes, it's really good. my mum uses the Arnica Cream for her eye bag and the dark circles, you could see a difference in about a week. Of course she tried to catch up as much sleep as she could.

Everyday Minerals

Couple weeks ago, came across everyday minerals website and read about their totally natural products. I was quite skeptical about this cuz I'm new to this whole make up thing so went onto makeupalley and check out the reviews. WOW; so many good reviews about this so i had to try it. So i browsed around the site to try and find the shade of foundation which i think is right for me; so i went ahead and purchased it. After a LONG wait for about 2 weeks later (international postage), finally it arrived. So excited about the products and can't wait to try them on.

Here is what i ordered:

Personal Custom Kit - Full
concealer: Multi-Tasking Concealer
brush: New Flat Top Brush Brush Size
foundation: (Beige) Beige-Fairly Light Intensive
foundation: (Buff) Buff-Light Neutral Semi-Matte
finishing powder: Finishing Dust Large
eye color: Oasis Large

Free Sample Makeup Kit
concealer: Multi-Tasking Concealer
foundation: (Cool) Cool-Multi-Tasking Neutral Semi-Matte
foundation: (Buff) Buff-Beige Neutral Intensive
blush or face color: Everyday Bronzer
foundation: (Buff) Buff-Light Neutral Original Glo

The foundation is like WOW, goes on so well and has great coverage not too thick and look cakey. But do have one concern that is if you have dry flaky skin it will show. so make sure to scrub and moisturize well. So instead of just reading those review; i'm glad that i give it a try plus the price is so affordable. not like some other mineral make up out there which will make ur wallet bleed.

oh and I love Oasis!! it's such a beautiful colour, a lightbrown/gold with shimmer not too dramatic and so pretty for people who has brown eyes. so i went ahead and purchased the 10 mini eye colour kit. But not too sure about the staying power; though eye makeup base is recommended to enhance the colours.
