Everyday Mineral Review

A few weeks ago I received my sample of Everyday Mineral ( check out that blog for pics ), They do have a lot of shades and it honestly took me a long time pick what I wanted in my sample kit. Just take a few minutes and read the descriptions. I think it really helped me. Two out of three shades were perfect for me.

- Buttered Tan ( intensive base )
- Winged Butter ( semi matte base )
These two shades together were perfect for me. Love it.
- Medium Beige Neutral ( semi matte base ), Eh this is okay.
- Multi-tasking ( concealer ). Honestly it did nothing for me.

I've been using this for 3 and half weeks and I love it! I use it everyday and the sample container still looks really full. I would definitely order the Flat Top Brush to apply the foundation.

As for the two blush,
I love em too. If I you can only order one. I would recommend Summer Stroll.

-Salon fun, it's purple! but I think it applies like bronzer. Made me look a little tan.
-Summer stroll, tangerine-ish with a little be of a sheen.

I was looking for a dup for Shiseido's "Tangerine Margarine" which they discontinued. Pretty sad. This is pretty close. It even closer when I use it on top of MAC Joyous.

I will most likely order the full size.

NYX Cosmetics

Another Haul..? Don't judge me! For what it's worth I waited for a sale before I got them. CherryCulture.com had everything 20 % off in March.

As you know every purchase comes with this free lip gloss.

NYX pearl Mania and Art Deco nail polish.


Puahaha, there were $2.80 each after the discount!


If you can only get one thing from NYX, you have to try these Jumbo Eye pencil. They are so soft and creamy.

Can you give me a dollar for food and coffee ?

I was on the train early in the morning. I heard a voice
coming behind me "can you give me a dollar for food and
coffee?". It was an old Indian man. I must say that was the first
time. But I guess you can't classify being broke by ethnicity. How bad
do you need the money if you have to start at 830 in the morning?

Eddie and I often try to support the ones that really look like they
need the money. I know that's prob not the best way but that's the
easiest for us.

This man had white hair. No one gave him money in my car. I reached to
get my dollar but he left the train.

Who wouldn't want to feed an old man?

Bolt

Happy Easter to everyone! ( sorry a day late ) I personally refer to this holiday the "egg holiday". We really don't celebrate it.

What did you do this weekend? I had an amazing time in Lancaster! =) Had my first Fuddruker 1/3 burger. It was mighty good!

On Sunday, I organized my makeup (again) . Oh yes I bought beads container to hold loose shadow/ pigments. GDI, I really hate talking about makeup ALL the time but it's so fun to organize things.

Watched the movie Bolt this weekend. My bro didn't think it was that good but I "more then like it" but "less then love it". I will watch it again tho.


Really cute movie.

No more The Limited

It's official. I no longer have a reason to visit The Kings Plaza mall. They closed down the Limited store!! WHY?!! I am actually quite upset. The next closest Limited store is in the Staten Island mall and Wow it's 10 Washingtings to cross the Verrazano?

I guess I can always place an order on their website.

MAC MAC MAC

I had a really long day at work. By lunch time I really needed a pick me up. Perhaps some retail therapy? I went to the Company Cosmetics Store with my coworker and basically paid (in my opinion) probably too much for two MAC products (did I mention that I'm cheap?) I mean, I had two perfectly good reason to buy them.

1. I don't own ANY MAC eyeshadow. I deserve at least one right?
2. I don't own ANY MAC paint pot. I deserve at least one right?

I know I know... anything to make myself feel better. Haha but thanks Hun. I love em'.

I am pretty sure you need to work for a company to purchase items from the
Company Cosmetics Store.

Everyday Mineral

Yeah!! I finally received my order of Everyday Mineral. My boyfriend recently moved to a building with a door man so I figured I can just ship it to his place. Great idea right?? wrong.... I put down the wrong address and the shipment was return to the company and I'm out $3.68 for shipping and handling. Anyways, after all of that I reordered and received my order on Saturday!

They have a free sample kit that you can order, all you have to do is pay for shipping. Not bad right? They have a HUGE selection of shades (43) the sample kit is suppose to help you pick the color best for you.

Here is what you get in the sample kit:














The website will ask you to choose 3 different foundations, a concealer and a blush.
Blush was a recommendation from a Youtube Makeup Guru (YMG), in Summer Roll.

Since I'm paying for shipping already. I bought two more items =/ . What's pretty cool about the company is that, you can buy sample sizes for $2.50.














I got the
- Black eyeliner (right), it's kinda different since it's a powder. I haven't tried it yet.
- Another blush, in Salon Fun (left), a YMG recommendation.
- and Flat Top Brush also a YMG recommendation.

I used the foundations and the blush today. I must say it's not bad but I'll have to see in maybe about a week.
