Everyday Minerals Review

Everyday Minerals is dedicated to preserving the planet Each of their products is handcrafted and contain only the finest ingredients. Founder Carina Menzies believes that all natural makeup products should not cost a fortune and has created a line that is not only long lasting, versatile, gentle on the skin but is also affordable for the everyday woman.
I was given the opportunity to review several products from their fall collection.
Everyday Minerals Blush in Girl Friday and Ambrosia
Everyday Minerals Eye Shadow in I Do Declare, Flourish, and Wild Flowers
Everyday Minerals Brow Defining Kit which includes: Dark Brown Eyeliner, Mrs. Coffee Eyeliner, Rare Silk Eye Shadow, and an Angled Bamboo Brush
I do not claim to be an expert when it comes to makeup. I know what I like and I think I do a pretty good job applying my own. I am also not someone that ventures out of the neutral shades of eye makeup so I really loved the eye shadows I was sent. They are colors that I would purchase and wear daily. I have to admit I was a little scared to open up these up. I have never used loose shadow before and I imagined I would make a huge mess. Fortunately Everyday Minerals has created the perfect little container. It has small little holes that your brush can easily pickup color through without creating a colorful dusty mess everywhere. I found that these shadows were easy to apply and work great at creating a smokey eye.
The Brow Defining Kit sells for only $10.99 and is perfect for filling in sparse eyebrows or creating a defined brow. I found I could use the Rare Silk Eye Shadow to lighten my eyelids making them really pop. It also works at creating the illusion of bigger eyes. I admit I had a little trouble with the eyeliner, I am used to using an eyeliner pencil or liquid liner. I had trouble creating the even dark line that I usually create. Again I think this works better for creating a smokey lined eye or maybe I just don't know what I am doing. : )  I really love the brush that came in this kit so much so that I am looking into buying some of the larger bamboo face brushes.
As for the blush, I went ahead and gave a friend of mine the Ambrosia shade because I found it was much darker then what I am used to. I prefer a subtle rosy glow and I found that Girl Friday gave this to me. It is very easy to get just a slight hint of color or a deep colored cheek with this blush by using a large face brush.
I really enjoyed my experience with Everyday Minerals and I would suggest if you haven't already to give them a try.
