Everyday Minerals Review & Giveaway


I've been a mama for almost 10 months. Before I was a mom I would get dressed up, wear crazy outfits, do my hair, and sometimes I'd even wear makeup. I was never the type of person to pile it on, I think less is more. It's amazing how even just a little bit of blush can make your feel more put together and less self conscious. In the past 10 months I have pretty much forgotten that makeup even exists at all until I decided that if I do use a little blush or a dab of eyeshadow, even a little lipstick now and then, it might make me feel better when I am out in world exposed to people. I'm a mom but I don't have to lose myself, and I can still feel pretty! 

Now, the trouble with makeup is that if you want something natural you are going to have a hard time finding it and it's probably going to be expensive. I was overjoyed when I discovered Everyday Minerals. They are all-natural, vegan, use organic ingredients, and the best part? Totally affordable mineral makeup.

Everyday Minerals also has an amazing website. Seriously, I am jealous of their great graphics! They are also based out of Austin, TX which is where I live, so I'm keeping it local!

Everyday Minerals was generous enough to send me a few items for review. I got to try the Come What May blush, Ginger Peach eyeshadow, and two lipsticks; Siesta and Golden Strawberry.

Come What May Blush

I have been wearing this blush daily. It has a pretty shimmer and it's light. There are two sizes for their makeup: big and sample. The big blush is only $8 (most blushes in drugstores that are not all natural cost more than that!), and the sample size is only $2.50. I love the sample option, it's nice to be able to try stuff out before committing to a full sized product. I am fair skinned and stay out of the sun and this is a great color for me. I think it's pretty universal and would look great on all skin types.



Ginger Peach Eyeshadow

I generally save eyeshadow for "special" occasions, but I've worn this eyeshadow several times. Just like the blush it has a pretty shimmer and it's light. You only need to use a tiny dab, so this container is going to last me a long time! I've used it as an eyeliner and covering my whole eyelid and I love it both ways. They have some really gorgeous colors, I might just have to buy myself a few of them. The eyeshadows come in the sample size and mini (which is the full sized product). The sample size is $2.50 and mini is only $6. Again, cheaper than a lot of other makeup out there (and definitely cheaper than other mineral makeup brands).

Siesta and Golden Strawberry Lipsticks

Lipstick is another cosmetic that I rarely wear. I asked for the Golden Strawberry because it looked fairly neutral and they also sent the Siesta to try out (the Siesta lipstick is the one pictured. They don't have the Golden Strawberry on their website anymore, sad). When I put these on for the first time I was so surprised, they are amazing! Both of these colors are so neutral you can wear them at any time. They are light, don't taste weird (or at all), and they just look great! I've found myself wearing these lipsticks pretty frequently, which is such a rare thing for me.

I would love to try everything! But without having to decide b/w all the millions of colors, I will say that I would like the lavender murumuru mint lip balm!

I use EM and LOVE it - I use the multitasking base. I stink at putting on makeup but this stuff goes on so well. I'd love to try their concealers too.

I only have a bout 2 days' worth of my mineral foundation left, so I'd love to try their version in fair neutral.

Do I only have to choose one item I'd like to try? I'd love to try several (Come What May blush, Theme Park blush, Soft Touch blush, Weekend Getaway blush, Wet Sand Lucent Face, Aussie Perk Me Up Concealer, Multi-Tasking Concealer)...

But OK, if I have to choose just one, I'd say the Walkee Talkee blush.:)
