My Everyday Minerals Spree

image

Have you heard of mineral makeup?

Well, I’ve heard quite a lot of reviews raving about this, and so I wanted to try it out.

The mineral makeup products available in Singapore are (1) limited and (2) costly.

And so of course, I decided to venture online!

One of the recommended websites was Everyday Minerals, for their value-for-money products, and I went to their website at least 4 times to pore over the colors and hues available, and I was soooooo tempted each time to jump right in to make an order!

Why didn’t I? Well, cos of the sheer VARIETY of items available! They have 43 different foundation shades, 51 different blushers, 72 eye shadow colors, 18 different concealers and more! How could I choose?

But well, I finally DID make an order! The awesome thing was that they allowed a free (yes, free!) sample makeup kit with every purchase, so that you can try out sample pots of foundations in different colors to find the right one! In fact, the sample kit allows for 3 different foundations, 1 concealer and 1 blush color! It was kind of hard to choose the right foundation color based on the write up, so this sample kit sure made things less “painful”!

Another awesome thing I loved about Everyday Minerals is that they allow sample sizes for almost ALL their products – eyeshadow, blushes, concealers… everything! Which is perfect for someone like me, who takes forever (and a day) to make some choices! And at US$2.50 for a small sample size, I think it is pretty worth it!

Here’s my stash:

I ordered the sample make up kit, an additional blusher, 5 different eye shadows and a make up base, a total of US$17.50. For 12 little pots!

And I love the colors! The eye shadow colors are really gorgeous! Oh man… I think I will probably make a few more orders from this site! I haven’t had the chance to try out the 3 sample foundation colors as yet, but I will do so soon!

Hihi,

I know you bought your everyday minerals make up some time ago. I'm just wondering if you remember the shipping charges and which service you used?

San said...

San-The Dainty Lion: Thanks for popping by. I used vpost for this spree. Can't recall the shipping charge cos I purchased something else online then and the base charge of S$18 was 'saved' due to this consolidation. :)

The Dainty Lion said...

Ooooh, right.
Thanks very much! Would you continue using everyday minerals? I'm thinking that if you are, perhaps I can join you in your orders and we can split the shipping cost =)

San said...

San-The Dainty Lion: Hahaha! Oh... U tempt me :P I love the products, still using now.

Hmm... OK. Why dun you go to the site and email me the products you want? Let's start a mini-EDM spree! Haha... I will go see which of my 'kakis' want in, then perhaps the shipping charge will be cheaper.

I will post a quick blog later tonight about this spree, hopefully can get 1-2 more people, then we all share the 'base' shipping charge and it will be much better. LOL...
