I've wanted to try mineral makeup for a long time. When it comes to makeup, I always wear at least a little but, don't give much thought to what I wear. I've never really been a believer that different makeup is better. Well, after trying the makeup from Mineral Basics, I'm a total believer.

Mineral Basics began with one woman looking for the perfect mineral makeup that would be natural and for people with any skin type. Her makeup line has extended into other wonderful skin care products as well. I was really impressed with the large selection of makeup and products I found on the Mineral Basics website. There are just so many different products and colors to choose from. Luckily, Mineral Basics sent me an amazing sample pack, complete with 15 different samples of their fantastic mineral makeup.

My faves? Without a doubt, my number one favorite product from Mineral Basics is their Foundation. I actually used this as a concealer and was blown away at the effects. My skin looked flawless. Dark circles under my eyes were gone. Imperfections: gone. I love this foundation and will be purchasing some in the very near future. Speaking of my purchase, let me say that the prices are very affordable.

Some of my other favorites are the Charcoal Multi-Use Satin Color that I used to smokify my eyeliner, the Contour Multi-Use Matte Color that was perfect for a little accentuating of my eyes, the Dusk Multi-Use Color that looks great as a brow highlighter, and the Pink-to-Gold Multi-Use Shimmer Color that is just super fun anywhere you put it. One of the things I love is how versatile so many of these colors are.

I also tried the Angel Kisses Finishing Powder and the finish it created was smooth and flawless. The first night that I actually wore a complete face of Mineral Basics makeup, I was at an outdoor concert for several hours. Now, an outdoor concert at night in south Texas would normally mean a couple of things; frizzy hair, greasy face and runny makeup. While I can't comment on the state of my hair, I will say that when we got in the car at the end of the night I was absolutely blown away at how great my makeup still looked. I seriously didn't touch up the entire time we were there and every time I looked in the mirror, I couldn't believe that I didn't need to touch it up. That right there, makes me a huge fan of Mineral Basics.

I definitely recommend the makeup from Mineral Basics. I love that it's a small business and that the woman behind it all is dedicated to bringing these fabulous products to women all over the world at such fantastic prices. If you've never tried mineral makeup, Mineral Basics should be your first stop. If you currently use mineral makeup, give Mineral Basics a try! You won't be disappointed.
