Mineral Basics Review



Again, You all know how much I love mineral makeup. Especially eye shadows. So I was so excited when I got the chance to review for Mineral Basics 
They sent me 15 samples to try out and I LOVE them all!!
Some of these are finishing powders which are nice for over your foundation or even as a primer for the eyeshadow. It looks like I have a lot of pinks in there, and I do, but I like more natural eye shadows and colors. There are a couple greens in there and a purple and bronze, but the rest are pretty much pink-ish.

They have Mineral Foundation, Primer Powders, Blemish Skincare and even Handcrafted soap. They have so many products and a lot of choices to make! It's hard too!!

Beginnings:
Mineral Basics began in 2004 as a means to provide all natural cosmetics to people with all skin types and tones across the globe. I personally had dealt with self-esteem-deflating skin issues for most of my life: terrible acne, inflamed skin, oiliness AND dryness, flaky skin, etc. I happily discovered mineral makeup and began manufacturing my own brand. I simply could not find the exact formula I wanted in a foundation, so I had to make my own.
From our beginnings on eBay, we then quickly had our retail site built and expanded into wholesale sales soon thereafter. I love the thought that others are being helped like me… that we no longer have to suffer with awful skin. We can feel lovely and confident, and know that with our skin looking fabulous, we have one less thing to worry about in life. I also enjoy helping others make a living through our wholesale program.
Today:
I fill my days with answering emails, updating products on the website, redesigning the site occasionally, processing orders, creating new products, etc. My favorite thing of all is to create new products. I absolutely love creating.
Each day we make it our mission to provide high-quality, all-natural, unique cosmetics and related items in a timely, friendly manner to uplift and bring joy and confidence to our customers.
Future:
The joy and fulfillment of uplifting others is an on-going goal and will surely carry into the future. We are excited you’ve decided to try our products and I pray they give you as much self-esteem and pure delight as they have me and others who currently enjoy our line. I pray each day you receive compliments on your beautiful skin as you wear our mineral makeup and all-natural skin care.

I really like this company and I'm really liking the shadows and powders. 

Price: The samples are just $1.75 each and there's so much in there, they will last a while. The full size shadows are $8.50, but there's quite a bit in there I'm sure!

Overall: ***** With such a great selection and such great products it's a no brainer!


 

*Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*
