Everyday Minerals Review & Give-a-way...

LIVE. EVERYDAY. NATURALLY

You guys know I love makeup and trying new kinds, so when Everyday Minerals sent me some of their products for review I couldn't wait to try them out!

(I am wearing both eye shadows here and a little of the blush with the bronzer all over my face!)

Before I tell you about what I tried let me tell you more about the Everyday Minerals Company!

Born with an organic spirit, Carina Menzies was driven to help woman feel beautiful by using products that only contain the finest essential ingredients, that are all-natural and that don't cost a fortune! Carina's goal is to empower every woman's inner beauty to shine by focusing on what woman love most about makeup: effortless application, long lasting qualities, versatile shades, and most importantly, fun!

Everyday Minerals is entirely family owned and operated, with Carina being the founder of the company, creator of new products, and a pioneer in the green makeup revolution. Based in Austin, TX- Everyday Minerals is an Organic, Vegan and Eco-friendly company that specializes in healthy, affordable, and sustainable products with a premium quality and an innovative collection of over 400 vibrant colors and shades that will flatter virtually every skin tone!


Everyday Minerals sent me 4 products to try out.

They sent me 1 of their blushes from their Cheeks collection. Their Cheeks products are versatile, pure and playful, silky-smooth with endless variety - must love color! 3 styles for every complexion: Matte - non-sparkle sensations / Shimmer - constellations of color / Sheen - satin iridescence.


The Cheeks product I tried is called "Salon Fun" which is a bright, cheery true pink with hints of raspberry. Not only do I love the name of this but the color is so fun on! It's such a pretty color and I love how affordable it is. You can purchase the Salon Fun -Sample for $2.50 or the full sized Salon Fun -Big is only $8!


I also love that their Cheek containers have a sliding lid so you can close it before putting the lid on so that all of the color doesn't spill out before your next use!


The 2nd product is from their Face collection. They sent me their "Soft Bronzer"- Soft Bronzer is a unique bronzing product as its translucent, which allows you to apply it to your entire face for a healthy glow. It’s also used as a contour product for lighter skin. I think it is very pretty when lightly dusted all over my face once I've applied all of my makeup! It really does give me a healthy glow and it's perfect for summer! It is also very affordable which I love at only $2.50 for the sample size and $8 for the Big!


The last 2 products are from their Eyes collection -Free your creativity! Achieve stunning looks with your shimmer, matte, or pearl shades. Fun, luxurious, beautiful, with endless colors to match every mood, every whim, everyday, naturally.

The 1st color sent for review is their "Smokey Pink" eyeshadow which is a pretty, soft, pearlescent pink with lavender undertones. I am really loving this color for summer. It is very shimmery and a very pretty color to give you a summery smokey eye that is just right and not to harsh! I also love that their eye shadows are so affordable at only $2.50 for the sample and $6 for the Mini!

The last color I was sent is their "Hot Chocolate" which is a pearlescent light brown/tan. This color is perfect for an all over shimmer on those days when you don't want anything too dramatic or it's also perfect as a pretty shimmery base before applying darker colors like the Smokey Pink. I have used these 2 together and they give me a really fun look!

Overall I am very happy with my experience using Everyday Minerals. The colors are awesome, the names are so fun, and the price is excellent!


I love that Everyday Minerals sells so many different products, like concealer, base, blush, eye shadows, bronzer, pressed powder, lipstick, lip balm, brushes and even very cute carrying cases from their new Organic Denim collection!

I also love that they sell kits like this Utopia Blooms Collection shown above! Can you believe you get all of those products shown for only $29.00 right now! It had been $74.50! Hurry get yours while it lasts!
