Free Mineral Makeup

Okay... I can contest for this.... All you pay for is shipping... which is like 3 or 4 bucks...

Everyday Minerals gives you the chance to sample their makeup... it's better qualitly than drugstore makeup, but I can't honestly tell you whether it's better than Bare Escentuals or not... 

You get mini pots of 3 foundations (your choice of colors and formulas), 1 blush, and 1 concealer.... Edit: it says Blushes/Face Colors... so you might be able to choose eyeshadow or something here if you like..... but don't hold me to that...

You can find it at everydayminerals.com and go to makeup>custom kits> scroll down to free sample makeup kit or click THIS LINK and scroll down to the free sample makeup kit.

From there click Add To Cart, then you go to the different makeups (Hovering over the word MAKEUP at the top will give you the links to foundation, blush, concealer, etc)... you'll have on the right hand side the counter of what you've got (like 0/3 foundation, 0/1 blush.. etc)  When you find the formula/color of whatever you want, drag and drop to that right hand side.... 

I can vouch... I've been using this daily for 2-3 weeks (although I don't use a ton) and the pots are still half full at least...  The pots are about the size of a quarter around and about 3/4 inch deep (including lid)... they're sifter pots....

Notes from what I've found:

There are 4 formula foundations... before you drag and drop, click the color you want, and then scroll up to the top and select the formula... then drag and drop... The formulas are: Original Glo (gives you a dewy look), Semi Matte (a light 'glow')... Intensive (probably a fuller coverage)... and Matte (I'm guessing there's no glow with this)

I got 2 different formulas for the color foundation I thought would be perfect for me..... the Original Glo and the Semi Matte...... I prefer the semi matte... it's not too matte, but after a few hours and it sorta melts into your skin, you get a bit more of a 'glow'.... I think the original glo looks nice RIGHT after I'm done putting it on, but after a few hours, my face just kinda looks far too shiny for my taste.... If you're not looking for any shine, go for a different formula... I would say coverage is up to you... sheer to full coverage depending on how much you choose to use....

Blush.... I got a light blush... it looked really light when I picked the color, and even lighter in person... don't under-estimate the color... it's not super intense, but it showed up a lot better than I expected... so don't think you need a super dark color... and don't judge it till you've tried it lol

Concealers you have the choice between natural colors, blue, green, and yellow colors too... the one I got was Intensive Fair... it's matte... a bit more coverage than my foundations... works well under or over the foundation......

Last note... maybe the most important... you don't get brushes for this... I found a larger concealer brush works best for concealer and I use a kabuki brush that I already had from other mineral makeups I've tried that I use for the blush and foundation....... I recommend investing in these two brushes if you don't have them already... it doesn't matter where you get them or how expensive they are... it's all about application.

 

Anyway, I love it so far.... and it's also pretty cheap compared to some mineral makeup... I'm still on my quest to find the perfect makeup, so I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with it... it gets a thumbs up from me... thought I'd share the mention of free makeup............

Thanks for the tip!  I use Bare Essentials now but have been wanting to compare with different products.  Like you, I am on the hunt for the best makeup for my skin.
