My everyday minerals blushes

Hey everyone!

I own four everyday minerals blushes:



1= snuggle
2= jingle bells
3=all smiles
4= nick nack

I think that I like Nick Nack and Snuggle the best, they are both really cute pink colors.
All smiles is a bit more orange/peachy, and jingle bells (a free sample with christmas) is a very shimmery pink/purple.

I really LOVE everyday minerals blushes, they have a lot of colors, shimmer, matte, sheen, etc. I think that there is a great color for everyone! :)

Coastal Scents haul!

Hey everyone!

I got my coastal scents haul. I already own some of their brushes, and I must say: they are great!

What did I got? (from left to right)
- Large paddle face brush ($9,95)
- White angled liner brush ($2,19)
- Oval camoflage brush ($3,49)
- Pink synthetic oval foundation brush ($3,99)

I am really happy with the stuff I got!

Large paddle face brush: This one really is LARGE. I think that that is really cool. You could use it for powder to set your foundation, or even bronzer. One thing that I didn't like about this brush: it isn't very soft, it is a bit harsh for your face. I was a bit dissapointed in that, because I expected much from this one. But overall it is a nice big fluffy powder brush!
White angled liner brush: This is such a great little brush for eyeliner if you want to make a thin line! I used to apply my fluidline with a angled brush, but it was a bit too big, and didn't really work for me. But now I have this one, applying my fluidline is a lot easyer! Great brush!
Oval camouflage brush: This is a great concealer brush. It is synthetic, and I really like how stiff it is. Also a very nice brush.
Pink synthetic oval foundation brush: I have not tried this one with my foundation yet, but it is also great to apply your concealer with. I like to use it with mineral concealer. It is a very soft and awesome brush.

I hop that this was helpful, xoxo Hannah

Everyday minerals samples swatches!

Hey everyone!

So.. I got my EDM sample kit a while ago, but just totally forgot to make pictures. So here they are anyway;

I ordered this kit because I wanted to pick the right foundation color so that I could order a BIG kit again. Unfortunately, none of the colors worked for me.
But it's ok, because I'm using liquid foundation now anyway.

I also ordered the Beige- sandy fair foundation, but I mixed that one with some other colors in a mixing jar to get the right color for me. That way, if I want to wair mineral foundation (if I want to give my skin some rest) I still can! :)

1= Buff- ivory (foundation)
2= Cool- fair medium (foundation)
3= Intensive fair (concealer)
4= Nick Nack (blush)

I do like the intensive fair concealer, it is great for under eye concealing! And the nick nack blush is gorgeous! It is a very nice pinky color, I think that it has a bit of shimmer in it, but I don't think that that will show on your face.

Everyday minerals is a great brand, and if you want to try it, I really recommend to order a sample kit on their website.

Review Revlon Colorstay Foundation

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that I found my new love.. My lovely Revlon Colorstay Foundation!
Before this one, I used only mineral powder (everyday minerals).. But I love this stuff so much better!!
I wanted a foundation that offers me a little bit more coverage, because I have some acne, and also some old acne scars.. And trust me: this foundation absolutely is what I was looking for!
I have it in the formula for combination/oily skin, this one offers SPF 6.

+ Pro's:
-Great coverage
-Not too expensive
-A lot of colors available
-Doesn't break me out

-SPF 6

- Con's:
-Dries really really fast, so you have to do one part of your face at a time
-The glass bottle doesn't have a pump, so sometimes there comes way to much out of the bottle for your face

I have it in shade 02: Buff and I think that I'm about NC20, but I'm not sure because I have never used MAC fix fluid.. I'm sorry.. :(

I also have the Revlon colorstay pressed powder (in light) and it works great with the foundation! It will help to set your make-up, and overall: I LOVE THIS DUO! I use them every single day! :)

So, if you were looking for a great liquid foundation: check out the revlon colorstay!
