Erth Minerals Makeup review and giveaway



I'm so excited to tell y'all about a new Vegan makeup company I discovered Erth Minerals! I received a full face of make up to review for y'all. I can't wait to share it with you.  I will tell you about the products in the order I applied them.  Of course as with all makeup I applied to a clean moisturized face. For this review I did not use my traditional primer.

The first thing I want to talk about is the bronzer. I used the bronzer, in the form of a medium grain mineral powder, for contouring. The color is very pretty it is not too dark just enough to give color. I applied with a brush and it was the perfect amount. I don't know how to explain it but the powder feels almost silky, It felt great when I applied it to my face and it blended beautifully.

The next thing I applied (after concealer) is the foundation. Now I've told y'all before I' m not a huge fan of  powder foundation and I will stick to that conviction. That being said I was taught a trick --  Take a little of your favorite moisturizer and mix in the powder foundation. WOW this trick works perfectly. It made a perfect consistency for foundation and it was very easy to apply. It also puts you in complete control the more moisturizer you add the lighter the coverage. The mixture blended perfectly and spread evenly. I had the perfect amount of light weight coverage. It was not cakey nor did it flake or peal. The coverage lasted all day I was without letting the shine on my forehead come through. I was super impressed.

So done with the foundation what would you apply next?  I did my eyeshadow but first I applied the Shadowlast eye primer. I was slightly thrown off because is white and looks a little like glue but it does not feel like glue so don't be afraid. It smooths evenly and disappears in seconds so you have no white residue on your eyelids.  I used the primer under another brand eyeshadow and I was very happy to see LONG after  a 10 hour work day my eyeshadow was still there. Super impressive.

The send me FIVE eye shadows that's right five beautiful colors to choose from. Now of course I had a hard time deciding which one to try first but the Purple won, not surprising right? This too is a mineral fine/medium grain powder that has a silky feel to it. The color is a deep purple with a matte shade which I love. I applied it to my lid and topped it with Truffle an almost translucent shimmer. They went on perfectly with a brush and a little goes a very long way.  Combined with the primer this shadow also lasted all day. The other shades are just as pretty Twilight which is a a blue shimmer. Olives which is a green semi-shimmer,and Silt a peachy shimmer. I do really want to point out the shimmer is NOT extremely shiny, just enough not to be matte.


Purple
Truffle

Olives 
Twilight 
Silt
The eyeliner pencil is called Blue Yonder I'm sure no explanation needed but it is a pretty shade of navy blue.  The pencil is soft enough to go on smooth without breaks without falling apart or smashing. I prefer gel or liquid liner but it this one is easy to control so you can draw the size line you desire.

Now follow with blush the color I got was Primrose a beautiful mauve. The blush is no different from the other powders it is a medium grain and feels very silky.  The blush is not a deep shade but a it only takes a little to give the perfect "glow" to your cheeks. It blends perfectly and although powder has very little fall out.




Last be certainly not least a lip gloss in Dahlia a pretty neutral color that goes on with a beautiful shine. The lip gloss feels amazingly silky and has staying power. It is not sticky or goey so it wears easily without irritation.


I am very impressed with Erth Minerals and would purchase makeup from them once these run out. I have to say I was most surprised by the foundation because I truly expected not to like it.  Another thing I want to share is a I love the foundation, bronzer, and blush containers they are have a little slide "door" with holes you shake out what you want and close it. I LOVE this because it prevents mess, I can't tell you how many times when using powder I have dumped it everywhere.

Erth Minerals is kind enough to offer y'all 15% off of any online purchase just use code Amber15 at check out. They have tons of colors and sample kits to help you find your perfect shade.
