I'm trying out the whole mineral makeup thing. As a natural born sceptic, it's so hard to go with that hype.. but hey, here I am. After trying some samples from About Face/The She Space, I got full sizes of a blush, two eyeshadows and "Cashmere Stockings" finishing powder. The verdict: some are great, some not so much.
The finishing powder thing is not for me. It does nothing that I can see, and adds another complicated and unnecessary step to my routine.
Eyeshadows seem good quality, but I'm having trouble with the texture in practice. It seems to fall off in an instant. Some shades are better at sticking around than others, though, and the range of colour selection is am-ah-zing. Also, the owner is an absolute doll, and she threw in a free full sized eyedshadow for me. Generous!
The blush is my favourite; subtle, perfect for my colouring, sticks around, buildable - love.
I'm not a fan of the packaging, though. No sifter top, so do not drop. Also, shipping (granted, international) took almost two months. Now that's not the company's fault, obviously, but it does mean I'll think twice about ordering regularly from them.
I'd like to explore more of their line, but I'm not sure if I have the patience what with the slow shipping. Pity, as they might have some real nice stuff at a good price.
