Purely You Minerals

I was offered the chance to try out some samples of Purely You Minerals and was more than happy to give them a try.  I think I will always love mineral makeup.  When I see a line with good ingredients, I love to see how the products work for me.  This line of mineral makeup is free of bismuth and nano size particles.

I got to try samples of foundation, finishing powder, bronzer, blush, eye colors and lip gloss.   I tested them out a couple times and had the same results each time.  I wanted to give them a few tries before deciding what I thought. 

I started with a light application of Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil, just a few drops patted gently on my face.  Then I applied 100% Pure Luminous Primer for my face and eyes.

I looked over the foundation shades and found 2 that should work and have to say Neutral Fair was a decent match for me, especially in winter now that I am practically hibernating. Neutral Fairly Medium was too dark for me. I applied the foundation with my Real Techniques brush and it worked really well. Next I applied Purely Bronze Bronzer with a Real Techniques brush.  It was a nice shade to do some contouring and warm up my skintone. I applied a layer of Light Skin Veil with a Hello Kitty synthetic brush.  Then I applied Purely Mauve Blush which I loved.  This blush looks fab on.  It really gave me a healthy rosy look.

After all of that, I applied a layer of Vanilla Latte from my lash line to just below my brow bone.  Then I applied Bare to my lids and crease area.  Vanilla Latte is a great base shade with a hint of sparkle.  It really helped cover up the redness on my veiny eyelids and looked pretty too.  Bare and I just didn't get along.  I kept trying to apply it but it didn't seem to want to stay on my skin.  This doesn't seem to be how all their eye shades work so it may just involve the formular for Bare.  Vanilla Latte on the other hand worked great for me. I tested them a couple times and the same exact thing happened so the conclusion was that Bare doesn't like me LOL

After all of that, I applied Blushing Lips with an Eco Tools lip brush.  This felt really nice and cool on my lips.  It looked light and pretty too.  When you look at my pics, don't judge the products for how tired I might look.  I was having an eye allergy reaction to Chinese food (most likely) most of last week so my eyes were still a bit puffy and red and I chose to go without mascara and eyeliner because of it.  This look is a very natural soft one and uses all of the products listed.
