I just heard that Dreamworld Minerals is now closed, although Ellie says she still hopes to reopen soon. Such sad news for me because I was only able to try my DW samples recently and I thought they were awesome! I ordered a bunch of samples and they were promptly shipped out but they got delayed in transit and for some reason took 6 weeks to arrive.
Anyway, today I got out the samples and chose a foundation shade to try on. I sprayed my Garden of Wisdom hydrating mist on my kabuki just before applying the minerals on my face and that felt SO great, creamy, and I felt like that made my make-up stay on longer. I was happy that the DW foundie did not make me itch (unlike the first 2 mmu brands I tried- bare escentuals and joppa), gave pretty good coverage, and didn't dry out my skin.
The creme topping is love. It definitely brightened my face and goes on smooth and light. I so loved the slight color and glow it gave me. And this finishing powder miraculously did not dry my skin up either. I was set on ordering my first FS mmu, 'cause this seemed like my first successful try at mmu, but oh! The site is now closed for business. I hope it's not for too long.

Still all about foundation and working towards putting on eye makeup :)
I initially found Hebe too light for my skin tone but after a few hours it seemed to darken a bit, which made it a better match for me. Is that how it usually is with mmu?
Hours later, with my baby girl here who's looking grumpy. She was starting to get bored because we got stuck in traffic. I was, too, so I just took photos of us two.
How did your Friday go? My weekend started early and I'm glad. Enjoy yours! :)
