The Get Acquainted kit at $3.50 consists of baggie samples of 1 finishing powder, 1 blush, and 3 mineral foundations. I chose:
Soft Focus Finishing powder in Tan, and Cherry Blossom blush
Foundations in Jocelyn (youthful glow), Soon (cover me), and Jin (youthful glow)
3 more freebie foundations were included: Kaylee, Mia, and Maria. All 6 shades are from the yellow family. I haven't tried them yet but judging from the color in the bags, Jin, Kaylee, and Mia seem to be my closest colors.
I wanted to use the Liquid Minerals first:
Medium Golden and Tanned Warm ($4 per 5g jar)
From the EG website-
"Liquid Minerals"Our Premium liquid Mineral foundation. Its base formula also contains PRIMROSE oil, which has proven beneficial, soothing skin conditions like Eczema and Dermatitis. This natural foundation is mineral based and provides medium coverage with a matte finish. Liquid Minerals is ideal for those who prefer using a liquid foundation. It applies effortlessly and provides coverage that lasts well into the night. This is the liquid foundation for women who celebrate their beauty naturally.
Anyway, here's me:
Please excuse my face (I made the picture small 'cause I am soooo shy). Heehee. My skin is still pretty bad and very dry that's why I wanted to try the liquid minerals.
I just applied it using my fingers but I'm not sure I did it right. Next time I think I'll use a sponge or foundation brush for a more even application. It feels light on my face and it turns into a powdery finish once it's dried. No irritation or itchiness. I like it but Medium Golden is a tad bit light for me. And Tanned Warm, I don't know why I chose that shade- it's way too dark on me.
In the photo I am wearing Medium Golden mixed with a bit of Tanned Warm...still not sure it's the right shade for me though. I applied a light sheen of the Tan finishing powder, and Cherry Blossom blush (I like this one a lot). Also some Aromaleigh lipstick in Crush but it seems to have worn off.
Staying power seemed okay but today was a cool day. I only went out for a quick errand then came home and gave my daughter a bath but I didn't sweat much. It's be better to test this during a typically hot day in Manila.
I'm pretty excited to try the mineral foundies, wish I'd discovered EG before their Buy One Get One sale. Well. Will get more of their blushes and glows next time!
