Something I love

Sorry I haven't updated recently, I've had two shows right on top of one another, and have been in Houston visiting family in the midst of it all. If you're in the Houston area come down to Comicpalooza and say hello to me! I'll be in my Stickerella booth, selling lots of vinyl decals.

Since I have nothing new to show you guys right this moment, I thought I'd take a moment to share something I've found that I absolutely love. I was enamored with the idea of mineral makeup when I first heard about it, listening to some late night infomercial. I ordered some base powder from an organic company that I order house cleaners from, but when I got it I really didn't care for the smell, or the color. With only 4 colors to choose from, and a whopping $40 price tag, I wasn't happy at all. Luckily, I was able to return this to the company, and I was out looking once again. I decided to check out a few Etsy shops. I sampled powder from several sellers, then came across The All Natural Face There were dozens of colors to choose from, and I found the absolute perfect match for my skin tone.

I replaced 90% of my makeup (only kept my mascara, because there wasn't anything to replace it with). I got the base, the "glow" which makes a beautiful natural looking blush, the mineral veil, patina concealer, and four eyeshadows.

I get red patches on my face, especially around my nose. The patina concealer completely smooths these out, and gives me a clear canvas to apply the base to. The finished look is very natural. When I go out, I don't look like I'm painted with gobs of makeup. One of the first nights I wore it out, I had on the whole shebang except for eyeshadow. I was at the coffee shop painting, and one of my friends stopped by and commented on how beautiful my skin looked :) I was hooked right then. It feels really smooth and silky on, and my skin has really started to clear up. This is a big deal to me, because I'd break out every time I put my old makeup on.

I don't promote just anyone, and I'm getting no benefit from this review. I just wanted to share a great product with others. She offers very affordable samples as well, so you can try all of her products before you put down the big bucks.
