Go ahead! Ask your questions–now’s the time to get product recommendations, comparisons, or just find out what my favorite moisturizer is. I’ll be keeping an eye out on this post so I can answer questions quickly aka today! Feel free to chime in with your answer to someone else’s question, too!
OVERALL, Sheer Minerals is a collection that will appeal to many. It has the coveted mineralize skinfinishes in Petticoat and So Ceylon, plus permament and newcomer Soft & Gentle. Several mineralize duos are back in action, though those aren’t really up my alley, despite looking so pretty when swatched. Sheer Minerals/Mineralize consists of a lot of mineral face products (foundations, powders, etc.) that will be permament. Some products will switch out as they release new ones (like the eyeshadows). I picked up the mineralize skinfinishes (this is probably my third time owning Petticoat–maybe I’ll keep it this time!) and the sheersheen powders. I already have several mineralize blushes, so I could pass on those! See swatches here!
OVERALL, Adoring Carmine didn’t impress me like it originally did when I saw the promo photos for the launch. The packaging just isn’t as sleek and luxe as it looked in the images. Instead, the bright patent red portion of the bag looks too much for me. I also found that most of the lipsticks were just too sheer for my personal preference! I did pick up the Rose Lips set, mostly because of the pink gloss, which caught my eye.
OVERALL, Red She Said is a large collection with plenty of things to choose from. I think the highlight from the collection were the beauty powder blushes; talk about a powder that feels softer than silk. I know that beauty powder blushes had a great texture from before, but I don’t remember them feeling this soft. The dazzleglasses are back with four favorites and one new one (Miss Dynamite), and I know many of you were eager to get your hands on these! The mineralize eyeshadows are like mineralize eyeshadows… I didn’t notice a difference in texture or feel compared to the last set that came out. I skipped these for now, but we’ll see if I cave (like for Danger Zone–the one with the red in it). I purchased the two beauty powder blushes and that’s it!
