Concrete Minerals

I ordered a blogger review pack from Concrete Minerals last month.
I  finally had a chance to try the pigments and
I am impressed so far!
There was a slight issue with the shipping. 
Concrete Minerals is located in the city right next to where
I live so it should have only taken a day or two after I got the shipping notice. 
After a few days I sent a message to Concrete Minerals which was answered within minutes.
It turns out the post office put my package in Concrete Minerals post office box by mistake.
After figuring out the issue, my package was shipped again and here the next day.
Everything was packaged well and arrived sealed and intact. 
 Included with my order was this awesome double sided card. 
One side has general instructions on how to use the loose pigment. 
This is a GREAT thing if you are new to mineral makeup.
 The other side has some general mineral makeup facts.

The blogger review pack cost $4.99 plus $1.99 shipping.
You get four 5-gram sample jars filled with 1/4 tsp. of the pigment color of your choice.
 I chose Swamped, Harlequin, Napalm and Vegas.
Each pigment comes with a very professional clean label.
These colors are gorgeous! 
They look fairly basic in the pot but are really stunning applied.
I am in LOVE with Swamped!! It is a awesome green!!

I liked these colors so much I wore them 2 days in a row!!

Inner to Outer - Vegas > Harlequin > Swamped

Inner to Outer - Vegas > Napalm

I used a bit of Napalm on my lips and topped it with with Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipglass by MAC

Overall I am pleased with my purchase from Concrete Minerals. 
Individual pigments are $5.99 each, the listing at Concrete Minerals states you get a
"10-gram container filled with product."
That is quite a bit of pigment compared to most indie mineral makeup companies.
They currently have over 33 different color pigments to choose from.
I already have a few in mind!
There are also a few package deals that offer a discount.
Become a fan on facebook and get 2 full size pigments for $7.99!

Will I buy from Concrete Minerals again?

I am very pleased with the quality of the 
pigments and I really like the colors they offer.

Have you ordered from Concrete Minerals? Which color is your favorite?
Help me build an order list!!!


  1. All the colors look gorgeous!!! I'm liking "prude,lovey dovey and kismet" all the green and blue toned ones...."lolita" looks cool too! But they all look great! Hard to choose just some lol

  2. I got the blogger sample pack and one color I got was "Black metal" it's a PERFECT black for a smokey eye or even as a liner. I am almost out of the sample I got, so I guess I am going to need to order more.

    I also think I need Swamped, Vegas, and Napalm

  3. Nice! Never looked at that company but I like all those colors!

  4. Hey Christina, I got your comment; sure, you can use any pics you'd like! Can't wait to see it! :D

  5. Yay I'm glad you had a positive experience! I really like Concrete minerals :)
