Moi Minerals Cosmetics Review, Swatchfest, EOTD and Giveaway!

The lovely Holly at Moi Minerals recently put together an awesome
blogger/review package for me.
The cost for this package was $10
First off, the packaging is incredible.
Everything was wrapped and bagged beautifully.
You can tell a lot of time and effort went into it.

 Let's start with what was in this little box.
I have not used these yet because I am not familiar with how to use
this type of product. I have always used a liquid or mousse foundation and 
concealer. Any tips?
Inside the adorable pillow box was a BUNCH of samples!
 Labeling is fantastic with ingredients clearly listed!
 Inside the organza bag was 4 pots of pigment.
 Maria       Spank Me
Pink Pearls     Panic  
 Great packaging and labeling again!
 Sifter seals for the win!!
 Samples all potted up.

 All of the colors had great texture and went on easily.
Goldenrod, Maria, Buffy and Onya were the ones that caught my eye out of the bunch.
Booo... I dropped the whole pot of limelight on my lap. R.I.P

Color descriptions taken from the product listing.
Goldenrod - Bright shimmery golden yellow
Maria - Metallic yellow/green
Onya - Light shimmer peach
Buffy -deep dark turquoise green with just enough shimmer

Out of this bunch I really liked Pink Pearls, Angel Eyes,Hi Five,Spank Me 
and Bell Flower.

Color descriptions taken from the product listing.
Bell Flower -Blue that has color shifters
Spank Me - Sparkly Dark Blue
Angel Eyes - Soft pink
Pink Pearls - Soft Shimmery Pink

Overall I like all these colors. They applied well and blended easily even
though they are quite shimmery.
Pricing is $5 for a 5 gram jar or $10 for a 10 gram jar.
I found quite a few different sample packs.
You can get a free sample here.

In the other organza bag was 3 Lip Love Potions.
Description taken from product listing.
These Lip Potions I have made from all natural oils, offering a light weight smooth gloss that's not sticky
 Once again, the ingredients clearly listed.
 This lip potion is very creamy and soft which I like.
Lip Potions come in a 3 gram jar and cost $3.99


#1 was a bit too light for me but is lovely for adding a white shimmer
on top of other colors.

I really liked #2

#10 was my favorite as I am partial to oranges with golden tones lately.

Overall thoughts?
I really like this company.
The products are very well made and  wonderful to use.
The packaging is SUPERB.
Pricing is average.
Website and the Etsy shop are both easy to navigate.
Moi Minerals carries a full line of cosmetics and supplies including
eye pigments, mineral foundations, blushes, lip products,
brushes and more.
The only down side to this company is that they are located in
Canada so shipping to the states makes for a bit longer wait.
If you are a patient person than this will not be an issue <3
