Moi Minerals Haul, Swatches, Tutorial and Giveaway!


             This post is going to be long and picture heavy!  As you know I am a "model" for Moi Minerals. I have gotten a few packages lately and I wanted to share the glittery goodness with you all! Stay tuned at the end of the post for a giveaway.

           New to Moi Minerals are ......
        These are not your average Mineral Eye Shadows, They are actually created completely different , one method is a heat treat method, each shadow can take anywhere from 8-48 hours to create from start to finish,the whole process is very time consuming.The out come of these is so worth the time involved, some shades are actually a multi~tone(1-meaning the out side appearance is one shade but when applied its actually a completely different color,2-some may have a duo-chrome type effect) They can be applied as is,with primer,damp brush, this is for you to decide what works for you and the finish you are trying to achieve. High Beam shadows come in two varieties.
~  HighBeam Sparklers(Super Glittery Shimmer Eye Shadows),

~HighBeam Intense Blends(Super pigmented Intense Eye Shadows)
Pricing
 $2.50 1/8 tsp. sample 
$6.00 5 gram jar
$10.00 10 gram  pro size jar
High Beam Shadows come on over 54 colors!!!

I received Geranium, Party Rocket
 ( Picture taken with flash)

                   These  shadows are NEAT!! They swatched so smooth and pigmented. I was very impressed but also wondered how they would do on the eye. The really glittery ones were a bit hard to pick up with the brush but I managed to get the hang of it pretty quick. These shadows remind me of MAC crushed metallic pigments in texture.

Blush!!!
  Pricing
$7.95 for a 10 gram jar
$12.95 for a 20 gram jar
        I got four blush samples and I quickly potted them into my own jars. I am in LOVE with Rosewood!! All of the blushes have nice formulas. They go on pretty sheer but are buildable to a more intense color and they blend easily into the skin without being chalky.

         Here is a full face look I did using Moi Minerals. My eyes are Fortune Cookie, Geranium, Havannah, and Red River. My cheeks are Rosewood blush and my lips are Love Song (which will be available early March)

Undercover Lover

           Moi Minerals also launched a FABULOUS Halloween collection this year and I am told it will be available year round!!


            Snap is the most fabulous color!! I want to wear it everyday!! These colors are the standard formula pigments and have all of the qualities of a great pigment. Opaqueness and blended easily, not too much fall out and a very smooth formula.



Pricing for standard mineral pigments are 
$1.75 for 1/8 tsp sample
$5.00 for a 5 gram jar
$10 for a 10 gram jar



           For this look I used Snap, Pink Stilletos and Pluto.
