It's here! It finally arrived...

Yes, my free sample kit from Everyday Minerals has finally arrived, after one false alarm (the first shipment never arrived) and 1 1/2 months later. Better late than never, in my opinion!

At first I was worried that the makeup might have spilt because the idiot postman hurled the envelope into my garden, but thankfully it was all intact. This is how it looks like when it arrives.

Note that it comes with a color chart of their product so that if you're going to order another round, you can follow the chart instead of peering at the colors online.

The sample kit consists of three shades of foundation, one concealer and one blush. Since I'm quite fair, I followed Paris Beaverbanks' suggestion of picking the lighter colors when selecting foundation online. I ended up with the following colors:

~ Cool - Fair Medium foundation in Semi-Matte formula
~ Cool - Sandy Fair foundation in Semi-Matte formula
~ Cool - Multi-Tasking Neutral foundation in Semi-Matte formula
~ Multi-Tasking Concealer
~ Apple blush or face color

I love how cute it looks in the mini jars. Cute is always a plus point in my book, but I have to wonder how easy it's going to be dipping a brush in there to get the powder out.

I'll be reviewing the product itself next, but do bear in mind that I'm no expert on makeup nor mineral makeup, so I'd suggest you take my review with a pinch of salt, k?

Aww man! I got mine a couple of months ago, and the sample tubs were clear, plain cheap plastic. The lids did not even have the words "Everyday Minerals" printed on it, only a clear sticker on the back.

Yours definitely look a lot better.

tine: Hi, and welcome! Golly, that doesn't sound very nice looking nor professional of them. I guess they've improved since. I can't wait to try it out, but I'm no makeup expert like you or ParisB so I'm not sure how the result will fare! *grin*

If they are good, I wouldn't mind paying for a set of these too!

giddy tiger: I hope they're good! I can't wait to try it out, but I'm experiencing a minor break out right now.
