I’m a huge fan of Mineral Makeup! I’m not a fan of the price tag however. Some of the famous Mineral Makeup Companies are charging an arm and a leg for their cosmetics! It’s crazy. After purchasing a well known brand I noticed that my face started to itch like mad. After a trip to my dermatologist I was told I was allergic to bismuth, an ingredient in the minerals that made my face look a bit shiny, which to be honest, isn’t a very pretty look. All that money down the drain!
Southern Magnolia Minerals offers a unique, affordable and very decadent alternative to the national cosmetic mineral makeup brands and infomercials. Their mineral makeup is 100% pure bare all-natural minerals designed to enhances your natural beauty. They have a huge variety of products to choose from which are free of preservatives, chemicals, dyes, oils, perfumes and bismuth. Southern Magnolia Minerals (SMM) makeup goes on easily, looks beautiful and stays on until I take it off at the end of a very long day!
I was Blessed to receive a few Southern Magnolia Minerals products for review. Each product is wonderful and the prices are super affordable!
Original Full Coverage Mineral Foundation in Light ~ This exclusive blend of loose mineral bare foundation is fabulous! I have dry skin and some mineral foundations I’ve used in the past just didn’t blend well on my skin. Original Full Coverage Mineral Foundation feels light, weightless in fact. It covers all my flaws and imperfections but lets my skin shine through because the coverage is adjustable and build-able.
Unlike liquid makeup, which I don’t like there’s no heavy, greasy residue and no ugly line at my jaw where my foundation stops! I even use Original Full Coverage Mineral Foundation to cover my dark circles. I just apply it over my eye cream and it covers beautifully! It doesn’t cake or crease.
- Natural UVA/UVB Sun Protection of 15+
- Great for all types of skin, from dry and aging skin to sensitive to acne prone.
- Won’t clog pore. Actually heals as it conceals.
- Waterproof and sweatproof
- Cruelty-free. Southern Magnolia Minerals are never tested on animals
Application is easy! I use a kabuki brush, which I swirl into the minerals, tap off the extra then apply over my entire face. If I want extra coverage I go over my face again. Original Full Coverage Mineral Foundation is available in sample bag, starter jar, full size jar, 8g refill bag and 1 oz. bag.
Mineral Blush Loose Powder – Sugar Plum ~ This color looks dark in the jar but because the Mineral Blush Loose Powder is build-able it’s actually very subtle. Mineral Blush Loose Powder adds a pretty radiance to my skin! It looks very natural! I only need to apply a small amount of this gorgeous color to achieve a beautiful, healthy glow. Sugar Plum is a purplish, plum with a touch of shimmer. The color is gorgeous! Like all Southern Magnolia Minerals Products, it contain no bismuth, talc, perfumes, gluten, chemicals or parabens!
Mineral Matte Finish Eye Shadow Color – Creme Brulee ~ I have very sensitive eye lids and cannot wear most eye shadows, that includes minerals eye shadows. They irritate the skin on my eye lids so badly that after only an hour or so my eye lids become red, excoriated then crack and bleed. So I’m always very cautious when I try a new eye shadow. There are certain colors I know I must avoid and glitter is almost always an irritant.
Mineral Matte Finish Eye Shadow is very gentle on my eyes! Creme Brulee is a neutral color and makes a great eye shadow base! It’s not loaded with colorants which is one of the reasons I love it! I use it to lighten some of my “too dark” eye shadows. It can be used alone or as shadow highlight color. Each generous 2.8 oz jar includes enough minerals to last an entire year and that’s when used daily! So you can see how affordable and economical Southern Magnolia Minerals are.
Southern Magnolia Minerals’ Eye shadows may be used as Eye Shadow, Eyebrow Shader, Liquid Liner, Body Shimmer and some as nail polish, lip tint and blush! Price ~ $9.95
Indigo Mineral EyeShadow Eye Liner Sample ~ 1/8 tsp. 2+ applications. This sample will probably last me a month or more! Indigo is a gorgeous dark blue shade that can be used as a shadow or liner. I dip my liner brush into water then into my Indigo Minerals then sweep my brush across my upper and lower lash line. I love it as a liner! Price – $3
Southern Magnolia Minerals offers free U.S. shipping! Their customer service is impeccable, their prices are extremely affordable and their cosmetics are terrific!
