KT Naturals VS. Everyday Minerals

I actually like KT Naturals over Everyday Minerals [only comparing these 2, because I know there are some that might be better than KT Naturals].

I have been using KT Naturals Mineral Foundation in “Med. Warm Beige” and I notice a big difference between the two, KT Naturals really gives me the airbrushed look and lasts a lot longer than Everyday Minerals. Everytime I applied Everyday Minerals, it started to streak a little bit in the middle of the day, giving me a cakey look and would disperse unevenly on my face, even though I still do like the coverage it gives.

But with KT Naturals, I get the airbrushed coverage I like, looks absolutely flawless on my face AND the best part is that I was able to find MY shade! With Everyday Minerals I had trouble finding the right shade and didn’t want to have to mix foundations together. And their medium warm beige states: “This is for average shade skin with yellow or olive undertones. This shade is ideal for Hispanics, Mediterraneans, or Asians.” So try it out!

They even have a FREE 4-piece sampler kit (just pay for shipping!)

L’Oreal HIP Pigments Review

I’ve always loved MAC Pigments, how you can mix them and all the shades they come in; however I hate the outrageous price. I know that they give you a lot, but seriously you don’t even need that much. My NYX loose eyeshadows are super tiny and those of you that have one know what I mean, yet I still have yet to come close to finishing a bottle!


I recently bought L’Oreal’s HIP Pigment in “Restless” and let me tell you, I am in love. I am convinced that a good majority of the high end cosmetics are very well imitated by their competitor- the drugstore brands.

I was VERY impressed with these pigments because the color is shimmery and yet you can control the intensity of it, sheer or heavily pigmented. The best part was that it was only $10 at Target AND came with its own brush! The color I bought is a nice creamy, gold, almost like a pigmented version of MAC’s eyeshadow in VEX, or Flirt’s Limelight.

I am DEFINITELY going to buy more colors of this stuff because its awesome. I also bought Wet N’ Wild’s version of “pigments” in “White Lotus”, and it’s a white pigment with flecks of glitter, it’s super pretty!

Here is the Wet N’ Wild in “White Lotus”:

Swatch of it on my hand, pretty eh?

I also bought a double ended duo brush that has a round tip flat head on one end and an angled brush on the other, I don’t need anymore brushes, but this one is my “travel brush”:
