Pure Luxe Mineral Eyeshadow Swatches & Other MMU Hauls

Since my first batch of foundation samples from Joppa and Fyrinnae didn’t work, I ordered again but with different finishes and shades so I can see which one is best, I also got a few baggy samples from Buff’d Cosmetics. I also wanted to try Fyrinnae’s Oil Control Powder and Rice Powder Primer so I will see how those work out and of course report my findings to you ladies!

The Fyrinnae foundation, “Sunstone” Super Power Foundation is great for those who need a lot of coverage, however I found it to be just a tad bit too cakey for me, as I don’t need too much coverage, so I ordered samples of the same shade and in “Sheen” and “Matte” Finishes to compare (haven’t done it yet) as well as their other shade “Ametrine” just in case it’s off a bit.

I REALLY like Joppa Minerals, the coverage and lasting power is AMAZING!!!! (For me anyway), and I am just loving the airbrushed look it gives (sorry I haven’t taken any pics, i’ve been bumming it M-F), but i’ll do a fotd using their foundation and maybe you can see what im talking about…thanks Nikki and Mhean for suggesting to try Medium #3, Erica (best friend) said she didn’t even notice I was wearing foundation! LOL, so I guess it was a perfect match to my skin, and I thought so too. So that just might be my perfect shade.

Frankly, I don’t have time to mix my own foundation as much as I used to, so as much as I have enjoyed Silk Naturals because it allowed me to customize my shade as well as give me exceptional coverage, I just want something now that’s already ready to go.

I wanna try the other samples I got just in case, and then once I am done and made a decision, I can go ahead and order a full-size of it!

Here are all of the Pure Luxe Eyeshadows I have and swatches! These were APPLIED DRY, NO BASE. Enjoy! (they are in name, open jars, and swatch form), sorry I spelled “Rococo” wrong! I was too lazy to double check! LOL.

Product Review- Pure Luxe Cleansing Oil & Moisture Spritzer

Product: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 4 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

Sorry for the delayed post, I have a huge headache that won’t go away!

What it does:
The Pure Luxe Cleansing Oil is an alternative to the Oil Cleansing Method in which you wash your face with oil to remove the dirt but also keeping the necessary oils in your skin. Often times when I wash my face with soap it makes my face TOO dry and I get that “tight” feeling, but the oil cleansing method cancels the dryness. The Moisturizing Spray is just a simple, easy spray you spritz on your face and let it just absorb into your skin. When you over-clean your face, you take out the skin’s natural oils that you need, therefore allowing more bacteria to harbor in your pores causing a pimple. Using the oil cleansing method (in which you clean your face obviously with oil), you remove the dirt/makeup AND moisturizing your skin.

What I like about it:
The Oil and the moisturizing spray smells nice, like a lemony scent, but can remind some people of Lemon Lysol but nothing extreme. The oil feels great on my skin, and paired with a hot washcloth on my face, I almost feel like I am in a day spa getting a facial! It really made my skin soft and I love how I wasn’t drying my skin preventing any acne or pimples. The moisturizing spray is great for traveling too, it comes in a pump and you just spray and go. Just spray it evenly all over your face and just let it absorb into your skin, no rubbing required.

What I didn’t like about it: I think because I got a sample of the oil, it came in a vile that did not allow me to control the amount of oil I needed and on top of that trying to screw the lid back on with one hand! If there was an easier way to dispense the oil (spray form or something of the sort) then it would be a lot easier for me anyway.

I would definitely buy it again and make it an addition to my skin regimen which consists of a mix of Philosophy’s Purity Cleanser and Pure Luxe’s Calamine Soap Bar. If you are interested, check it out here:
