Everyday Minerals Haul

I actually got this a week (I think?) ago, but I'm just posting about it now. I looove the wipes! They're awesome! Thank you Trinh for recommending these! I'll do a review on them soon! But I LOVE them!

The foundation shades are different, but they all seem to go on the same. I don't know if it's because they go on sheer or because the colors are just similar... I got foundation shades from different undertone groups though... They're all in the "Original Glo" finish and it has pretty good coverage. It doesn't completely cover up my red cheeks, but does hide them so you can't really see how red they naturally are. I've also heard of people breaking out when they switch from their mineral foundation (from a diff company) to Everyday Minerals, but this hasn't broken me out in at all in any way.

This is what I got in their free sample kit:
Medium beige foundation (Warm undertone)
Winged butter foundation (Golden undertone)
Medium beige neutral foundation (Beige undertone)
Waffle cone blush
Sunlight concealer

The waffle cone blush didn't show up on me at all... Lol. Maybe I'm just not using enough of this stuff and the foundation?? And the sunlight concealer does seem to brighten up the area underneath my eyes. it doesn't get rid of circles though which is what this concealer is for...

When I was ordering, I wanted the baby kabuki brush, but I couldn't find it anywhere on the website. The only kabuki brush they had was the long handled kabuki and so I got that... But NOW they have the baby kabuki... which really sucks! The long handled kabuki doesn't even have a long handle... The wooden handle + the ferrule is like 2 inches or 2 and a half inches at most... So don't order it and expect a long handled brush like I did.

I've been so busy lately. I worked pretty much everyday this week 9-5 and I'm so exhausted when I get home! We got a whole bunch of new interns and we've been putting them through hardcore training for this past week. I feel a little bad for them though since it's so much to ABSORB in a week. Plus, it also feels like we're going through training ourselves. Ugh. Lately, I've been having some issues with the boyfriend too. I hate to put my problems on blast, but I can't seem to bring myself to verbally and physically hear myself telling anyone everything that's going on cuz I guess I'm in a state of denial. I also hate when I tell people one thing, but things change up so fast the next day like if you break up with someone and then you get back together or something and people are shocked that things happened so fast. I don't know. I'm just weird. Anywho, we're going through some tough times. I don't know if I want us to get through it, but at the same time, I don't want to lose everything that I've invested. We had a really good talk today though about things. More than anything, I really valued that he told me the truth about how he felt and everything that's been bothering him lately even if it hurt me because I've never really understood his side of view when we used to have fights cuz he never told me EVERYTHING about how he felt cuz he didn't want to hurt me. Knowing the truth now though, it makes sooooooo much more sense, and yes it does hurt to hear some of those things, but at least I'm not mad like before because I can understand where he's coming from and how I'd feel if I were in his shoes. I know that everything happens for a reason and I'm in no rush to see where we fall in between everything else. I know things will work themselves out eventually and for the best.

oh yeah, i know what you mean about the foundations coming out the same lol i got a sample kit like a while ago with medium beige, medium beige neutral, and olive medium (or is it the other way around? i forgot lol), and i felt like medium beige and medium beige neutral was coming out almost the same, while olive medium is alot more yellowy lol i also have natural pink cheeks lol sometimes, i feel like it's impossible to cover it too and some light blushes just don't come out well probably cuz its lighter than my natural blush lol

I thought I was the only one who felt that way about Everyday mineral; all the colors look the same to me. :/

I'm sorry to hear about your struggle/hardship you're going through with your boyfriend. Just know that in the end, things work out the way they're suppose to. If you ever need an ear, you can borrow mine and tell me whatever you like. :)

I was pretty surprised by the long handled kabuki when I first got it as well, but I actually think it's better without the long handle. When I'm applying with a mirror, the longer handles have a tendency to hit the mirror, haha.

EM is pretty forgiving with their shades. As long as you're in the right color family, 2 or 3 different shades work. :P

Aww sweet face, it seems like it's a rough patch you're going through at the moment. The truth is the way to go and it takes alot of courage to face it. Follow it and you'll find what you're looking for.

take care and let me know if u need someone to talk to,

I know what you mean about talking about something and then have things change so quickly that people think you're crazy. I always keep things to myself for that reason, and then I type out an angry post and then delete it lol I hope everything works out babe =)
