Liquid Mineral Foundation
$24
Infused with a luxurious blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamin A and jojoba oil that helps to balance and maintain the moisture of your skin. Entirely non-comedongenic and ideal for dry or mature skin.
I am sincerely impressed with this foundation!!
It says that it's suitable for dry, mature skin, however I felt it dried down to more of a matte finish!!
I think this is best for normal to oily skin types!!





The coverage is medium.
Definitely layerable!




Crushed Mineral Foundation
$24
100% pure pigment foundation base with built in sun protection against UVA & UVB rays. This foundation creates a breathable barrier that helps to protect your skin from the environment & pollution. No mineral veil necessary.
I think this would be suitable for oily skin-types because, unfortunately, it was sooo dry on me and made me look a little caky.
Then again, I think it's all about moisturizing and prepping the skin before applying a mineral foundation.
I am not a fan of loose minerals- I prefer mine pressed.
Shade: Vanilla (271)









Crushed Mineral Blush
$16
100% pure mineral blush can be warn all over to create a natural luminosity and dewiness look to the skin . Invent delicious lip colors by blending a mineral blush with an Emani Lip Hydrator or Base Transformer for a glossy finish.
Shade: Panama Mama (916)
Again, I prefer my minerals pressed.
But this blush is very gorgeous.
It's a soft peachy-pink with a little luminosity!










Crushed Mineral Color Dust
$10
100% pure mineral pigments for eyes, lips or face made complete free of talc or fillers. Emani Color Dust goes on sheer or for an intense finish, just wet brush and apply. Blend with an Emani Base Transformer to create beautiful lip colors!
Shade: Kryptonite (825)
Look at how gorgeous that is?!

Swatch on top: applied dry
Swatch on bottom: applied wet
Applied wet, it reminds me of MAC's new Mineralized Eye Shadow in Blue Flame (from the style black collection)!

Hi! I'm Mary!
Thee are gluten friendly? I didn't know skincare/makeup containing any gluten form can cause problems (as I'm gluten-sensitive)! But it's good to know these are safe anyway! I like the liquid foundation and the color dust the most

the liquid foundation looks like it's worth trying out :) but the loose powder one doesn't look too cute on the hand swatch! It sinks into the little lines! :( I like the shade of the blush and I like the eyeshadow! It looks like the one I got from jesse's girl :)
