My First Giveaway: orglamix mineral makeup

I was recently given the chance to review orglamix mineral make. Cheri, the creator, has a site on Etsy.com . I have sensitive skin with rosacea so, I'm always on the hunt for products that will cover the reddness but not bother my sking. Here is where orglamix mineral makeup comes in.

Orglamix’s products are formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, synthetic fragrances or dyes, petro-chemicals, or phthalates. To be honest, I don’t know what those chemicals are. But if I can’t pronounce them, I don’t want them on my face.

I was able to try three different products. Here's what I chose and what I thought.

Menthe - Pure Organic Mineral Perfecting Concealer
I was most excited to try this product. The product description states that it's perfect for covering blemishes and redness. So, I put this on my face using a brush. I put it on one side of my face to see the difference. I couldn't believe how much of the red it covered. I would even be tempted to wear this without foundation.

Makore Pure Organic Mineral Foundation
I put the foundation over the concealer. I loved that it gave great coverage. Normally after about an hour after putting foundation on, I start to itch. Not with the orglamix. I actually forgot that I add it on! That is what I look for. I also put it to the test by rubbing my hand over my cheek. Not a single smudge was on my hand. Another plus.

Sesame - Pure Organic Mineral Eye Color
Currently, she has 115 colors of eye shadow! It was really hard for me to choose. Colors range from everyday neutrals to fun going out colors. Plus, at $4.99 a piece, you can afford to try new looks. I chose the Sesame color because I wanted a fun color but something I could wear to work. It fit both of those categories. As I was applying, I noticed there were tiny bits of sparkle. Not enough to be overpowering, but just enough to make your eyes sparkle. I think the sparkles are my favorite part of the eye shadow. The shadow blends very nicely and stays put.

My overall opinion is that orglamix mineral makeup is awesome. The prices are great, she is very good at answering questions, the shipping was fast and most of all, she offers so many colors that it would be impossible to not find what you are looking for.

Now to the giveaway. She has agreed to offer 1 winner their choice of three products from the Pure Organic Mineral Eye, Blush, Glow,Foundation or Color Corrector formulas.

For one entry, please check out orglamix on Etsy and let me know what your favorite products are.
