Everyday Minerals - Fantabulous Blush Alert!

I have some gorgeous stuff from Everyday Minerals to share with you. Have you tried them before? I actually have tried their mineral foundations before and they are full coverage and long lasting, really good in fact.

What I also have heard is that blushers are what they do best. I have seen a lot of people raving about them. 


I have two below, SoCo and Like Lady Bird Lake. Pinks and peaches fall in to my comfort zone and I would not like to deviate from it.


SoCo is the perfect matte pink blush. Some are too light for my Asian skin tone hence invisible and some are just too bright to pull off during the day, but this is a perfect medium pink for that flushed cheeks. Because it's matte it helps the flush appear more natural. It is loose powder so it tends to be very pigmented and concentrated.


Like Lady Bird Lake is completely the opposite of the one above. It is a shimmery terracotta, much more wearable after the day light fades. Again, fantastic pigmentation, so don't dare to use it directly from the container. Use the back of your hand to tap of the access. Would look great with a tan!


The pigmentation is almost scary and I have to be really careful to use the slightest bit as otherwise I end up looking too made up. This can be a good thing if you use the product sparingly, meaning that it will last you ages compared to products from other leading brands. I would compare the pigmentation to Nars Blushers perhaps.

I am wearing Like Lady Bird Lake below. Because it has this slightly bronzey undertone to it, it automatically adds some dimension to my face and gives that slightly contoured look which I really like. It is shimmery so perfect for when you want to look glamorous!

On the whole, Everyday Minerals do fantastic quality blushers. They retail for $8 which is dirt cheap compared to the quantity and pigmentation you are getting. Don't simply waste your hard earned money after brand logos and fancy cases, buy a product for the result it delivers.


This is another of my favourite products from the lot. Its a roll on eye shadow if I am correct. Sounds pretty vintage eh? It is a lovely shimmery champagne colour. Pretty convenient for a quick highlight on the brow bone, cheekbones or the inner corners of the eyes. It blends flawlessly and the consistency of the powder is very satin-y which is why this stays in my bag for touch ups.


I also have a Everyday Naturals Lipstick in Bourgeois Chic. It has a slight sheen to it and is a nice earthy nude-brown. I really like the natural appearance it gives, not the 'look at the lipstick I am wearing' look. I just don't seem to use it quite often as browns are not something I would use on an everyday basis. 


What I personally would recommend you checking out from the brand would be their brushes, foundations, concealers and blushers. I have tried them out previously too and have always loved them! You'd be surprised how effectively mineral make up can work on your skin.

I've never tried EDM's blushes or lipsticks but I managed to get a few samples of their foundation and mineral powder eyeshadows on eBay and I love them! Would place an order if it weren't for hefty shipping and inevtiable customs charges.

That blush looks so gorgeous and natural on you!! I'm impressed with Everyday Minerals myself, owning brushes, bases, blushes... hehehe, even their concealer is surprisingly really good! I'm just sort of taking a break from the loose powders, but might check them out again as the weather is getting warmer here in Australia =)

I've never tried this brand but I have tried mineral foundation in the past. I really liked how it looked but I'm so bad with loose powders...I always make a mess :/ You're absolutely beautiful, by the way!

I've been using up a sample of a foundation that's so far my HG. Been meaning to get a full-sized one soon but haven't.

Thanks for the swatches on these! I'm really liking SoCo.

I have a couple blushes from Everyday Minerals, but I would've never thought to order SoCo and Like Lady Bird Lake! They look so stunning on you, I think I'm going to have to cave and place another order!
