Emani Minerals Review and Cosmetics Giveaway!–Ends July 19, 2011

*Disclaimer:  This is my own honest opinion.  No money was exchanged.  All I received were free products in order to provide an opinion for this review.

Mineral makeup can be a kinder alternative to skin.





I am becoming a big fan of mineral makeup ever since I began experimenting with all the exciting new products that I have been reviewing as a healthier, but still beautiful alternative to beauty.  Today I will tell you about my experiences with several cosmetics from Emani Minerals that I was sent to review.

I received the Emani Pressed Mineral Foundation in Linen, the Duo Mineral Concealer and Setting Powder in Fair/Medium, the Crushed Mineral Foundation in Vanilla, and the Pressed Mineral Blush in Miami Tan.

I loved the convenience of use with their Pressed Mineral FoundationWith a few pats of their anti-bacterial sponge that was housed separately in the compact, my complexion looked near perfection.  Anyone with light skin that has some yellow tones would love this shade as well from the pretty finish I got from this product that won an award from Shecky’s Beauty Guide as best pressed mineral foundation! 

The next thing I played with was their Duo Mineral Concealer and Setting Powder.  Truthfully, I was unsure about requesting this product from the picture on the website.  It looked entirely too dark for Fair/Medium.  However, I am so glad that I chose it because it was a good color once I opened my package to see it in person.  

Another thing before I even tried this concealer was how excited I was about the size of this product that every woman doesn’t seem to have enough of.  This compact was as huge in weight (12 g.) as their Pressed Mineral Foundation, which impressed me!  As far as coverage, I found it worked on my dark circles like a champ without sinking into the fine creases while the setting powder gave it staying powder.

Next I tried the Emani Pressed Mineral Blush and was surprised, but not disappointed at the shade.  Although it was lighter than I expected, it was a gorgeous  peachy shade that lit up my cheekbones with a naturally healthy glow with just a few sweeps of my blusher brush.

I also asked to try their Crushed Mineral Foundation.  Again, I was unsure of the colors from the pictures shown on their website.  My choice of their Vanilla was a good one and the coverage was wonderful.  My complexion looked amazing while it provided that UVA and UVB protection.

I loved every one of these Emani products and do recommend to check their website.  The only thing I think can be improved upon is the pictures on their website because they can be deceiving.  At the same time, I know I  am interested into trying more of their products because the quality is wonderful.

Thanks to Emani Minerals, one lucky Nuts 4 Stuff reader in the United States wins an Emani Minerals Starter Kit in Medium (Ginger for those golden undertones with a pressed powder foundation, mineral blush, big vegan-haired brush, and two mineral eye shadows) that is pictured below ($49 value)!
