Overall Beauty Mineral Makeup Review & Giveaway! CLOSED

I've been in love with mineral makeup for a long time, but I've only used the foundation/cover up/base mineral makeup in the mineral powder. It's about time I tried out some mineral eye shadows!

My experience with Overall Beauty was top-notch, high class and ultimately stylish.

Why Do I Say That?


Overall Beauty doesn't just send you a package in the mail with their products - no! Overall Beauty sends their orders out in a package, yes, but they add a little something special! Little Worm makes some of the most adorable handbags that are perfect for makeup storage and carrying - check out her shop! Mine was a pretty yellow with colorful butterflies, but this is the bag that the winner of the giveaway will receive with their mineral eye shadows, all ready for Valentine's Day:


Inside my makeup bag was yet another plastic bag that buttoned, containing my eye shadows and a brush for application, along with business cards and information pertaining to Overall Beauty's products. So, the minute that you receive your package from them, you feel special and pampered.

The mineral powder eye shadows are made with a higher percentage of pure mineral colorants and they contain absolutely no fillers, so you won't have to use nearly the same amount as you do when you wear the pressed powders. As a matter of fact, a little goes a long way - it only took a light dusting on my eyelids to create a dramatic, sparkly color effect. Here is an example of some of the colors, but don't let this sampling fool you! There are tons of colors available from Overall Beauty.


In addition, they don't use talc, carmine or bismuth oxychloride in their mineral powders.

I literally cannot say enough about this mineral eye shadow and Overall Beauty! Kim is a sweetheart - you will enjoy working with her!

Giveaway!

And, as mentioned above, Overall Beauty has offered to present one lucky Mommy Rantings follower with their very own makeup bag, choice of 5 mineral makeup eye shadow colors and Diva status. ;) Oh, and, by the way, this giveaway is International, too!
