Mineral Makeup SkinFx Results

Different Minerals

Well, I wore it all day and it didn’t change. Not one bit. I did feel that it was there. Something I’m not used to. My skin looks like it has a nice even tan. Everything matched all the way down my neck. It was nice to see my face and neck the same color. Most of the time my neck stays very white. But this stuff made it all blend nicely. It did look a bit caked at first, but after about 20 minutes I noticed that it sort of “melted” into my skin. It looks very natural. I read that it is water proof and it is! I tried to wash it off. Nope. I had to use my face wash to get it off. So I think this well be great when traveling in Mexico. Put it on and I can even go swimming in the ocean and still look great. 🙂

So, will I use Skin Fx again? Yes I think I will. I won’t decide until I have tested the other samples. I like this so far but it is only the first one I have tried. Once I have tried them all I will make a decision what I will buy.

I found a few sites and have added them to my links page under “Mineral Makeup”. All the links are for makeups that are pure minerals no organics in them as far as I saw. Remember, if you want pure mineral makeup, read the ingredients lists. Anything organic may be natural, but its NOT a mineral and is not needed in mineral makeup.

Mineral Makeup – First Sample Arrived

My first sample arrived late yesterday. This one is from SkinFX. It took 6 working days to get here. That’s not bad. I ordered 4 samples, 3 foundation and 1 eye shadow. The total with shipping was 9.45 cdn. They arrived in a letter. 4 baggies with instructions.

I took the baggies and emptied each one into a shot glass. There is about a half a teaspoon in each sample. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but its enough to try them a few times. The instructions tell you to apply the colors to your forehead. So I did that. 3 different colors. They all look good for me. One is a bit light so I could use that as a winter foundation when I lose my tan.

After about 20 minutes I looked in the mirror and noticed no orange tint…yippee! I tend to turn orange when it comes to foundations. So I applied the colors to the rest of my face and neck in 3 sections. I also applied the eye shadow. Its a nice pink color, but a little to light for me. I like colors that pop.

I’m not too sure about using it all over. It does look a bit heavy. It has left creases under my eyes. The coverage is good. I do look like I have flawless skin. It hides pores and evens out skin tones. Now for the true test. I will wear it for the day and see how it looks after a normal day. I’ll blog again this evening with the results.

My First Order – SKINFX

Bismuth trioxide

Well I have made my first sample order. I ordered from a company called “Skin Fx“. I have been researching companies for about 10 days now and this one has filled all my requirements. I wanted to make sure that I get a product that doesn’t have any extra ingredients. Skin Fx has only the basics, no extra fillers as far as I can see. They are also a Canadian company from Alberta. And I like to try to stay in the homeland.

Many companies add “bismuth Oxychloride”. Some people have reactions to this ingredient. It seems to irritate the skin and give some people breakouts and even rashes. Since I have sensitive skin I don’t even want to try anything with that in it.

Talc” is another offender. I already know that I can’t use it because I tend to get IC flare-ups. “Corn starch” is also like Talc for me. Its something that you don’t want since it has a expiration date. A shelf life cause its made from vegetable starch.

They don’t add any oils or fragrances. I will know for sure when I smell it. I hate it when makeup has a odor to it.

I guess that’s it till I get the samples next week. I’ll do a full review then. I guess its back to finding more samples…
