Everyday Minerals haul

Finally my order from EM came. I love online window shopping, but hate actually ordering, then having to wait for packages. Too impatient.

Also got some L'oreal Men's Power Buff Exfoliator, based on rave reviews I've read on Fei and Ricebunny's blogs. I've tried it out only once, seems okay so far but will have to see how good it is in the long term. I already have an exfoliating medium I love, the Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Refiner, but I'm looking for something cheaper to stretch the Clarins stuff out as it costs over CDN$30 for a 60 mL tube. Meanwhile, the L'oreal stuff costs CDN$9.99 at drugstores and about CDN$1.50 cheaper if you get it at Wal-Mart.

Pictures because I take pictures of everything...

L'oreal Power Buff, Everyday Minerals custom kit - all blushes, and free sample kit (the smaller jars), also the Pink Ribbon blush:

I have so many blushes now, I don't think I'll use these up ever. But I love how 6 of these blushes cost $18 in total, while one Bare Escentuals blush alone costs that same amount. And MAC blushes cost $30 for just one. With blushes, I find that cheap brands do them just as well as higher-end brands. And I bet the EM ones have almost as much product as the Bare Escentuals ones, as these EM jars are packed completely full, while BE ones have quite a lot of empty space in the jar.

Wow, that's quite a EM haul!! Aren't those blushes rather big, though? I wish the EM foundations had worked for me :( I hate this neverending search for foundation for my raggedy-ass skin

those blushes are supposed to be 2.5g, but yeah i find i don't need to use much to get colour payoff so they will last a long time.
and yep its is way more blushes than i need :P
i gotta cut down on spending now, BUT, you just had to make a review on Silk Naturals that sounds so good! :S
..must...resist.....the urge... to buy.......

Hi Arashi, thanks for stopping by my new blog! I don't think Besame is only sold online, but it's pretty hard to find, I believe Bergdorf or Bendels or is it Barneys? in NYC sells Also probably at some small beauty stores, you can check their website. Hope you don't mind if I link you :)

hahahahaha! Sorry about that xD

It's funny that I made that search for foundation comment *just* before my Silk Naturals finally arrived in the mail. I wore this all day and sweated and ran around at work, and I still looked good o.O O woops I should save this for my blog, haha.

sSsssSSSilkkkKKkk NnnnNaturrRRRRrralssss.... (they should pay me to be their PR rep)

Hey, I'm proposing to all my favorite makeup bloggers that we should all post pictures of ourselves wearing our favorite masks or peels and link each other. I think it'd be really fun!!
