A Quick Note on Some Small Changes

Hey guys, I just wanted to drop a quick note on some changes that have either just happening, or will be soon.

We have changed suppliers for our 20 gram mineral makeup jars (foundations, blushes, veils). They are slightly smaller than the ones from the previous supplier. All listings are being updated with the new weights. Prices have already been changed (lowered) to reflect the difference.

Ironically, the eye shadow jars are slightly LARGER. We will be making a few small changes in listings, but the prices are staying the same on those for now.

In case you haven't noticed yet, we are selling the smaller 3 gram Eye Shadow jars individually instead of just in sampler sets. The 3 gram jars are filled by weight & volume. I know, that sounds a little weird. The jars simply can't all hold the same weight. If we did it by weight only, some would be filled to the brim, and others would look practically empty. The ingredients that go into the mineral makeup all weight differently. Which is why our eye shadows all have different weights listed. It's not as simple as saying a 10 gram jar holds 2 grams worth of product. Our 10 gram jars hold anywhere from 1.2 grams to almost 3 grams of eye shadow.

Anyway.... LOL.... I got side tracked a little....

At the moment, the MINI 3 gram jars are $3.50 each, and only in our Etsy Shop. We are hoping to add them to our website at some point. You know, in all my free time (hahahahaha)!

Quick 'warning'.... during the summer months, we CANNOT promise our lip balms, lipsticks and sugar scrubs will arrive without melting damage. The scrubs become more fluid and sometimes will leak, despite the foam liners. We pack them in individual bags to limit any 'damage' to other products. Lip Balms & Lipsticks may melt up into the caps. Some tips. If they're still fluid when you open the box, put them upright in your refrigerator until they've completely cooled. It shouldn't take long. If they're no longer fluid, but completely stuck up in the cap, go stick it upright in the cup holder in your car. By the end of the afternoon, chances are it will have remelted back into the tube. LOL! But after that, DO NOT KEEP THEM IN YOUR CAR! LOL! You can clean out the lids with q-tips.

I know this is kind of a boring blog post. It happens.

Have fun guys!!!

Get the Look: Neapolitan Ice Cream

Included in this Collection:

BABY DOLL PINK Mineral Eye Shadow (strawberry pink) - Matte Finish
SNOW QUEEN Mineral Eye Shadow (white vanilla) - Pearl Finish
ESPRESSO Mineral Eye Shadow (chocolate brown) - Matte Finish

✥ ✥ ✥ GET THIS LOOK ✥ ✥ ✥ 

Apply Primer over the entire lid.

Apply BABY DOLL PINK to the inner corner with a soft eye shadow brush.

Apply ESPRESSO to the outer corner & lightly along the crease line with a soft eye shadow brush, and then smudge underneath for a soft eyeliner look with a firm detail brush. 

Then apply SNOW QUEEN to the center of the lid, lightly blending outwards into the colors on either side. Dab more color on if you want a more intense white. A short bristled detail brush is best for this. Then dust a little along the brow bone as a highlighter.

Get the Look: Mermaid

Our Mermaid Eye Shadow Trio is a bold & playful look that is softly shimmery. With a gorgeous blend of bright ocean blue & gorgeous greens, and topped off with delicate glittery sparkles, this is a look that is always fun!

Modeled Photos are shown applied over Primer.

Included in this Collection:

MAIA Mineral Eye Shadow
THEIA Mineral Eye Shadow
ASTERIA Mineral Eye Shadow

✥ ✥ ✥ GET THIS LOOK ✥ ✥ ✥ 

PRIMER was first applied over the entire lid.

THEIA Mineral Eye Shadow was applied at the inner corner & in the center of the eye lid.

MAIA Mineral Eye Shadow was applied in the outer corner & along the crease with a soft bristled crease brush. Using a detail brush, we also smudged along the lower lash line and darkened up the color in the corner. 

ASTERIA Mineral Eye Shadow was applied along the upper brow bone, around the tear duct, and underneath the lower lash line. (we lightly applied a little more primer with a clean brush to help the glitter in this eye shadow really stick & pop out).
