Everyday Minerals Haul Pt. 2

My Everyday Minerals haul came in yesterday...I think I'm covered for foundation and concealer for a good three years! I love the inexpensive prices and all the different formulas. I like my foundation to be very matte, but there are some days where I want a little dewiness or glow. I have 'Light Medium' foundation in three formulas; matte, semi matte and intensive. So for this haul I got 'Light Olive', a more yellow foundation in my favorite matte finish. And of course I got a full-sized concealer in 'Multi-Tasking'. It covers red and blue-based imperfections...acne, acne scars, veins and under eye circles. If you have light to medium beige or ochre skin tones like myself, this concealer will work for you. Oh, everything I got other than the samples, I chose from the Full-Size Personal Custom Kit. The kit is $32 and you get to choose one item from six categories. Yes, I love deals!

So here's my haul...enjoy!

Top: Finishing Powder in 'Natural Reflection Light', Concealer in 'Multi-Tasking' Bottom: Matte Foundation in 'Light Olive'

I also hung out with Miss Lady L yesterday. Helped her move in and buy house stuff...Here is her goofy ass driving a truck to haul all her goods home...hehehehe.


Re: Edit
Worry not ladies, Lady L was NOT driving when I took this pic, she was just posing (harhar)...she was actually rushing to get off the phone with her hubby so she could get her 'MAN on'. She will make a great bus driver someday (ROFL). This woman acts fast...she gets sh*t done in no time!

Makes me want to re-visit EDM again...hehe. I'm been using them for awhile, but then I'm currently trying other mineral companies right now. I can't wait for her new site to launch, because they have new foundation colors that might be a better match for me.

i so want to order from EM but i really don't need anymore foundation or blushes from them...I just want to get the mint concealer but don't want to pay shipping just for that. Have you tried it yet, and how do you like it?
