i've just received my TaylorMade mineral makeup samples!
I got Bianca and Juliet foundation samples... they are a perfect match for me... its strange, but my skin tone can handle yellow or neutral foundation colors... anyway, the foundation powder sits v well on my face..and most importantly, no visibly enlarged pores!
I also got TM eyeshadow samples. "Mission" is really nice when applied wet..


Paperdoll- have u tried applying southern magnolia mineral foundation WET? can that be done?

I know, it sounds odd... but try it! I had purchased their cosmetics about five times before I finally wetted my finger and mixed some foundation with the water (maybe even try some moisturizer). It works! I have small pores though and somewhat dry skin so it doesn't enlarge my pores. So I can't speak for everyone but I'd just recommend trying it to see if it works for you. Plus, the samples are so inexpensive! Buy them directly from their site for $3.95 each.

thanks paperdoll- but i can't do the wet foundation look, my skin is very oily and also v dry. i may try it as a concealor tho!

i love southern magnolia too!
here it is

i'm wearing medium beige and light tan (sorry if the name sounds wrong- i've got too many samples and i can't keep track of their names! but this is from southern magnolia)

and today,
same for face, but for eyes, i'm using a mixture of taylor made cosmetics e/s and fryinnae e/s with southern magnolia finishing powder (glove)

the eyes- i messed up a little .. but this is what it looks like. i used purples and reds.

Your skin looks so lovely! It's very luminescent. Did you use champagne kiss bronzer? I that!

Have you tried Southern Magnolia eyeshadow? I haven't yet... but those plum shades look nice!

thanks paperdoll!
again, i must apologize for being so bad with mineral makeup names!!
all i remember now, (my makeup is all at home, and i'm in the office now) is that i used mineral foundation from southern magnolia. AND i topped it off with a light dusting of the white-ish luminous-looking finishing dust (also southern magnolia or SM. it is v v fine.. and when applied looks very pretty. i guess the mineral is v fine? i hate finishing powder that is “flaky” has large bits of glitter... it makes me look like halloween gone wrong. This SM finishing powder is just amazing.. I also have angel from SM, which I use as a highlighter (brow bone, forehead, cheeks, chin and nose bridge). I have combination skin, so I heart SM foundation for its oily-control.

also, with other mineral foundation (MAD, Buff’d, taylormade, fryinnae) although the color match is v gd, and the application is smooth, finishing looks great, they tend to rub off v easily. Not with SM!

i ordered some e/s from SM too. but they come in 1/8 teaspoon which is too little, really! I got some purple and pink shades- not too crazy about the color. The quality is what u would expect from SM- pretty darn gd! Just wish they had more happening colors. Y’know? I USE THE E/S for lip color instead.. they look v pretty as lip color (oh I bought the SM clear lip gel, which I mix with the e/s to create my lip color)

Another vote for Everyday Minerals. It took two sample kits to get my correct foundation colour match but worth it as it is the absolute perfect match to my skintone. It's weightless on the skin and when I'm wearing it my skin looks perfect, but not at all like I'm wearing foundation. Siesta (peach) and Apple (pink) are the two blushes I've tried and both are very pretty, natural colours. I think I prefer Siesta more though. The Everyday Bronzer is great- very natural looking. I think I like it better than my NARS bronzers and that's saying something. The Silk Dust and Finishing Powder are also fantastic at setting, highlighting, finishing etc. I need to experiment with both a bit more to decide which one I like better. Really cheap and fast shipping OS. Excellent customer service.

I also have a few samples and a jar of Meow Cosmetics foundation. The shade names etc are very cute if you are a cat lover like me. I think the foundation shade I chose in the end isn't a perfect match, but I'll be able to play around with the other shades I have to customise it. Also fairly cheap and fast shipping, and the people on the forum are very helpful.

^ I have several blush colors from Everyday Minerals.. some that work and some that don't, and one of my favorite things to do (however nerdy it may be) is to mix colors and personalize it to my skin tone. I also do this with my foundation when the weather changes. Siesta is my favorite

I'm thinking of getting more Everyday Minerals. The only problem is, I really miss using a highlighter (that was not a problem with liquid.) I already use their lightest shade, so I'm not really sure what to do..

Suggestions?

Is the sample size the same as the mini?

Until I read this thread, I had never heard of mineral make-up. It can't be that well-publicised in the UK, or not where I live anyway.
I would like to get some samples, and Meow definately appeals to me, purely for the name If anyone has tried it, would be interested to know what it is like.
