going the mineral way

I've recently been testing out mineral makeup and one company that was generous to send me generous-size samples was J.Lynne Cosmetics. Owned by Jessica Lynne Miller, hence the company name, Jess developed her own line of makeup after using "traditional" makeup that she found only irritated her skin. Thus, in 2005 she created J.Lynne Cosmetics based out of Arizona. Back in December Jess emailed me about trying out a few products:

On the list

Soft Silk Mineral Blush in shades-Bolero, Innocence, Virtue, True, Crush, Mamboo

Plush Velvet Mineral Eyeshadow in shades-Briar, Beach, Pier, Willow, Island

and Satin Pearls Mineral Eyeshadow in Sandstone

I really liked the texture of the mineral makeup, soft & blendable. There is no scent & she doesn't do any animal testing! Also, the makeup lasted all day.
For my colour reference I'm in MAC NC30 & the blush shades that looked the best with my colouring were:
True (lush copper coral hue),
Crush (rich, warm pink with rose/peach undertones),
Innocence (soft matte peach pink),
Bolero (warm peach with pink & bronze undertones)
As for the eyeshdows all of them worked well & were gorgeous, my absolutely faves were;
Sandstone (nude, neutral, taupe brown, shimmery),
Island (medium khaki brown, with muted green undertones),
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jess for her wonderful samples & that she was a real doll to deal with:) Very polite & fast-shipping! A real pleasure.
