The Truth About Mineral Makeup

Here's the entire mineral makeup collection from Ultimo Cosmetics. I got it for $30 off of eBay with FREE shipping. A really good deal and the quality is great, too. Now I've never tried Bare Escentuals, but I can't imagine that it's a whole lot superior to Ultimo or any other mineral makeup brand (btw, you may have noticed that EVERYONE has jumped on the mineral makeup bandwagon, from Estee Lauder to MAC). My favorite items in the collection have got to be Warmth and Silk. Warmth is like a bronzer without the sparkle. It gives a really natural-looking, warm (haha) glow to the face. Silk is simply awesome. It brightens up your complexion with light-reflecting prisms that literally give you a fresh-faced glow. One thing I have noticed about mineral makeup is subpar coverage. If you have a lot of acne or very dark undereye circles, you'll get much better coverage with a cream concealer.


  1. I have really been meaning to jump on that bandwagon!

  2. wow, I've never come across a make-up blog before, (don't have a clue why), but this one seems pretty cool! A reliable place to come when in need of the truth about make-up, because let's face it, if you ask the cashier of Bare Essentials why you should buy their make-up and not Loriel's, they'll just feed you a fat load of lies.


  3. Nice blog.
