Fresh Faces Mineral Make-Up

It always hard for me to choose the right tone of any powders and foundations. I'm between 20 and 21 (Laneige foundation or any Korean make-up brand) 20 is a bit light for me and 21 is too dark LOL~ But I can easily mix and match right color by using just a few different foundations or powders. And never turned out to pick up right shade for mineral powders/foundations. Cause usually swatches on web-sites are not corresponds to the actual/real tone and I stayed away from the shopping of mineral products. But recently  Fresh Faces Minerals contacted me and asked if I would like to try out some products from the web-site and I said YES cause there is a lot of mineral eye shadows available and I was really exciting to use some. And surprisingly I was sent some face powders as well which I'm excited about :)

Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, Zinc Oxide, Iron Oxides. May contain: ultramarines, chromium oxide green
Sample size: Net wt. 9g
Anastacia's experience: It's matching my skin color quite good and seems like I can wear just this shade! I like to apply some concealer before using Fresh Faces Mineral Foundation. I use foundation brush for the mineral powder because I like to pack on the product, it's a bit sheer for me and I prefer more nice opaque (but not heavy) coverage. Definetely buildable foundation but more U apply more it gives pink undertone to the skin. For my oil skin type it works great. My make-up stays on for 6+ hours without any touch-ups whereas before I had to use blotting tissues two times a day. There is no any specific odor and I think I like this product but I wish it has more dense cover.

Ingredients: Kaolin clay and HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer (and) Silica
Sample size: Net wt. 5g
Anastacia's experience: I've heard some people has an allergic reaction when using silica powder and personally I don't. This powder works very nice for my oily forehead and cheek areas through out the day. It white in color and has a slightly white traces after the application but this is not so much noticeable. I like to dust it only on needed areas of the face with a big powder brush.

Anastacia's experience: The eye shadow was swatched on un-primed skin with a flat shadow brush. Direct sun light. On the web-site all the eye shadow pictures looks much darker than it actually is. For example, Flirty eye shadow looks more like dark burgundy sorta color and I got dusty rose shade in the sample jar. But all of them looks much darker and brighter on any creamy texture eye shadow base. Each color I have has slightly shimmer to it. Bermuda Party has green micro shimmers but it's not very significantly on the eyes.

Here is all the swatches using slightly wet brush. All the colors looks much brighter and shimmery.

All product information can be found on the bottom of the jar.
Sorry guys, I'm a bit lost cause my PC can't read blogspot.com anymore and I started using it through Google Chrome and here are some other functions and everything new to my eyes, so I have to stopp this review here. But I want to say that I'm really enjoy to use of these products! 
If U already have any stuff from Fresh Faces please let me know what do U think? If not which eye shadow colors U would like to have?
ThanQ for visiting and have a great day!
