I was so so happy yesterday as I came home with two packages. One from Purely Cosmetics ( which I finally nailed the shade, yay! review’s for tomorrow!) and one is the package from Pure Anada. My co-mineral makeup lover pal Aileen sent me samples of mineral foundations in Mountain View and Ivory Chinook ( which is good for fairly light warm skin tones ) , and I was not able to find my shade in them, but was able to find a very good ( no not just very good, but extraordinarily good! ) mineral foundation in Pure Anada! So imagine my glee when the samples I ordered finally landed.
Amongst the 12 samples worth $9 (with free shipping, isn’t that great? ), I immediately grabbed the three foundation shades: Golden Harvest, Soft Wheat, and Mountain Sunset. ( on the first photo, from L-R, and Mountain Sunset is at the bottom ) Here are swatches on my tissue paper :
Pardon the poor picture quality of the mineral foundation swatches as my room has poor lighting conditions. ( I better do something bout it ). The shades look very warm, and yellowish but there is also a mix of olive in the tone. From my eyes, they look like fusions of yellow and olive tones. Golden Harvest is perfect for light to medium shades with warm tones ( and even yellowish ), Soft Wheat happens to be my chosen shade, that can be used by light to slightly more medium shades with warm tones ( even with yellow undertones like me ), and Mountain Sunset is for those more on the deeper medium shades, but my issue with Mountain Sunset is that it won’t probably work for those who have strong yellow undertones because it’s too red for them. This would probably work best for tanned girls or medium shaded “morenas” or dusky belles. ( I can’t quite explain , but I hope you got it! haha! )
Anyway, I’m so recommending everyone to try Pure Anada Mineral Foundations because they offer such great coverage, make my skin look poreless and porcelain-like ( and it’s such a hard thing to do because I admittedly have crater scars on my face ! ), and well, sampling is 12 ziplocs for $9, free shipping! Haha!
