Haul: Mineralogics Mineral Makeup

Just got a big E-Bay haul in of mineral makeup. This is Mineralogics. I couldn't find out much about the product ingredients prior to purchasing, so I was taking a big chance, but the price was right (i.e. cheap).

My entire haul shipped was around $40, but prices in the ML E-Bay store have gone up. They also sell these products on the Mineralogics.net website. Prices below are taken from the website.
I believe the brushes are goat hair, but I'll know for sure when I wash them (the stink). Everything comes in a sifter container except for the eye shadows, those are full to the top. I will be pressing them over the weekend.

  1. Have you tried these products? Are the brushes real hair? How's the quality of the foundation? I recently stumbled across their site and I'd like to know before I decide to purchase. Thanks!

  2. I haven't used them yet. I will use them tomorrow and report back. The boxes are very high quality if that helps. LOL.

  3. This mineral makeup may be paraben free however, it has a dangerous chemical in it. Imidazolindinyl Urea is listed with a rating of "8" on the Environmental Working Groups website. See for yourselves... http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/wordsearch.php?query=Imidazolindinyl+Urea

    Not all mineral makeup is created equal!

  4. The component is crystalline, so it can actually get stuck in holes. Can cause more inflammation. Will provide relief to the skin while providing coverage.
