Emani Mineral Cosmetics Review and Giveaway!!



Let me start this feature by saying that I hardly ever wear any sort of makeup. A concealer now and then, some lip gloss-that's about the extent of my makeup. (Although I have experimented with mascara a few times too). Recently I discovered Emani Minerals, and decided that if I was going to give the whole makeup thing a shot, then I couldn't do any better than mineral cosmetics. This way I was getting started with natural, paraben free, organic products. 
So, when given the opportunity to choose a product from Emani Minerals for review, I jumped at it! With the suggestion to start with one of Emani's popular How 2Be Guides, I browsed the selection and finally chose the Day Diva Box.


This set includes 1 Vegan Shadow Brush, 3 Mineral Color Dust Shadows (Safari, Sand and Peach Attitude) and a Hydrating Mineral Lipstick in the Ava color.
The set comes in a handy little box that also includes written and pictured instructions for use. 
After a deep breath and a sincere hope that my first time trying out eyeshadow went well, I proceeded to open my new tools, and stepped in front of the bathroom mirror :)



I'll just show this in pictures, as it is easier than describing it. And I do apologize for the odd angles of the pics!
This is after step 1, applying the medium shade

After step 2, applying the darkest shade.
All finished, all 3 shades applied!
Honestly, it was pretty easy to follow, and I was surprised at that. I'm not sure how professional it looks, but it did add some color and glamour to my eye area! 


The lipstick lasted a good length of time, and matches the eyeshadow quite nicely. 

So, after my trial with some "real" makeup :) I am very pleased with the results. I'm sure it will get easier and look better after some more practice too!


"EMANI was established in 1998 with one simple purpose in mind; to provide a line of clean cosmetics that meet and exceed the high standards of the professional makeup industry and at the same time, promotes a healthy complexion for all women.

What we put on our body is as important as what we put in it.  Our skin is our largest organ, and it needs oxygen for good health.  Traditional makeup uses a variety of chemicals and comedogenic ingredients that clog the pores and impede the skin’s ability to absorb oxygen.  Without oxygen, the skin cannot properly produce collagen and elastin.  As a result, when chemical-based makeup is applied consistently, the skin over time suffers, loses vitality, wrinkles and breakouts can exacerbate. 
EMANI gives a new twist to the perception of natural makeup. We believe that women should not have to sacrifice their health in the name of beauty.  At EMANI, we have devoted time to studying the human skin and the full impact that EMANI products will bear on women’s health. By using the naturally occurring minerals, organic extracts and pigments, and by keeping our products free of talc, paraben, gluten and harsh chemicals, we at EMANI have created a line of non-comedogenic, nature-based makeup that not only works with your skin and supports its natural vitality, but also feels luxurious and looks glamorous with beautiful finishes that are long lasting.  With EMANI products, women really can have it all."


One of my readers will receive a Day Diva How 2Be Box from Emani!!
