{glo minerals}

A couple of months ago I was introduced to a new brand called Glo Minerals - I have been testing out their products for awhile and I'm totally hooked! All of the products are non-comedogenic, have UV protection, are offered in a wide variety of colors and pigments (that means a match for every skin color), and are gentle enough for the someone with super sensitive skin. The makeup lasted all day and the cleanser and lotion left my skin feeling light and clean before getting in bed at night.

 Naturally, the lipsticks were my favorite!! I sampled four matte lipsticks [crush, sorbet, bombshell and demure] and two cream lipsticks [bloom and heirloom]. The matte lipsticks really lasted all day - even through morning tea and lunch! The colors are packed with pigment so you only need a small swipe across your lips to make them pop!

I haven't strayed from my everyday blush and eyeshadow in awhile. I'm pretty straightforward when it comes to these two beauty products. Natural eyeshadow and a rose colored blush. The blush was really light and pretty (as it should be haha) and I could easily control how much I put on. I actually began putting this in my clutch when I would go out at night because I could put a little powder on my finger and blend it in for touch-ups.

 A natural eye palette is always a must for me. I don't do crazy colors or anything wacky. Mainly because I like to make my lashes look as long as possible. With these simple 4 colors I could create a simple daytime look and then amp it up with the darkest color for a night out. The lightest color was perfect to apply at my tear ducts - a trick I use to make my eyes pop a bit :)

The last glo products I tried out were the Gentle Cream Cleanser and the Balancing Moisture Remedy. Both of these were for sensitive skin so after spending a day in the sun it was wonderful to have a face wash without any type of texture. I don't like scents in my face lotion so I wasn't too wild about the moisturizer - however, I gave it a shot and really grew to like it. It has a fresh, flowery smell without being too overpowering and it left my skin really soft and smooth.
