BUFF'D COSMETICS MINERAL MAKEUP REVIEW

Hello~! Sorry for not posting any beauty reviews lately. I've been working with too many fashion related posts that I almost forgot about makeup. boo. So here's a detailed review of one of my new faves! It is from Buff'd Cosmetics. I got this sample weeks ago and was able to try these amazing products!

ALL ABOUT BUFF'D COSMETICS:
Formulated using only the purest minerals and pigments - Buff'd Cosmetics all-natural mineral makeup is completely free of irritants and toxins that can be harmful to your skin. They have several new product lines including their beautiful new Velvet Matte Blushes, Bronzers and Eye shadows. They also offer full-size jars and refill kits. They offer inexpensive samples of all their powdered minerals so that clients can try before they buy. And they qualify for reduced light-packet shipping! Their website is easy to use with clear, true photos of the products.

This is how the package looks like when I opened it. :)

 
And this is what's inside. 4 jars of mineral makeup and 2 refill kits.
All the jars are sealed so no need to worry whether the products are fresh or not. The inner compartment with sifter is also sealed with sticker. ^-^ Now, let me show some swatches while I review them...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PRODUCT INFO:
  • Original Mineral Foundation
  • Shade: Beige - Medium Light
  • Made in Canada
VERDICT: The photos are taken in natural, no flash and heavily applied. As you may notice, this beige - medium light shade is quite dark for my skin tone. But the coverage is pretty impressive. You can barely see my green-ish veins in this photo. lol. I'm more into liquid foundation as I thought those are the once with good coverage. But this totally changed my perspective with mineral foundation. ^-^ It is very buildable, has a very good coverage and very light weight to the face.

RATING: ⚫⚫⚫⚪ 3/5

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


PRODUCT INFO:
  • Blush - Velvet Matte
  • Shade: Playful
  • Made in Canada
VERDICT: This velvet matte blush reminds me of my favorite blush. Obviously it's matte and perfect for combination/oily skin like me! I love that the product comes in a large jar and I guess this would last me a very long time! It isn't very pigmented but it is buildable. Though, I like these kind of blush as I can control the pigmentation unlike other blushes at shows up really harsh on the face. It looks very natural to the face like especially to my skin tone. ^-^ I super love this blush!

RATING: ⚫⚫⚫ 5/5

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

PRODUCT INFO:
  • Eyeshadow - Satin pearl
  • Shade: Fallow and Saddle
  • Made in Canada
FALLOW - This eyeshadow is perfect for inner corners as highlight and can also be worn alone for a lighter look. The texture is very silky not like other mineral eye shadows that is very chalky. 

RATING: ⚫⚫⚫⚪ 4/5

SADDLE - This is the second best product that I received in the package. You won't believe that I didn't even use primer on the swatch. It is incredibly pigmented!

RATING: ⚫⚫⚫ 5/5

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


PRODUCT INFO:
  • Light Mineral Foundation
  • Shade: Warm - Light
  • Made in Canada
VERDICT: Honestly, at first I thought this product that came in zip lock is just a waste. But since it's there, I tried to swatch it and in my surprise the foundation matches my skin! I was hoping that the first foundation that I showed you earlier was the one in the zip lock and this in the jar. But since I have a lot of spare jars from my makeup collection, I pour this product and found out that it fits my 2.5g jar. I never thought that there's so much product in that packet. Lesson learned, don't judge the ZIP LOCK by it's size. LOL. /i'm trying so hard to be funny here. ;p Same with the first foundation, it is very pigmented and again, I wasn't expecting that pigmentation from mineral makeup. So thumbs up for that!

RATING: ⚫⚫⚫ 5/5

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PRODUCT INFO:
  • Illuminating Dust
  • Shade:Candlelight
  • Made in Canada
VERDICT: The last product in the package is this illuminating dust in candlelight.The name of it fits the shade perfectly. It is not very pigmented but it show a lot of luminance when touched by the light. It looks so pretty in real life. This photo doesn't do any justice. I'm sorry.

RATING: ⚫⚫⚫⚪ 4/5

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 



Overall, I really like their products. It is perfect for combination/oily skin like me. The only thing I don't like about mineral make up is how messy it is when used. Especially if you're in rush. And you can't apply it with anything else but makeup brush (I just wish I can use sponge for faster application) But if the product is as good as this, I can take time to apply it on my face ^-^

How about you, have you tried any of these product yet? Let me know in the comment box! ^-^
