Southern Magnolia Minerals - Review and Giveaway CLOSED

Live, Laugh, Love Naturally!

SMM
makes your skin look beautiful & helps keep it that way. No heavy makeup or cakey foundations. We use mineral pigments designed to lie gently on the skins surface to magically hide dark circles, age spots, uneven skin tone to rosacea, scars and more by reflecting light away from flaws. The result is flawless & radiant-looking healthy skin. Southern Magnolia Minerals hides your flaws, not your face!

Our products contains NO oils, perfumes, dyes, talc, bismuth so they are gentle and non-irritating even for sensitive skin. Its like no other makeup on earth! You can spend more money, but you can't get better makeup than Southern Magnolia Minerals.

SMM is a small, family-owned and operated Mineral Makeup Company located in the foothills of North Carolina.

I had the chance to try several Southern Magnolia Minerals products - foundation, eye shadow, bronzer, Well Rested concealer, and their Mint Skin Prep. This was my first time with powder foundation - and after a rather comical explosion in the bathroom, I soon got the hang of applying. I didn't think I'd like a loose mineral powder foundation as I've always used liquid mineral-based. I'm amazed at how well this covers! While applying it I didn't think it was offering enough coverage (I have a lot of redness to my face, as well as dark circles and zombie white skin) but when I stepped back I was definitely impressed - the redness was reduced to a faint blush, and my dark circles disappeared. Plus, the powder is silky smooth and very sheer, so it felt good on and my skin just glowed. It lasted through a whole day of work, too.

The Mint Skin Prep was scary looking - it's a minty green powder . But I know green can neutralize redness, so I dusted it on before the foundation - and I am so glad I did! With this under the foundation, the red is basically gone. Poof! My skin looked flawless, glowing and healthy. This will definitely be a new staple in my makeup bag.

I tried three of their eyeshadows - Poppies in Oz, a vibrant, reddish orange that is a fun pop of color; Mystique -this was my favorite. It looks purplely in the jar, but goes on with more brownish pink undertones and looks fantastic; and their Orange Peach, a soft, shimmery pinkish orange.

SMM offers lots of mineral cosmetics - eye shadows, foundations, concealers, brushes, makeup kits and lots more, and would be perfect for any girl on Santa's list. Check out their blog for lots of information and how their story started.
