BF Cosmetics Mineral Paint Dust

Wow, so... it has been WAY too long since I've posted on here! omg! Anyway, lots going on in my personal life and the weather keeps getting warmer. But I've tried a few new products, and I can't wait to tell you about them!

So, on March 9th BF Cosmetics was offering a free full-size Mineral Paint Dust, just pay shipping. So I decided "what the heck... why not?" and I ordered one. But first I had to decide which color I wanted! There are 20 colors to choose from, and I finally decided on #111 (Turquoise). They shipped quickly and everything was packed well, so it got to me safe and sound, and intact!

BF Cosmetics' website describes their Mineral Paint Dust as

My initial thought was that it was highly pigmented, but I wasn't sure I liked how it went on, but man... the color was gorgeous. And it had a nice sheen to it without being shimmery or sparkly to it. I'm not sure why I thought the color would be more matte, but it's really a very beautiful color.

It has a gorgeous metallic sheen, but it was a little hard to apply and blend... However, once it's on it's a gorgeous color with a lot of dimension! I can't wait for a chance to use this again.

Check out BF Cosmetics on their facebook for freebies and deals! They seem to be an awesome company, and I really want to try some more of their products!
