The All Natural Face

I've been promising a review for that mineral cosmetics Etsy shop, The All Natural Face. Well, here it is. The package arrived on the 9th, which is basically 8 days after it was shipped, which is pretty fast considering the distance.
Here are a few picture of the products and a few swatches - the camera was acting up a bit and I didn't have the patience to take more pics so these well have to do.

The owner of the shop, Crystal, was nice enough to include three extra eyeshadow samples. I used them on top of the primer and they held up quite well, although there was some creasing after about four hours. The colors are vibrant and very pigmented so no complaints here. She forgot one of the brushes I ordered but offered to send it to me so I have nothing to complain when it comes to customer service. I will make another order soon because I want to try out the foundation and blushes, seeing how good the eyeshadow is.
The argan oil is interesting, I used it on my face, it absorbs well into the skin. What I don't like is the smell, which isn't very powerful but a tad annoying. But I'll live with it :)
All in all I'm definitely ordering again.

Deep Steel, Screaming Purple, Dark Smoke, Plum Shimmer, Scarlet Shimmer

Golden Brown, Forrest Nymph, Deep Mauve, Whitest White, Wipsy Violet, Peacock Green, Swiss Chocolate, Cherry Bomb

In other news I wanted to show off a dress I recently got - an original Sonya Rykiel dress. This is actually a thrift, I actually died when I saw the tag. I love it because it's baggy and comfortable and has buttons on both sides that go all the way up.

Last but not least, guess who just won this amazing pair of Jeffrey Campbell wedges?
I'll give you a hint - me! The lovely Karen from Wheredidyougetthat held a giveaway recently and she was nice enough to pick me as the winner. Finally, I'll get the chance to drool over the Ticks in person without having to sell my soul to get them.
