Signature Minerals Hauls

Happy Monday fellas..!! guess what? I finally got my package from Signature Minerals this morning .. !! the delivery takes approximately 2 weeks, fast enough for international shipping isn't it? I am very happy, even I didn't go to college today. ha ha.. ok, stop blabbering.. :P

ok, so actually what I order? I ordered 4 samples of foundation, 1 sample of veil, and one concealer . Not much, huh? Yes, actually when I was hesitant to order a full size product. So I just wanted to try it. The fact is that they provide free samples to costumer for the first time ordering. So actually I got it for free, except for shipping costs is around $ 7.65. The samples is filled fully, they really generous huh? so imagine I could spend all the samples within a month.

The shades that I get is a medium light (5.0, 6.0, 7.0) and medium beige (5.3). They aren't named specifically and only labeled with numbers. Lil' bit confusing indeed, but not a problem for me. I also get a concealer - multitasking and also a veil (angel wings). So now I will swatches them for you, maybe you also intend to order later :)

- 5.0 Medium Light seemed very pinkish, and I don't know if it will fits in my skin tone. I haven't try it.
- 5.3 Medium Beige seemed a little darker, but still able to blend with my skin. I haven't try it.
- 6.0 Medium Light the color looks very yellow, and first I thought it would be too yellow for me, but when I try, suits me pretty well.
- 7.0 Medium Light slightly yellowish color, but not as yellow as 6.0 . I haven't try this one yet.

The coverage is average, I didn't try my concealer yet so maybe it looks better if I put concealer first. They didn't have a many formulas like everyday minerals had. However, the texture it slightly smoother than EDM.
And the Veil .............!! I think its better than EDM's Kaolin powder. It has a pretty good oil-control, and gives me this radiant look. I think I like this veil so far.. Yeah, definitely..!!

Maybe I'll consider to open Pre-order if I found myself quite liking this MMU.

I think that's all, I hope you didn't bored with me already. Lol
See you later !!
