October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and E.L.F. is giving all proceeds from the sale of its mineral lip gloss in Pageant Princess. So you can grab some makeup at a great price and for a good cause too.
Mineral makeup has been on my mind lately. I have been wanting to try it for years. I have to use good face makeup because I have sensitive skin suddenly. I say suddenly because as a teenager I never (well I shouldn’t say NEVER, but very rarely) had acne or any kind of blemishes and let me assure you, I did nothing for my face. I would wash with plain water. I could use makeup from the dollar store and it would never bother me.
I should have really enjoyed my supple teenage, non-sensitive, acne-free skin because now that I’m in my twenties, I have break-outs! Go figure. I have to take better care of my skin now than I did when I was a teenager. I know I should be more consistent since I do have the basic necessities to take better care of my skin. I would like to try some of E.L.F.’s mineral makeup to see if I have less irritation than I would with other makeup brands that I have tried. In fact, I think that when I get new makeup I’m going to try some mineral makeup. I’m not really much of a makeup wearer, but I like to have what I need when I want to wear it. I’m not one of those girls who has to “put on my face”. I feel comfortable with or without makeup. I have a small makeup collection of the basics: powder, mascara, eye liner, lip liner, lip stick, blush, and eye shadow.
I would never dream of buying cheap cosmetics again. Instead, I purchase my makeup products on sale. You should also know that E.L.F. (which stands for eyes, lips, face in case you were wondering) is offering a special golden look cosmetic collection for free when you buy $20 worth of product! The coupon code is GTLGOLD. There is also a subscription to Women’s Health thrown in if your order is $30 or more. And only two dollar shipping if you spend $15 or more (code FBLIKE 2 at checkout) I love gifts with purchase! Am I the only person in the world who hasn’t tried mineral makeup? Do you use it?
