My Jeunessé Mineral Makeup Review and Giveaway Ends 5/15!


Disclosure: I received complementary samples in order to facilitate a review. No other compensation was received. All opinions were honest and my own but may vary from yours. Giveaway is in no way associated with Facebook, Twitter, Google, Pinterest or any other social media site.





Recently, I had the chance to try some mineral makeup products from My Jeunessé. The company was founded by Michelle Wiggins, who created the company after being diagnosed with melanoma. Their products are made without any harsh or dangerous chemicals. No parabens, SLS and they do not test on animals.

I have pretty sensitive skin when it comes to makeup products. Even some makeup products that state for sensitive skin or that don't contain oils etc, can break me out.

I received 4 samples from My Jeunessé in my color choices.

Mineral Foundation - I chose their Sophia shade because I felt like it matched me the best as I have pretty fair skin. I am no stranger to mineral type makeup products but many I have used in the past were dry and didn't blend in well. The foundation from My Jeunessé while powdery initially, blends in incredibly well and ends up feeling like a liquid foundation without the heaviness. My face was able to breathe with the foundation on and I didn't feel like I even had makeup on. It provided a nice coverage but I didn't look like I had a ton of makeup caked on.
Mineral Foundation. I couldn't get a good swatch to show up.

Mineral Blush - I choose the color Pearlescent Pink. This blush has the same feel as the foundation. While it's powdery, it goes on flawlessly and blends well. It's very pigmented and provides a nice color payoff. It has a bit of shimmer so it's not a matte blush. A great color for Spring and Summer!

Mineral Eye Shadow - I chose the color Platinum.
It's a gorgeous shimmery light silver color. It goes on nicely and blends well for those smokey eye looks. It doesn't tend to show up too well on it's own, as when I used it alone, I really only got the shimmer and not too much the actual silver color. I used it on top of some matte eye shadows that I already had to make them shimmery. It worked great.

Lip Gloss - I chose Frosted Pink. I will be honest that I am not the biggest fan of lip glosses in general based on past experiences. In the past, lip glosses I have tried, were goopy, sticky and didn't have any stay power whatsoever. I was excited to see that this lip gloss was not goopy or sticky at all. In fact, it had the shine of a lip gloss but the staying power of a lipstick.

Overall, I loved the products from My Jeunessé. They all went on nicely, blended well and had great staying power. They also did not break me out like so many other products do. I really like that they offer trial sizes of their items so you can try their products and colors without committing to spending a lot of money.

GIVEAWAY - One winner will win 1 foundation, 1 blush, 1 eye shadow and 1 lip gloss. Winner will receive full size products in their choices of colors. Prize retails for $53.00.

RULES - You must be 18 or older to enter and live in the US. Giveaway ends 5/15/13 at 11:59 pm eastern time. Winner will be picked using Random.org and will be emailed. Winner will have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be picked. Use the Giveaway Tools form to enter.
