Face Candy Couture {review+giveaway}


Get ready for some absolutely beautiful mineral makeup, in every shade imaginable from Face Candy Couture!



See what I mean?  That is over 40 color choices... and counting!!  New colors are added every month!

Why mineral makeup, you may ask?  There are tons and tons of benefits, like the absence of chemicals, the non-clogging of pores, and the lightweight feel.


Shantle, the brilliant mind behind Face Candy Couture has created some pretty fabulous makeup in her shop!  I must admit, I'm not much of a makeup wearer in general, but mostly because it feels so heavy on me!  I was super excited to test out some gorgeous colors and check their breathability too!




The possibilities are truly endless!  It was fun experimenting on my eyes with different combinations and the shine is amazing!  You might think you would never use those colors for your eyes or face, but these little babies can be used on your nails, too!  (I just added a splash of water, and painted lots of little toes around here :))  Shantle is super to work with, and pairs her colors into looks, which totally helps out a makeup novice like me :)  (are you just in love with A Touch of Autumn?)  I had fun experimenting with using her minerals wet and dry, and even putting a little sheen on my lips!

  48. Omgosh I've been resisting the urge to shop for new eyeshadow this entire past year, cuz I knew I wouldn't be able to go out much anyway...but I'm just about out of my staple brown shadow, have now learned about healthier mineral makeup like Face Candy Couture, aaand I have a job interview tmrw (fingers crossed!), which'll hopefully lead to me going out more and wearing makeup again!! lol So thank you ladies so much for this awesome giveaway chance!!

    If I were so lucky to win, I would love to try "Harvest Moon", "Leaves", "Feuta Marie", and "Outright Beauty"!! Gorgeous colors!
