I wanted to share an awesome product! Minerals Mate is plastic with multiple compartments that all include pop off lids. This helps with mineral makeup messes!
There are 3 larger compartments and 4 smaller ones. The big compartments are pretty wide and any bug fluffy sized brush can fit in. The smaller compartments are big enough for swirling and for any regular sized eye or concealer brushes. The ridged area on the side can b used for a grip or to help clean your brushes from excess powders.
The one I received to review came in a black design. A nice little extra touch since a pretty design is always wanted. It also comes in another white/ red one (watch out for a giveaway soon).
So far I have used this for foundation. Mineral Mate is EXTREMELY useful for sample sized mineral foundations that come in baggies or the little containers. I have been wanting to try this HD finishing powder (shown below) since its yellow and wanted to see how it would look. I got it in a sample box and have not used it yet because I didn’t feel like dealing with a mess. Usually I hate trying sample sized mineral foundations because it is a pain!
I like to pour some of the minerals in one of the bigger compartments. In this case I poured all of the minerals that came above the sifter. Its okay if you pour in a lot since there pop on caps so you can use it again later. I dip my brush in the powder and tap and/or swirl it in the pop cap. Works just like if this was full sized.
When you are done, cap it and you can continue to try it out for a couple of days. So easy and mess free!
I have also used this to mix liquid foundations. I seem to be in between shades all the time. Minerals Mate makes it much easier to mix a good amount of foundation for the whole week. This is also dishwasher safe so after you have used all the compartments up you can give it a real good clean!
The smaller compartments can be used for your mineral eye shadows. You can pour a little in and mix it with a mixing agent to do a foil look. You can also use the smaller compartments to mix loose eye shadows and make new color!
I personally find this very useful for foundations though. It has saved me from multiple possible clean ups! I will be holding a giveaway for the white/red one sometime this week so check back!
