Pure Luxe Mineral Eyeshadow Swatches & Other MMU Hauls

.



Since my first batch of foundation samples from Joppa and Fyrinnae didn't work, I ordered again but with different finishes and shades so I can see which one is best, I also got a few baggy samples from Buff'd Cosmetics. I also wanted to try Fyrinnae's Oil Control Powder and Rice Powder Primer so I will see how those work out and of course report my findings to you ladies!



The Fyrinnae foundation, "Sunstone" Super Power Foundation is great for those who need a lot of coverage, however I found it to be just a tad bit too cakey for me, as I don't need too much coverage, so I ordered samples of the same shade and in "Sheen" and "Matte" Finishes to compare (haven't done it yet) as well as their other shade "Ametrine" just in case it's off a bit.



I REALLY like Joppa Minerals, the coverage and lasting power is AMAZING!!!! (For me anyway), and I am just loving the airbrushed look it gives (sorry I haven't taken any pics, i've been bumming it M-F), but i'll do a fotd using their foundation and maybe you can see what im talking about...thanks Nikki and Mhean for suggesting to try Medium #3, Erica (best friend) said she didn't even notice I was wearing foundation! LOL, so I guess it was a perfect match to my skin, and I thought so too. So that just might be my perfect shade.

Frankly, I don't have time to mix my own foundation as much as I used to, so as much as I have enjoyed Silk Naturals because it allowed me to customize my shade as well as give me exceptional coverage, I just want something now that's already ready to go.

I wanna try the other samples I got just in case, and then once I am done and made a decision, I can go ahead and order a full-size of it!

Here are all of the Pure Luxe Eyeshadows I have and swatches! These were APPLIED DRY, NO BASE. Enjoy! (they are in name, open jars, and swatch form), sorry I spelled "Rococo" wrong! I was too lazy to double check! LOL.

Belated Happy Birthday Nessa!
Ooooh, those are lovely pigment swatches from PureLuxe. They all look so yummy. Glad you got a shade match with Joppa, that's one of my HGs, plus their finishing powder which keeps me matte all day. Regarding Buff'd you might match the shade Buff as that's my Buff'd shade too :-)

Emilee @ GMM said...

Wow, they're SO pigmented! I was planning on making another She Space haul, but now I might have to look into Pure Luxe instead. :)

Thanks for putting so much effort into getting the swatches for us!

missxxmai said...

OH! & the blushes are so pretty =) i never use to care for blush, but ever since i started reading your blog, i'm all over it =)

Andra said...

I love Pure Luxe shadows! Smug, Sour Apple and Amethyst are some of my faves. I must try Bad Gal and Princess Gertrude, they look beautiful. Thanks for the swatches. :)

Lovely shadows Vanessa! I don't know if I said happy birthday yet, so happy birthday!

mayaari said...

thanks for all those swatches! I have a few of them, but there are a few that you swatched that may have to be added to my collection, haha. I love using smug/tickled for pink looks, and rococo makes a great eyeliner for more subtle looks :)

suzie wuzie said...

Ethereal Prey said...

Fabu-less Beauty said...

Let us know how you like Buff'd! I'm currently testing it right now. Now I'm curious about Joppa. What formula did you choose?

Vanessa said...

Hi Fabu-Less Beauty! I used FULL coverage on all the mineral samples I got including Joppa. :)

Lily said...

Hey Vanessa, did the other joppa foundations work for you as well? Medium #2 & Medium Light #3? I'm so glad you did a post on this because I was about to order some of their samples. I think we're the same skin tone NC 30? lol.

Lily said...

okay, thanks a bunch!

Christiana Divine @ Memoirs of A Shopping Addict said...

Hey Nessa, just thought you might wanna know that Pure Luxe's Bubblegum Ballz Collection is the same as TKB Trading's Pop Collection... except with TKB you get more product for a cheaper price. :) Just thought you might be interested. :)

Bliss said...

Great Swatches, you are soo making me lemmm for them, i did not go through my old order, this is making me so tempted

N a b i said...

VERY nice ! I like all the swatches. You are very good at taking photos. The color is awesome !

iamgrape1119 said...

。。。DROOLS!The colors look GORGEOUS! You've just created a new lemming for me!

Mukho said...

hi Vanessa!
Girl, I'm so loving these absolutely brilliant colors. Can't wait to see what kinds of eye looks u come up with on these :)
Wish I din't have a conservative workplace where even a tad of green liner makes me feel out-of-place... then I could really have some fun with beautiful shades like these.

Shen said...

wow! great colors! i love! i got my pure luxe eyeshadow samples just recently. :) you're such an enabler! :)

shades of hue said...

Wee! You're becoming a mineral makeup addict, welcome to the club! =) I can use Joppa Medium-Light#3 but it's a tad dark so I mix it with Light #3. I love Joppa as well, though some asians don't like it because it has a slight pink cast, but it's not noticeable on me. LOVE the color selection. Do try Aromaleigh e/s, you'll love 'em, very pigmented.

vivian said...

i love the colors! They are beautiful.

I was wondering if you ordered the sample sizes for the pure luxe eye shadows.

slvrlips said...

OMG!!!!! These colors are fabulous! Thanks for sharing. I've been staying away from the mineral products because I know it will be a new addiction but, I have to order those blushes they are hot, hot , hot

eBeautyBlog said...

ohhh look at all those beautiful colors. Thank you for the swatches. I luv ur page. It's always colorful with eye shadows :)

vanillasmush said...

Hi Vanessa, the pure luxe eye colors that you have shown here, are these the sample (1/8 tsp size) or the 5g size? I am in lurveee :)
