MINERAL BASICS review and {GIVEAWAY!}

Ok, I realize that for my last several reviews I have gone on and on about how wonderful I think the products are and it is starting to sound a little fake but I promise it isn't. I have been able to review some really great things lately and this review was no different. I got to try out the 6 Piece Light Kit from Mineral Basics and I LOVE it!
Here is exactly what goes in the kit (from off the Mineral Basics website):

-Light Neutral Foundation (5 grams powder by weight in 20-gram sifter jar...90 day supply! FULL JAR!) ...for light skin with balanced undertones. One of our most popular shades! Achieve great coverage for acne, scars, bruising, veins, rosacea and more, while looking totally natural and flawless! Also provides a natural sunscreen!

-True Blush- a neutral, dusty rose blush, perfect for just about any skin tone! (5 gram jar)

-Perfect Tan Bronzer/All-Over Color- a brand new shade! Stunning matte rosy beige...gives skin a wash of natural tan color when used all over face...can also be applied to body or just as blush. My personal favorite shade!

-Glow- perfect finishing powder that creates a soft, subtle glow all over! (5 gram jar)

-Finishing Silk- final mineral powder that sets your makeup and gives a flawless, natural finish!! (5 gram jar)

-Light Complete Cover Sample- a heavy concealer that can be used alone (as a foundation) or for spot-concealing. Has a matte finish and balanced undertones. Helps absorb excess oil. (1/4 teaspoon in baggie)

My personal favorites were the Perfect Tan Bronzer and the Glow Finishing Powder. I felt like the Tan Bronzer was exactly what it sounded like and gave me a very natural healthy glow. I used the Glow Finishing Powder under my eyes after putting on my concealer and I thought it brightened up my eyes a bit which I loved. The great thing about this makeup is that even if you use several different products, it goes on so naturally and I never thought I looked like I was wearing much makeup. It just gives your face a very smooth look, hiding the imperfections. The other really great thing about this line is that a little goes a long ways. Each jar of makeup that I got held 1 gram of powder, which does not sound like a lot, but it ended up being a lot more then I thought. The jars are completely full and you use such a tiny bit at a time that they should last you for a long time.
