MAD Minerals FOTD and A Bit of Cam Whoring!

The Muse is quite the cam whore today! She couldn’t help herself! After using her new MAD Minerals she felt so glamorous that she couldn’t stop clicking picture after picture to show you how WOWZER her eyes came out!

What do you think?

After work and my eyes are still crackling away!

You may remember our guest Face of the Dayer Julie from a few days ago! She had done this AMAZING purple look that the Muse fell in lust with! After seeing it I ran (I never walk when cosmetics are around) over to the MAD Minerals website and immediately placed an order for the exact same colors that Julie used on her eyes!

So I’m mighty impressed with these piggies I picked up at MAD Minerals. For one thing they are cheap as day old chips with great pigment and fantastic hold through the day into the evening. Another fantastic thing is their catalog is pretty darn huge and they have an array of colors to suit any mood or taste!

1/4 tsp. Sample Jar is $2.25 and believe me a little goes a long way so that small amount will last you ages!

The texture of these is very weird because inside the jar they appear thin and almost transparent but as soon as you apply you’ll notice right away the color pay off they pack is pretty huge!

The company sells larger sizes if you’re loving a particular color, I personally just brought some sample size jars.

I ended up buying all the colors Julie used and they also threw in three sample jars which was very generous!

They shipped these within a day and I had them within two days or so! Very fast turnaround time!

Overall it’s worth a look at and the Muse deems it fit for purchase!

A special thanks to Julie who’s enabled me to the wonders of these pigments!

If you’re wanting these at the moment Barbi from MAD Minerals informs me that they are going to do a Halloween Sale shortly with 20% off the entire site!

Off to make my list of goodies I want!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    ….blogger just erased my comment.


    …okay since I can’t sit up and type here for very much longer, basically the gist of my original comment was:

    1. Muse you so pretty! Violet and purple look great on you!

    2. Hey, you like Shu’s Gloss Lacquer in Radical Fuchsia too! Only it looks better on you because you’ve got light skin and I don’t.

    3. Thank you for alerting us all to MAD Minerals! Can’t wait to start buying because MAC never seems to put out pigments in colors that I like and Houston doesn’t have a PRO store here because we suck.

    Have a good evening m’dear! And I’m sorry I comment so much– for once in my life I actually have a lot to talk about.

    Hi Muse,

    Purples do make brown eyes pop! I like that you always coordinate your outfits with your eye makeup.

    I may have to look into the MAD Minerals now too…

    Hugs & Cheers!

  • the Muse

    Good morning lovie!

    How are you today?

    Thanks! I look a tad on the goofy side but what the heck!

    I fear I’m a compulsive matcher ๐Ÿ˜‰ hehe!

    Wait till the sale! 20% off wahoo!

    Love ya!

  • the Muse

    Hey Angelique ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Freaking blogger does the same to me hehe!

    Hope you’re feeling good today ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aw thanks sweetie. The purple was loud but I was kinda loving it!

    I LOVE the shu lacquer! Damn I wish they’d do more colors ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m actually medium skin! I find if I stain my lips prior it looks much better. If I apply without a stain it looks kinda clownish ๐Ÿ˜‰

    MAC puts out nice piggies but not such a wide array!!!!! You can order from my pro store and they’ll ship it to you ๐Ÿ˜‰ $7 ups shipping ๐Ÿ™‚ So that’s an option! But hey why do that when you can get these minerals for $2.25! hehe!

    Thanks for your comments! I enjoy ’em!

    Oh my gosh don’t ever apoligize for commenting! I love all of them ๐Ÿ™‚ We have tons to talk about so by all means comment away ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hugs my dear!

  • the Muse

    I hope you took advantage of the sale they are having ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Many thanks for the visit and the comment! I’m flattered that my FOTD made you buy them ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Sminkan/Ann

    Oh, believe me, your FoTD’s will make me buy lots of new make up. I just found your blog and already I find you a source of inspiration!

    I got the discount and I will tell you what I think about the products as soon as I get them. I guess it will take a few weeks.

  • the Muse

    Hello again Sminkan!

    Oh my gosh thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ Utterly flattered that you’ve been inspired my little old me!

  • Ann/Sminkan

    Hi again!

    Got my MAD Mineral pigments yesterday and have tried some of them yesterday and today. They seem very good and easy to work with! Thank you so much for giving me the tip here in your blog! You are amazing! I wish I could put a picture in the comment to show you,, but I can’t. I have a couple of EoTD’s in my blog if you are interested. They aren’t all that interesting though, I have a cold so I am a bit uninspired.

    Thank you again for giving me a lot of good advice and fun reading!

  • the Muse

    Hi Ann!

    YAY! They blend quite well in my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so glad you are pleased!

    You’re most welcome but I didn’t do anything hehehe!

    You can email me the picture if you want and I can feature you on the blog as a guest fotd ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aw sorry to hear about your cold! It sure is the time of the year for flus and colds ๐Ÿ™ feel better soon!
