Winner – Cynthia C!
Back in 2009, I discovered a line of affordable pure mineral makeup called Orglamix. The eyeshadows I tried were like nothing I was used to using – they were far superior. And when I learned that Cheri had mixed them in her humble attic lab, I was even more amazed.
It’s easy for moms to forget about themselves when they’re doing less-than-glamorous daily tasks such as wiping snot-noses, changing dirty diapers and scrubbing crayon off of the walls. I know I skip makeup often, even forgoing it on the weekends.
But I noticed that when I take a few minutes to get pretty, I feel more confident and in turn have a more positive day. And when I’m feeling good, I’m a better mom. So one of my goals going forward is to spend that few extra minutes on my look – not every single day – but a few days per week, for a more confident me.
Orglamix has made it even easier for moms with the new Mom Essentials 14-piece kits, available in light, fair and medium. Each kit includes two foundations, a glow all-over face color, a blush, 3 eye colors and a beauty-on-the-go brush kit. Everything you need is there, already matched to your skin tone and color-coordinated.
I received the medium kit, for skin tones like Jennifer Aniston, Lauren Conrad, Megan Fox and me. I’m pretty loyal to liquid foundation, so I wasn’t so sure about a powder mineral foundation but I was pleasantly surprised. The Orglamix foundations are not like your typical powders, they provide excellent coverage and stay put.
The Beauty-On-The-Go Brush Kit includes a lip/eyeliner brush, eyeshadow smudge brush, powder/blush brush, angled brow/liner brush, eyeshadow blending brush, and a concealer brush. I very impressed with the softness of the bristles and the quality of this set. Plus, it’s the perfect size for traveling or your purse.
All Orglamix mineral cosmetics are formulated without the use of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals and phthalates and all orders comes with these beautiful scented rose petals. It’s always a pleasure to unwrap a package from Cheri!
One lucky girl will win a Mom Essentials kit in her color, value $39.99!
