Sheer Miracle Follow-Up

I wanted to follow up on my previous post about Sheer Miracle makeup.

I purchased a sample kit which contains any 4 samples for $9.50 and have now been using it for a couple weeks.  For my samples I chose Mineral foundations in Light Warm and Light Cool and Finishing Powders in Glow and HD.

The Mineral Foundation
The foundation provides excellent sheer coverage and you can easily build the coverage.  I also used it as a concealer by just layering it on thicker in the areas needed and it worked great.  I love the radiant look that it gives my skin.

Now as most of you probably know I am extremely fair skinned which is why I chose the lightest colors available.  However, I wish I had gotten a shade darker.  I feel very washed out and have to layer bronzer to make me not look like a ghost.  So I recommend when first trying this to purchase two different shade levels.

Finishing Powders
I absolutely love the HD finishing powder; I think it is my favorite of the samples.  Not only does it give my face a flawless look but it feels amazing too.  My face feels super smooth after applying it.

The finishing powder in Glow I am not a huge fan of.  I chose glow over the matte because I like that dewy look every once in awhile but I feel that glow should be called shimmer instead.  It really is too heavy of a sparkle for my taste.  It will make a nice highlighter on my cheek bones so it won't go to waste.

Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase.  When comparing Sheer Miracle to other mineral foundations that I have tried I am impressed.  It seems to take less product for each application so maybe that means it is a little more concentrated and it gives great results.  I won't sit here and say that it is the only makeup that I will use because I still feel like there is something missing but it could just be me the perfectionist.

If you are interested in trying Sheer Miracle they have an offer you can't pass up.  Write a post in your blog, on your Facebook, or twitter about them, send them the link and they will give you a $10 credit towards your next purchase.  You can find more about this offer on there website.

Happy shopping!  I would love to hear what anyone else thinks about the product as well.

One of those days

We all have them.  The days that for no particular reason we just aren't ourselves, nothing goes our way and you feel sorry for yourself.  Those days tend to come and go and not only is it dreadful to go through but even worse to drag others along with you.

I am going on a week of "those" days and I just can't seem to pull myself out of this rut.  I have no reason to feel this way.  All is well on the home front and I am starting to see little Jameson's cute personality come out but yet something just keeps nagging at my emotions.  Zack keeps asking me what is wrong and I am afraid he thinks I am hiding something but honest and truly when I say " I don't know"  I really don't know.  I think I am dragging him down with me.

Maybe it is hormonal?  My hormones have played a role in many mood swings over the last year.  What ever it is I just want it to end!  I am tired of feeling sorry for myself for no reason at all hopefully things start to turn around soon.

Anyways, just a little rant...thanks for listening :)
