Buff'd Cosmetics Mineral Make-up Review

Hi guys! Sorry for the lack of post! I've been busy watching drama, lol~ Anyhow, I'm back~! :3
Today, I'll do a quick review of Buff''d Cosmetics collection in sample size which I received month ago while having my favorite cold tea, yum~♥

About Buff'd Cosmetics:

Now it's time for swatches and review ^^

Buff'd Mineral Foundation Swatches.

The swatches above are heavily applied and roughly blended and was taken with flash on, so it looks whiter and paler than how it originally look irl.  
The average rating of Buff'd mineral foundation on MakeupAlley is 4.2 out of 5, so overall, it's a pretty good foundation. I've never ever owned an actual foundation before, whether liquid or powder, lol. I'm more of a BB cream girl, but I know that foundation would always provide a better result and better coverage, so why not? I'm going to buy an actual foundie, soon. I MUST! >.<

The Neutral-Fair (sample size): is the palest shade of all, it's even paler than MAC NC15 imo. However, I love to use it on my nose bridge and put a highlighter over to create more definition.
Beige-light: has an obvious yellow tone (match to NC20 in MAC).
Neutral-light: A perfect shade for me, though, when applied heavily it tends to give a whitish cast on face. It has a neutral shade, not too pink nor yellow. (NW/NC20)

Using a large fluffy brush is a must when applying this foundation. If you're able to blend-in nicely, it will give a flawless matte finish. The coverage is buildable but not as good as the liquid one.  This product is not recommended for people with dry-wrinkled skin as they tend to accentuate those areas.

Illuminating dust - FLUTTER and Mineral Body Shimmer - Sun Kissed Swatches

Warm shimmering bronze.
Buff'd Mineral Shimmers are formulated using feather-light shimmering micas, adding a radiant sparkle when lightly brushed anywhere on the body.

The BODY SHIMMER is my favorite of all the product!!! It gives a radiant glow on the skin and makes it looks as catchy as ever! Absolutely perfect for party~ :) On the swatches, the 'glitter' looks obvious, but the size of glitters are smaller irl, not a big chunk of glitter though, I'd prefer to consider it as a 'big' and obvious shimmer instead of glitter, (or perhaps a finely milled glitters? lol). 
This can also be used on eyes, to create a glamorous & glittery eye look.

Creamy pink.
Gloriously sheer powders formulated with the lightest iridescent micas that give skin a radiant and luminous glow.

Reminds me to MAC colour powder! It's a perfect mate for buff'd mineral foundation, adding luminous glow and creating dewy finish to fez! Illuminating powder could also be used in place of highlighter, down the bridge of your nose, or on top of your cheekbone to add glow.

Buff'd mineral Blush and eyeshadow swatches

The Satin Pearl Blush in tricky is a peachy pink shade with pearly satin finish. Tbh the shimmer is being too over top for a blusher, we all want a subtle shimmer, no? The color pay-off isn't really good too. The pink/peach tone doesn't really show up well on swatch. The shimmer is really really obvious, makes it suitable for evening make-up only. However, I'd prefer to use it as an illuminating powder instead of blusher, because it works better that way, lol. I really want to try their MATTE blush collection too, read so many good reviews on blogsphere :3

Satin Pearl Eyeshadow - 95 shades available!

Only the finest mineral pigments go into our eye shadows allowing for great wearabilty and stunning colors that will never fade. Buff'd Mineral Eye Shadows can be applied dry for soft color or wet for a more dramatic effect!

Shy: Cool beige with soft silver shimmer
Roland: Shimmering bronzed plum
Cosmic: Dark graphite taupe

I'm loving the eyeshadow! It gives a beautiful SATIN finish~! The color pay-off is good and its soft texture makes it easy to blend. The shade shy is perfect for highlighting and could also be used as a base color because it has a neutral warm beige. Roland is good for defining the crease and coloring the lids, while Cosmic is perfect for creating a dark smoky look and can also be used as an eye-liner (applied wet).


I think Buff'd Cosmetics Mineral Make-up line is really worth to try! If you're curious about the products, you can also buy them in sampler size :)
