S. continues to review her collection: EDM, Dermoshop, Philosophy

This is me using other ppl's personal experiences in my blog, again.
S. continues her series by commenting on the rest of the products she has tried.

Philosophy puuder on saadud paar aastat tagasi ja pole tegelikult Eestis müügil.

I got Philosphy's powder a couple of years ago. I don't like Philosophy's Supernatural 4-in-1 mineral makeup at all. It's too yellowish and too heavy for my skin and it caused me some skin problems (itchiness and break outs). It contains bismuth and parabens. Maybe they've changed their consistence for now, but this one that I got, has scary so-called other ingredients' list.

Information from package:
Active ingredients: zinc oxide(5,196%) Other ingredients: bismuth oxychloride, mica, titanium diocide, iron oxides, silica, triethoxycaprylylsilane, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, isobutylparaben. And last but not least - this product is too expensive as well.

Dermoshop/Dermosil is a North-European cosmetic brand from Finland and it is one of my favourite skincare brands. I like their mineral make up products as well. Negative side is really narrow or even non-existent selection of colors - they have only two foundation shades. Dermoshop mineral powder in darker shade is quite nice, especially in summer, when I've tanned. But again- it's a little bit yellow or too dark for me at the moment. I haven't tried their new lighter powder yet but I definitely will. I suppose that mix of these two Dermosil powders could be a good match for my skintone in wintertime and in early springtime. Dermosil powder is in my opinion really lightweight and haven't caused me any skin problems.
Active ingredients:
Kaolin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Bisabolol +/-(might contain? other ingredients): MICA, CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 7749 Kaolin content products are really good for my skin.

I must say, that Dermosil mineral blusher and eyeshadows are discontinued for nowadays, but I'll say some words about these products anyway. Dermosil blusher is really beautiful shimmering rosy color in the jar, but on my face it transforms into peachy. It's actually my overall problem with mineral blushes - I want pink cheeks, but what I get is peachy or even worse - orange cheeks. Eyeshadows are nice colors for everyday use, but in my opinion - not so good quality as for example EDM or PureLuxe.

I also have Dermoshop's kabuki brush- I was quite pleased with it until I got EDM brushes. Compaired with EDM brushes - DS's one is scratchy and rough, but definitely better than some so-called mineral make up brushes sold in stores.

EDM eyeshadows: My favourites are Cypress and Dandelions. Cypress is awsome silver-greenish color for everyday eye make-up. Dandelions are bright shimmering white and it's great for highlighting (for example inner corner of the eye or under the brow). Mystic Night is really mysterious deep dark lilac shade and as the name says- it's more suitable to make evening/night make-up for special occasions or clubbing tour. In my opinion.
I really like EDM eyeshadows- they are long lasting and quite easy to work with (easier than PureLuxe pigments or Dermosil powdershadows). I already added some other EDM eyeshadows to my wishlist (In The Garden for example).
About Snuggle blush. Product information on the website says: it's a radiant pink with flattering peachy undertones and it should be suitable for any skin tone. But... It is not right for me- it's not pink at all on my cheeks, it's more peachy or rather orange on my skin tone. Disappointing. :(

(Liis: I have the same problem - ppl sell stuff that's not pink at all, i.e. MAD Minerals Just Pink - actually totally beige on me)

Vabandust, et nii julmalt võõrasse blogisse kommenteerin, aga kas Lumiere asju oled proovinud? ( Neil on tihti häid soodukaid ja näiteks nende 20 lauvärvi 24.99$ eest on niigi hea pakkumine. Ka mul lähevad nt EDM blushid kõik oranžikaks, aga Lumiere paar siiani proovitut tunduvad selle koha pealt paremad. Värvide valik on päris hea ja 5 tootega sample baggie maksab 0.01$. Saatekulu oli odavam kui EDMil. Väga lahe on nende puhul, et igast tootest on swatchid nii märjalt kui kuivalt.

Lumiere't pole proovinud - küll aga olen palju lugenud nende pre-buy pintslitest. MakeupTalkis on ka nende foundide andunud fänne. Ma ise pole seda proovinud sest full size'd on kallimad kui EDMil.
Kui Sul aega, siis palun kirjuta paar rida ja lisa mõned pildid, ma riputaks Su kommentaarid-arvamused ka hea meelega üles :)
