Everyday Minerals haul from June (been lazy recently)

Since now we cannot make big EDM hauls anymore (due to customs, VAT etc) one has to order when some other one happens to visit US. This haul contained mostly brushes and only two items were actually mine :D (time to learn some restraint). Used the opportunity to get the free EDM foundation sample set in Light too (they should rename it - foundation set "yellow" would be more appropriate).

Colors in this kit were:
Buff Light Neutral matte
Golden Light semi-matte
Golden Winged Butter o-glo and
Cool Fair Medium intensive.

I also added swatches of two lightest Lily Lolo (UK MMU brand) testers: Blondie and Warm Peach. Franky - I preferred the slightly orange looking Warm Peach on my face, Blondie seemed to yellow. I liked the texture, it seems creamy and the powder tries to gather in tiny balls, more condensed, heavier consistency, not fluffy at all. Gives a nice matte finish, offers medium coverage.

On this pic I added all my full size EDM foundations, just for comparison (small testers from left to right in the same order as listed above):
Here's an overview of brushes - tried out the new dome shaped blusher (fourth from the left) and I'm still in between, it seems too dense and I am very likely to apply colors much too heavily. Needs a very light hand. I also added the long-handled kabuki I bought two years ago to this photoshoot (second from left, pale handle), freshly washed it looks just like it's brand new sister.

From left to right: flat top kabuki, old long handled kabuki, new long handled kabuki, blush brush, eyeshadow brush, concealer brush, smudge brush, foundation brush, angled liner brush, angled blending brush, eye kabuki, domed blending brush, baby eye kabuki.

Definite must haves from this lot are the LHK, FTK, angled blending brush, eyeshadow-concealer brush and smudge brush. Small eye buki is also worth having, big eye buki is good for under the eyes. Whatever you do, do not get the dome blending brush - it's absolutely worthless. Since the big foundation brush nor the angled liner brush were for me and I did not test them- can't comment those.

See EDMi tellimus tuli Eestisse juuni lõpus koos Ameerikamaale reisinud sõbraga, tegime koos suure tellimuse ja saime 45% alla (kui on üle 12 nimetuse, annab EDM ostukorvist 45% alet, toll aga võtab pärast 20% käibemaksu). Peamiselt võtsime seekord pintsleid ning mina sain endale Olive Fair o-glo täissuuruse, suure põsepunapintsli ning EDMi Light founditestrite komplekti. Pintslid on EDMist tellides hea hinna-kvaliteedi suhtega ja soovitan soojalt. Ideaalne oleks suured pintslid ELFi Studio seeriast (odavam kui EDM) ning väiksemad silmapintslid EDMilt. EDMi pintslid tunduvad mulle ELFi omadest siiski kvaliteetsemad, nonde plussiks jällegi on hind ja mugav pikk käepide, ei upu pintslitopsi ära.

The free items were a Happyness bronzer and a Weeping Willow eyeliner - neither of them something I liked and both found better, caring homes.
