Like What I’m Wearing? Get It for $5 on Hautelook Before Saturday!

I’ve been getting a lot of people on my Facebook page, raving about the lip color I’m sporting in this photo.



I’ve got news. What you’re seeing in not a lipstick, lip gloss or lip stain. It’s powder. I’ve recently discovered a great cosmetics company call BLEND MINERALS. I stumbled upon the company when they had a flash sale on Hauteook, and I’m so glad I did. The company creates “shimmer pots” that you can use as eye shadow, cheek blush, and lip color. I have over a dozen of these shimmer pots, but the one I’m wearing today is #15.

The regular price for these shimmer pots are $15, and worthy every penny because a little goes such a long way, and it doesn’t go bad. But from now until Saturday morning at 8AM, you can purchase this pot on Hautelook for just $5.

How to use the shimmer powder:

If using as an eyeshadow, you MUST prime, otherwise you’ll have tons of castoff powder. Be prepared to be WOWED, the color shows up intensely. But it’s easily blend-able with a good shadow brush.

To use it as a blush, gently dip two fingers in the pot and carefully dab the apple of your cheek and work upward along the cheekbone. Blend with a blush brush.

For a lip color, use a clear, tacky gloss (any will do) on your lips first and then take a finger and lightly dab some shimmer on your lips until it reaches your desired intensity.
