J.Lynne Mineral Cosmetics

So I became sample-happy again as I tried another mineral company that has been getting good reviews on mineral makeup boards: J. Lynne. I got the package of samples the following day it had been shipped (less than 48 hours after I ordered online), because their office is only a 3-minute drive from where I live. I like the finish; it's a little dense than what I expected, but that's all good because as far as my experience with mineral makeup is concerned, the more dense the formulation, the longer the staying power. I also tried Bare Escentuals blush in Flowers for the first time, and now I understand why a lot of women are enamored by it. I also tried my green mineral eyeshadows that are slowly becoming staples in my makeup routine.

Hi,

Thanks for the info, I really appreciate it. I recall reading a bit more about this at Girl.com.au... but then again, I could be wrong. But the site’s filled with lots of stuff, great content and weekly comps!
