Lured By Lure Beauty

So I joined other ladies who'd been lured by Lure Beauty in trying out their minerals. Hello, for $1.49, you get four quarter teaspoons of different shades of foundation in sifter jars, not baggies. What more can you ask for? I must concur with other customers who said that Lure Beauty really has very pretty packaging, and I think that is a smart move on the part of the owners. Packaging is really important to me and I more often that not patronize products that have really pretty packaging, especially since online stores have nothing to show (no interior decorating to show off) except their packaging styles. The Lure Beauty jars are enclosed in a pretty paper bag sealed with a sticker bearing the company's logo:



I think I am a Y9, but in the pic I mixed Y9 and Y8 so it was kinda on the lighter side. Again, this is a matte foundation, so if you go for the glowy look, this might not be for you. I live in a very warm climate during summer, and I think the matteness of this suits me to a T, especially since I have a very oily T-zone. I LOVE the Divine shimmer blush! It looks like one of those expensive NARS shimmer blushes that I have, except that this is not $25 but $1.85 for a very generous 1/2 teaspoon sample in a 20g sifter jar! It is very reminiscent of my MAC Fab blush and NARS Outlaw or Oasis. I can't wait to try it out!

Hello jennifer! I think once I get the right shade, I'm getting a FS pot. I like the matte-ness especially where I am right now (it's getting really hot here, hitting the 100s now).
