Dayna's Minerals Part II and Sonia Kashuk 224 Brush Dupe

Sorry for the delay, but here are some FOTDs featuring Dayna's Minerals. This time I used her PN shade, and though it looks a tad too light in the pics, it's my perfect shade when it is viewed in person. So I think I'd wear P3 when I take my pics and PN when I don't. Heh.

In my green look, I used Dayna's Tealy to line my upper and lower lashlines. It is one of the prettiest mineral teals I've seen, and wow was it pigmented! It looks great with and without foiling. I also used a green-brown mineral shadow that Dayna included in the package she sent me, but it doesn't have a name...I love it! I used it as a wash together with my MAC pigments and shadows.





Eyes:
MAC Beige-ing shadestick as base
MAC Moss Scape paint pot on lid
Dayna's green-brown mineral eyeshadow on lid
MAC Juxt eyeshadow inner to mid lid
MAC Night Light pigment on outer V
MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow to highlight and on inner corners
Dayna's Minerals in Tealy to line upper and lower lashline
black mascara

Face:
Camellia Rose Skin Smoothing primer
Dayna's mineral foundation in PN
Mary Kay undereye concealer in Ivory topped with

MAC Emote blush to contour
Dayna's glow in Rose Gold on cheeks

Lips:
MAC lipliner in Whirl
Aromaleigh lipstick in Sheen
MAC 3D glass in Optical

In this pink look, I used the same foundation shade. I used MAC Fresco Rose paint pot underneath the shadows and I just love the over-all effect of my eyeshadows when I use paint pots. Somehow they seem smoother, more polished. The shadows blend like a dream over them, as well. I used MAC's purples and pinks, but made them very subtle for office wear. I also used Meow's Feliner in De-clawed on the lower lashline and I get amazed everytime I use these liners. I believe these are Meow's best products, of course aside from their great foundations. Comparing Meow and Dayna's Minerals is like comparing apples to oranges. DM is a sheerer version of Monave, it has great coverage and finish is impeccable, whereas Meow has the lightest of feel to the skin and has relatively light to medium coverage. I love both and I would wear them depending on my needs.

Finally, here's my great buy for today - Kashuk Tools Blending Brush:



It's funnily shaped like a woman's body, and is twice more expensive than Sonia Kashuk's ordinary line of blending brushes. The hairs' texture is uncannily like MAC's 224 (yes, I compared them), their head circumference is more or less the same as well, and the application is just as great. I just find the odd-shaped handle a little hard to work with (the crook of my finger rests in between the "woman's" neck and breasts); but other than that, this is one great brush. The price is phenomenal, as well.
