Below: Simply Karen Mineral Makeup I'll be trying out.
This is the last of my Barry M's from Helen and I'll say it again...I love these! All 5 have covered well in 2 coats and the colors have all been very pigmented. This is a true, bright orange coral, no hint of pink in this one. It's very close to the bottle shade in real life, just a bit darker on the nail. It's one of those polishes that I'll call self-leveling, for lack of a better term. What I mean by this is, as you're applying it, you may see a darker streak or an area that looks like it may not have covered completely. However, when the polish dries, it has evened itself out perfectly. The formula reminds me of many of the Misa polishes.
I'll be trying out some new mineral makeup I received yesterday and I'm very excited about it. I'm always on the hunt for a mineral foundation that matches, looks natural and is easy on the skin, so after doing some Google searching I came across a site called SimplyKaren.com. I sent her an e-mail and a link to a picture of myself and asked her to pick out some shades she thought would work for me. I received the goodies yesterday along with one of the softest, most luxurious brushes I've ever touched. I'll be trying these out and then share my thoughts with you in the upcoming week. I can't comment on the products yet, because I haven't had a chance to use them. But my first impression of the company is wonderful. Karen answered my e-mails promptly and was very kind and informative. She took the time to pick out the shades she thought would work for me, and I appreciate that very much. As many of you know, customer service with many of our suppliers is seriously lacking in many cases, so it's always nice to deal with someone who actually responds!
