Italy Minerals Review

Itay Mineral Cosmetic
Itay Minerals has a full cosmetic line including everything for the face. The are located in California and their products are made in the USA. The customer service is fabulous. I dealt directly with Rummy and have nothing but great things to say. All of my emails were answered promptly.

I received the 8 stack of shimmers in "Caribbean Samba", 3 stack of shimmers in "Nature Beauty" and 3 shades of mineral foundation. When i opened my package it was love at first sight when i saw this beautiful rainbow stack in front of me. I couldn't resist i had to swatch it right away.

Caribbean Samba is so shimmery its almost metallic. The stackable comes in squared clear acrylic jars that give it a very elegant upscale look. On the bottom of the stackable is the ingredients and collection name. The only thing I noticed I wasn't crazy about is that I don't know what the color names are in the stack as they aren't labeled. However you could easily go to their website and look through the single jars and possibly put 2&2 together.

Nature Beauty stack is a perfect neutral trio. They are also insanely shimmery. Even though I love bright bold colors I'm always drawn to warm earthy colors and tend to wear them more for everyday. The three shades in this stack are perfect for all skin tones. You have the lightest color as a highlight, the medium color is a very unique brown with gold & green shimmer, and the darkest color is a metallic burgundy. The work really well together.

The mineral foundation is really nice to. I am happy I got the three colors though as my original choice was to dark. The foundation is a medium coverage but is buildable to a full coverage. I have acne scarring and redness and i was able to get a nice finish. It does a fabulous job at buffing out fine lines and pores. After playing around with it and since my skin is less than desirable i found it great paired with my normal liquid foundation. For a more full coverage flawless look i like to apply a liquid foundation and use this on top as a setting powder. The two together yield perfect skin results.

Overall I am super happy with the products and would recommend. If you have older or more mature skin I would avoid the shimmers and go with a matte eyeshadow as the intensity of the shimmer stacks will be to much and will enhance your lines and wrinkles. But definitely get the foundations.
