Big haul from Dreamworld Minerals

When the package arrived this week, I was amazed that I didn't realize I bought so many small items. I purchased them in October 2009, getting 35% discount during Halloween sale. Total damage was around USD 87, after discount. So go figure the amount before discount, lol.
The reason why it took so long to get to my place was because Ellie (the owner) had several situations which were tough for her and family.

Now, get back to the order.
http://dreamworldminerals.com has very large variants in terms of colors, formulas, and sizes. Its theme is based on fairy tales. For ladies who will start to try mineral make up, I'd say Dreamworld cosmetics is too complicated. But on the other hand, for ladies who have had experience with mineral make up, this worth trying.



It took me one week to pick up colors which I thought would be the matches for me. Then
I contacted Ellie first to consult the matching colors for my foundation before I made the purchase. I sent her a picture of me so she has a picture of what my skin tone is.
She gave me her suggestions and I followed them.

What I bought:
1. Foundation
2. Primer
3. Color corrector
4. Finishing powder
5. Blush on
6. Eye pigments
7. Lips product

I will try to write the post as organized as possible, as there are many items in this haul.

SIZE of products available:
a. the butterfly - small baggie holding 1.5 gm or 1/2 tsp. of foundation
b. the pixie - 5 gm jar and holds 2 gms of foundation
c. the elf - 10 gm jar
d. the dwarf - 30 gm jar and holds 12 gm of foundation. I didn't buy this size because it was my first order and I didn't want to buy big size at that moment.

See picture below to see the size


FOUNDATION FORMULAS http://dreamworldminerals.com/foundation
There are four main formulas:
SAND: is the medium formula. It is perfect for ladies looking for medium to heavy coverage.

What I bought:
Lada, butterfly size


CLOUD: is the first of the mica free formulas. It is a medium to heavy coverage that is matte and light feeling. It is perfect for ladies who live in the environment where they don’t want anything heavy and for those with oily skin.

What I bought:
Nerthus, pixie size
Lada, butterfly size

MULBERRY: is the second of the mica free foundations. It is perfect for ladies with dry skin, who are looking for something that will not continue to dry them out. Run on the same colour level as the cloud – darker than Luna and Sand.

Carridwyn, pixie size
Brogla, pixie size
