Star Crushed Minerals review

After using the products (foundation, blush on, eye primer, and eye shadow), here's my thought and review about Star Crushed Minerals.

A. Customer Service
Very good!
Prompt response on my inquiries

B. Shipment
Order made on July 16, 2013.
Package arrived at home on August 24, 2013. 
Usually I receive overseas package within 14 days, but this took longer time. When I messaged Edie on August 18, 2013 to let her know that I haven't received it and asked about racking number, she told me that tracking number is not available due to high cost. She actually covered USD 7.50 out of total shiping cost USD 14 while I only paid the cost USD 6.50.
This was so "generous" of her! Awesome! I was surprised because with the discounted price she gave me, I don't know whether she made profit or not.



C. Price
At this purchase, I would say the price was crazee!
1. Foundations, sample size (2.5 gram jar), USD 4.50 after discount

2. All Natural Handmade Eye Shadow Primer - Eye Shadow Base USD 2.50 after discount

3. Blush On, sample size (1 gram jar) USD 2.50 after discount

4. Eye shadows, sample size (0.5 gram) USD 1.00 each after discount


Total Purchase: USD 32.87 (after discount code)
Shipping USD 6.50

D. Product, packaging, ingredients
I received my products in bubble wrap. The  postal packaging was a square box.
Edie included a thank you note too.

The product packaging for foundation, blush on, and eye shadow has sifter with plastic sticker to cover the holes. 
On the lid we can see the company label.
On the bottom of the jar we find the product name, ingredients, and company information. Click below picture to see close up.

1. Foundation:
I'm glad that Honey was suitable with my skin color.
HONEY: medium skin with neutral undertones

While Sable and Warm Natural were too dark for me. 
These are the description on the store site:
- WARM NATURAL: medium skin with warm undertones
- Sable:  medium to dark skin with cool undertones

The coverage is medium.

2. All Natural Handmade Eye Shadow Primer - Eye Shadow Base

The product color is white with oily texture.

What it said on the store site:Transluscent snow matte finish.
Ingredients: Olive Oil, Carnauba Wax, Organic Coconut Oil, Mango Butter, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Kaolin, Micas
3g jar with 5 g of primer.

It has some kind of glue smell. I wore the make up for around 6 hours, and then I saw creasing of the eye shadow. I have oily lids.

I'm not that keen with this primer.
