Beauty From The Earth: Matte Sampler & Friends Of Zach PT 1

Oh, that beautiful pink labeled envelope! When I see it in my mail box my day is instantly better because make up = euphoria for me. BFTE is a quality product for a superb price and yesterday this darling was awaiting me when I got home from work.

BFTE has sturdy packaging in their bubble mailers and all products are nicely wrapped in black tissue paper.

This week I had ordered Calypso, which was the Color Of The Week, and Erase The Stigma. I want to take a moment and mention their Beautiful Beneficence line which Erase The Stigma is part of. BFTE carries 2 eye mineral shades to help support Zach'sFriends, who's mission is to raise awareness about suicide & prevention, with 50% of proceeds going to this cause. With each eye mineral shade sold you will also receive a Friend Of Zach bracelet (in coordinating color).

 I personally don't know a single person who hasn't been affected by someones premature and tragic loss. Through awareness, like ZachsFriends, hopefully a life can be saved. That being said - I am a proud supporter and will be purchasing the other mineral shade Zach's Friend this week (swatches to come upon receipt).


Erase The Stigma

Swatch of Erase The Stigma - dry/no primer.
Also inside this lovely mailer was BFTE's 16 piece Matte Mineral Sampler which retails at $29.00 and is a great bargain. The colors included are: Black, Linen, Mississippi Mud, Very Vanilla, Navy, Belle Of The Ball, Panurple, Playful, Sweet Dreams, Main Stage, Grassy, Twisted, Sweet Nibblets, Hangover, Red River & Girl Next Door.

My Fav's: Red River, Main Stage, Navy, Sweet Nibblets, Grassy, Mississippi Mud & Hangover.
Girl Next Door, Sweet Dreams, Main Stage, Playful, Navy, Panurple, Belle Of The Ball, Red River & Very Vanilla - dry/no primer
Black, Twisted, Grassy, Hangover, Sweet Nibblets, Mississippi Mud, Linen & Calypso - dry/no primer.

I am a huge fan of Matte eye shadows. Don't get me wrong, I love the glitter and the glitz, but some of the most dramatic and sultry looks are made with matte's. Matte's blend together flawlessly and can be either tailored for a sweet or vampy look - the possibilities are endless. Each shade available in this collection has the ability to compliment others or to create a bright bold look (see pic below). I truly have no negatives to say about this set.

If you are digging these mattes but not a fan of all the colors, BFTE also sells a sampler for the same price of $29.00, in which you get to pick your 16 samples! So if Mattes aren't your gig but you really want to try BFTE and their sparkly goodness it's a great start!
