Giveaway: Everyday Minerals - $41 ARV {6.23; US/Can} CLOSED

This is a joint giveaway with Hobo Mama and Natural Parents Network. You may enter at one site only. Please find the section marked "Win it!" for the mandatory entry and optional bonus entries.

Everyday Minerals is offering our readers a giveaway of their award-winning makeup; specifically, a base ($13), a blush ($6-10), and two eye shadows ($5-$9 each), a total value of up to $41.

Everyday Minerals sells organic, vegan, eco-friendly makeup at an affordable price, and in a variety of colors to flatter every skin tone.

From our reviewer, Lauren B., an NPN volunteer:

Since the birth of my daughter two-and-a-half years ago, I've become a stay-at-home mom and have largely given up on wearing makeup. There was just no need for it on a daily basis, and as I went without, my skin improved and I got used to how I really looked. But recently, I've been wanting to try some light makeup again here and there, and my old stash wasn't cutting it. The Bare Minerals make-up I'd been using, which I'd liked, were now a bit too dark and almost gone; when I looked into ordering more online, I was pretty turned off by the price. I headed to the drugstore to see what sort of natural options there were - very few, as it turns out.

I thought, "what the heck?" and just bought conventional makeup. The Revlon product looked good on, but I could only tolerate it for about 10 minutes before it stung and became uncomfortable. Next I tried an Almay product and that was a lot better, but it still made me a bit tingly and didn't look as nice as the Bare Minerals had. I started looking at the Bare Minerals site again, thinking I'd just have to tolerate the cost, but then this review opportunity appeared and I jumped at it.

Everyday Minerals has just as many color options as Bare Minerals, but with better ingredients and at half the price. I chose the Original Glo Base in Linen as my foundation and after describing my coloring, asked them to choose a complementary blush color for me. They sent Shimmer Blush in Pink Ribbon, which was just perfect. I also received two eye shadows: In the Garden in Pearl, and All Spice in Shimmer.
