FOTD + J. Lynne Cosmetics

I received an e-mail in the beginning of the month from Jess, the owner & creator of J.Lynne Cosmetics. J. Lynne Cosmetics is an indie beauty company that offers all-natural, eco-friendly mineral makeup and cosmetics.

She sent me free mineral make-up samples so I could do a testimonial on them and even do a couple of looks for you ladies. I just wanted to show you ladies how amaaaaaazing these colors are.


I did a FOTD using JLC and I [100x] love love love their mineral make-up. The consistency of their eyeshadows/blush is so smooth. It glides on so well when applied wet and it doesn't leave that chunky residue on your eyelids [MAC pigments tend to do that to my eyelids sometimes].
This is actually my first time trying out mineral eyeshadows and after creating this look, I highly suggest that you ladies check out this cosmetics line. The lasting power isn't disappointing either. Regardless that I applied UDPP as my primary base, I think the shadow would've lasted longer even on its own.
I also love the fun names that they use to name their eyeshadows/blush. [Cha Cha, Mambo, Flamenco, etc.]
Colors are vibrant [especially when applied wet]
Long lasting colors
Great consistency
All colors are very versatile [could be applied to eyes or cheeks]
Colors aren't overly shimmery which I love. It has a nice satin finish to it.


None that I can think of.

Since these samples were given to me to do a review, I don't know much about pricing. I can't say what I don't like about it personally, but with the overall product itself, I give it a 5 out of 5! :D
If you have any questions regarding any of their products, check out the website or you can send them a direct e-mail which you can also find on their website. Thanks again Jess!
