I’m so excited to share with you my new Young Living Savvy Minerals Review. I received my new Young Living Savvy Mineral starter kit last week and I finally got time today to break it all open and photograph it all. I was going to just slap it on and call it a day but I thought, why not share my thoughts with you! I have a TON of makeup so I was hesitant to purchase the kit, but the more I thought about it, if I’m trying so hard to weed out all the chemical junk that my family has been using FOREVER, why would I keep applying the same ol’ crud to ma face?!
It was time to change.
I was going to start off with individual pieces, the foundation, eyeshadow or two, and a blush, but by the time I added all those up and realized I could save over $120 by buying the kit. You know this coupon/discount-loving girl couldn’t turn that down.
Alright, let’s get started!
My dear friend Jaclyn (who lent me her kit) had a makeup party a while back and I color matched the Warm 2 color. Being an autumn palette, I knew the warm color would definitely be a better match than a cool-toned foundation. The kit comes with one of their AMAZING foundation brushes for you to use to apply the minerals. Their brushes are SERIOUSLY the softest brushes that I’ve ever used.
Before applying my foundation I did apply my Dermalogica face primer to help it stay in place, but honestly, I don’t know if it needs it and will try it next time without it. I applied the Misting Spray to my brush so it would pick up the minerals better. I still can’t believe how evenly it went on. I do plan on buying the Warm 1 color at some point to use as a highlighter too.
For my eyebrows I used my normal e.l.f eyebrow gel, but will hopefully start using the Multitasker brown eyebrow/eyeliner powder. It should come in tomorrow! ?
The three colors that come with the kit are Best Kept Secret (a beautiful nude matte), Spoiled (a shimmery light pink), and Unscripted (a warm purple matte). I personally am a lover of matte colors so I knew these would look great on my eyes. I do love a little sparkle in my makeup, but only in certain places, and I don’t love my whole eye to be gleaming like a 90s school girl. Being a brunette with brown eyes, purple is ALWAYS a good color for me to wear and I absolutely love how pigmented these colors were when applied with wet brushes. YL hasn’t come out with the widest range of colors yet, but they’re still pretty new to this game.
(I have 5 more colors arriving on my doorstep this week ?)
Since I don’t have the SM bronzer, I used my Hoola by Benefit matte bronzer to contour my face before applying the blush. I have to be honest, I was not thrilled with the “I Do Believe You’re Blushing'” blush when I opened it…it’s SUPER sparkly and I’m not one for a glittery blush, until I tried it on.
HOLY CRAYOLA, it’s the most BEAUTIFUL blush I have ever seen! Yes, it’s sparkly and glittery but it’s SOOOOOOOOO pretty on. I may try layering it with a more matte blush and using this as a pretty pink highlighter on top too.
The kit also comes with one of their sheer lip glosses, Embrace. This was probably my least favorite piece in the kit, only because it was too light for my complexion. While I’m not much of a dark lip kinda girl, I needed a little more color than what this offered. I will probably layer it over a warmer nude-tone lipstick next time. I did, however, purchase their brand new color, Headliner, and I AM STOKED to try it out! It’s a sexy, bright pink color that I know I will LOVE with all my Lilly Pulitzer attire this summer. I also want to try the new bright pink lipsticks too. They look so pretty!
Last but not least, no Young Living Starter Kit is complete without a bottle of oil! So smart of them to include the Holy Grail, the swiss army knife of all oils, Lavender. Loved for its calming, soothing fragrance, it was the perfect addition to this beautiful kit.
