Minerals Mate-Review & Giveaway

I’m deeply in love with mineral makeup lately. I did a post on the Bare Minerals Get Started Kit I got in February and on hot days and low key days its what I wear. I know its going to be my go-to the hotter it gets this summer. So besides loving the mineral products and how easy they are to wear there is a downside. It’s messy. In fact thats why I stopped using mineral makeup years ago. Who wants all the powder fallout all over their counter? Not me. I am a germaphobe by the way so I freak out over all the little colored powders all over and now I have a solution!

It’s called the Minerals Mate and it’s saved my mineral makeup obsession in a big way. Its a really nice makeup tray that helps me save my mineral “leftovers” and use all my basics (foundation, mineral veil, and blush) as well as my favorite mineral shadows and Mac pigments in one place. With the tops included this is also a portable tray that I can take with me on trips!

I usually don’t take my mineral makeup on trips because its so messy. Not the case anymore. I like the size of the wells that you put the product in. The three large wells are the right size for foundation, mineral veil finishing powder, and blush. They are kind of oversized really but thats great because you can do the tap/buff thing with enough room. And this is all sanitary thank God. I am not a fan of using open products so after I’m done with all my products and putting on my “face” I can close everything up again and not waste anything. Overall this is just right for me with all my issues:)

I encourage you to visit the Minerals Mate website at www.mineralsmate.com. There are two tray types available. I have the Double Platinum Mineral Mate and thats in the pictures for this post. They also make a red one called Red at Play. These trays retail for $19.99 but for blog readers that order in the month of May you can get a 25% off discount if you use the code 2468MineralsMate, say it out loud it rhymes!

I really liked using this and will continue to do so and my counter and the germophobe inside will thank me!

    I have Maybelline’s mineral power foundation and an hd veil from E.L.F. that I love but I barely use because they really do get everywhere and it drives me bananas!

    I stopped using mineral makeup also because of the mess. This would be a great way to try it again.

  3. Hafsah says

    I’d like to try and mix some fine glitteers in this palette! They add the perfect pop for more dramatic looks and it would be great to be able to do it in something other than a plastic plate.

  4. Pernille says

    I have a great bronzer/sun powder which is a mineral powder. It just gives my skin a beutiful glow!

  5. Naznin says

    I have some mineral eyeshadows from avon that I would use, as well as a mac pigment (not sure what the shade is).

  7. Nikole Daniels says

    I’m a fan of Bare Minerals makeup & Mineral Veil in the summer because my skin is so oily you could fry chicken with it during that time. This product would save me hundreds in paper towels which is what i use to catch all the powder messes that occur from use.

  8. CharlotteCL says

    Loose shadows, ive been wanting to try Bare Minerals this would be give me the perfect excuse :)

  9. laura m. says

    I have a ton of bare minerals eye shadows and foundations that I would use in this! What a cool idea!

  10. Melanie says

    I would use this for my everyday minerals makeup that i dont usually touch because it gets messy!

  11. Toni says

    I was obsessed with the BE brand for so many years (since ’98) that I’ve obtained quite a collection…this product is genius :)

  12. says

    I love mineral eye shadows i have some of them but it has been a while i havent use them !maybe i can start using them again winning this nice mate;)

  13. Kristina Sergeyeva says

    I just bought the original mineral veil by bare escentuals amd I want to get the mineral veil in summer bisque. My favorite blush is a powder blush by Micabella in wild rose.

  14. Amoure says

    This is such a neat idea and would definitely save me from stashing my loose products away until I can tolerate them. As you mentioned they just get so messy that you’d just not rather even deal with them. This is a great idea.
