Sedona Lace Mineral Makeup Review/Giveaway

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review and giveaway.  I had the chance to test out some new products from Sedona Lace.  They just came out with a set of Mineral Makeup shades that recently launched on their website.  I'm pretty picky when it comes to mineral makeup but these products passed the test!

To see my review and contest details, click here!
Prior to testing out these products, I was happy to work with the company to give them my thoughts on mineral makeup.  I've tested out about a dozen lines or so and have come to know what works and doesn't work.
Check out my video review!


My First Impressions:
Once again, the products came packaged super securely and arrively very quickly.  This is common practice for all Sedona Lace shipments.  The mineral makeup was shrinkwrapped and also comes with a sifter and sticker that seals the sifter.  This is awesome because you know that know one has tampered with the product and you don't have to worry about leaks and spills in transit.  The packaging is pretty basic but I appreciate that the logo is embossed on the lid instead of a cheap sticker.

Testing It Out
The product clearly lists all of the ingredients on the back and also contains spf 15.  I noticed that the texture was very soft and silky.  There are only four shades at this time (fairest, nude, sunny beige, and tan), but I was lucky to be a match for the darkest shade which is tan.  The tan shade had just enough yellow and brown in it to be a nice match.  It applied very smoothly.  I like to use it with a powder brush to set my tinted moisturizer for daily wear.  You can also apply it for heavier coverage with use of a denser brush.  I had no reactions to the product and my skin looked really smooth and polished after application.  If you feel your skin with the makeup on, it really felt like silk.  Check out my video to see the different ways to apply the foundation from light to heavy coverage.

In sum, I was actually impressed to find out how good this product is.  It looked great on and felt silky smooth.  Unfortunately there is a limited shade range available, but stay tuned for new shades to come soon.  The price point is moderately listed at $16.95 for an 8 gram jar.

Definitely use code renren to get $4.00 off your order.  Coupon does not expire.

GIVEAWAY ALERT GIVEAWAY ALERT GIVEAWAY ALERT
The company has decided to generously sponsored a complete set of the mineral makeup to one lucky reader.  Here's how to win!

  • Follow my blog
  • Leave a comment telling me why you'd like to win.
  • I'll announce the winner on my blog at the end of the week.  Follow me on twitter to see when I announce the winner!

LIZ said...

I'd love to win this mineral makeup because I would like to try a more light, less noticeable makeup than that of the usual foundation products. I hear mineral makeup is better for the skin as well. I personally never tried a mineral makeup line so I think it would be great if I were to win this giveaway. Thank you for the giveaway.

I'd love to win because
a) I live in the UK and I'm not sure if they ship internationally?
b) I have genuinely never tried mineral makeup before, so this would be a great chance for me to try it!
Thanks in advance for this opportunity, RenRen. :) x

Arthur said...

Hey Ren, I'd like to win because I'm still pretty new at being a professional makeup artist and foundations (mineral or otherwise) is one of the main parts where I'm severely lacking! This would be a great opportunity for me to practice color matching without feeling like I'm wasting my hard earned money! btw, thanks for the recommendation on which airbrush system to invest in! I can't wait until it gets here.

xoxo

layla said...

Hi Ren! Oooh, lucky no. 13 :) Why I'd like to win? I've never tried Sedona Lace nor mineral makeup before, so why not try both together at the same time right? :) Thanks for the giveaway!

mayraluvschocolate said...

i would love to win!! i too tried many kinds of mineral makeup and they all dont work for me, they either dont have my shade or they dont stay on as long as i would like, there's something always wrong, and I would really love to try this product out and hopefull stay as a customer and help this line grow :) .

Kate said...

I would LOVE to win because I've never tried Sedona Lace, but anything you like I would certainly die to try! I'm very interested in trying it after your video.
Thanks for the giveaway Ren!

fatima said...

i RenRen I would love to win because I never tired mineral make-up before and I would love to get my hands on these pretty colours.

K said...

I would like to win because I am currently building up a makeup collection and really getting into the world of makeup. I've also never tried mineral foundation, and have had TERRIBLE luck with the run of the mill drugstore foundations, i just can't seem to find my color. =(

tousledkitten said...

I'd love to try this for the summer!

bebeluvv said...

i would like to win because, i trust all ur reviews, and i have sensitive skin, regular make up tends to make my skin break out, so i would love to give mineral make up a try. thank you!

Lily said...

i would like to win because i've tried quite a few mineral make up and they all get caught up in my dry skin

ambamalot said...

I want to win because I forgot to go to ulta today for my face makeup and its too expensive so to get this free would be awesome. LOL. Also, I've supported their products for a long time. Especially the bronzer!
Good luck to everyone!

A said...

This MMU sounds like it's perfect for super sensitive skin, which I definitely have! I never knew the tip about wetting the brush, so that's something I'll have to try out!

As for why I'd like to win this, I'd have to say first and foremost my skin is SUPER sensitive to almost everything in makeup. It makes using makeup really hard, but it seems I'm most sensitive to foundations. Right now I use Bare Minerals, but I've found that it can sometimes irritate my rosacea and eczema, so I've been going without. Unfortunately, that means that my face looks terrible, and I don't even want to go in public. I'm hoping to find a new MMU, buttt I don't have a job atm, so it's been kinda hard to get makeup haha. Winning would be awesome, but just knowing there's a new brand out there to try is good too. :)

Sita said...

Cherry Bomb said...

I would like to win because I've yet to find the PERFECT foundation. I have tried several different brands and the only mineral foundation I've worn was Bare Minerals. While I liked it at first, I began to dislike it. I also like being able to have buildable coverage because some days I need to cover up more than others.

Melinda said...

heather716 said...

i would love to win this contest! i have been using bare minerals for over a year now. it works good but i think that there might be something better out there for me to use. i have rosacea so its difficult to find makeup with decent coverage. i would like to see what else is out there as far as mineral makeup.

septgirl16 said...

i would love to win because recently ive been having trouble with acne and ive been trying all different types of makeup im getting so frustrated cause everything keeps on breaking me out. This makeup sounds like it would be good for my skin and i would love to try it! :) p.s. i love how you did tinted moisturizer and then mineral over im going to try that out especially for the hot summer weather!! thanx

Baby, You Love It said...

I'd really really like to win this, mostly because the only mineral make-up I have ever tried was ID Bare Minerals from Ulta and it made me break out SO badly, and I've heard nothing but great things about Sedona Lace Mineral Make-up so I'd loooove to try it out & do reviews on it for everyone :) Plus, I never win anything so it would be pretty huge for me haha.

Thank you!

xxoxo

sugar sugar said...

Great review! :)

I'm following your blog, twitter and youtube channel.


I would like to win because I would like to try out Sedona Lace's products. They've been definitely getting a lot of positive feedbacks and I would like to experience first hand what they're products are like.

You have also mentioned that their foundies have yellow undertones and I'm asian. I find that most foundies aren't suited for people with yellow undertones. :(

Ohhhh... I also love love mineral makeup! <3

vnssa906 said...

I would love to win because I can never find the right foundation for myself. Even getting consulted at Sephora, it's like a headache finding the perfect color, texture and price point. I love Sedona Lace; just won a concealer palette off their FB page, and ordered their 88 matte eyeshadow palette ... hopefully they'll both arrive before the weekend so I can play :) Winning this would just be icing on the cake!

thx Ren!

Hey Ren, I love when you do reviews because you save me lots of money! Instead of buying products that i've never used before and may or may not like I can just check your blog and you pretty much give all the info I need to make a great makeup purchase. I would like to win the sedona lace giveaway because I want to incorporate the application tips you used with the same great product! Thanks for all the great details!!! :) Andrea

Fashion Groupie said...

I Hi ren:

I would love to win the Sedona Lace mineral makeup because as a new makeup artist this product would be perfect for my kit that i am building up. I have recently heard some positive stuff from others ppl who have tried mineral foundation and this product would be a perfect place for me to start. Also after reading your blog about the bride with the problematic skin (extremely Dry skin) I just believe that Sedona would be a perfect product to use just in case I come across a bride with a similiar condition especially because satin and looks flawless on your skin.

Thank You

I definitely know that theres great potential out there somewhere and would love the opportunity to try this brand.
