Mail Day


This is a picture of my purchase from EDM together with other sisses from Girltalk. Thanks Kat (katiztic of GT) for hosting this! I got it today. I got an FO brush and a pressed mineral foundation. The FO brush looks flimsy, unfortunatey, huhu! However, the foundation seems okay. I got the "Fairly Light Golden" shade. Well, as expected, it was more golden than yellow (I'm more yellow than golden). EDM's shades for the pressed mineral foundies are quite limited, but based on the description, this seemed to be the closest match for me. Although it's not an exact match for me, it's pretty close. I have to try it though. It's shimmery from the swatch, I just hope there's not too much shimmer when I apply it on my face. I have to give kudos for the packaging, though. I expected it to be in a plastic compact, as shown from a previous pic from the EDM forums, but it's actually made of recycled cardboard! Yey to being earth-friendly.

That's not all I received today. Recently, iamshallow.wordpress.com held a contest. They were giving a way a Chapstick Ultra and a Cherry Chapstick to the first 5 people to answer the question correctly. Sadly, I was the 6th. BUT I didn't go away empty handed--the 6th to 10th contestants were given a Chapstick Ultra. This is great since I want it more than the Cherry Chapstick anyway since it has SPF 30. Perfect for summer.

Here it is:



I'm sorry that the pic came out blurry for some reason. Anyway, that's all for now!

I'm not sure whose blog it was I read, but I read someone whose brush like that had fallen apart. :( I hope yours works out fine.

Do you know how to avail of the free sample stuff from EDM? Also, how long did it take for you to get your EDM stuff?

Congrats on winning the chapstick! SPF is very important in hot tropical countries haha

wow!
congrats!
that's also what i bought a few days ago...
lucky you!

I,for one, also don't use the pressed powder that i have from EM.
It's too light for me...& i don't do much highlighting either...
Actually i am just able to use it when i do contest entries..haha

I was thinking of getting the foptic brush too...
but since you said its flimsy...i think ill just go with the angled brush...

^_^

I like the pressed foundie hehe. I will try to catch up with gt's next edm spree so I can get this color. I am more golden than yellow so I think your foundi will fit me well. XD

Crystal said...

chrissy, i think i read it somewhere too. i think EDM just gives a freebie during an order. EDM takes long. maybe 3-4 weeks?

blair, i'll update you.

thiamere, i know i saw it on your blog.

Crystal said...

nikki, another brush!

gia, yah if you're golden, this will suit you better.

FuN and MakeUp said...

Kat from GT said...

Glad you got it sis! Sa uulitin ha =) Naku, I haven't tried my edm pressed powder yet, hinihintay kita lol. Balitaan mo ko ha! Hugs!

DeBi said...

wow! i hope you like it cause i think the foptic brush is to soft and the hairs are too long and it did shed two to three strands of hair. did you find a way on how to use it?

Soapaholic said...

Wowwww you won a contest!!! Congrats!!!^^ Haha I never win anything.:P

Ida said...

Pop Champagne said...

oooh duo fibre brush! That's exciting. Keep us posted!

Crystal Gale said...

I saw EDM FO brush on the net and I don't like how it looks and according to the reviews they are too flimsy..that's why I'll just get the Sigma SS 187 instead of this ...I'll wait for your review on this though hehe :)

Crystal said...

jes, yes this is from EDM.

kat, try mo na! hehe.

debi, no i haven't found a way to use it. i think i like the blusche FO pa nga ata better e.

Crystal said...

soapaholic, thank you! haha i've never won a beauty-related contest either.

ida and pop champagne, i will!

gale, i haven't seen a review of the sigma 187 dupe aside from enkore's. nice ba?
