Minerals Mate Review

Let me start this review by saying I didn't not write it!! It was written by a fantastic Make up Artist Faith Haller. This was such a great review I asked if I could use it. Of course you can get yours at Fusion of Color after you read this review you will want one! 

I had the honor of trying out the Minerals Mate Mixing Palette! This is a great way to mix and experiment without messing up anything. It's a great sanitary way to avoid double dipping also! All the things you can do with this:
Flip your lids!
Give yourself room to play with your mineral makeup with a Minerals Mate application palette. Shake what minerals you need into the wells and have at it! The large wells are for your foundations, blushes and all-over treatments; the small wells are for eye colors and special-area minerals. Look, you're an artist (and no more messy lids)!

Mix it up or add shine
Sometimes, that fabulous eye color you got just needs a little tweaking to go with that outfit. Or, you want to add a little sparkle for the night. With a Minerals Mate application palette, you can change your mineral makeup for one use and save the original tones.

Make your own match
Can't find the right shade or coverage from your favorite brand of mineral makeup? Don't despair! Use a Minerals Mate application palette to mix your own shade or texture of foundation for a perfect match. It works great, too, for when you gain or lose that summer tan. You can purchase your own sifter jar, too, for storing your unique shades.

Finally, foil with ease
Foiling is the ever-so-fun art of adding water (or saline solution) to your eye color for that magnificent metallic look. With a Minerals Mate application palette, you can foil only a dab or two of your favorite eye shadows and keep your original tubs of product clean and dry.

Save makeup! Save money!
Ever dump too much makeup into the lid? How well does putting it back into the jar work for you? Use your Minerals Mate palette to store that leftover amount for the next application, slipping it safely and cleanly into its red palette pouch. You can also purchase a larger matching tote bag for storing and carrying your mineral makeup collection and tools.

Add key ingredients
Zinc oxide and sulfur (or sulphur) are just two natural ingredients in many specialty mineral makeup treatments. Using a Minerals Mate application palette, you can carefully sprinkle in these or other raw elements to meet SPF or anti-acne needs. Zinc oxide is used for UVA protection and sulfur is a natural anti-bacterial agent.

Wash your brushes
The thumb rest of your Minerals Mate palette doubles as a brush wash! Just fill it with water and a clean-rinsing shampoo or brush-washing product, and gently swirl your small brushes against the ribbed surface. The larger wells of the palette can be used for washing larger brushes. Our best tip: Wash your palette daily and your brushes weekly.

Be a less messy guest
Traveling? Invited to stay a few nights with a friend? Don't leave a mess on the vanity by spreading your dusty makeup powder all over the place! Just pack a Minerals Mate palette with you on your trip and leave behind you a nice, clean and, of course, beautiful reputation.
