Ooo La La!

Perfect Pearl Primer

I've been wanting to make a primer for a while, since many have requested one! Although you can use my Mineral Glow Veil as a primer as well, some with very dry sensitive skin may find it too drying. This new primer is the perfect solution! It is a luxurious blend of Silk and Pearls, which both aid in rejuvenating your skin, controlling shine and minimizing imperfections. I now use this product under my foundation during the day and also at night before bed as a skin care treatment. My skin has never been softer!!!

In addition to this amazing new primer, I also created a new foundation formula! Moisture Max Foundation is especially tailored to those with dry sensitive skin. It does not contain any of the ingredients that some may find too drying, like silica or kaolin clay. Instead it has a luscious creamy feel to it and gives a gorgeous youthful appearance to dry skin! I have dry skin myself and really love this foundation. And, the best part is, I was able to make all the same shades as the Mineral Silk Foundation!! So if you need a more moisturizing foundation it will be easy to transition to this new formula!

I am really excited to offer you these new products! I hope you love them as much as I do ;) ~Lucy

Staying in Business

I wanted to let everyone know about some changes in my shop and the reasons behind them. Although these changes have been in affect for a while, I am just letting everyone know officially.

First change, I will not be giving out any free samples to beauty gurus, youtubers, or bloggers. It is not that I do not appreciate those of you who have done reviews for me; I think you all are fabulous and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! It is just that most of those I have sent free samples to have never done any review for me, they have simply taken freebies and I have gotten nothing in return. So, those scammers have left me very skeptical and I will not send out freebies to anyone, period. I will also not respond to your convos on Etsy, because I get entirely too many every day to spend time answering all of you.

Second change, I will only include freebies in orders over $50. When I first started up my business I included free samples with every order. As time has progressed I have realized that I do not have the time or resources to continue giving away so many freebies. Also, many times I just have no idea what to give as a freebie! Free samples still cost me money, and time, which cuts into my ability to provide reasonable prices and excellent service. I would rather get your order out to you fast and keep my prices low!

The main reason behind these changes is that I have to stay in business. The whole reason I run this business is to help provide for my kids, it’s not a hobby for me. If I don’t turn a profit, I won’t stay in business. My family relies on the money I make to pay for many things each month. So, as much as I would LOVE to give free samples to everyone, I have to control myself ;)

Starting today I WILL include a sample item with each order over $50! Each month I will choose an item that will be included with these orders. May’s item will be a FREE Cherry Vanilla Lip Balm with every order over $50!!

Many blessings to all of you! And thank you so much for your business! I truly have the most fabulous customers in the world!! ~Lucy

It's Sunscreen Honey!!

Acai Berry Anti-Oxidant Sunscreen Lotion

It is here!! Listed and ready to order! Just in time for Summer! Yay!! Damage from the sun ages you so much, prevent the damage with this anti-oxidant rich sunscreen lotion! I'm seriously in love with this stuff. Before I made this I can not say I used sunscreen every day :( I did (and still do) use my mineral makeup on my face, but my arms, hands and anything else not covered by clothing were exposed too much to the suns damaging rays. Store bought chemical based sunscreens burnt my sensitive skin, so I never used them. This stuff is so light and not sticky or smelly like other sunscreens, so it does not bother me to wear it. I am proud to say that now that I created this stuff I happily wear it every day, even under my makeup as my day time facial lotion. :D And I slather it on my kids too, they don't mind at all! Yay! ~Lucy

PS. I also have a new Coral Bliss Lip Tint in my shop, another thing I've been wearing every day since I made it ;)
