Day 1: 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - Ancient Stones Nurturing Naturals Gorgeous Mineral Make-up Giveaway!


I'm a girly girl, even though I wear pants most of the time. I love anything that sparkles, smells nice, and is fun to put on. One of my favorite things to do when I'm bored... put on make-up! Why didn't anyone ever mention to me while growing up, to become a make-up artist? I love applying make-up to myself, as well as others. Oh well, it's a hobby, and a fun hobby it is. I recently came across the make-up Ancient Stones Nurturing Naturals, and I have to say I'm quite impressed. They are a natural mineral based type of make-up, and are available around the world.



Ancient Stones Nurturing Naturals is proud to present an amazing breakthrough in all Natural Mineral Makeup that uses only pure colors from earth's natural mineral source and they have no additives, fillers, preservatives or talc in their makeup. Their all natural mineral makeup enhances your skin tone while allowing your natural radiance to shine through. The Makeup gives a vibrant youthful look and feel to the skin. This all natural mineral makeup is so thin, that it allows the application of multiple layers, for complete coverage, without giving a heavy appearance to the skin. One of the main ingredients in their loose mineral foundation is Titanium Dioxide. This naturally occurring mineral effectively blocks all UV rays. If you have sensitive skin, and have had bad experiences with cosmetics in the past, then their all natural mineral makeup is for you. Remember their products are free of talc, dye and perfumes, so when they say all natural, they really mean all natural.

I was sent their Large Starter Kit which includes: Foundation, Blush,
Concealer or Magic Matte, 2 oz Ancient Elixir©, Free Brush, Either 2 Eye Shadows or 2 Lip Creme's or any combination for a total of 2 items - for example 1 Eye Shadow and 1 Lip Creme. The items in this kit would normally retail at over $178, if you were to purchase each item separate. The kit retails for $130, and can be customized to your liking.


In the kit the items that I was actually sent were: Perfect Beige Foundation, Embarrassing Blush, Butter ream Eye Shadow, 1 oz. Ancient Efixir, Super Soft Focus, and a make-up brush. Each item was nicely packaged, showing that they were brand new, never used. Each nicely labeled so you know what they were, box was lined with pretty yellow tissue paper, and included was a little note stating instructions along with the products listed. Excellent presentation when it comes to packaging, and it was packaged well enough so that the make-up didn't arrive damaged or glitter everywhere.


The make-up feels wonderful on, and a little bit goes a long way. I love the blush that I received, it's natural, yet has a sparkly glam to it, and I LOVE the eye shadows... the hues are gorgeous. The picture of me doesn't do the make-up justice, and you can barely see my eyes behind my glasses. The make-up that was sent were all natural looking, so it doesn't look like a clown drew on me!

They offer other kits that you may be intererested in purchasing: Eye Shadow Set with Ancient Elixir, Eye Shadow Special Offer, Exclusive Offer - Deluxe Pack. Click here to visit and purchase their products!
