Hi girlies, I hope you are all having a nice Saturday! Its a bit grey and windy here - boo! Fingers crossed the expected 'heatwave' comes our way!
So far today ive done some washing, cleaning, but best of all, Bokwa! If youve heard of Zumba, you may have heard of Bokwa - it was created by Paul Mavi, a fitness instructor and dancer from South Africa, and is an intense cardio workout that burns ALOT of calories! It is based on many different 'steps' which each have a letter or number, e.g the X, the O, the B, the list goes on - its SO much fun! Its quite hard to explain unless youve really done it though :/ Heres a video to show you the idea! The instructor will break you in gently and explain it, slowly stepping up the pace! Has anyone else tried this yet??
Aaaaanyhoo, onto the review! Over at Charli's blog, I saw how you could order free samples of Mineral Makeup from a company called LN Girls. Im a newbie to mineral makeup so this was ideal for me.
It is natural and organic, and LN Girls say "Natural Beauty for youthful skin. All skin types LOVE IT! Sensitive, oily, acne and allergic prone skins ADORE IT" which is a plus in my opinion (albeit a little cheesy!)
I hopped on over to http://www.lngirls.co.uk/ and signed up to order my samples, and 3 days later these popped through my door:
I ordered 1 shade of eyeshadow and 2 foundation samples. How cute are the little pots?!
This is Agent X -a light pinky eyeshadow with a hint of shimmer, ideal for a highlight. This one I like and predict I will finish!
Next up, foundation in Cookie.
And lastly, foundation in Bride to Be, lighter than Cookie.

Cookie, Bride to Be, Agent X
The foundation & blushes retail for a bout £12, and the eyshadow for about £8, which seems a little pricey for an eyeshadow in my opinion (for a relatively unknown brand anyway). I would have to say that this hasnt persoanlly converted me to Mineral makeup, but I am glad I got to try it without buying. I found it a little cakey and difficult to work with. Maybe if I had a full size pot i'd be more tempted to persevere with it? I think i'll be sticking with my Bourjois Healthy Mix for now though.
Let me know if you order some samples for yourself & what you order. Ive sent off for a blush too which im hoping I will like more as I have other loose blushes!
Thanks for reading xx
