I love me some essential oils, and I love me some mineral-based makeup. Tell me I can get both at an awesome price AND a Young Living Essential Oils membership, and I am beyond excited! Today, Young Living Essential Oils began offering the Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit.
How does an essential oil company have a makeup line? Last June, Young Living Essential Oils announced at convention that they had purchased the Savvy Minerals line. Savvy Minerals combines premium formulas with pure ingredients.
So, let’s talk about the Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit, which comes in four shades: Cool No. 2, Warm No. 2, Dark No. 1 and Dark No. 4. For $150, here’s what you get:
- 1 foundation
- 1 blush
- 3 eye shadows
- 1 lip gloss
- misting spray
- foundation brush
- Savvy Minerals by Young Living booklet
- Introduction to Young Living booklet
- 5 ml Lavender essential oil
- Young Living Essential Oils membership
A few months ago, I splurged on some Savvy Minerals (Merry Christmas to me!) and purchased the Veil-Diamond dust, Smashing blush, two eye shadows (Best Kept Secret and Determined), Jet Setter eyeliner, On a Whim lipstick, Abundant lip gloss, and the brush set – all of which is comparable to the mineral-based makeup I’d been using for year, but lighter. Savvy Minerals creates a softer look with a lighter feel. Hello, lover! The vegan-friendly brushes are super soft and provide targeted and full coverage.
A couple of tips on amping up the eyeliner and lipstick/lip gloss. Put a small amount of the eyeliner in the container’s lid and dip the eye shadow brush in a dab of water to apply a strong, yet soft line that stays for hours. The On a Whim lipstick and Abundant lip gloss are a perfect pairing. Apply the lipstick and then add a layer of gloss. Feels wonderful and lasts longer than either the lipstick or gloss on its own. I suspect that the Daydream lipstick and Embrace lip gloss will also be a perfect pairing, which is one of the reasons I’ve purchased the Warm No. 2 Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit.
I also purchased the Warm No. 2 Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit to get some different blush, gloss and eye shadow colors, as well as to try the foundation and misting spray. In all my excitement at ordering Savvy Minerals, I forgot the most basic item – foundation! A little misting spray on your brush helps the foundation go on better and likely is the same with the blush and eye shadows.
In addition to the makeup and Savvy Minerals and Young Living booklets in this Premium Starter Kit, you also get a 5 ml bottle of Lavender essential oil. Lavender is my favorite single essential oil. It’s known as the Swiss Army knife of essential oils because it has so many uses. Makeup-wise, I put a drop of Lavender in my mascara to lengthen and strengthen my lashes and add 8 drops of Lavender to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil for DIY eye makeup remover that easily takes off waterproof mascara. For more uses of Lavender, check out 60 Bottles of Oils on the Wall.
But wait, there’s more: You get a Young Living Essential Oils wholesale membership with the purchase of a Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit. With your membership, you enjoy 24 percent off retail, and to maintain your discount, you only need to make a total of $50 of purchases within a year. The discount is good on all Young Living Essential Oils products. Savings on the Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit, purchased as a member, is about $50, versus purchasing each item separately. Savings purchasing as a member, versus purchasing each item separately at retail, is about $130.
