Like I told few posts back I got a package from BFTE - I ordered a Limited Blogger Set in matte (all sold out so sorry if you missed it). Which meant I got 3 matte colours in jars and 3 sample bags of other colours.
To my luck I got matte colours that I really like: 2 browns and a pink. Well pink isn't really my colour-of-choice but I'm really glad I got the browns since I probably will never have enough matte browns. Like you might've noticed I've use quite a lot of matte colours lately.
These are swatches of the matte colours:
(L-R: Not That Innocent, Aruba and Truffle)
Above picture is taken in daylight and lower with flash so that's why it looks a bit washed out. If you see sparkles it's not the colours - it's the primer (Malu Wilz).
Not That Innocent: (BFTE site has no description for it and it looks more lilac in the pictures) but I think it's quite light pink with possibly a slight lilac-y undertone
Aruba: (BFTE site says only matte but) I see it as light brown with a bit of a peachy undertone
Truffle: (From BFTE site:) A golden medium matte brown. Whether you prefer the chocolate or mushroom variety, this truffle is calorie free, so feel free to indulge!
I love how smoothly the matte ones apply! If you haven't noticed I've used all of them in looks already which you can find here and here. I will definitely need more of these. BFTE has a lot of matte shades so I will have more likely problems narrowing them down than finding colours I want.
The three random samples I got were:
(L-R: Bubbly, Paradise and Stunning)
Today's look was done with Bubbly and Paradise (Stunning I haven't used yet). Bubbly and Paradise both have nice sheen to them. It's not really shimmery or glittery but smooth sheen. Stunning seems to have less sheen and I tried to take picture where you can see it but camera didn't want to capture it. It's not matte but the sheen/shimmer isn't as prominent as in two other colours.
Bubbly: (BFTE site has no description) I see it as champagne colour (like you might get from the name)
Paradise: (BFTE site has no description but says it's not safe to use on lips due to ultramarines) I think it's sky-blue with nice sheen
Stunning: (BFTE site has no description) hard to described since I have only swatched it but I think it leans a bit more to berry-colour than actual pink/fuchsia, subtle sheen
Colour pay-off is amazing in these! I had no problem with Bubbly and Paradise which I used either, consistency of the colours seem fine. I might have to get bigger size of Bubbly since I love how it would add bit of pizzazz (I quite hate that word but couldn't come up with a better one) into neutral looks.
Will I buy again from Beauty From The Earth? Definitely, like I said already! It says on the site that BFTE have over 350 multi-use minerals and a really good variety of matte colours which is what I'm more interested in atm. I think I need matte greys next...
