Minerals Mate – the perfect tool and the perfect giveaway

You’ve possibly been seeing a lot lately on beauty blogs about a wonderful tool called Minerals Mate. This is finally being discovered by makeup aficionados and bloggers alike. In April 2011 I introduced you to the original version now called the Muddy Mate. I’ve used mine constantly since that time. Now I’m excited to show you the new and improved Minerals Mate.

Mineral makeup is a huge part of our lexicon now. But sometimes you just don’t want to deal with a mess that it might make. Minerals Mate was created to be the best friend of loose makeup. You put your loose shadows, blush or foundation in the wells and save yourself from mess and spills. It keeps your original product free from contamination too. I also use it as a mixing palette. I showed you my original one recently in a Dan Read review. I had used the well to mix the dark (pressed) eyeshadow with a sealer to create eyeliner. I use it to mix concealer with eye cream to get a creamier consistency too. I love Minerals Mate products for another reason, they are easy to clean. I usually just wash them off with my liquid soap but I can pop them in the top of my dishwasher too.

Molly, the creator, already had a great product when she developed Muddy Mate  but she felt that something was missing. So she created one with removable caps. This way you can save your creations for the next time. I’ve been using my new Mineral Mate tray with the OCC products I’ve been testing (review upcoming). It’s great to hold the eyeshadows and even better to mix Lip Tars. You can snap the lid on and save it for later use. If you are a klutz like me, you also save yourself from spilling disasters. Plus you don’t waste product. I use mine all the time for loose finishing powder.

The new Minerals Mate now comes in two patterns: Red at Play and Double Platinum. Both have three large wells and 4 smaller ones along with the 7 caps.

  5. Rositas says:

  6. I’d use it to mix foundation shades especially in the summer when I get a little darker.

  7. Loredana Macrì says:

    I would use mine for mixing! :)

  8. Minerals mates would be perfect and save me a ton of time. The powder foundation I have right now is in a ziploc bag and it’s such a hassle to dip the brush in the bag, especially because I can’t shake the excess off. I need a mineral mate badly.

  9. Catharine says:

    I don’t have any mineral makeup, but if I won this I would look into finding some.

  10. This ingenious little tray would definitely be a big help in keeping the mess of using loose products to a minimum!

  11. Maegan Morin says:

    It would be a huge timesaver!! I also find that I waste alot and I know that with this I wouldnt at all!!

  12. I am a mineral makeup user so it will save my time and my minerals ^_^

  13. GloriaTea says:

    For mixing my minerals! :)

  14. I have tons of mineral makeup and my gripe has been the messy application. This concept is interesting.

  15. ne-knopka says:

    I would use mine for mixing

  16. Lisa Brown says:

    I could sure use it for mixing. It would be a much neater solution, I am messy!

  17. mary clay says:

    this would help so much because so much of my makeup is in little bags (samples) and lipsticks that are no longer a stick!

  18. It would be very useful, I could try to make some new colors, looks

  19. Sheila Chaffins says:

    Mixing!

  20. It would be very convenient to mix my mineral makeup without making a mess.

  21. I would use mine for mixing and not making such a mess.

  22. Definitely mixing!! thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Having a space to mix and tap the brush is ideal!

  24. Jacca Anderson says:

    I would use this to mix 2 concealers for a better color match for my skin.

  25. It would help me make less of a mess! ;0)

  26. This would be fantastic for my Meow eye shadows, I can tip a bit into a well, use it, and then any that’s left over can be saved! Plus I can use my mineral foundation in it and not lose all that makeup in the corners of the lid.

  27. I could see even using the caps to mix a tiny bit of this or that for one-time use. How handy.

  28. Would make using my mineral makeup so much easier!

  29. The lids will allow me to mix several applications worth at one time, and even the original will allow me to get rid of the small artists palette I’ve been using for *years*!

  30. It would help me not to make mess & allow me to mix some application at once. Coolness!

  31. Jennifer L says:

    Great giveaway!!!!

  32. Lyudmila says:

    For mixing my minerals.

  33. this is amazing! it would totally help me mix custom colors and reduce waste <3
