I'm a tad bit shiny in these pics, I have incredibly oily skin :-/ 

Glow: I really like the Flawless Coverage Mineral Foundation and the shade complimented my complexion really well, it gave me a really natural looking feel. And the best part is that it wasn't heavy at all! The Liquid Pearl Lip Gloss was another favorite, very sparkly and gave me just enough coverage. I also liked the color, it gave my lips a nude look.

Glare: My only gripe which is kinda an in general thing. While I love Mineral Foundation, I've never been really fond of Mineral Eyeshadow and my opinion was really no different with these. Most Mineral Shadows are too sheer & glittery for my liking, while they are pretty to look at I've never had a good experience with them and the fall out & removal process is quite annoying to me.  While I'm sure a good base would keep the shadow in place it's just not my cup of tea. In the photos above, I actually mixed the Mineral Shadows with a more solid Eye Shadow that I already owned.

Would I Recommend It? Definitely, especially the Mineral Foundation!

Overall Glam: I love the fact that Steelo Cosmetics focuses on diverse skin tones, there are so many companies & popular brands out there that don't necessarily cater to women of color. They offer a variety of shades that are not only complimentary but also very fashion forward.

The Flawless Coverage Mineral Foundation is currently retailed at $25, Liquid Pearl Lip Gloss $13 and the Mineral Eye Shimmers are $13.50. To purchase or to learn more about Steelo Cosmetics, please visit their website http://www.steelocosmetics.com .
