Dusty Girls Gift Set

I believe this is now my third post about the #ShropshireBloggerMeet, and I’ve still got 2 more to go. But Kirsty did such a good job with all of the raffle prizes and goody bags that I couldn’t help but to write about all of them! You can read about the meet here and my Library of Fragrance raffle prize here.

As you are probably aware, I entered the raffle and won two prizes, the first being the Library of Fragrance colognes and the second being this Dusty Girls* Gift Set.

How cute is the tin bucket though? This is definitely taking pride place in my room for little bits that I need to keep track of!

Anyway, in my gift set I got “Sunshine” Natural Bronzer, “Pacific Shimmer” Natural Mineral Shimmering Lip Gloss and “Argyle Pink” Natural Mineral Lip Shine.

The great thing about all of these products is that I don’t have anything like them already! I only really use blusher, so using bronzer in the summer is going to be new for me! And I only use lip balms which I carry around in my bag so it’s going to be a change to use a lip gloss or lip shine for when I go out!

Dusty Girls was founded by the same people who founded MooGoo Skincare. MooGoo was founded when the founder adapted a cream to help a family member with a skin problem they had. The cream was full of skin repair ingredients and none of the bad artificial stuff! It grew as family and friends used the cream and MooGoo was born! Which obviously led on to Dusty Girls being made as well. They formed their makeup on the basis that your skin always looks great after a day in the countryside, “a bit dusty” but the colour and tone is on point! So they used the clays and minerals of the Earth to help improve our skin tone without any of the nasties. Also in their manifesto, “What is our number one beauty tip? Smile”. This made me smile, purely because of how true it is!

I didn’t know too much about the brand and products when I first got the prize, but I am completely won over now! The concept behind the brand is great and I’m so tempted by the MooGoo products as I have sensitive skin which is acne prone so it would be great to try some of their products!

“Pacific Ocean Shimmer” Natural Mineral Shimmering Lip Gloss

This reminds me of something I would have used about 10 years ago but this is definitely a more grown up version and it’s got a little bit more pigment to it. I was worried it would be silver but it’s more of a peach coloured shimmer which is so pretty! I’ll definitely be using this when I wear blusher, so I’m not too heavy on the pink!

“Argyle Pink” Natural Mineral Lip Shine

This is so pretty! I wasn’t sure how this was going to come, I thought it would be applied with a brush but it actually came in the form of a stick, similar to lipstick. When I first opened it, I thought it was really dark and there was no way I could wear something like that. But as I tested it on my hand, it came out quite thin and a lovely pink colour! I’ll be wearing this with the bronzer so there’s a bit more colour on my face!

“Sunshine” Natural Mineral Bronzer

I’m SO excited to use this. I’ve never owned a bronzer before which is a little bit daunting but it comes with directions printed in the box which I think is so cute! It also means I won’t look ridiculous because I’ll know I’ve applied it correctly!

This is such a great gift set and I’m so glad that I picked it. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, I’ll be uploading some beaut selfies wearing this makeup so you can see what it’s really like!

  1. Aww your goodies look lovely.

    I'm REALLY impressed with the pink mineral eye-shadow that I have of theirs. It's such a lovely earthy colour which I'm glad as I'm not a pink person. I love how natural and minimal their website is. I'm just testing out their skin care at the moment.

    Nice post!
