Being in the beauty blogging biz for going on three years now, I’ve had the opportunity to see a wide variety of products come and go. Some are memorable, some are not, and then you have inventions that blow your mind by how fantastic they are and why didn’t anyone think of this before?
So it goes with the Minerals Mate mixing trays, which is an idea that is so fabulous that I can”t get over it. Really!
Working with loose mineral makeup can be a challenge – if you need a little extra space to mix colors, add mixing mediums, or just have a little room to play, Minerals Mate is your solution.
Minerals Mate trays are thin, lightweight palettes that will make the lives of ANY mineral makeup user so much easier and at $19.95 they are extremely well priced.
The wells that accomodate your mineral makeup are covered by secure plastic, making it possible to store and transport your minerals. You can even use the wells to dampen your minerals, as I did in this example. No more messy mixing on the back of your hand!
Minerals Mate trays are easy to clean and are dishwasher safe. You can even use the thumb grip to help clean out your brushes!
Looking at the tray – which comes in red damask, black damask, or a basic white variety – it’s obvious that a lot of care and attention was put in to the design. I am extremely impressed by the execution of this idea and my gut tells me that this product is going to seen in makeup kits all around the world.
