Has anyone tried their makeup? What do you think? Particularly of the concealer and foundations? I want to try it but it's a lot of money for something that I have no idea will match my skin tone or not or even close, since I can only get it online.

They only have 4 shades of each and it's really hard to tell what the color is online in the little photos.

Yes, I have used their foundation. I purchased Dark, but it isn't really that dark. I normally use Jane Iredale in Radiant or Satin, if that helps.
The nice thing about this product is that it's organic and uses Zinc Oxide, whcih I really like. The drawback is you can't get samples, and they don't state what their SPF is, which is why I stopped using it.
BTW - Their products tend to have more of a pinkish, as opposed to yellowish, hue.

Thanks. That's not good that they have a pinkish hue cause my skin is very yellow/olive. Hmmmmm. I'm still searching for samples online from someone. Found a sample of the Almond but not the lighter shades. I've never really worn foundation before except when I tried it out when I was a teen. I remember going into the department store and they custom blended a color for me. This 3-4 shades fits all thing is not really going to work unless you get lucky. I wanted to try burts bees concealer but I tried it in the store and they only have 2 shades. One that is way too light and one that is way too dark for me. Even Jane Iredale which is what I use now has the circle delete thing with 2 shades. One of them matches almost perfect and the other is way too light even mixed, so it always goes to waste. I use up one side and then am stuck with the other...

I thought you could actually purchase sample sizes of most of their products on their main website www.onegrp.com

Unless things have changed on their site since I purchased from them, which was probably 3 months or so ago, they don't offer samples.

But I could be wrong - maybe that has changed.

What I did was actually purchase two colors and then I returned the one I didn't like.

I've used the powder mineral foundation & I thought it was pretty good initially but now I don't think it's that great, the coverage is way too sheer for me & I'm not a big fan of the rose scent either. Confused The blushes are quite nice though. Smile

I think it's great when you can order samples as it would be hard to get the right colour for your skin without trying on a few.

There's another thread about their foundation here:

http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=19727&highlight=miessence

And about other products in general here:

Overall, we weren't impressed!

Does anyone know which site I can purchase their products (beside their official one)?

I love their blush but hate their liquid foundation. It's the worst ever in terms of texture and colour. i threw the whole bottle away.
