Hi guys, so you probably haven’t even noticed, buuuut if you have, I have actually decided to move my posts to WEDNESDAY’s. This is for a couple of reasons, but mainly because it takes a lot of pressure off of a busy weekend and means I can focus on producing quality content for you, rather than slamming together something willy-nilly to pass the week! Let me know if this works, and check out my post 5 ways to juggle full-time work (and still have time to blog!) if you’re also needing a rejig of your schedule!
This week I wanted to share with you one of my new favourite findings, after a spur of the moment replacement powder shop in Sephora visiting the Champs-Elysees, I thought I’d just go for it and see what I think. It did not disappoint!
This powder is the bareMinerals Original SPF 15 Foundation in Fairly Light, it’s about £26.50 and really worth the price. Can I just say, I’m loving bareMinerals at the moment!
The colour is great and there is actually a good range to choose from, I actually chose a colour I thought would be a bit too pale but it is surprisingly unlike the colour in the pot, so definitely try before you buy! The colour is really warm both on it’s own and setting foundation too. Plus, with the built in SPF, it takes off that oily stress of pre-applying sunscreen, and is great coming up to Summer (or the excuse of Summer in Blighty).
I have a feeling it will last a while as well because it is loose powder and so, you have a bit more control over how much you use with it, so let’s see.
I really like this product for a number of reasons. I’ve been using it as extra coverage for some horrid hormone skin over foundation, which blends perfectly and gives a really strong but light coverage. As well as this, you can also use it on it’s own, and really the choice is yours with the application and how you’d like to use it. This versatility is definitely something that tops my favourite product lists!
It’s super simple to use as well – you just twist the opening, tap some into the lid, and then swirl your brush into the lid until all the product has picked up onto the brush. Then you apply in circular motions, and really a little goes a long way. Plus, once finished you twist the cap back to store it without any spillage – a practical bonus in the packaging that doesn’t go amiss!
I also like it because it really does last all day and create a flawless finish. I struggle to find a ‘good’ powder because I have very combination skin – so far, though I’ve been experiencing dry skin recently, it doesn’t pick up or bunch up in problem areas and actually applies really smoothly which helps to create a soft, flawless glow which lasts! Finally, a powder that my skin likes!
It is also super lightweight, which is something I love in a makeup product because I really hate feeling uncomfortable. Often I find that I actually start rubbing my face thinking there is nothing there and then I’m like ‘shit!’ but it stays put, amazingly!
