i wanted to give my skin a breather and allow it to recover and i thought what better than to replace my foundation with just powder. i would've gone bare faced but I'm just not brave enough >.<. that's when i thought of trying my first ever BareMinerals product since there suppose to be generous on the skin.
i went in to John Lewis and purchased this for £18 and i was told the illuminating one will give a glow to the face. However due to my was naivety, i wasted money once again! (we learn from mistakes right? well only thing is i make TOO many of them!) i came home to realise the powder doesn't give a natural type of glow but a glittery one.
|This is how it looks under natural room light. Nice and dewy right?|
Don't be fooled. This is what it looks like under artificial light, this is probably what it looks like under direct sunlight but I'm afraid i cant test that. the weather hasn't been so lovely here in the UK.
|You can clearly see the shimmers as opposed to the first pic i uploaded of the pot under normal light.|
this is what it looks like under artificial light. i know the camera hasn't quite picked it up but it looks glittery rather than shimmery and glowy.
I'm not saying this is a bad powder but its just not my preference. i do love the dewy look but i would hate to have obvious glitter all across face, in my eyes that is unflattering.
