Loose Powders - Alima Pure - Satin Finishing Powder

3.0

4 months ago

* 1. Colour match/range - one of the best ranges in mineral foundation. Warm 0 seems a good colour match for me, although I have to say that the olive tones which I should be wearing are just too dark. Why don't they understand that some of us are olive AND pale?
* 2. Lasting power - stays put ALL DAY.
* 3. Overall finish - satin silk.
* 4. Coverage over blemishes/rosacea - …

Concealers - Everyday Minerals - Sunlight colour corrector

5.0

Mar/01/2017

I now have this, the yellow version, for my blemishes, and it has been a complete revelation. No caked up spots because of too much concealer, no redness, no dryness, and once my every day minerals jojoba foundation goes on over the top, all blemishes disappear. I've thrown away all my other concealers!

Powder - Everyday Minerals - Jojoba Base

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/01/2017

* 1. Colour match/range - can't fault it, comparable to alima's range.
* 2. Lasting power - the jojoba Base can move around a little, but with either their Primer or setting powder it stays put ALL DAY.
* 3. Overall finish - I love it, not matte but not shiny; satin silk.
* 4. Coverage over blemishes/rosacea - considering it's the least covering of the three (matte …

This is my last move to going completely organic, and frankly, I wish it had been the very first thing I did!
I used to use a well known brand that uses bicarbonate of soda (which contains amongst other things disodium polyphosphate... Look it up and weep) and I used to suffer from sensitive teeth, mouth ulcers, cold sores on and around my lips, chapped lips and breakouts around my chin …

Concealers - Everyday Minerals - Multi-tasking Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/16/2016

I use this under my eyes over the top of the Everyday Minerals colour corrector in pink, and it is fantastic. It covers really well, is buildable, doesn't cake or gather in the creases or go bitty in the corner, and it lasts all day.
It also covers blemishes fantastically, however, it's a little dark for me for that purpose, but everyday minerals is so affordable I've just …

Sep/16/2016

Oh my I just love this stuff. If you read my other concealer reviews you'll see I have nothing but trouble with covering the dark circles under my eyes, but I have been so impressed with this over the last month I might just chuck my other stuff in the bin!
I bought the pink one and it corrects those purple blue black bruises in the corner of my eye so I can put the Everyday Minerals …

This and one of the blushes is my first tries of the ere perez line and I'm gobsmacked. I love it.
I really wanted kjaer weis's Blush in 'joyful' but being on a tight budget thought I'd better try to find a more affordable alternative. This is it! Kjaer weis blushes are £22 for the 3.5g refill. Ere perez is £16 for a 10g compact! I don't like matte blushes and …

Concealers - 100% Pure - Long lasting concealer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/26/2016

Colour is perfect for my pale neutral/yellow skin during the winter.
As a concealer for blemishes and scars it's not too bad actually. In fact it serves really well as a cream foundation, although it's lasting power isn't great. Okay for popping out to the local shop in the morning, but not for all day wear.
For under the eye and dark circles I found it was no good …

Crème - 100% Pure - Cream foundation

Aug/26/2016

* 1. Colour match /range - surprised to find the shade creme was my perfect winter match. Not sure whether they have a summer match for me cuz I won't be buying again!
2. Lasting power - none existant, ended up looking like a patchy mess after less than an hour.
3. Overall finish - when it first goes on it seriously acentuates dry patches, however, unlike kjaer weis foundation …

Concealers - Za - Zao concealer

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/08/2016

Ivory 491 is perfect for my summer tanned skin, matches vapour 115 quite well, but it won't be any good for my winter skin when I wear my paler foundations (vapour 90 and ZAO 711).
It performs really well over blemishes, and I should know because I've tested it while my skin's been in a really bad state this month. It stays put and has good coverage for the redness, the only …
