I have a love-hate relationship with makeup for the longest time ever. As a teen, you find it fun to doll yourself up but later you also learn how makeup can actually clogged up your pores especially when the invention of BB cream. Ever since I started having breakouts, I didn’t dare to put much makeup on my skin, fearing that I have to go through another round of painful extraction during the facial. Yes, my life was pretty dull.
1) Pressed Mineral Foundation in Perfection
The natural ingredients found in this pressed mineral powder have anti-inflammatory properties and it provides broad-spectrum sun protection. The compact powder comes with a thin sponge but I prefer using a foundation brush to apply the foundation on my skin.
I like to apply it with a foundation brush and though it doesn’t provide much coverage, the reflective minerals in the powder give your skin a nice and even glow.
I actually prefer pressed mineral foundation over liquid foundation because my skin has got really enlarged pores that clogged up very easily. But if you need more coverage, you can use a liquid foundation or concealer from Reflections too.
2) Mineral Eyeshadow in Rose Quartz
Moving on, I’m gonna put on the mineral eyeshadow by Reflections in the colour of Roze Quartz. It is actually a sheer pink colour that has this beautiful shimmer to it. It is stored in this container with this lock mechanism to prevent spillage. All you need to do it so twist it open and dip your eyeshadow brush in it. It is also more hygienic in the sense that all the eyeshadow powder is sealed up.
3) Pressed Mineral Blush in Cherry Blossom
This mineral blush in the shade of cherry blossom is very pigmented and all you need is a little product of it to add some colours to your cheeks. Like the eyeshadow, the blush blends out very easily into the skin. The colour really suits my fair skin tone too. I like to use some pressed foundation powder to blend out the blush colour into my cheeks so that it looks like my skin is looking radiant and pink from within.
4) Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Their liquid eyeliner has a smudge-proof formula and it so super concentrated so you can achieve that perfect winged eyeliner look. You can draw very precise fine lines with the brush is which a little stiff, unlike the usual eyeliner brush which has softer bristles. I wasn’t so used to the stiffness of the bristles at first but I guess it helps to give more precision and control when you are drawing really thin lines across your eyelids.
5) Lip Glaze in Rose Cream
I am glad to say that I felt so much more at ease when I am using their series of organic makeup which can be easily removed from the skin and more importantly, it didn’t worsen my skin condition but provides me with the tools to enhance my features and doll myself up, bringing confidence in myself and the way I look. It’s so true that makeup can empower women to feel more confident about themselves but it would be even better if we are using products that also cares for our environment.
