My Experience with the Products -
  • Face Illuminizer  --
This product is my favorite - It comes as a finely milled powder in a screw cap jar. When I inspected the powder for the first time I thought - This is like any other mineral foundation. I remember using this powder on my friend on her engagement day and It worked amazingly !! The product works best as a setting powder. I set the liquid foundation with this powder which gave best results. The powder sets into the skin to give that natural glowy skin look - It is not "glittery" in the sense that the product adds a radiance and soft look to your skin Without adding glitter. The product does not give that shimmery look like highlighters give but a subtle natural glow look upon application. The powder is very finely milled hence one has to be carefully while handling the product - I have lost quite a bit of the powder which flew off because of the wind.


Blended the Powder  - Can you notice the subtle glow ??

All in all this product is a must for all the brides who desire to get that natural glow look on their face during their wedding rituals and during their honeymoon trip. The product is free from irritants, animal by products, dyes or preservatives making it very skin friendly. 

  • Mineral Blush -- 


The mineral blush comes in a small screw cap jar. The color of the blush will suit any Indian Skin tone. It is a deep shade of red. Again this shade will work the best for any festive seasons - It will look gorgeous on Indian Brides. The blush is quite build-able , apply it lightly over your cheekbones everyday to give that soft warm rosy glow on your cheeks or you can build up the shade to give a shimmery deep rose color. The shimmer in the blush is definitely noticeable - When the lights hit the face - the blush will appear as a pearlescent color on your cheeks - Again Perfect for Indian weddings.  

  • Mineral Bronzer --


This is the product if you are looking for a frosty shimmery glow on your face. This mineral bronzer is perfect for warm skin toned girls looking to achieve that sun kissed look. Again the shade is build-able.  This bronzer can double up as a highlighter and also for contouring purposes. 

  • Lip Glaze -- 

 Bordeaux shade is deep maroon with red micro glitters in it. I thought - Here comes a shade which I will never be able to wear but I was proved wrong.  The lip glaze finishes off smooth and gave slight color on my lips with a glossy finish. The color really complements me and I also liked the staying power of the gloss - it lasted me for good three hours which is quite okay. It is not sticky as other lip glosses which I love and also has no odor or taste.

Love it or Chuck it ?
Definitely Love it !! Although availability is the issue .. These products are worth trying out once to experience that nude natural radiant look. 

Please note:The products were sent by the company's PR for consideration.
