I always knew it was only a matter of time before I started using natural makeup. The only problem was finding a reputable brand that I could trust. Then I came across Alexami Mineral Cosmetics - proudly Australian owned with a mission to create irritant-free beauty products that are safe to use. Lucky for me, I was given the pleasure of trialing some of their products recently.
Perfect Puff Minerals Foundation, as it was for me, the most outstanding product. For years, I've avoided loose powder foundations because 1. They are messy. 2. They don't provide enough coverage. 3. They are drying and don't suit my dehydrated skin.
This loose mineral powder foundation not only debunked all of my preconceptions, it also functions as a concealer, finishing powder and offers natural high sun protection! The easy use powder puff provided easy application without the mess and allows for layering product on for more coverage, if required. Skin looks soft and radiant and feels incredible - non of that tight, I'm-wearing-powdered-foundation feeling.
Perfect Puff Mineral Blush, which is quick and easy to apply and compact enough to fit into my handbag for handy touch ups throughout the day. The puff application makes it easy to blend without being messy. And the coral pink shade is SO perfect and pretty and provides a natural pink flush to my face.
I also got to trial Alexami's range of loose Mineral Eye Shadow pots in Chestnut and Soft peach. I'm glad I got these colors because they're so pretty and lends a nice shimmer to the eyes and both colors look so great together. The only problem is the first couple of times I used them, I found them quite messy to use. With a little practice (plus with tissue under the eyes), I found it was no longer a issue. On a side note, I used Alexami's angle brush and shader brush - part of their Vegan makeup brush set for my eye make up application. The angle brush was excellent for lining under the eyes with the darker Chestnut shade and the shader brush for blending both colors together (blended really well, by the way).
