All mineral, all natural, all Australian, La Glam cosmetics is one of the few brands out there that can boast 100% all mineral products (except their mascara, due to it being waterproof). I love mineral make up, particularly a quality foundation powder as it is the perfect solution to my general dislike of wearing foundation – it looks and feels natural and doesn’t clog my tempestuous pores.
Mineral Powder Foundation
Definitely a more pleasing product than many of the mineral foundation powders I‘ve come up against, ever since I converted a couple of years back. It’s a good texture – nice density, as opposed to some powders that are so lightweight it is pointless using them. This powder provides good coverage and a nice, overall evening out of the skin tone.
As always, I recommend using a kabuki brush to apply mineral foundation powder – dip it into the powder and tap the bottom of the brush on the palm of your hand to help the powder settle into the brush.
- Bora Bora
The mineral blush is a tad too sparkly for my liking, but that’s not to say it isn’t a quality product. Available in two shades – Sweet Cheeks and Doll Face – I popped Doll Face on the apples of a fair skinned friend of mine and it gave a lovely glow. There’s a hint of purple through the pink, which makes for a nice change in Winter, or for night make up and, as with the foundation, a good density – so a little goes a long way.
Mascara – Blackwater
Not a particularly generous mascara – so if you’re wanting out and out big lashes, then this probably isn’t for you. It does, however, separate the lashes and it’s a nice, rich black; a good, subtle product for day-wear. Note that the mascara isn’t 100% mineral due to chemicals needed to make it waterproof.
