I am starting to like these Mineral makeup products more and more. I have been using Tarte's Mineral Powder Bronzer in Hotel Heiress almost daily. Well, that got me digging into my stash and I discovered their Provocateur Mineral Pressed Powder. How did I not know that this was a Mineral Makeup product? And how could I have let this sit so long without giving it a try?
Anyhow - I was in luck to have discovered that I have the shade Veil - a perfect match for my fair complexion.
So there I sat, opened the refill, pulled out the sponge and starting applying the powder to my face - sans mirror. I would swipe and then look at the sponge. Hmmm - where did the product go? Did it disappear? Well - yes, it totally disappeared into my skin - leaving it flawless as it deposited the softest feeling minerals on it. This powder does not stick to the sponge, like most powders. AMAZING! There was a trace of color left behind on the sponge, but just a trace of it. Did I say AMAZING yet?
When I went to the mirror I was so surprised. I had applied my moisturizer hours before, no primer was on my skin, I had no concealer on, nor any other makeup whatsoever. Just this new powder. And suddenly I looked like I had nearly flawless skin. No caked on makeup...no tell tale line of de-markation ...nothing but beautiful skin.
And speaking of beautiful, just how gorgeous is the box and compact that the powder refill slips into? No one would ever know that a pretty little powder were concealed in the box. Again - AMAZING!
The compact alone, with no refills is $20, and the refill alone is $19. It is so worth the splurge. (And you can just always buy the refill and keep it in the plastic clamshell!)
Next up in my newness from Tarte is their The Eraser concealing pen. I will be back with those details soon.
