I received a package from Afterglow Cosmetics the other day but I haven't tested it yet. I'm waiting until I my skin renews itself after my recent session with laser a couple of days ago. The items that I received are not the actual size of the mineral jars. I chose the smaller, sample sizes that they put together for you. The kit includes two shades of foundation, a blush and a finishing veil. It came in a lovely silver case with a buffer brush and concealer brush. The ingredients are all natural and the brushes are vegan. This makeup is free of Bismuth Oxychloride which is a very popular ingredient in mineral makeup and can make your face feel very itchy. I've heard many complaints about this.
The reason I bought this, apart from the fact that I'm curious and a product junkie was to have a natural, light coverage for summer. The last thing I want to do is put liquid makeup on my face during those hot, muggy, humid days. I do have several shades of MAC Studio Fix Foundation but my skin looks somewhat chalky when I wear it.
I'm a skeptic when it comes to powder or mineral makeup. I've always used foundation in a liquid format and I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the concept that a buffing of minerals is going to last all day. The one thing I hate is touching up my foundation and concealer, once you start doing that its downhill from there. The only exception is when you need to redo your face in a hurry before heading out for the evening.
Although I haven't used this on myself, I did try this out on my mother twice and she loved it. The blush is a beautiful colour. Coincidentally its her perfect shade and I know she's eyeing my new haul. We'll see in a couple of weeks.
