English Mineral Makeup Company

Mineral makeup is not something I use very much of and know very little about. English Mineral Makeup Company is founded on the belief that you and your skin deserve the very best and with that comes a brand free of chemicals which uses only the best 100% natural mineral ingredients to create the products.

I was kindly sent this beautiful box which features three face products which are all packaged inside their own pot and one of the softest brushes I think I have ever used. The large pink Kabuki brush is one you most definitely can't miss owing to its bright pink bristles and wooden bottom. Created from Talkon fibre and Bamboo, this Large Kabuki is also vegan and perfect for swirling around your powders.

The product which intrigued me the most from my trio of powders is Fairy Godmother and it is described as being a Primer, Fixer, Illuminator and Night Moisture Treatment. The first three I understand and would have expected to find somewhere within the description.  As a multipurpose powder, it contains millions of microscopic prisms which reflect light and give the appearance of fewer wrinkles and fine lines.  Despite being a powder, Fairy Godmother contains Jojoba Oil.  It can be used as a primer before you apply your foundation, BB Cream or tinted moisturises, you can also use blend it with your foundation to give that dewy look, you can use it as a highlighter or as a powder over the top of your makeup but the most interesting of all and something I haven't yet tried is that at night, you can use it as a moisturiser.  

When it comes to using Blush, I like something less pink and more rose because it seems to work better with my pale complexion.  Within this collection, I have the shade Rose which has a satin finish and what I really like about it is that you can apply a minimal amount to give a subtle hint of colour, or you can really build it and make it pop. 

The final pot contains a highlighter called Moonlight and it is just absolutely beautiful. With its Iridescent blues pinks and golden tones and whether you lightly apply it or build it up, it really brightens up the skin to give it a glow. 
English Mineral Makeup Company Swatches
The swatches shown above are unedited and are taken just after each product was swatched on my hand.  At the very front is Moonlight, from which you can see the shines in the light of cold wintery day.  Behind that, we have Rose, which in the light has a slight coral tone to it and I absolutely love how it looks when applied.  The final swatch is Godmother and I've included it so that you can see that despite being a power, it blends just absolutely stunningly onto my skin.

Each one of these powders retails around £27 but you have to be quick to get your hands on them, especially Fairy Godmother because as soon as it is available, it is snapped up.  As well as powders, you can also find Mascaras, Foundations, bronzers and other brushes. This has been a great introduction to the brand and my favourite product, well actually I really have enjoyed using them all and all for very different reasons.

Have you tried anything from the English Mineral Makeup Company?

  2. I'm very intrigued by Fairy Godmother - I can't imagine applying a product that can be used as makeup as a night treatment so I am really looking forward to hearing more on that! xx
