Tag Archives: KmS Mineral Essentials

Ladies! (and gents), I don't usually like to do "LOTD" reviews, but today I was feeling pretty smug with my pink smoky eye that I managed to create so I thought why not!

LOTD1I came across a drugstore sale yesterday and as I was feeling for some vibrant eyeshadow colours I picked up a Beauty UK palette.  I must admit, I hadn't heard of this brand before, but I actually really like how pigmented their shades are.  I found there to be a strange waxy coating on the eye shadows (which I used the back of my brush to scrape off - sorry it had to be done), once that was off, it was lovely.

I used my trusty KMS Mineral Essentials foundation, with my Sephora Colourful Collection in Matt (No54 Black Lace) as my liner and to smudge it out.   I used a Taupe(ish) Makeup Store shade on my crease to blend it (will get the name a little later).  I also used Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch Perfecting Make-up Base and Makeup Store's Clear Eye Primer.  Obviously I contoured with Benefit's famous Hoola, and used a little Benefit Sunbeam to highlight.  I finished the look off with Benefit's POREfessional: Agent Zero Shine.

Thoughts or tips?

Have a lovely day and stay blessed!

So, if you follow me on Instagram (which you should be...@madeupbh - link on the right) you will already know that I recently received my KMS Mineral Essentials Mineral Foundation.  I have to say, I'm in love!

I have to give credit to Kristi for the amazing product she has created.  The shade match is amazing and the finish is beautiful.  I finally have my flawless finish again!  It is not powdery at all, doesn't look caked on, I cannot rave about this product enough.

In order to be able to give a fair review, I decided to use the foundation for at least a couple of weeks because I know how my skin works, and after my Bare Minerals fiasco.  Even though I loved the finish from the first time I put it on.
