Eco Minerals Review + Photos

Eco Minerals from Byron Bay Shoot

Hello! I have to get this review up because I AM SO EXCITED about this product. I had been given a few samples of the * Eco Minerals cosmetics to try out a little while ago and fell instantly in lurve, especially with the foundation. I have never come across a foundation that is so easy to blend, just pop a bit into the lid, dip your kabuki brush in and swirl onto the face. I didn't have to worry about loose powder flying everywhere, there was no fallout and it applies very evenly with a matte finish. Eco Minerals is Australian made, cruelty free and the minerals are naturally derived. I think what I like most about this foundation is that it feels a lot 'cleaner' than other mineral foundations I have used previously. I actually have a popular drugstore mineral foundation in my other hand and it feels somewhat grittier and oilier. The Eco Mineral Foundation is smoother and the pigment is so very fine. I tried to get a swatch but couldn't get a photo that I liked so if you can use your imaginations for a minute. The swatch of the Eco Minerals was smooth, a consistent colour and it is brilliant to layer. The 'ye shall not be named' drugstore brand did not stay on my skin, in fact it was impossible to build because it would not stick to itself. Sigh.
I also gave the Bronzer a try and other than the foundation this is my favourite product. It is very subtle and easy to blend. The Illuminate is a bright white powder that doesn't sparkle or glitter it just makes my face glow! Dreamtime is Eco Minerals best selling pink shade and I can see why! It gave my skin a gorgeous natural looking flush of colour. The Kabuki brush is sold separately and has soft bristles to make application of the make up comfortable and evenly distributed on the skin. This brush has fine bristles so it was easy to  blend the powder into tight areas such as around my nose without dropping bits of foundation every where. The attractive Bamboo handle is eco friendly and the entire brush is vegan meaning there is no animal content.

I decided to put a full face on and persuaded my husband to take some pictures to show you how natural this make up looks! He is a bit of a fan of wacky camera angles, my apologies...

No need to use concealer to hide those dark circles from sleepless nights. I was super pleased that the Eco minerals foundation builds on it self evenly so I could cover up the circles without using a separate concealer.

We found a lone baby wandering the woods...

...so we decided to take it home and raise it as our own!

Have Fun!

P.S The baby is our daughter, just in case there are a couple of you that took me literally. We didn't find a wandering baby in the woods.
