Inika Mineral Foundation & Kabuki Brush

I was absolutely thrilled when I received my latest My Pure pack for review as this one was tailored to match my skin/hair type.
The first products I am going to review are the Inika Mineral Foundation in Patience 05 and the Inika limited edition travel Kabuki Brush both of which came in a delightful little gold purse.

The Mineral Foundation I received is a 3g pot, i'm not sure of the price for this but an 8g pot is available on the My Pure website for £24.99 and is available in 6 shades (click here to view) which have the most fabulous names like Pateince, Trust, Strength etc.
The limited edition mini retractable travel Kabuki Brush doesn't seem to be available to buy by itself, however you can purchase the regular sized Kabuki Brush for £22.99, which in my opinion would be money well spent as they really are perfect. These brushes are one of a kind as they are 100% certified vegan and 100% certified cruelty free and due to the unique design, the bristles remain in tact. As you can see from the pic, it's ideal just to pop in your handbag and it won't take up too much room either!

I've personally never used a mineral foundatin so wasn't quite sure what to expect....or even how to use!! I began by applying just a small amount of powder to the brush, then I gently swept it over my face until I had a light coverage all over. Instantly I could see results, my uneven skin tone looked more even and a few of the blemishes had faded...fantastic news for me! The powder gave a much lighter feel to my skin than my usual foundation and I was able to comfortably apply eyeshadow etc over the top. This is probably the most natural I have ever managed to look with make up on so I was extremely impressed.....no tide lines and no areas where the foundation had 'clumped'.
I didn't need to reapply this at all throughout the day but it was very easily removed with my regular face wipes.
I would defiantely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a natural look which isn't too heavy and leaves your skin looking radiant and shine free.
If you're thinking the mineral foundation and the brush come in a little pricey, you can also buy the Inika Essential Collection Gift Pack which contains a 3g pot of mineral foundation (5 shades available for this one), the limited edition mini retractable travel Kabuki Brush and a full size (11.4g) luscious certified organic Berry Lip Whip all come in the fabulous little gold purse as shown in my pic - I love the purse and the fact that its useable makes it a blummin good buy! The Essentials pack costs only £29.50 which I reckon makes it a very good buy!!

  1. You got one thing right. It's all about the brush. We also do a sample pack that includes the travel size kabuki brush. The other thing to check for is if the natural makeup comes in a full size container so you can get it out. The sample packs that come in a plastic bag are just a waste of time. http://www.naturalmakeup.net.au
