Glo Minerals

I was sent an email asking if I wanted to try out some products from a brand called Glo Minerals, the products are already a hit in the US and they are now launching in the UK! They sent me a 'Glo Box' of products to try out, firstly I am going to talk about one of my favourite products which is the Smokey Eyes Palette. This is a quad with all the colours you need to create the perfect smokey eye! I have to say that I am very very impressed with the pigmentation, it is amazing!! The quad contains a neutral shade, greys and an iridescent black, if you don't want to do a dramatic smokey eye you can simply use the light shade all over the lid and blend the darker colours into the crease or outer corner. I have also really been loving the bronzer in Sunkiss, I recently went on holiday and got a slight tan so I've been using this to accentuate that and add a little bit more colour, there are two different shades and I swirl my brush between the two to create a really pretty glowy colour. Another great product is the blusher in Nectar, I've mentioned before that I tend to prefer deeper shades of blush as they tend to look better on my skintone. Both the bronzer and the blusher are very pigmented so I would recommend using a light hand when applying them! I was also given the Face Primer, this is a clear gel and feels similar to the Gosh Primer (if you've ever tried that!) it's thicker than some other primers that I've used but I actually really liked this one. I only tend to apply primer around my nose as that is where I tend to get oily, this makes the skin feel super soft once it's been applied. The tube is quite small, however a little really does go a long way! Finally is the lipgloss in the shade "Blushed" which is a really pretty dark pink which I think will suit a lot of skintones, it also smells really lovely! The colour isn't something I would usually pick up as I go for lighter and more subtle pinks but it is really lovely and it looks especially nice if you apply a tiny bit and blend it out! You can have a look at all their products on the website here!
