Sheercover's #makeitmineral Challenge

Over the last week or so I've been taking part in the #makeitmineral challenge. Which basically involves replacing your usual products - with, you guessed it - mineral equivalents from Sheercover. Recently I've been trying out the starter kit* (in light), so today I thought I'd let you now what I think of it. 

Okay, so the products that I was most looking forward to trying were the Lengthening Mascara and the Lash Extending Fibers. I like to apply a thin coat of the mascara, followed by a thin layer of the fibers then finish with another thin coat of mascara. And oh my, they make my lashes look lovely. (You can see how they look on me, here.)

If you've been reading Becca's Fashion and Life for a while, you'll probably be aware that I don't tend to wear foundation on a daily basis. That being said, I did give the Mineral Foundation a go, and I was pleasantly surprised. It's a really good match for my skintone, and despite not being the greatest of coverages, I love how it makes my skin look, plus it contains SPF 15.

I don't like writing negative reviews, but I wasn't a fan of the Sun-kissed Bronzing Minerals. They're not very pigmented and I'm not a big fan of the darker shades. However, I do quite like the lightest colour as it makes a lovely browbone highlight.

 I personally find concealers to be either hits or misses, but I personally quite like this Conceal and Brighten Trio. The texture is really creamy and I really like the coverage of these as they're quite buildable. The lightest nude shade is my favourite, and I also find it blends really well with my skintone.

Included in the set was my 'free gift' which was a box containing these brushes. They're nice and everything, but nothing really to write home about. But I absolutely love the dark wood with the contrasting lilac metal - brownie points for aesthetics.

Okay, so the final verdict, will I be replacing my standard products with mineral equivalents: probably not.

  1. The replica hublot watches implications of this would be that beneath replicas are able to replica watch made, and so the ones that do administer to abide could go for abundant added money back appeal was greater, and because their superior is accepting bigger as it is back now acclimatized replica buyers will alone acquirement high-end replicas. Replica watches accept started application bigger stainless steel, authoritative bigger clear with rolex replica uk bifold anti-reflection coats and bigger dials, and added dependable replica movements of the Swiss ETA type. You can even acquisition tourbillons and ability affluence now on some of the bigger replica watches. Basically, if there is a slight dematerialization of replica watch companies, it has to do in allotment with a college accepted for the watches themselves. The ultra-accurate companies are animated added blithely aural a possibly new acrimonious all-embracing ambiance for replicas. These rolex uk new watches can command from $300 to $2500 instead of a few hundred dollars with their superior builds and avant-garde apparatus and won not get down-bid by the characterless companies. This leads to added profit, but it may aswell advance to beneath superior ascendancy eventually back the rolex replica antagonism acreage would be smaller.
