Askmewhats Reviews: TBS Nature's Minerals Cheek Color


As seen in my previous Coming Soon post, I got the chance to test on The Body Shop Nature's Minerals Collection. (again thanks to Lisa of Ignite Social Media )

I love blushes so I started using the blush first for the first part of my TBS Nature's Minerals review.

Color: Warm Copper






Nature's Minerals Cheek Color Says ---
  • Mediterranean clay is an absorbent mineral that helps bind make-up to skin for long-lasting coverage.
  • Mica adds luster and has light-diffusing particles to help disguise fine lines.
  • Titanium dioxide and red, yellow and black iron oxide provide a natural-looking color palette.
  • Dermatologist-tested with no added fillers, preservatives or fragrances.

Askmewhats Says ---

Pros

  • you won't be looking like a clown for sure as this creates a soft, natura- looking color
  • has tiny gold specks that can create a natural sun-kissed look
  • good quality packaging, I've checked the bottom part and the plastic is no. 7 (which is good number for water bottle)
  • since the sifter is made of mesh, it makes the mineral finer thus you can never have "streaks" on your cheeks.
  • no allergies for me!
Cons
  • based on the color Warm Copper, I would say it won't show up on some skin tone, so you have to really pack on the product to get the desired look.
  • can be messy for people who are not used to mineral make-up

Overall


TBS NM Warm Copper is a pretty combination of Peach and Gold. I would say it reminded me so much of NARS Orgasm not because of the color but because of the gold shimmer both products have. Even the size of the gold specks are exactly the same as Orgasm. <--- good timing I got my Orgasm huh?


Tips
  • use a denser brush (in my opinion) when you apply this blush, as I've tried using a loose brush and I can't seem to see the color on my cheeks.
  • start less then build up the color you desire
  • if you are looking for an "obvious" blush, this won't be it as TBS NM is aiming for natural looking beauty!

Will I repurchase?


Yes, I am aiming for Pink Quartz...hmmm..
Cheek Colors are available in 4 colors - Pink Quartz, Golden Terracotta, Warm Copper and Brown Topaz

How much?


At the local Body Shop, costs Php895 (approx $18.00)

The Specs ---

Here's the size on my hand
Instructions on how to use the product inserted in




The Blush size as compared to the Foundation
(L-Blush/R- Foundation)



When you peel the safety sticker, here's how the sifter looks
It's not the usual holes from most plastic sifters
They use mesh as sifters



You've seen how it looks like on my hand




Start with tiny amount
(you can always re-apply if needed)



Swirl...
Tap...
and Buff....

Here's the result on my cheeks
For reference, I swirled, tapped and buffed 2-3 times on each cheek to get this result



How do you like my Warm Copper Cheeks?
