Askmewhats Revisits: Mineraux Skin Perfecting Minerals Beach Tan Bronzer

A month ago, my favorite blush for the week was Mineraux's Beach Tan Bronzer. After more than a month...how do I feel about this?

It's AMW Revisits time and I'm happy to say, it hasn't left my "favorite" list! It's actually still on top! Read on for my review!

Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • very pigmented
  • gorgeous color
  • a little goes a long way!
  • lasts almost the whole day!
  • affordable
  • versatile, perfect for both day and nights
  • doesn't look "wet" on photos unlike other shimmery makeup products
Cons
  • the usual messiness of mineral makeup, but who cares?
Overall
I find it very difficult to have favorites for mineral blushes! Why? It seldom stays, it's always pretty to look at but before half of the day ends, I need to retouch! With the Mineraux Mineral Bronzer in Beach Tan, the peachy shade with hint of gold shimmer works so well on my skin tone, it looks so natural on my skin and the best part, it stays longer than my other mineral blushes or even regular blushes!

Once I went out with mom (before her operation) and we were out for the whole day, it was a day of tasks to do and we were out in the sun for long! I remembered having my usual BB cream, powder, blush and lipbalm!

After a long day, we got home and rested. Mom took a look at me and said: "You look pretty, you look like you're blushing!" I thought I just needed water due to dehydration *laughs* so I went to the kitchen and took a look at myself expecting to see a horrible reflection!

You know what I saw??? A blushing bride *joking!!!!* I saw someone with healthy skin looking back at me, and I swear! After more than 5 hours under the sun and pollution, Mineraux's Beach Tan survived! It stays on and it looks gorgeous!

Mineraux stay's true, it's made with perfection especially for our needs!

Tips
  • use a fluffier blush brush for a more natural look
  • use a slanted angled blush brush for a more defined cheeks
  • swirl the blush and tap your brush upside down not to waste the minerals, gently buff onto your cheeks
  • always be gentle in buffing
  • less is always more!
Will I repurchase?

Definitely!!!

Where to purchase and how much?

Here's the swatch again!




And I've sported this blush in 2 ways:
More dramatic cheeks to pop up my cheeks



A sweep of very light bronzy look
for a healthy and natural glow!



I remember telling my blogger friend Paris B, that I find using bronzers as blush looks better on my skintone! I find it so true! My other favorite daily blushes are my Stila Bronzing Powder, MAC's Grand Duo in Light Over Dark and Elizabeth Arden's Bronze Powder. Now the list can go on and what's similar in all of them? Bronze, shades of brown! :)

Keep smilin'

  4. i just started getting into mineral blushes and i have been lucky as they last on me just as well as regular blushes. maybe it's because i also have concealer on my cheeks so the concealer works like a glue? HAHAHAHAHA

    by the way, i think you should call the lip colour on the 2nd FOTD a HG!

  6. Looks great Nikki :)

    I have difficulty with staying power of mineral blushes. I bought Alison Raffaele Inner Glow & apply that after foundation, before applying powder or mineral blush. It stays on longer than blush alone. If I apply the Inner Glow after blush, it won't apply evenly. At least from my experience.

    I use Sexy, a coral-orangey shade that works great with warm toned blushes. Glamorous is also great with other blushes, but it has quite a lot of shimmer.

    Hurry, it's on sale in Beauty Bar (65% off from 1500 - 525) til the end of the month. Bought mine in Gateway. Sadly, only Glamorous is on sale.
