In March my MyPure order contained some Inika Mineral Illuminisor and its perfect companion a Retractable Kabuki Brush from EcoTools. As I don’t wear make-up everyday it took me a while to properly asses both products; I am now ready to share my judgement 😉
Let’s start with the Inika Mineral Illuminisor.
Inika’s Illuminisor is an iridescent loose powder which gives the skin a beautiful dewy sheen and luminosity. You can use this gorgeous product as a highlighter on the cheeks and brow bone or dust over the entire face and decolletage to enhance your complexion and create an all-over healthy glow. Can be worn with bronzer, blush or alone to complete your look.
The first thing you will notice once you actually hold the product in your hand is its size – it is tiny. The powder comes in a 3g box. I really have no idea why I was expecting something bigger but I was. The packaging itself is very convenient. The illuminisor comes boxed and the container containing the powder itself is securely sealed.
The illuminisor powder has a slight pink colour and gives an amazing looking glow. It doesn’t leave too many sparkles so it can be used all over your face. This natural, fragrant free, not tested on animals product is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
The Inika illuminisor is priced at £17.00 for 3g. It is a very nice product but it is a little over priced in my opinion. If money is not an obstacle and you are looking for natural make-up then Inika may well be perfect for you but if you need to count every penny I believe there might be better value products out there on the market.
Just as stated on the MyPure website it should be applied with a Kabuki brush. I don’t have a nice brush so I ordered the Recycled Aluminium Retractable Kabuki Brush from EcoTools.
I like my new brush, I like it a lot, mainly because it doesn’t shed. All my other brushes loose bristles which most of the time get into my eyes or simply tickle me in places they shouldn’t; my new brush having been in use now for way over a month hasn’t even lost a single hair 😉
The brush is both lightweight and well finished yet feels very robust. It comes with a reusable pouch which is an extra bonus I guess as it isn’t really needed for this type of brush. The bristles are extremely soft and well-formed; and as stated earlier they do not shed.
Priced at just £12.99 the EcoTool Kabuki brush represents a great value for money and if you are on the market for a new brush I can highly recommend it.
