I was recently sent some Mineral Makeup products by VANI-T to review, and loved them so much I thought I’d pop together a little blog for you!
As you know I’m in my 30s, a mama and ex-beauty therapist. All of these things really influence how I use and rate products these days! Obviously I am a little more aware of certain things due to my background, although in saying that I do feel like the general public is becoming more and more interested and educated in their products which is fantastic! My preference for products are: no talc, no fragrances, no parabens and cruelty free. Because I’m a busy mama I need products that I can use quickly and easily and don’t break the bank. Because I’m in my 30s I need products that also don’t sit in fine lines or look cakey, have an SPF and also let my skin breathe naturally. I’m happy to say the VANI-T makeup does all that and more!
The team sent over a little parcel for me to try and I was pleasantly surprised with what they chose for me: Mineral Powder Foundation (2 shades! I love when women know what women need… I always have two shades of foundation so I can mix and match depending on where I am on my tan schedule), Ready Set Glow setting spray, Dream Matte Bronzer (powder), Brow Cushion Duo (you know how important eyebrows are to me!), and Fibre Lash Mascara Extension Kit.
Mineral Powder Foundation
I have a combination/oily T-Zone skin type and when I was younger I always used a Mineral Powder Foundation, but lately have moved to Mineral Liquid Foundations as my skin needs have changed. I was really pleasantly surprised at how well the mineral powder sat and lasted on my skin, it didn’t crease or become cakey and lasted all day. I also love how easily it is to build the coverage, a light dusting for school drop off to a more deeper coverage for nights out. I do love a versatile product!
Dream Matte Bronzer
I must admit I never used to use a lot of bronzer, but since becoming a regular self tanner it has entered my makeup arsenal. This is such a great colour and really easy to build depth when required. I have even started to use it as my contour powder as it blends so beautifully.
Ready Set Glow Setting Spray
When I opened my parcel and saw the Ready Set Glow I was mesmerised! It looks like molten gold, swirling around beautifully. I also didn’t think it would suit me, I don’t like to look shiny because of my oily T-Zone, but boy was I surprised with how much I love it! Although the gold looks intense it is actually a really subtle and natural glow when sprayed on. I felt dewy and youthful, and it kept my makeup looking amazing all day!
Brow Cushion Duo
I’ve tried A LOT of brow products. Pencil, crayon, pomade, wax, gel, mascara, powder… brows are very important to me! Since having my eyebrows microbladed, I find it a lot easier to top up my brows when wearing foundation, but I still need a good product that will last. I hesitantly tried the Brow Cushion Duo, which is actually a liquid! that dries to a powder, and it glided on smoothly and easily and lasted all day. I’m impressed! Even more impressive is you can use it as a liquid liner as well! I love how all the VANI-T products are so versatile! Waterproof, smudge proof and sweat proof this is a great product if you like to wear brows no matter what activities you’re up to!
Fibre Lash Mascara Extension Kit
Wow. Just WOW. Scroll down to see one eye with the Fibre Lash Mascara and one without. It’s actually amazing, I am obsessed! For some reason I thought I’d spend all day blinking fibres out of my eyes (ha ha!) but it felt no different to normal mascara. It’s so quick and easy to apply as well, one coat of the mascara followed by a coat of the fibres then sealed with another coat of mascara. I did two coats of fibres (mascara/fibres/mascara/fibres/mascara) and it took only a minute and they looked like false lashes. Without the hassle of glue!
I am really impressed with the quality of the VANI-T products, and wouldn’t hesitate to buy them myself or recommend them to others. I’m actually going to get the liquid foundation to try as well as I think I’ll love using the mix of powder and liquid depending on how my skin is feeling. Have you tried their products?
