REN – Satin Perfection BB Cream

REN – Satin Perfection BB Cream

I received this mini sample of REN Satin Perfection BB Cream in the Latest In Beauty British Beauty Blogger Dream Box that I purchased a few months ago. REN is a brand that I admire very much – their products contain only 100% plant and mineral derived actives and are free from synthetic ingredients – and my favourite skincare product of 2013 was REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I still can’t really make my mind up about BB Creams, I find a lot of them give a shiny plasticky finish to the skin, plus as I have combination skin my nose and chin often find them too oily. However this REN Satin Perfection BB Cream gives a nice satin finish which I was really pleased about – my skin doesn’t look shiny at all – and then I finish it with a dusting of Clinique Blended Face Powder.

Beautiful Movements – Mineral Foundation Powder

Beautiful Movements – Mineral Foundation Powder

Regular readers of Beauty Best Friend may have already read my review of Prime & Create Mixing Medium and Concealer Powder from Beautiful Movements Cosmetics (you can read that review here). Today I am reviewing Mineral Foundation Powder*, which should also be mixed with Prime & Create to form a cream foundation. Beautiful Movements used to be known as BM Beauty and one of their co-founders is stunning ex-Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt. Beautiful Movements are a natural cosmetic brand and their products are free from parabens, animal products, synthetic dyes & fragrances, neither are they tested on animals. I have been using Mineral Foundation Powder in Naked, a pale colour with balanced undertones, part of the Vanilla Rose collection. Using a small white porcelain saucer and my Bobbi Brown Foundation brush I mixed a hazelnut-sized blob of Prime & Create Mixing Medium with a very fine sifting of Foundation Powder, then blended it carefully. It took me quite a while to get the consistency right and to work out...

Beautiful Movements – Prime & Create Mixing Medium and Concealer Powder

Beautiful Movements – Prime & Create Mixing Medium and Concealer Powder

I first came across Beautiful Movements cosmetics when I received a small sample of their Prime & Create Mixing Medium in my May Glossybox. After doing a bit of research on the brand I found that they used to be known as BM Beauty and that one of their co-founders is stunning ex-Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt. Beautiful Movements are a natural cosmetic brand and their products are free from parabens, animal products, synthetic dyes & fragrances, neither are they tested on animals. Within this post I am reviewing two products – Prime & Create Mixing Medium* and Concealer Powder in shade ‘Be Gone’*. Prime & Create Mixing Medium is a fairly new product and it has 2 main uses – it can be used as a primer to help make-up stay put, or used as a mixing medium to blend with Beautiful Movements range of mineral make-up powders. It can be mixed with mineral and concealer powders for matte finish maximum coverage, with powder blushers and bronzers to create...
