Happy Hump Day, Ladies ! Cant believe its almost mid week ! Whats getting me excited on this boring Wednesday, you ask ? Its the glow I've been faking with Prescriptives Mineral Color Kit !
Prescriptives is the newest member to the Mineral Makeup Family. With the sheer number of mineral makeup companies out there, it gets pretty over whelming to find a brand that one is can be sure of with quality and safety. That is why I think it is safe to trust big names like MAC & Prescriptives.

Its star ingredient is the R.E.C. (Radiance Emitting Crystals) complex -- a unique combination of Amethyst, Rose Quartz and Calcite -- so it absorbs light and delivers radiance and luminosity so skin appears to be “glowing from within.” Bright gems and minerals infused with vitamins create a look that is healthy, luminous and breathtaking.

The Mineral Color Line includes
Making Faces Mineral Kit ($37.50)
Warm Light/Medium
Warm Medium/Deep
Cool Light/Medium
Cool Medium/Deep

Making Eyes Mineral Kit($37.50)

Mineral Bronzer ($30)

Mineral Lip Gloss ($17.50)
Amber (Warm)
Sunstone (Warm)
Rose Quartz (Cool)
Amethyst (Cool

I tried out the Making Faces Mineral Kit in Warm Medium / Deep and the Making Eyes Kit in Warm. First thoughts - they are both great value for money. You'll see why...

With my Making Faces Mineral Kit I received a Mineral Color for Cheeks ( blush) in Terrastone - a very pretty warm terracotta shade with a hint of shimmer, a Loose Lighting Powder in Deep - a golden bronze shade and a very soft travel sized blush brush. Terrastone is very pretty color for you are above NC 45. On me it was kinda dark but with a light hand I think i can make it work . The loose lighting powder worked great for me ! It can be used for contour, highlight and as an all over bronzer ! Because it is so finely milled, the colors spread easily and form a thin vibrant layer on the skin making me look all glowy, naturally !

The Making Eyes Mineral Kit came with three shadows and a flat eyeshadow brush. The three shades in the warm kit includes, Sand crystal (highlight), Copper Crustal ( all over lid color), Earth Crystal ( crease color). The colors are all brilliant in their vibrancy and pigmentation. As with all loose shadows, I highly recommend a primer to avoid fall outs and to make them stay on longer. The only issue I have is with the packaging. The shadows come in cute tiny jars which you pop open and dip your brush into. I only wish it had a sifter so I don't have to worry about the product spilling, when I don't keep em upright.

Overall, a great buy ! For $37.50 I get 2 / 3 products in decent sizes and a very useful brush. Plus the colors are coordinated to suit warm / cool skin tones. This apart all the products in this line are oil free, fragrance free, talc free, dermatologist tested and non-acnegenic ! Its a great buy if you are looking to start out on makeup and for mineral makeup lovers in general.

Have you tried the new Mineral Color from Prescriptives ?
