Hello lovely people,
I want to share with you yet another great find I have made since completely upgrading the contents of my makeup bag to the whole definitive range of Tropic goodies. The Pure Effects Beauty Booster and Precision Beauty Sponge is a must have investment if you want a very lightweight base for your foundation, a subtle radiant glow or even just as an SPF 35. Both the Pure Effects and Precision Beauty Sponge come as a set and will cost you a modest twenty-two of your pound coins. Money spent very wisely if you ask me. All Tropic products are completely natural and Vegan.
I love makeup and I’ve always invested in good quality (or so I thought) products to enhance my ghost looking complexion and add colour and volume to my non existent eyelashes. I like a very subtle look for the daytime – blusher, eyeliner, mascara and depending how tired I look (I always feel tired), then I will also use a light foundation. For all my friends, lovely ladies at my local bakery, the postman, Amazon delivery drivers, they will laugh at this statement as if I’m at home then I pretty much always go make-up free. Can’t be anymore subtle than that look. If I’m not venturing out of the house then I just can’t be bothered to put on a ‘face’ but more importantly I think its good for your skin to have a break from make up every so often.
I’ve always used a light coverage foundation as I don’t like the heavy look or the feel of a foundation sitting on my skin. For these reasons and my love of all things Tropic, this Beauty Booster was an obvious purchase for me.
Its serum based so obviously more runny than a normal foundation but a little bit goes a long way. I just love the smell of it and how easily it glides onto my face. I have plenty of blemishes, laughter lines and dare I say it, the start of wrinkles. This Beauty Booster made such a huge difference to my complexion and because of the serum based consistency it didn’t sit in any of my pores or lines. My skin felt really smooth to touch after just one application.
The first time I used it after using the ABC range to cleanse, tone and moisturise, I just applied it with my finger all over my face and including my eye lids. The coverage is very subtle and although there was a sheen (not shine) to my face, it looked great with just a touch of blusher – Sculpting Palette in Vintage Rose and one application of the Fixing Gel Mascara.
My second experiment with Pure Effects was after a sudden outbreak of spots on my jawline (classic hormonal outbreak) and I really wanted more coverage. I applied the Pure Effects first with the Precision Beauty Sponge (slightly damp) and then added the tiniest bit of Correcting Cream Concealer (£22) with the Concealer Brush (£12), under my eyes and on the blemishes. I’m not sure if it’s a combination of using both the Correcting Cream Concealer and the Concealer Brush, but it went on like a dream. Look out for my blog next week on the Correcting Cream Concealer and how I learnt how to bake on the concealer.
As a new blogger I’m always on the lookout for Tropic product reviews and I really love giving exposure and credit where due, to beauty bloggers who I feel really experiment with a product and all of its uses before writing a really informative review.
Here is a brilliant detailed and glowing review of Pure Effects Beauty Booster from beauty & travel blogger Sarah – ‘I Heart Cosmetics’.
Pop over to her website as it’s really inspiring and she’s so honest about her experiences. She is a travel and beauty blogger and when I clicked on the page to tell me all about her, the first thing that connected me to her was the fact that her best job ever was working in Cadbury’s. Chocolate is my ultimate weakness and I think if I worked in Cadburys I would need a much bigger pair of pants. I’m now following Sarah on Instagram and I just love browsing through all of her pictures. They are really mood inspiring and make me feel as though I’m peaking into someones phone and seeing whats in their makeup bag and nosing through her holiday memories. Whoever took all the pictures is very gifted at photography.
I love everything about this Pure Effects Beauty Booster from its well thought out packaging to the flawless finished result. Let me know how you use it as I’m always looking at new and innovative ways (and definitely time saving) to apply my makeup.
