Getting the right finish using a mineral used to elude me until I started to use Boosters and Veils. I scoffed at these at first, thinking it was all just gumpf and nonsense. I preferred to use a normal pressed powder or silica powder.
I then received the new tinted mineral booster from e.l.f. One of the many parts of my work is to get all new items to familiarise myself with :)
I dutifully used it over a mineral foundation, grabbed my stuff and left the house. I was very impressed with the results. My skin did look smoother and there were no "blooms" or cling-ons - you know when you get product clinging on to dry bits you didn't even know you had... So I advise people who have issues with cling and dry bits to try a booster, there are three shades - shimmer (which is more of a pearl), tinted (suitable for more tanned, olive, asian and african-carribbean skin tones) and sheer which is suitable for caucasian skin tones. I use the shimmer as a highlight for day wear as it is very subtle and tinted around the nose and forehead where I need the smoothing as I have some open pores. For £3.50, I will buy these for friends and family with dry skin to use over foundation or alone to even out skin tone.
