I have to be honest people... this post was ready to go on-line about 2 and a half weeks ago.
For those who were wondering where I've been, I went home to Italy for a couple of weeks. I did have a few posts typed up and ready to be posted(this review included) so you guys would have something to read whilst I was gone, but that evening Blogger decided to throw a massive strop and when I went to publish them....they all "magically" disappeared! I was leaving the morning after so I didn't have the time to re-write them all again.
Before I start with the review I must admit this is a sponsored post(which I am uber excited about!!!). You guys know how uber sensitive my skin is so I was really glad to be given the chance to test some of their products fr free.
First Light Cosmetics are a mineral make up brand completely free of chemicals and preservatives (my skin says thank you!) with a wide range of choice of colours.
I found this really interesting: "Test the products at home and save time and money. We offer free postage on sample sized products then deduct the price of up to 2 samples against the purchase of a full size jar. Write to us at email@example.com once you have bought the full size product and we will refund the cost of the samples."
As you can see the products come in a cute little pouch which the web site states is "produced by the Mabinti Center in Tanzania. For more information on the Mabinti Center please click here. "
I got to try the foundation and 2 eye shadows.
I picked the lightest shade of foundation: "First Frost: A light, pale shade for delicate porcelain skin tones".
As usual with foundations I was a bit skeptic colour wise, but the shade absolutely delivered!
I did try this both dry and wet.
Dry it's very very light, buildable coverage and you don't feel caky at all. I usually prefer mineral foundations in the wet application but for some reason, with this one I prefer it dry.
When applied wet, just one layer gives you a medium coverage.
Goes without saying a perfectly hydrated skin is of utter importance with mineral foundations, or you'll end up looking horribly ashy and patchy.
A jar of 10g is £12.99 and a little 2g is £1.50
Here are the 2 eye shadows.
I did try to swatch them but I found that Cobalt Sea is such an amazing colour that it keeps changing depending on the lighting. It's VERY shimmery, I would say almost glittery, but despite that it has close to no fall out at all when applied dry. When applied wet it has a little bit of fall out but no big deal, and it's super super intense!
Sunkissed disappointed me a bit, it looks a lot darker on the website, hence why I picked it, but as you can see it's a very light reddish brown which I think really doesn't go with my skin nor eye colour. I didn't notice much of a difference in colour intensity when applied wet or dry.
They both are £5.99
You will be able to see the products in future FOTD's. If anyone is interested I can do a video review.
Ciao for now,
