is the best kinda makeup in my eyes. Soft, glowing, earthy tones that feel natural and pretty. The only draw back, I feel, is that once you’ve carefully manufactured that summer natural glow it’s keeping it on your face in the humid and hot summer heat.
I’ve created sensual and glowing makeup look for the hot summer months using some amazing new beauty products. The video is linked below so check it out after you read about the hero product pulling this look together.
I often partner with Avon to test and review their new beauty launches and this one has to be my favourite to date. When the new Avon True Colour Finishing Pearls arrived I was unsure about how they would fair. This style of product; loose, tri-coloured balls of finishing powder in a pot seemed like an out-dated way of packaging a product. But I know from my years experience in beauty blogging that you cant judge a product by the way its delivered.
What are Avon True Colour Finishing Pearls…
The hint is in the name. They are to be used to finish the skin (whether that’s a finished makeup look or just as an enhancer/perfector on top of a bare face). Three slightly different shades of glowing pearls make up each shade/pot and when blended together with the retractable blending brush they smooth over the skin creating a semi-matte, airbrush effect that is totally weightless and long wearing. BUT (and this is the big but for me); the formula maintains the GLOW we all want from a summer makeup look so your skin doesn’t look too “makeup-y” but retains a real skin finish. This is of course buildable to the amount of coverage you desire.
You’ll see in the video below I use a base product, concealer and bronzer so any finishing product worn in the summer for me has to be as weightless and barely there poss.
I did this look, finished y look with the Avon True Colour Finishing Pearls in Medium shade and went out and shot a full Summer Lookbook video with 5 outfits changes. When I got back home (post sweating, running, changing and 5 hours later) my makeup was exactly the same as it was when I left the house. If that’s not a testament to how frickin’ good this is I don’t know what is.
This product is basically perfect…
albeit it’s not as convenient as a flat compact powder you can carry around with ease, but then you might not need to as I’ve witnessed long wear effects. (leave the powder at home girls!)
It is a summer essential for anyone who wants to finish and set a makeup look without it looking flat or over done. But unlike many weightless powder formulas this one has the staying power.
Available in six shades from Fair to Deep.
