There's nothing I love more than discovering new brands and so when I was contacted about trying out some products from a brand called BPerfect I just couldn't say no. I didn't know what to expect from the brand but I can say that I'm pleasantly surprised. I was sent out two products which came in the form of their *Brush on Lashes and *Mineral Foundation.
Now when I think of Mineral Foundation I think really light coverage in powder form, and that's exactly what it is. BPerfect says 'Containing only the finest vegan and halal approved ingredients the BPerfectg 100% Mineral Powders contains no artificial colours, chemicals, perfumes, parabens, preservatives or man made minerals. They offer a natural UV protection and contain anti-inflammatory properties being the ideal powder to use with skin concerns such as acne, roscacea, eczema and other similar breakouts'.
In writing this sounds perfect for me however I have mixed feelings about this.
It's a loose powder so it's quite delicate and does not make my face look cakey in the slightest which is a good sign however I noticed a little shimmer in it which I am not really keen on as I like a matte base.
Packaging wise it is rather small in size(which I can actually imagine lasting a long time). I also found it difficult to get a little bit of the powder out as the 'sieve' like compartment seemed to clog up from the powder. The shade range is quite disappointing too with just four shades. I have the shade Nude which is unfortunately a little dark on me, however I love the way that it feels on my skin.
It makes my face feel super soft and comfortable. It doesn't feel heavy as my normal liquid foundation would do and allows my skin to breathe. It's almost like I'm not wearing any base makeup.
As much as I love the way it feels on my skin though I just couldn't wear this on a daily basis. I suffer from acne and I have quite a lot of scarring so I do feel much more comfortable with more coverage. Although it is said to be perfect for those with Acne and Rosacea I was gutted that it didn't work too well for me. It's perfect for those no makeup, makeup days when I want to stay in or pop to the shops quickly.
As disappointed as I was about the Mineral Foundation, I was not let down by the Brush on Lashes. Described as an alternative to eyelash extensions I was intrigued to try it out. Inside the box are two, thick silver tubes, the Lengthening Gel and Enhancement Fibres.
There are instructions inside, above the products to help along the way. You can apply mascara beforehand which I prefer to do or you can start off with Step One, applying the Lengthening Gel from root to tip. As soon as the Lengthening Gel was applied I took to my lashes with the Enhancement Fibres(which was Step Two). I had to be pretty careful with this as it can be quite easy to get in my eyes if there are too many fibres. After I was happy with that I left my lashes to set for 20 seconds. The third step was to apply the lengthening gel again to allow the fibres to 'stick'.
The results were pretty incredible. My lashes looked much more fuller and longer which is exactly what I was looking for. If you do feel like going more dramatic though you can repeat step two and three until you get your desired look.
If you don't have naturally long lashes like myself then I really do urge you to try this little set out. The BPerfect Mineral Foundation currently retails for £19.99 and the Brush on Lashes are £22.99. Overall I am very impressed with the Brush on Lashes and disappointed with the Mineral Foundation. I do hope that the shade range is extended.
Have you tried out the BPerfect Brush on Lashes or Mineral Foundation?
