〰 Inika Mineral Blush in 'Rosy Glow'* | 3g | £17 〰
Inika is a brand that is quite new to me. Their organic philosophy was what drew me in and I couldn't wait to try out their products. Inika is a makeup brand that is certified vegan, halal and cruelty-free. Their products are made up from crushed mineral pigments, which are free of chemicals and additives that could cause skin irritation. Although I’m only recently getting into mineral makeup, once I saw Inika's dainty Mineral Blush Puff Pots I knew they would be the first product I wanted to try.
Mica (CI 77019); Zinc Oxide (CI 77947); May contain (+/-) Tin Oxide (CI 778161); Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891); Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499); Ultramarines (CI 77007) (Free of oil, talc, alcohol, fillers, fragrance, preservatives & chemical dyes)
The cute and compact packaging makes the blush easy to carry around in your bag. It’s also very sturdy and strong which means no spillage! The loose powder is contained in the bottom pot, which has a soft sponge applicator on top for application and a small mirror on top of the lid. To apply the product, you just have to turn the pot upside down until blush appears on the applicator and then gently dab the blush onto your cheeks. I’m new to using this type of sponge applicator and I’m yet to master how to apply the product evenly to achieve that natural effect. I definitely prefer using a brush but if you have any tips, I'd love to know!
The powder itself is very smooth and has a subtle shimmer to give off a lovely glow. The shade is described as a neutral pink/mauve and it really does give your cheeks a ‘rosy glow’! I usually go for light pink blush as I have fair skin, but with this you can easily build up the colour to your liking so it is suitable for all skin tones - a little goes a long way. I love how the colour looks once it’s applied and it lasts all day without the need for touch-ups.
After trying the Mineral Blush Puff Pot*, I’m now a certified Inika fan – the quality of their products has definitely impressed me. I have my eyes on their lipsticks and eyeshadow next!
Let me know what you think of Inika and do you have any recommendations on what to try next?
