Mica Bella Starter Kit

I don’t really know why I got suckered into buying this. I don’t really care much about mineral makeup. I don’t really fancy loose powder products. But I just got suck into buying this. IMG_0791.JPG

So this come with 2 foundation shades, a blush, shimmer powder and 3 brushes. The swatches are as followed. Shimmer in 8 Tease, foundation shade in MF2 Sandstone, blush in MB5 Terra Cotta and foundation in MF5 Cappuccino. 

The shimmer is quite standard. A pretty shimmery golden neutral. Can be use on its own or as a top up. 

The blush is more of orangey shade. Looks good on a tan. It’s pigmented and not powdery. I kind of like it, but you have to be careful on the way you apply. A stippling blush will be good as you don’t pick up a lot pigment. 

The foundation shade, Sandstone is way too light. Cappuccino is way too dark. Even missing the shade, it’s still a bit too dark. I have to add a few more loose powder from different compact. Also the powders are not fully matte. But it does bring a nice full look to the face. 

The brushes are small, good to toast into the bag. Not exactly the best, but it’s ok. 

Wouldn’t exactly buy this again. But oh well.
