This is my 1st birthday treat to myself. Yes that is right. Any excuse to buy makeup when I can is a good thing. I have had my eye on mineral makeup like this for sometime. I have read so much good stuff about it.

So as my local Debenhams sells the full colour range I had to treat myself. I bought the starter kit for £45. It comes with two foundations (my kit came with Golden Dark and Medium Dark) which have an SPF 15, Mineral Veil (finishing powder) and Warmth( which is an all over face colour). It also comes with a skin primer called Skin Rev-er upper, an instructional DVD and info book. It is a pity that the info book was not an instructional too. The final part of the kit are three brushes – foundation, concealer and kabuki brushes. The sales assistant says this is all I need for flawless application.

The DVD covers the products in your kit plus other products you can purchase should you choose. For my skin she used Golden Dark, which the other sales assistant thought was a perfect match. I think I can use this loads. It does not feel like I have anything on. I still love my crème to powders and my mac studio fix powder NW43. Though this is new to me. So will be fun.

Have you used mineral makeup before? How was it for you?
