SMMBeauty Mineral Blush Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have another great little product to tell you about from SMMBeauty called
Innocent Mineral Blush. I have been using their brand of mineral makeup as much as I can because I really like the lightweight feeling I have when I wear mineral makeup. I wish I had known about them alot sooner, I bet I could have saved myself alot of steps and money! But I guess as we get older is when we wise up and really start to look around us to find better ways and things to do with our money. Not sure why but for some reason this is a Limited Edition Blush so it won't be here all the time, I guess. Must be pretty special stuff. I do like it because it is light enough to just give you that faint blushing look like you got embarrassed but if you like your blushes to be bolder, they say to layer it and you will make it darker on your skin. My would be way too white to do much. I would look like a clown if I did that.
Well, see how the camera can make a color look like something else? Now, I am not sure that my Innocent Blush that I put on is as dark as this that is above me. I must really be light on the brush because that color looks really dark or the camera played tricks or something. I was hoping to give you a better look at the blush but doesn't look like that is gonna happen. I actually think that the way I put it on matches the top picture. Okay, so maybe that is the best way to describe it to you. The top picture is what the color would look like if you used it very little. The one above here that I copied off of their site is probably what you would get with layering.

First off let me explain that this is not Charlie. I was digging around SMMBeauty's site and found out that they actually have a Pet Hair Conditioner! I just thought those of you that have tried everything and still can't control his wild hair, might want to check this out and see if it works. If anybody does use it, I would love to know how it works. Charlie's hair is starting to get out of hand. I wish my hair grew back that darn fast! He is a cutie though, isn't he?

SMMBeauty has so many products I could not possibly list them all here but you have seen me write reviews for them lots of time so I am hoping you remember some of what I told you. Because gosh, I would really have to dig around to find them all. I did do a review on the Veils and Glows one time and just wanted to refresh your memory a little bit. I found out that having just those 2 simple things, Veils and Glows would change the way I put on makeup and how I took it off. I got the Be Flawless Veil which is the one below us but their lighting or something must be off a little because mine is white, not a blueish white like the one below:

See, they are not that color really. Mine is white and I don't know why that is showing a bluish color. Unless it does different shades when applied depending on your skin type. Go figure! I just know it gives my face this wonderful polished glow and I have had people ask me what am I doing differently to make myself look so rested. Well, it helps that I cheat a little and use these little babies to help hide things. You apply this after your foundation. It also helps to minimize the look of large pores, lines and wrinkles and can help control shine. It really is an amazing makeup tool that you need to try. You will so love this stuff!

I use the Halo Glow last so that you look like you have a glow about you. SMMBeauty's classic Halo Glow gives your complexion a subtle golden dewy luminescent glow. You can use the glow alone or over makeup to help minimize lines, wrinkles and pores or you can use it allover for a youthful luminescence or highlight cheeks and chin. Then this is when I apply the Innocent Blush, after these two wonderful things are done I lightly tap on some blush to make it look slightly natural. This stuff is the bomb!
You won't go back to regular makeup after using these 3 products I just told you about. I think I am naked now if I don't dust myself off with a little bit of all 3 before I leave. These are great on the go's to have in your handbag because it only takes a few minutes to put them on and your hands won't be covered in liquid foundation ever again.

SMMBeauty has been so kind as to offer the winner of the Luck of the Irish Blog hop that starts on March 1st and end on March 17th their own blush just like the one I reviewed. Thanks SMMBeauty! Good Luck!
