First Light cosmetics Review

First Light Cosmetics is a brand which sells 100% mineral make-up. They also help support women from disadvantaged parts of the world. The products are beautifully packaged in the pouches which are produced by the women, you can read more info about this on their site.

I was sent some products to review which was brill, and they also let me pick what I wanted to review even better!!
I had a browse through their products and colours and it was hard to choose. However I decided on one product right away which was Eye Light this really appealed to me because my one bug bear is my dark circles.
I looked through the foundation shades and the one which I thought most suited my skin tone was Summer Meadow. Sadly I dont own a kabuki brush BUT I do now!!!!
The lovely people at First Light Cosmetics sent me their baby soft Kabuki brush and a sample size of the mineral foundation.

Ok now onto the swatches.. Here is Eye Light I can honestly say this is a must for any of you ladies out there who have dark circles! I am so excited and relived that their is such a product which truly lives up to its name! This really does lighten and brighten the eye area.

First Light say:
This soft, light emitting loose powder is spectacular for concealing puffiness, redness and dark circles while diminishing signs of fatigue. Works over the lids or on the sensitive under eye area to brighten and conceal. Perfect for late nights and early mornings!

See for yourself before and after photos.. so you know Im telling you the gospel truth. Ok heres with nothing on my dark circles... pretty scary arent they??

And Voi-la lighter and brighter under eyes! And a very happy lady.

See I told you so...

Onto the next 2 products Mineral foundation in Summer Meadow, this is described as a light-medium shade with cool pink undertones. This felt very easy to apply with the help of their super soft Kabuki brush made from goat hair. After using a powder brush with previous mineral foundations to finally have and use a Kabuki brush makes all the difference. So if your on the look out for a Kabuki brush i recommend this brush.

The foundation shade was good, I think this would be more wearable for myself in the summer, ha ha hence the name Summer Meadow.

First Light say:
Made from the finest crushed minerals, discover First Light's high quality natural foundation and you will never look back! This light veil of minerals will give your skin a fresh and radiant morning luminosity - all day long. The light reflecting powder sits weightlessly against your skin, giving you a natural “airbrushed” look, with great coverage that you can control. Our 100% mineral formula contains no preservatives, no talc and no chemicals.

The foundation felt light and covered my face well, I was able to build the colour up more in certain areas on the face but still looked natural and flawless. I strongly recommend to order a minium of two shades if your unsure.
First Light offer free postage on sampled sized mineral cosmetics and will deduct the price of up to 2 samples against the purchase of a full size jar!

Here are a couple pics of my face make-up wearing Summer meadow & Eye Light

Was going for a natural look and think I pulled it off. I also felt the foundation gave my skin that something extra like a warm glow.

Have you tried First Light Cosmetics? If not pop over to their site and have a look they also stock Mineral Blush/Mineral Bronzers/Mineral Eyeshadow/Lipsticks and Brushes.

I've already been eyeing up their mineral blush Kohilo and lipsticks Daybreak & Albaze.
