I got the surprise of my life last Saturday when I went to the Human Heart Nature headquarters in Quezon City to buy the Love Minerals Powder Foundation, among other things. When I got to the counter, the girl asked which shade of Love Minerals Blush I’d like to have, as they currently have a promo where the blush comes free with any purchase of the Love Minerals Foundation. Stunned, I just gave her a blank stare. Oh what luck I have! For just P425 (the price of one mineral foundation), I get two products–It’s a great deal!
So I quickly mumbled I’ll-go-check-the-sample-shades-first then bolted to the makeup counter to choose. Since I’ve already tried the Petal Bloom shade and wasn’t too happy with it, I opted for the darker Tropical Rose.
This is how it looks like from the box.
As you can see, the box has an old grandma-ish graphic look to it. But it’s not much of an issue for me as what’s important is the actual color the product will be on my cheeks.
The shade actually looks promising. I haven’t used it yet but I’m hoping it will give my cheeks that just-pinched look with just one 10-second round-and-round swipe of my brush with its dark color. This is because I do three sets of 10-second round-and-round brush strokes with my Petal Bloom shade–and it still doesn’t do the job. Sadness.
As for the Love Minerals Powder Foundation, I must say I’m quite happy with it. I tried on the Orient Pearl shade last Sunday when I went to Mass with my family. Human Heart Nature must have improved the formulation of the particular batch I got since it had very little trace of the metallic smell other blogs complained about. A couple of pats on the pot, followed by a few pats on the face, and then blend–That’s all I needed to get clearer and healthier-looking skin.
Some bloggers claim to have fewer zits after using this product for a while, but I have yet to prove that true. I’ve only used it once, after all. Also, I have yet to find out if this product really reduces oiliness on the face, but I truly hope it does!
And I really hope they change their tacky box design. Look!
On a brighter note, what’s really important is the product and not the box. Both the Love Minerals powder foundation and blush are natural and organic, which therefore means that these won’t harm the skin now and in the future–and that’s the best thing.
More special offers here. I don’t know how long these offers will last, though.
