I think the packaging is lovely; they come in a 0.17oz jars with a double lid. When you unscrew the outer lid off, you find a second liftable lid that stays attached to one side of the jar. You might have seen this kind of packaging in other loose mineral makeup, but if not, I’ll describe it to you. The inner lid has inward projections that insert into the little holes through which the loose makeup comes out of. So when you open the first lid, you won’t have all a cloud of mineral makeup floating or spilling around because a second lid prevents it from coming out of the little holes. I love the security this kind of packaging provides, not just keeping the loose makeup under a shield with holes, but also capping the holes so you don’t waste product and/or make a mess.
The bronzer only comes in one color, #167 Amber Glow. This is a lightly pigmented bronzer, and I find that it isn’t as buildable as the blush is. If you look at the color from the outside of the jar it looks like an orangey-tannish brown. When applied, it doesn’t really look orange like you just got a bad self tan, but I think it is a bit too light to be a bronzer, especially since it doesn’t really build up, like I said before.
I have two major complaints about these products. First, it’s shimmery. I don’t think it’s a terrible thing and I have nothing against shimmery makeup, but at least for a bronzer, I would prefer a matte variety.y second complaint is that it makes my face itch and burn. It’s not as bad as making me puff and turn red, but these products do make my face itch considerably. The itch starts about 30 minutes after I’ve put on all my makeup, lasts for about 30 more minutes, then either goes away or I stop noticing it’s there.
