e.l.f. Mineral Personal Blend Foundation SPF 15 ($8.00 USD) — Create customized mineral based color for a perfect match, year-round! Housed in a unique quad chamber for the perfect mix, the weightless mineral formulation blends seamlessly into skin and contains natural skin protecting SPF 15 and is 100% mineral based with no parabens, preservatives or chemical dyes. Infused with key Vitamin E for rich antioxidants that hydrate and replenish the skin. The inner dial allows you to control the amount of product dispensed so you can create your customized color and keep the powder closed for clean and easy use every time.
Each quad blend contains four perfectly matched shades:
- Light:Porcelain, Fair, Light, Beige
- Medium:Medium Beige, Golden Honey, Tan, Bronze
- Dark: Almond, Toffee, Dark, Deep
What I think: This is such a great idea for a summer powder. I have the medium, and I am in between Golden Honey and Tan so I mix them together. I use Bronze for a bronzer and I know as my (fake) tan fades, I know I will be more Medium Beige. So I get all different looks in one product. Genius! The only thing that I don’t care for is that there is a little shimmer in it and I like my powder matte. This is for sale at a Target store near you.
Perfekt Beauty Cheek Perfection Gel ($28.00 USD) — gives an instant lit-from-within flush to the cheeks. The multitasking formula glides on effortlessly to instantly per-fekt and enhance the appearance of the cheeks. Smart Color Technology™ assures a perfect color match for every skintone. This gel leaves a hint of natural color, sculpting and highlighting the cheekbones.
What I think: I like to use just a little bit of this gel to get a lit-from-within glow. It comes in two shades — Blushed and Bronzed. I have Blushed, which is a pretty red-toned blush that looks so natural on. But you can tell it is blush, I have had many compliments on it. Purchase at www.sephora.com or www.perfektbeauty.com.
