Review by Chloeoverall, I'd thoroughly recommend this powder, as I say, more so for light to medium skin tones, but hopefully, as we buy more vegan beauty products and create more demand, they'll be more and more on the market! This sets my makeup all day long and adds a little extra coverage over my liquid foundation.(Posted on 23/06/2016)

Review by VanessaThe packaging is really simple yet effective, it comes in a small black box - perfect size to take out of an evening in a clutch bag too - with a bit silver elastic attached to keep the powder closed and stop it from escaping all over my bag.(Posted on 02/07/2015)
The powder has a better staying power than the lipstick but again it isn't amazing, I do have to reapply it two or three times through the day. This could be due to the fact that I don't apply much each time as I like my skin being able to get some sun through the summer.

Review by LynseyI find this just right for a natural, but evened out look. It covered my blemishes, and lasted throughout the day at work. I can see an improvement in spot outbreaks and my skin doesn’t seem to be getting clogged with wearing make-up all day. I feel like my skin can breathe.(Posted on 07/05/2015)

Review by Carolfrom my daughter, aged 16 :) I was excited when Mum said she would order me the make-up and eyeliner, I was already out of foundation and wanted some for the weekend :) When the box came, I loved the packaging of the make-up, a little black box perfect for my pocket or bag.It has a little silver elastic to keep it closed and stop it going all over your bag. It's kind of like between a liquid and a powder, it says baked powder foundation and goes on really easy. It covers well, and has a nice sheen, great for parties, but not heavy at all, I couldn't feel it on my face. The liner was great too, flowed easily on, I don't have to press it or go over it, it lasts really well. It doesn't make my eyes sting like some of the other ones I have used. Better than the London look ;)(Posted on 24/01/2015)
One thing I would have liked better, would be a thicker sponge applicator in the make-up box, I used my own instead of the one that came with it.
Overall, I loved both of the products and think they would make really nice presents for Christmas or stocking fillers for someone my age especially, you can never have too much makeup in your stash. :)

Review by eKomi UserThis is a lovely product. It is a very light powder does not give masses of coverage and has a definate "coloured shimmer"(don't be put off by that its not intense colour) to it so it may not be what oily skin wants.My fair, dry and sensitive skin doesn't need alot of coverage so this product is ide(Posted on 04/08/2010)
