Jerome Alexander Magic Minerals*
A beauty product that balances out skin tone in a matter of seconds? That’s what Jerome Alexander Magic Minerals powder does. Jerome Alexander Magic Minerals powder is suitable for skintones, and promises to conceal & cover.
The packaging for Jerome Alexander Magic Minerals didn’t wow me, it looked like toy make-up but I reserved my thoughts until I opened it. It’s about how the actual product performs, right?!
The packaging of the product itself isn’t too bad at all. For £9.99, the set comes with a brush and a sponge pad which will both come in handy.
I wasn’t expecting much from the brush but it’s softer than I thought it would be, it hasn’t shed and it’s the right size for swirling it into the powder.
The Jerome Alexander Magic Minerals claims to be an all-in-one, a one-shade-suits-all type of powder. It contains foundation, concealer and colour correctors – all in one.
As the name of the product name suggests, it promises to work magic by covering blemishes, age spots, fine lines and balance out uneven skintones! The powder has tiny colour dots on it, each with it’s own purpose. They’re a bit on the tiny side so I’m rather dubious about it’s true performance – but here is what the brand claims each of the colour dots do:
- Pink brightens pale skin and gives a glowing radiants.
- Mint green corrects the colour in dull complexions and conceals blemishes and marks.
- Lavender helps camouflage yellow and sallow skin.
- Yellow covers up dark circles and discolouration.
The ultra fine micronised mineral powder offers a light coverage and airbrush finish. It doesn’t feel heavy on your skin and it doesn’t go on cakey either.
As it is a translucent powder, there is no colour to it. And the coloured dots look pretty but they’re so tiny, I’m not sure if they’re doing all that much?! It didn’t cover up my blemishes completely but covers redness, evens out my skin tone and sets my make-up.
It’s hard to think of this as a ~serious~ product when you see how it is packaged, but first impressions count! Especially in the beauty industry. However, after trying the product itself, I admit that it’s decent. In fact, for £9.99, it isn’t bad at all!
It isn’t a ground-breaking, new product, there are similar ones out there from the likes of Guerlain, Bobbi Brown, and Stila, but if you’re looking for something a little bit more purse-friendly, you might be interested in Jerome Alexander’s Magic Minerals.
I’ve also noticed that there are some reviews of this product floating around at the moment, they are doing the rounds. There’s a misunderstanding that this powder is natural and does not contain nasty chemicals. Obviously, the main ingredient is mineral oil (parraffinum liquidum) but on the ingredients, it also lists two forms of parabens, an artificial preservative.
