Jerome Alexander Magic Mineral Powder – Beauty Review

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.

I’d say that this powder would work best on those with oily skin and a sallow complexion. Jerome Alexander Magic Minerals is available from Argos, Amazon and HighStreetTV for £9.99.

  1. The little pastel dots in the powder look so pretty! I definitely agree that the outer packaging doesn't look great, but the compact itself looks pretty nice! xo

  2. Those colourful dots are adorable. I love colourful stuff, which is why I spent a ridiculous amount of money on my Guerlain meteorites perles. Don't tell my mother she'll kill me. 😛

  3. Oh wow no that packaging is tragic. It looks like play makeup – so I totally get your griping! First impressions are key in this industry and someone needs to change that fast! Otherwise, it doesn't sound like a bad little compact, affordable and multipurpose. Plus the actual powder looks quite cute with the pastel dots. I might try it out at some point!

  4. I agree with you completely, packaging is very important, it's what grabs your attention. If I saw this in the shops I'd probably just walk straight past it. I'm always a bit dubious of all-in-one products like this, like you say the flecks of colour are so tiny can they really be doing that much? 🙂 xx

  5. I’ve been intrigued by this after seeing it advertised on TV, I do have to agree I don’t like the way it has been packaged as it does look cheap 🙁 This does sound lovely though, I like that it helps to bright, even your skin whilst setting makeup 🙂 Fab review 🙂

  6. This was exactly the opinion I had, without even have tried the product. I'm not a fan of all-in-one products and products that are for all skin types. I think everyone is different and everyone has different issues, if you want to cover your blemishes you have this, if you want to cover the dark circles you have that – how can this be put everything in one product? It is a bit shady. Anyway thanks for your review! 🙂
