A few years ago there were only a couple of companies that produced pure mineral makeup, but now it has become so popular that the choices are endless. Its always confusing when it comes to buying the makeup thats right for you, which is the main reason I write my blog- to solve these problems for you!

So this week Its all about about Osmosis mineral makeup, something I have been testing on myself for the past month or so with impressive results. As with all mineral makeup it pays to read the ingredients to see if they are pure, so if the list begins & ends with the names of minerals, (rather than talcs & fillers) you know you are on the right track. Osmosis makeup is as pure as they come, loaded with all the right ingredients to create a perfect finish.

The range has everything that you need for your day to day makeup bag, but I have been most impressed by the Mineral pressed base. The coverage is fantastic & very buildable, so much so that you can create the effect of a full coverage foundation just by dusting on this powder. Some mineral powders can have a drying effect on the skin, but the Osmosis base creates a very creamy finish. I recommend that you moisturize your skin, then apply your favorite BB Cream followed by Osmosis pressed base. I use a soft fluffy brush- a little smaller than your usual blusher brush- for mineral powder application.

I have also being enjoying the Osmosis Mineral bronzer which is called ‘South Beach’. Im always raving on about bronzers being too orange or too sparkly, but this one is perfect as the colour is ideal for most skin tones, blending beautifully into the skin while adding a golden glow that looks natural (much like the Bobbi Brown version, my long time fave). Its also great as a natural eye shadow, just dust it over the brow bone to brighten up the eye area.

Osmosis also do an excellent Brow Gel that defines the brows as well as holding them in place. I have been using their fab little angle brush for this job & I have to say it rivals my favorite MAC brow brush that I have had forever! The other product that has impressed me is their eye pencil. I love mineral pencils & Im a fan of Jane Iredales as they have good density of colour, are soft & gentle on the eye, plus they last well- I have found the Osmosis version to be just as good if not better.

Osmosis has lots of other products in their range, mascara, blush, eye shadows & primer. They are all loaded with pure minerals & all highly recommended! You can find Osmosis in Auckland at Lucy & the Powder Room (Takapuna & New Market) and Elle Health & Beauty (Mt Eden)
