Not pale enough!

So CuteCosmetics is an awesome website, they stock eco, organic and cruelty free make-up, skincare, and make-up tools. Including vegan products. So definitely check them out if you are interested in organic or vegan products, they also do free shipping on all UK orders and their customer service is brilliant from my experience! So anyway on to the point I recently noticed that they sell tester pots of BM Beauty Mineral Foundation for £1.25, and they have eight shades to chose from. Now i've been wanting to try a mineral foundation for the longest time so I thought i'd give this a go.


Sorry for the image quality :s my camera doesn't like it when its grey and raining! Anyway I got the lightest shade which is Stripped from the Vanilla Rose collection, described as light with neutral undertones. First off let me say that this product is really nice, it applies really well and I really love the finish it gives and how it makes your skin feel. Its quite a matte finish but not so much as to make you look flat, and it feels so smooth and soft. So hats off to BM Beauty because the quality is lovely. However I will not be using this particular mineral foundation again....epic epic orange tideline occurred! It was not a good look and no amount of blending would get rid of it, fact is i'm far too pale for this which is such a shame because I really do like the product. I'll definitely be on the look out for an ultra pale mineral foundation and if anyone has any recommendations i'd really appreciate it! But i'd definitely recommend testing this product if you're looking for a mineral foundation with good coverage but i'd say definitely more for medium to dark skin tones!

  1. Hahaha aww! I have the exact same problem, I find it really hard to find foundations pale enough! For a couple of years now I've been using an Elizabeth Arden one which is technically for reducing wrinkles, but I was told it was the only one pale enough for me! x

    1. Ahh its so frustrating trying to find ones with decent coverage especially! Ooh I might have to have a look for that, I've never tried any Elizabeth Arden products so maybe I should give it go, and I guess its never too early to start with the wrinkle prevention :s haha! x

  4. Hi! Thanks so much for giving us a mention on your blog! It's a shame the BM Beauty wasnt pale enough, I would really recommend having a look at Lily Lolo on our site as they do some much paler shades & are great quality. We're looking into offering samples of these too. Porcelain & China Doll may be suitable xx Rachel (cutECOsmetics)

    1. Hi, oh no problem! I was looking at Lily Lolo today actually and think I will give it a try as Porcelain looks quite similar to a pressed powder I own so could be worth a shot! Thank you for the advice :). I think the samples are a great idea. Thank you for the follow as well xx
