I wanted to post about a product I have only just discovered despite having owned it for years. As one of my new year’s resolutions, I wanted to stop being lazy in the products I use, and work my way through the plethora of products I have outstanding.
I was gifted this beautiful compact when it came out as a limited edition product in 2006 and kept it fully sealed as I thought it was too good to use. I can’t believe I did this now.
This is one of the most beautiful products I have ever used, and I am so annoyed I did not snap up more of these when they were on sale. The quality is beautiful: the powder is finely milled, easily blendable, with wearable shades that can be used on their own or together to create your desired effect.
At the moment, I am using each shade individually. The bronzer works as a great contour product for cheekbones, and the soft brush is a good quality and makes it easy to blend. The mix of shimmer and non-shimmer products means you can use the lighter shades as a highlighter on the brow bone. Also when you sweep across the whole compact, you get a lovely illuminating powder effect, rather than full on shimmer.
The packaging also helps makes the product – the zig zag stripe pompoms on the accompanying pouch add to the fashion credentials of this compact, whilst inside you discover the unmistakable signature Missoni pattern. Also, I love that it doesn’t smell of the old Missoni fragrance, which was too sweet and chocolatey for my liking.
Do you have a beauty regret?
