Painted Earth Mineral Silk Radiance Powder in Seychelles Review

 Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Painted Earth is one of those very special companies that remains uncompromisingly devoted to making high quality luxury products that rival the quality of department store brands, but with a commitment to earth-friendly and human-friendly ingredients.

To say that the Painted Earth Mineral Silk Radiance Powder in Seychelles is gorgeous in the compact is a supreme understatement, but it is likewise stunning on the skin.
Subtle Luminosity. Sheer Perfection.  Painted Earth's Mineral Silk Radiance Powder illuminates and brightens the complexion in a single sweep. Micro-Minerals soften fine lines and imperfections and add a natural, healthy glow to skin. Formulated with Argan Oil to hydrate skin and help set foundation and blush. Rice Silk helps absorb excess shine and imparts a smooth, silky finish, while Multi-Mineral Complex and antioxidant Vitamin A, C and E help balance and protect skin from environmental aggressors.

Seychelles is one of the most silky smooth ultra finely milled highlighting powders that I have tried to date. The texture is so creamy and lovely to the touch that it effortlessly glides across the skin. It imparts the most beautiful ethereal glow imaginable, and lasts all day long on my combination skin. This floral masterpiece is made up of individual petals in pale pink, peach, and lavender leaning pink against a golden peach ground. The resultant color, when swirled together, is a delectable neutral pinky peach. Of course one can modify the color by picking up more pigment of a preferred shade, but the end result is always gorgeous. While this is intended as a highlighter, people with fair skin can also enjoy this treasure as an illuminating blush as well. Seychelles imparts a soft-focus glow that neither settles into pores, nor accentuates fine lines--thereby making it an immensely flattering powder on the skin. Unlike some highlighting powders that tend to employ far too much glitter, Seychelles remains sophisticated and understated with its otherworldly glow. In short, it is absolutely and positively stunning in every way!

Overall assessment: Seychelles is so gorgeous that I am fairly certain that I will hit the pan this summer! A+
