Smoky Mountain Minerals Review

I love a natural look but don’t always want to have a bare face so my favorite make up is mineral make up. In my search to find the best mineral make up, I discovered Smoky Mountain Minerals which has a full line of mineral make up that is made of the finest quality ingredients and is very affordable for every budget too.

If you are new to mineral make up then I would suggest a Mineral Kit which conveniently puts together all of the products that you need for easy application. My personal reasons to use mineral make up is that it is made of pure, natural minerals. There are no fillers, perfumes, oils or additives. As a skin cancer survivor, it is important to me to only use products that are free of chemicals and preservatives too. Mineral make-up also has a natural sunscreen of SPF 15 too. What makes Smoky Mountain Minerals an excellent brand of mineral make up that is different from the rest? I learned that Smoky Mountain Minerals does not contain Bismuth Oxychloride which can cause “itching and redness” and is an ingredient in other leading national brands of mineral make up.

Smokey Mountain Minerals applies effortlessly and I loved the coverage that it provided. It does not look as if I am wearing makeup but gives my skin a polished look with a touch of natural color. I have a light to medium skin tone and found the perfect mineral foundation for me in “Medium Beige”. To apply the minerals I simply dipped the brush into a small amount of mineral foundation, swirled, tapped and applied to my face. I then added just a touch of the medium concealer around my dark circles under my eyes and then added a touch of Vision Blush and Bronzer (I LOVE this bronzer!) to add color. For days that I don’t really want or need to apply make-up, I just used the Be Flawless Veil minerals to my face after moisturizing and really love the way it makes my skin light up.

One product I really want to mention is the Kabuki Buffer Brush which is truly the best mineral brush that I have ever used from any product line. It is soft yet seems to hold the minerals so that it applies to the skin perfectly. I was very impressed with the affordability of this brush too at only $14.95 (normally retails for $24.95!)

My favorite product that I tried from the line is the Lip Care and Repair Treatment. This lip repair is naturally derived and uses beeswax to “nourish and replenish” lips. My own lips were cracked and dry after a particularly cold winter in Florida and after using the Lip Care and Repair Treatment for four applications, my lips were soft again. It is not sticky or greasy and leaves my lips feeling soothed.

Overall, I was very impressed with Smoky Mountain Minerals and I think the prices are fantastic because it is very affordable and the quality is excellent. There are products suitable for every skin tone and skin type and there is a full range of foundations, blush and bronzers, veils and concealers, eye products and lip products. You are invited to visit the Smoky Mountain Minerals website to find the perfect mineral kit for you!
