Beautiful Movements Cosmetics


Beautiful Movements cosmetics

If you've been a reader since the start you'll be aware that I used to be a dancer. Admittedly I use that term quite lightly: I was in the university dance team and whilst I did take part in competitions I stuck mainly to the performance side of things, and began to step aside as the team got bigger and some serious talent began to move into the ranks. 

But no matter how long you've been reading, you'll probably be quite unaware that I used to be a massive fan of - wait for it - The Pussycat Dolls. And by fan I mean I could name the members who weren't Nicole Sherwhatsherface. In fact during my dancing years my inspiration was Kimberley Wyatt, (who was regularly described in YouTube comments as 'the hot blonde one') and I'd always intently watch out for her in music videos totally ignoring the one everyone else could name...

So when it was announced that Ms Wyatt had teamed up to be the face a cruelty-free make-up company which was also based out of my home city of Aberdeeen, those fan girl feels creeped up all over me. But my list of brands to try is abnormally lengthy, so I never quite got around to purchasing anything but thankfully Beautiful Movements and Cruelty-free International sent me over a few things to try anyway! 

The first product in the collection is their Prime & Create Mixing Medium*. When I first received this I began using it as if it was a regular primer, erm no. This is actually something you mix in with your mineral foundation powder to create something a bit thicker and matt (because mineral make-up is typically not what you purchase when you want full coverage) and can be used to create liquid eyeliner out of eyeshadow. As a primer, it didn't work at all well (maybe cause it wasn't meant to?) but as a product which allows someone to create liquid foundation out of mineral powder it went down a storm. 

Another product I received was the Mineral Finishing Powder in Dewy Perfection*. The only other finishing powder I have used has been from Arbonne, which is annoyingly slightly too dark for me. The Dewy Perfection was the perfect shade for my face and blended right in. In terms of quality I would say it was...good. The Arbonne one was deifnetly of higher quality, but it is twice the price. 

The final product I received was the Beautiful Lips Lipgloss in Jewel. The swatches on the website make this look a lot more pink than it is in real life. When I tried this one what came out was the perfect day/work shade for me. It doesn't differ that far from my natural lip colour but having a slick of this one them makes me a look a lot more polished and done up. However, as with most lip glosses the stay power isn't all that long, so remember to pop in your handbag!

I'd recommend this for you if: you love mineral make-up but wish you could have it in liquid form (and are also a Kimberley Wyatt fangirl). 

I wouldn't recommend this for you if: you want something very pigmented.
