I don’t know about you, but when I love a company, I never want to just try a few things from their line – I want to try EVERYTHING from them! That could be the reason why my beauty stash is so large…. hmmm….
Well, I have slowly tried many Jane Iredale products over the years but had never tried their powder foundations (gasp!). Imagine my delight when they announced their Starter Kit which allows you to try 4 of their products (including 2 powder foundations)! Sweeeeet. AND, don’t forget to read until the end because I’m giving one away!
The Starter Kit comes with sample/travel sizes of:
- Smooth Affair Primer & Brightener
- Amazing Base SPF 20 Loose Mineral Powder
- PurePressed Base SPF 20 Mineral Foundation
- Pommist Hydration Spray
- Mini powder brush
- Cosmetic case with mirror
The Starter Kit comes in Light (Warm Silk), Medium Light (Warm Sienna), Medium (Golden Glow), Medium Dark (Latte), and Dark (Butternut).
I, of course, am Light since I am so pale and Warm Silk matches my NC15/BB3 skintone perfectly.
Like I mentioned above, for all of the makeup I have tried from Jane Iredale, I had actually never used their powder foundation before. After using each a few times, I have to say I really love both the loose and pressed powder. They both cover really well, and having that SPF 20 is definitely an added bonus. One thing I am particularly impressed about is how the powder wears throughout the day – it actually looks BETTER as the day goes on! I kid you not.
Sometimes powders can wear kinda funky on me throughout the day. After about 6-8 hours, they will settle into pores or lines – but these don’t (or at least, they haven’t yet). When you first apply, it looks like other powders in that it covers nicely and gives a soft look to the face. As the day goes on though, the powder must mix with my natural face oils or something because it starts to look better and even more natural-looking. No caking around my large pores, or settling around lines or bumps. It looks awesome. I’m in awe. And now I see why everyone has been raving about Jane Iredale’s powders all this time.
I already love the Smooth Affair and Pommist Spray, my previous reviews here and here. The included mini powder brush is nice for doing makeup on the go, but I probably wouldn’t use for every day since it is a little small. And I really love the cosmetics case! It’s really well made, and has a nice big mirror inside. Often times I throw extra cosmetics cases into the goodwill donation bag but I really love this one, I’m holding onto it.
To show you more about all that is included, here is a video with Jen and me! We also show you how to apply a full face of makeup in under 5 minutes using the products in the starter kit as well as other Jane Iredale makeup.
