Philosophy The Supernatural You Make Me Blush Mineral Blush Duo Review

While away in California I ended up getting a little too toasty for my liking.  SPF’ing myself to death didn’t keep the warm sunny San Diego sun from blessing my medium fair skin with the kiss of death aka a golden glow.  No likey a tan of any kind.

My skin is finally adjusting back to it’s normal shade but it’s in the between stages which means dullness.   Lucky enough Philosophy took a hint from my Tips and Tricks for Bronze Application by combining a warm shade of bronze with a kiss of warmer blush to spice up my dull skin and bring back that golden glow from California.

Avon Smooth Minerals Review and Swatches

I’ve been purposely hanging on to the Avon Smooth Minerals Collection until the site had them in stock.  As I recall I reviewed some lip items a few months ago that weren’t available online and had to be purchased directly through a rep.  This caused for many e-mails asking, “but where can I get them if not online?”   I imagine everyone doesn’t have an Avon rep hanging out in their closet that they can bring out and order from you are wanting something….

See my mentality?

Point being I did wait until the collection was up and online until I hopped on board with my review so they are easily available now for your purchasing pleasure.

Jump ahead for my review!
