There are mineral make-ups and there are superior mineral make-ups. Sheer Cover Studio is new and leading the way with a range of minerals that do a superb job for those of us lucky to have good skins. But it excells in giving a perfect complexion to those who have problems, even serious ones like facial scarring, birth marks and adult acne. And its no wonder that it is flying off the shelves. It comes in three shades – light/medium, medium/tan and tan/dark – but the secret is in the blending technology. So you pick the one nearest to your own and it works with the skin to create the perfect colour match.
How does it do this? Well it has special optical fibres that pick up your skin tone and reflect it to ensure a perfect match.
We couldn’t wait to try this one out. So we tried and tested the Sheer Cover Studio Deluxe VIP Kit (£59.85 ) which contains the following:
• Perfect Shade® Mineral Foundation (4g)
• Conceal & Brighten Trio (3.7g)
• Sun-kissed Bronzing Minerals (4.5g)
• Lengthening Mascara (8.5ml)
• Lash Extending Fibers (0.5g)
• plus 3 free makeup brushes worth over £50
And true to its word, it does what is says it does and more. Our mature tester, Anna Morris, has a few thread veins and has a tendency towards redness. She started out using the Conceal & Brightening Trio on the problem areas. “Great reat coverage but not caked-on” was what she said. She then followed it with the mineral foundation. “I really like the way it gave me a soft and dewy glow with only a light touch of everything.And it stayed put without me having to retouch for the rest of the day.”
Anna award this kit 9/10 for delivery and performance.
