Tropic Pure Effects Beauty Booster £20 is SPF 20 and contains active minerals, superfruit complexes and vegetable derived Hyaluronic Acid. I’m wearing light/medium and I have to mention after a good shake of the bottle, the liquid seemed to blend with my skin tone like magic! It’s lightweight, incredibly moisturising and gives skin an airbrushed but radiant look. It’s not too shiny though like some other BB creams I’ve used and it neutralises redness incredibly well so it’s more like a Beauty Balm and a Colour Correcting cream in one! Don’t worry if you have oily patches as you can always add a light sweep of translucent powder in those areas as I did on my nose.


The Mineral Eyeshadow Palette in Wild Wisteria £18 contains Vitamin E, Chamomile, Baobab Oils and mineral actives which the enhances the pigmentation and makes the colour last longer. I’m using this purple based palette as I think it compliments my green eyes really well. I’m showing you a swatch as mineral pigments are notoriously difficult to capture. The purple is a lot more intense than it looks here.

I applied all of my eye makeup using the 100% Organic Sustainable Bamboo Dual-end Eyeshadow Brush £12 which I found to be incredibly soft for blending and also perfect for lining my eyes and angling it into the crease of my eye. Best brush I’ve ever used!


Are you still a foundation fan or have you switched to BB & CC creams?

These products were gifted to me by Tropic for review purposes, which does not effect my opinion. Honest as always!
