Face Powder in 'Silk Glow Light' & Concealer in 'Ivory' by Earthnicity Mineral - Review & Swatches

I have tried and reviewed products by Earthnicity Minerals in past and the quality, quantity and results were really nice. This time, I am reviewing their Face Powder, which for is more of a highlighter and their Powder Concealer, which can be a dream come true for so many of you. Find out how!

Face Powder & Concealer:
They say: About Face Powder: 'Silk Glow Finishing Powder is an ultra-light translucent powder with a slight pinkish tone. This remarkable powder gives your skin a silky look and feel. It has a slight sheen/shimmer to it, to give your skin a lovely glow. The light-diffusing particles helps soften the look of fine lines, wrinkles and large pores, giving your complexion a flawless, airbrushed-to-perfection finish. Dust it all over your face with a powder brush after applying foundation, or use it just as a highlighter on your cheekbones and eyes.'

About Concealer: 'This is a light-toned concealer suitable for fair or light complexions. It can be used to cover up spots or blemishes, or as an under eye concealer, or even as a base for eye makeup.'

Both of these products are powder based and according to the company, these products are so safe that you can sleep in them. They sent me sample sized jars that come in Sample Kits. Full sized jar of Face Powder carries approx. 4.5g of product and comes in a 30ml sifter jar. Full sized jar of Concealer carries approx. 2.5g of products and comes in a 10ml sifter jar. Face Powder comes in three different shades and Concealer comes in five different shades.

Everything came nicely packed in bubble wrapping. Nothing was broken or spilled at all.

Pros & Cons:

Face Powder in 'Silk Glow Light':

Pros:

  • Nicely pigmented.
  • Blends really easily.
  • Contains really fine shimmer that gives a nice and smooth glow to the face.
  • Multi-purpose product; can be used on full face, body, highlighter for face and eye brows or as an eye shadow as well.
  • Stays for more than 6 hours in humid weather so stays for really long hours in smooth weather.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Good for acne prone and sensitive skin as well.
  • Works well with fingers, dry sponge or brush.
  • Non irritant.

Cons:

  • This product is meant to be for full face use but I feel like it gives a way too shimmer and the face looks too glowy and any tiny bumps on the face becomes visible when the light hits on them.

Concealer in 'Ivory':

Pros:
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Works great for under eyes and for the rest of the face.
  • Gives sheer to full coverage.
  • Gives matte finish with a velvety and silky feel.
  • Blends really easily.
  • Works well with fingers, sponge or concealer brush and even with a fluffy/blending brush.
  • Perfect product for oily skin types.
  • Does not crease at all even after 4-6 hours. (Did not test this product in humid weather for more than 2 hours, but it stayed fine for that time.)
  • Stays for whole day but tones down just a tiny bit which is hardly visible.
  • Good for all skin types.
  • Good for acne prone and sensitive skin types.
  • Non irritant.
Cons:
  • I did not find anything negative about this product.

Overall Experience & Recommendation:
Face Powder is a really nice product and I am absolutely in love with it. However, I do not use it on my full face as I noticed it enhances those tiny bumps on my forehead and the face looks uneven. I use it to highlight my brow bone, inner corner of eyes, cheek bones, bridge of the nose, cupid bow and sometimes high points of necks. I have recently used this product on a model for a video shoot and the result was amazing. The shoot was outdoor mostly in direct sunlight and this product stayed put all that time.
Concealer is also good, unfortunately it was not my exact shade and gives a bit pale tone to my under eyes. But who says you cannot use a product if it's not your exact shade? I apply this concealer and just dab a tiny bit of peachy pink blush and the overall result looks natural. I have tested it alone for review purpose, even though it looked horrible =P I managed to go out anyways. *phew those daring moments* even my husband was giving me funny looks.
Back to the review, this product is really suitable for people who need extra coverage for under eye circles and are sick of creasing because of oily skin.
Always remember one thing, whenever you use any type of product, especially foundations, primers, lotions and concealers. Always always give them a few seconds to sink into the skin. Sometimes a product looks odd as in the color does not match perfectly or it creases suddenly. Give it a few seconds to sink in and then blend smoothly. It will stay there for longer than usual and will not crease until or unless your skin is way too oily and you are not using any face primer.
Overall, I am happy with both of these products but I am super-in-love with the Face Powder, it won't be wrong if I call it the 'sexiest highlighter I have ever used'. =)
Do give these products a try if you think you will like them as I did. Earthnicity Minerals say that their products are perfect for sensitive and acne prone skin types as well and that they are really safe for everyday use. I did not have any side effects or break outs so far and I hope it will work fine for you guys as well.

    1. I also didn't expect good results from a powder concealer as I used to use cream concealers only. But it worked nice and above that, it is really good for oily skin types. :)
