Reader Colleen Burkill recently wrote to me about a rare skin complaint she currently has, in essence an allergy to sunlight that causes a red rash which, as you can imagine, is fairly distressing for her. I recommended Bellapierre Mineral Cosmetics because they are completely 100% pure mineral and therefore very gentle on lots of skin complaints. This is what Colleen had to say about the brand.
Aly, I thought I’d drop you a quick email to let you know how I’m getting on with the makeup you recommended. I actually invested in the Bellapierre mineral foundation which is fab. I can’t rave about this enough, I sweated my way through Zumba and my make up was still in place, as if I’d just applied it! I also love the fact that you only need one product which acts as your base and powder – can’t thank you enough for introducing me to this brand. I was that impressed, I invested in a powder blush – again brill product that lasts all day and comes in a great range of colours.
Bellapierre also has an offer at the moment where you get 3 eyeshadow pigments, 2 eye shadow applicators and a base (concealer) all for 25 quid – considering the eyeshadows alone cost 12 quid – this is a major scoop! So I invested in this also.
I know you are familiar with the product, but I’m really impressed by the versatility of it – especially the pigments. Where, simply by adding water you can: intensify the colour or use as a liquid eyeliner; mix with the base and matt pigment; mix with Vaseline or lipgloss to create a lipstick; and, mix with clear nail varnish to create your very own nail colour – impressive stuff.
Anyhow, a big thank you for your advice – absolutely love the brand!
