Product Spotlight: Ellana Mineral Blush in Happiness

 I've been a mineral makeup user since I was pregnant with my only daugther, Akisha. that was almost three years ago and until now, I still use mineral makeup. Mineral Makeup gives my skin a lot of benefits like decent oil-control, sun protection and the ability to heal imperfections. It also gives me an airbrushed finish that's not only photogenic, but naturally flaterring as well.

In my quest for my HG mineral makeup brand, I've tried different imported brands like Bare Escentuals and Lauress, drugstore brands like Maybelline and ELF and even the luxury brand Laura Mercier. Thus far, I find Ellana Minerals as my HG mineral makeup line that I still use it until now. Ellana Minerals was also the first mineral makeup brand that I tried and got hooked to.

My newest baby is Ellana Mineral Blush in Happiness, a light coral-rose shade with a matte finish. When I swatched it on my wrist, I saw some micro shimmers, but it disappeared like magic into a flawless matte finish. It's matte but it still gives dimension to my cheekbones.

The color is very natural, as if I just got out of the gym with flushed cheeks. It's not opaque, so it really looks very natural and flattering. I am NC30 for reference. Here's a closer look at Ellana Mineral Blush in Happiness:

The color is comparable to ELF Candid Coral and a bit close to NARS Deep Throat, only more on the pink side. A jar of this eye candy will last you more than a month of everyday use, so for its price, it's a steal.

What I like most about Ellana Minerals is that is available either online, through its resellers or its stall in SM Megamall and Makati on Fridays thru Sundays.
