If you're new to mineral makeup, you should know that Ellana Minerals is made of high cosmetic grade pigments, it's paraben-free, oil-free, does not contain unnecessary fillers, binders, and fragrance, and free from unhealthy nano particles.
Last week's blogger launch was held at Rastro in Burgos Circle where we were given a peek at the new reformulated line with packaging illustrated by top Pinay illustrator, Soleil. *Kira faints*
I always found loose powders somewhat cumbersome to bring around, so I mostly left my Ellana powder at home and touched up mid-day with another product. Good thing the awesome folks at Ellana decided to repackage some of our favorites and encased them in compacts! Woohoo!
|Soleil's illustrations are so pretty and full of life!|
Okay, apart from the makeup I was also terribly giddy to meet Soleil Ignacio because I secretly stalk her on Instagram. Well, it's not so secret now, haha, as I actually told her at the launch that I stalk her everyday (how embarrassing). Soleil is one of the country's top lifestyle illustrators. Louis Vuitton, Ayala Malls, and several prestigious magazines have commissioned her work.
And so, I just had to have a photo! Thank you, Liz, for introducing me :)
Okay back to swatching ;)

Intensive Blend Loose Foundation (P460/ P330 for the refill)
The Intensive Blend is ideal for oily and troubled skin due to its superior coverage and oil-absorbing properties.
Translucent high-definition powder that sinks seamlessly into any skin tone, smoothening and prepping skin.
11 coffee-inspired shades with a velvet finish, now in a convenient compact for easy transport.
A powerful combination that moisturizes as it conceals unevenness and fine lines.
Illuminating coverage that blots out the shine while enhancing a natural glow.
We were all invited to try the new makeup and I was given a full-sized pot to take home! I shall review it soon.
