As seen on TV JML Magic Minerals - Jerome Alexander

Thursday, 6 February 2014

As seen on TV products, they are always entertaining to watch.
I saw the JML Magic minerals and remember thinking that it was just too good to be true and with those type of things, if it looks too good to be true it probably is, and this product was just no different.

The Magic Minerals are essentially a pressed powder with flecks of colour in the pigmentation that claim to do all kinds of magic things such as:

❥ Conceal redness
❥Correct hyper pigmentation
❥Cover blemishes
❥Hide dark circles

The verdict is...
Well I don't want to spoil the ending for you, so I will ink the video below, but if you can't face wathcing it, skip along to the end where I'll so a quick summary for you

So, what is it all about?
The long and short of the situation is that it is a medium coverage pressed powder, similar to any other pressed powder on the market. The flecks of colour I do not believe truly impact how the product looks on your skin, but are there as an aesthetic feature, save yourself the fuss and buy any other pressed powder that you can get in stores and try for yourself before you buy.

The packaging is good, a sturdy compact with a generous sized mirror
❥ There is some element of coverage, but not a great amount

Smells cheap, like out of date makeup or toy makeup from little kits when you were maybe 8 years old
Needs a lot of work to layer up over and over which leaves a powdery finish on the skin and a 'caked' feel
Nothing different about it to any other pressed powder

Not suitable for all skin tones, I'm always 'ivory' on the foundation spectrum and this I can just about get away with for my skin tone but it does have a slightly yellow finish.
