What I'm Loving: Silk Naturals Glow in Cherub Review, Photos, Swatches

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Silk Naturals is one of my favourite indies, but I've been neglecting them lately! I recently dug out my jar of Cherub, a gorgeous baby pink mineral "glow."

"Cherub is our shimmery sheer pink glow. It's not a huge amount of color- but rather just a fun sheer wash.
If you're looking for something special to wear on Friday nights- a little something to use when you want to look extra special- give a glow a try.
Glows add shimmer and radiance- you can wear them all over your face and body, or just little touches here and there. They're also extra fun worn on your decolatage or shoulders. Mineral glows are completely sheer, and blend beautifully. It's more of a "Did you lose weight" or "Did you get a hair cut" kind of effect- not a scary Tin-Man look." -Silk Naturals

I love, love, love this. I use it on my cheekbones, browbones, and inner eyes to highlight. A little goes a long way, which is great because a while ago I accidentally dumped most of the jar out. Such is the danger of using loose makeup!

 The colour leans more pink (as you can see in the next swatch), but here you can see how it shines in the light. It's shimmery but not so much that it gives a disco ball look.

A 10-gram jar with 1 1/2 teaspoons of product costs $7.50USD, and sample 5 gram jar with 1/8 tsp will run you $1.25. I do highly recommend trying out a sample of Cherub or another one of Silk Naturals' Glows (there are seven in all!) 

Ingredients: Mica, silk powder, silica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides
