The product I’m going to write about is my ultimate must have. It is called Bellapierre and it is a 5 in 1 Compact Mineral Foundation. The 5 properties the product can be used as are a Concealer, SPF, Foundation, Finishing Powder and Setting Powder. The foundation is great because it is good for your skin since the minerals allow your skin to breathe and also gives great coverage if like me your prone to spots or acne scarring. The product I use is the compact version but it’s also available in a loose powder version. What I love is that it comes with a great colour chart so it’s easier to find a shade that fits every race. My shade is Maple.
It’s a little pricey at £39.99 but I find that it lasts long since I tend not to need to reapply since the coverage is so effective. It blends in with my skin colour effortlessly. I occasionally breakout with spots which leave me with acne scarring which I hate. So the way I use this product is that I apply a little powder directly onto the scar first as a concealer. Then I apply the whole foundation over it. It really covers the scarring and blends in very effectively without causing irritation to sensitive skin. I’m always self conscious about acne scars left behind so I love how much coverage I get with this foundation. I’ve found products I have used in the past left a cakey texture or greyish colour but this works well with my skin tone. I have been using this foundation for years and it is my favourite product.
