What is it about spring and summer that makes women want glowing skin? We always want to look fresh with perfect complexions, but there’s that added urge for something more every year as warmer weather approaches.
I came across Jemma Kidd Mannequin Skin Complexion Enhancer right at the time I was looking for that addition to my skin. Having thoroughly enjoyed other products from her line, I went ahead and bought it.
I love that it has a soft neutral gold tint. This makes it very easy for warm or cool tones to wear. It’s also sheer enough to flatter a variety of skin tones. It comes in a squeeze tube with the signature Jemma Kidd pink on black design. Simple, but very cute.
I’ve used this under a variety of products – full-coverage foundation, tinted moisturizer, luminous foundation – and it works well under each. I especially like it under Revlon ColorStay foundation for combo/oily skin because it adds the glow back to my skin that is normally lost with a full-coverage product. You can also used this without foundation, or under a powder but I haven’t tried either. I do love my liquid foundations!
When applying, only a small amount is required. I use my fingers and it blends very easily.
I’m having one of those moments where I wish I did video instead of photographs. I actually blended some product in next to the swatch. But it blends so well and the effect is so subtle that the blended swatch was only noticeable when I moved my arm. Fortunately, I caught it in a profile shot of my face.
This can be used as a highlight just on the cheeks or all over the face. It doesn’t look glittery in the sun as I was afraid it might. It just gives a soft natural luminescence. The desired look can be built up or toned down to suit your wants.
I’ve been wearing this almost every day since purchasing. I love that it is nourishing but doesn’t leave me feeling or looking greasy. I often wear it with Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Transparent Mattifier and layering the two works beautifully.
This is such a pretty and natural looking product that really enhances any face product. Definitely check it out if you’re looking for that added boost.
