Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder Review and Swatches

I've worn makeup since I was twelve-years-old, but my routine has always been pretty basic. Things changed six months ago when I decided to finally step up my makeup game. 

One of the first things I did to take my look to the next level was buy my very first highlighter: Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder ($18).

Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder is a shimmering, ivory rose loose powder that leaves your skin radiant and bright. I was thrilled the first time I brushed it on: I looked more awake, my complexion had a "lit from within" glow, and my previously non-existent cheekbones were coaxed into visibility.

In addition to being beautiful, Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder is an all-natural, vegan product manufactured with environmentally sustainable practices. The simple ingredients list only includes silica and wild rose extract, followed by a smattering of five other minerals like mica and zinc.

Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder is on the cooler side of the color spectrum, but the pearly pink color includes hints of golden peach that make it wearable for both warm and cool skin tones. 

Make the most of Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder's subtle shimmer by brushing it on the high planes of your face to catch the light -- cheekbones, forehead, temples, and the cupid's bow of your top lip.

I've tried many other highlighters since my first encounter with Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder, but I'm glad I started with this one. Liquid formulas in particular can be difficult to blend and challenging for beginners. This super soft powder is easy to quickly brush on and still get a natural, professional look.

With its pretty subtle shine and natural formulation, Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder deserves a high recommendation for makeup novices and pros alike.

  1. ooo, where do you buy this? and do you put it on top of foundation or just plain? I'm VERY basic with the makeup (like, concealer under the eyes, blush, 1 color of eyeshadow/eyeliner, and mascara. ;-)

    1. Hi AJ! You can buy this from Sephora, Korres' website or Amazon. If you check out the Amazon link above, it gets shipped from Sephora but you can get two-day shipping if you have Amazon Prime :)

      I usually wear it on top of foundation. Some days I wear powder instead of liquid foundation, and it works well with that. I think it could be worn without foundation though, you only need a small amount and you can blend it out to look quite natural.
