Mineral makeup was all the rage when I first started blogging back in 2007, and it seems it is here to stay. Everyone is developing mineral based makeup and Sonia Kashuk is no exception. I have loved all of the other new products I've tried from her Target line, but I'm not as crazy about these blushes. The Shimmering Loose Mineral Blushes are SUPER sheer. They maybe should be called highlighting or "beautifying" powders as I wouldn't really use them as blush alone. They can be used all over the face to create a slight shimmer and add glow to the complexion or highlight your cheek bones, etc. They are very finely milled powders, so the quality for the price seems very high. They come with a cotton puff, but I always apply them with my big blush brush. Maybe the puff gives you a bit more color. I will keep both shades, Angelica, a pale baby pink and Fairy, a warm peachy pink, in my makeup case for times when I need an extra tiny bit of shimmer.
