I've tried a lot of powders in my time, ranging from high street to high end and the only one Ive ever been happy with is Rimmels Stay Matte Translucent Powder, yep... a cheap as chips one! That was until I was sent PRIORI® Coffeeberry® Perfecting Minerals Finishing Touch.
PRIORI® is the first and only eco-friendly, Perfecting Minerals with CoffeeBerry® extract that protects and nurtures your skin without negatively impacting our environment! The line carries four products;
CoffeeBerry® Perfecting Foundations SPF 25
Perfecting Concealer SPF 25UVA 10, PA +++
"CoffeeBerry® Perfecting Minerals are 100% Natural, and the first and only skin caring mineral line that contains CoffeeBerry® extract, nature’s most potent anti-aging botanical, to fight free radicals and the causes of skin aging. CoffeeBerry® extract, the anti-aging and skin lightening agent that will keep your skin looking younger every day you wear them.
It is the ultimate perfecting mineral line that protects against both dangerous free radicals and the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. CoffeeBerry® Perfecting Minerals care for your skin around the clock."
Finishing Touch is designed to be applied on top of your minerals to set them in place for a stay-fresh look. CoffeeBerry® Finishing Touch claims to keep oily shine in check and has a natural, matte finish. Minerals in the product scatter light to supposedly diminish the appearance of fine lines, and pores seem invisible.
Although I don't use Mineral Foundation. I didn't see any reason why this product wouldn't work well over liquid foundation
The powder itself is pinkish in colour, which did make me wonder if it would alter the colour of my foundation in any way. However once its on the skin it is invisible.
Its incredibly lightweight and feels really silky soft when brushed onto my skin and the first thing I noticed was how the pores on my forehead disappeared! It blends into my skin so well, that it doesn't leave any hint of a powdery finish. It just makes my skin look flawless! As far as the claim "making skin look younger day by day" goes, I can't really comment fully because I have only been using the powder for a few weeks. I will provide an update in a couple more weeks though to let you know if in fact using this product has had an improvement on my skin.
My initial thoughts on this product are nothing but good. I love the way it sets my foundation, love the way it makes the pores on my forehead disappear and I love how it keeps me shine free.
