Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a intimate beauty launch for Iman's latest foundation and seeing the amazing and stunningly beautiful model/mogul Iman, again (such a great treat!).
Iman explained during the presentation that the reason her company created this latest liquid mineral version of foundation IMAN Luxury Radiance Second to None Liquid Makeup & Brush Set, (Enriched with Minerals), was not to ride the "mineral cosmetics" bandwagon, but rather to create a foundation for all women of various skin tones (regardless of ethnic origin) that was light, provided coverage, healthy for skin and most importantly, provided professional-grade, makeup artist results - all for a reasonable price.
Well, I can say after seeing several models made up with the various shades in the line as well as having it applied on me that evening at the event, and then continuing to use for several days - mission accomplished! There are an impressive 8 shades in all, broken into 3 shade categories - Sand, Clay and Earth.
IMAN Luxury Radiance Second to None Liquid Makeup & Brush Set, has the texture of a heavier tinted moisturizer, but still keeps the light, silky feel. The coverage is simply amazing - it provides almost a satin like finish on skin which can be tailored to a sheer or medium coverage, gives it radiance and the color match (in my case, Earth 1), was perfect. The product is wonderfully pigmented, and it was so easy to apply with the very handy foundation brush, (included). The makeup glided on effortlessly, blended and set on my skin quickly.
The feel of the makeup on my skin after the initial application was also quite unique - it felt like my skin had been spritzed a bit with water - it was hydrated, moist (but not shiny), and the wear was fantastic - the color held true and there was no budging, running or flaking throughout the day. This is a perfect makeup for everyday wear, photos or for more dramatic makeup looks.
Whether you've never used the Iman line before, or even if you've used some of Iman's other foundation/makeup products, this is a must have foundation to add to your makeup kits. - RLB
