One of the brand’s champions: Motives Dual Perfection Pressed Powder



First impression number one, the liquid powder mineral foundation. I love the texture of this, it’s self setting so I didn’t need to use powder over it. The shade “linen” is perfect for my skin tone and blends out easily.
I’d say this is a medium coverage foundation. It feels very soft on my skin and is perfect for sensitive people, this foundation is HYPOALLERGENIC and is SPF 15.

This foundation is only $24.95 (£16.11) and I think it is well worth the money!

IMPORTANT: if you do check it out, please be sure to mention that HEATHER SENT YOU! (That’s me) this sounds strange but it’s only because this is my summer job. Also, if you live outside America please message me for some details, motives do not ship outside of America just yet so separate arrangements need to be made personally to ensure you get your goods :)
