After I finished my foundation, I applied some of the Monavé's white Serecite #04 Setting Powder. I wasn't sure of what to expect when I ordered it. However, I loved the effect it left of a sheer, but delicate glow that allowed my foundation to come through. Seriously, I had transparent loose powder that was darker in color that made me look white, but their Serecite Setting Powder gives such a gorgeous finish without any flakiness or that dusty look that loose powders can often leave even after careful blending. This is just a fabulous must have powder!
I choose one of Monavé's Semi-Matte Blushes in Silky Garnet #218. This was a pretty shade, a pink-plum with a slight gleam. The blush looked natural and gave definition without needing much either. Next time, I may experiment with a lighter shade with more of that sexy gleam.
One of my ultimate favorite Monavé products was Rosemary Shea Butter Deep Treatment Hair Conditioner. There are so many things to love about this product. The bottle with its pump made it easier to use for one. Another was the product's herbal scent permeated the air almost like it had aromatheraphy benefits once I worked a small amount into my hair. I left this product on my freshly washed hair, applied styling product, and then pulled out my blow dryer.
By the time, I finished with my hair it was gleaming and ultra soft, even with styling product!
Even after several hours in hot weather when wearing this makeup, I still looked fresh unlike any of my non-mineral cosmetics. Honestly, I definitely want more from Monavé! Trust me, you will love this company and their award-winning quality products as well!
*Disclaimer: This is my own honest opinion. No money was exchanged. All I received were free products so I may make an opinion.*
