Susan Posnick ColorFlo Shimmer

Susan Posnick Colorflo Shimmer is a mineral foundation that comes in various shades. For your convenience it has a brush attached to it via which we can directly apply the foundation. I find this product great for travel or for touch ups as it removes the need of carrying extra products.

It is a mineral foundation containing an SPF of 26 which is beneficial to wear throughout the year. It is anti-bacterial, sweat proof and water resistant, also enriched with vitamins A & E

It is available in quite a few shades as seen below.

I have however tried out the one in Shimmer which means it is not a foundation but rather a highlighter/illuminator. 

I like to use this on the brow bone, cheekbones, nose bridge and collar bone. Would be gorgeous to use on the body too, especially as we see the party season coming soon. 

The ease of a brush accompanied with a highlighter makes life easier. I gently brush it across the high points of my face for an instant brightening effect. The brush delivers just the right amount. If during the night I want more coverage, I buff it in circular motions and it gives a lovely dewy effect on the face. 

It is pretty glittery in my opinion, so I have to buff it out using a kabuki, after which any obvious glitter is buffed out letting the glow show through effectively. The glow looks very much like the extremely dewy skin we often see on the ramp. An effect I quite like to mimic :) The 'glow' is what you want to achieve with such products, not glitter so buff, buff, buff...

The powder is suitable for sensitive skin, does not clog pores and is triple-milled to give a flawless finish on all skin types. I am a fan of liquid highlighters and my love for them continues but this is a good option if you find liquid hard to blend. 

I am assuming the foundation itself would give a dewy effect, so if you someone who's looking for this in a foundation, this would be your thing. I think I am fine using this product in highlighter or a bronzer form rather than a foundation. 

Have you tried Susan Posnick's range before?

The range is available from premium salons and spas nationwide.

I seem to remember Lancome doing something similar? I think the style of brush and delivery would be good for a highlighter, but I wonder how much coverage it would give for a foundation - the brush looks somewhat flimsy to me which would not be so good for foundation. Thanks for the post. Jan x
