|I adore Chanel's packaging! The Rouge Allure lipstick tube has a clever design: You push-in the bottom of the tube to open!|

|The Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation applies like a dream and makes the skin look so luminous! The formula is sheer however it is quite buildable and gives a smooth finish.|

Today, I am featuring Senna Cosmetics Mineral Mix Pressed Cover & Finish Foundation and her Secret Set Finishing Powder. Her powders are talc-free and fragrance-free. Both of these powders are finely-milled.
The first thing I loved about these powders was the packaging. Eugenia redesigned all of her packaging and they know come beautifully packaged in an elegant black box and the compact itself is dressed in black with a lacquered finish -- so beautiful and looks more upscale than her previous packaging.
I also love that there is a compartment to hold the sponge for touch-ups.
These powders are very finely-milled and the Secret Set Finishing Powder is translucent and barely noticeable on the skin. I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and I just love it. It does not build-up on your skin or look cakey. It helps keep the shine down on my oily/combination skin for about 3 to 4 hours.
The Mineral Mix Pressed Powder I chose was "Light" -- thinking I would be able to use it during the winter months, when I am not tan. Well, it is a little lighter than I had anticipated, but I think I will still be able to wear it under my bronzing powder. I wore the "medium" shade a few years ago and as I recall, her medium shade is much deeper than the light shade. The coverage is medium, so if you are looking for a powder with full-coverage, you may not be totally satisfied.
In closing, I am very pleased with both of these powders and you really can't go wrong with Senna Cosmetics. Eugenia is a pro and her products have to live up to her high standards.
