ELES Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder

The ultimate compact to brighten any skin tone

We all want to look our very best all the time, every time.

Unfortunately, even the best of us have lack lustre days when we are left searching for luminousity to help dull skin. If you are nodding to these notions, ELES has the product FOR YOU! 

ELES Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder in Flush of Pink.

This oil-free, hypoallergenic shimmering powder contains jet milled pigments to give skin a velvety smooth texture. An array of shimmering tones meld effortlessly together to brighten and highlight any complexion ensuring radiant skin all day long. The powder helps to protect and condition skin while locking in moisture ensuring skin remains hydrated throughout the day. It also allows your skin to "breathe" freely whilst shielding against age aggressors in our daily environments.

ELES' Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder is enhanced with Vitamins A, C & E for added antioxidant benefits. The skin-safe formula is paraben free and contains no chemical 'nasties' or potential irritants, such as fragrance, talc, oil, and dyes. This ELES product is recommended for all skin types and even post operative skin, so you can feel assured it is ultra-gentle and skin friendly.

The ELES Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder comes in two separate shades:

Flush of Pink & Peaches & Cream.

I received the ELES Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder in Flush of Pink. This product has quickly become a staple in my daily face routine. Using it as a final step to highlight the high-points of my face, it helps add radiance and a subtle flush of pink to my complexion. I feel the multi-faceted shading of this product brightens up my skin tone instantly, giving my skin a velvety, smooth, and healthy appearance. 

The ELES Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder is very reminiscent of the much loved Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick creations. I would loved to see ELES release even more gorgeous shades to choose from!
To apply, ELES recommends using a powder or blush brush, stroke or swirl brush across the compact, picking up all shades. I find precise application a breeze using the Sigma Tapered Blending E40 Brush pictured below. With this brush I am able to choose specific colours to apply to a chosen area. Be it all over the face, cheeks, bridge of the nose, or the decollete. The ELES Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder is perfect for all.

Perfect application can be achieved with the Sigma Tapered Blending E40 Brush.

ELES Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder RRP: $101.50


ELES Mineral  Foundation Powder in 01Nude

The ELES Mineral Foundation Powder is a hypoallergenic pressed powder foundation that works as a translucent powder or a build-able coverage foundation. Natural, light reflective properties found in the ELES Mineral Foundation Powder create a soft, diffused finish, camouflaging imperfections such as redness & scarring. The powder easily adjusts from sheer to rich, more opaque coverage & is available across 10 shades.

ELES' Mineral Foundation Powder is highly compatible with common skin concerns and sensitivities.  Again, this ELES product contains NO chemical 'nasties'. Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide provides the wearer with a chemical-free sunscreen of SPF 15. This naturally shields the skin against damaging ultra-violet light, while Vitamins A, E and C condition the skin.

The ELES Mineral Foundation Powder comes in a convenient and ultra sleek silver compact with built in mirror & application sponge. It has everything you need for on-the-go-application and is a delicate light-weight powder, almost giving that "naked" feeling to your face makeup.

Sleek & stylish mirrored silver packaging

I use this powder as a translucent setting powder over my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. Applied with the sponge applicator or a face brush it is perfect to set makeup and prevents me from the 'afternoon oily t-zone blues'.  

At the moment I am using my elf Powder Brush for simple 'all-over' powder application.

ELES Mineral Foundation Powder SPF 15 RRP: $64.25

ELES Brow Blender Pencil in 01 Blonde

Get WOW brows in seconds!
The ELES Brow Blender pencil is my holy-grail eyebrow product! 

I have blonde brows and it proves impossible finding pencils light enough due to my light tresses. Hallelujah! The ELES Brow Blender pencil offers a practical, precise, powdery brow definer delivering perfect results for me in seconds.

The all-in-one ELES Brow Blender pencil creates soft, matte, natural looking colour. The cap has a built-in brush for blending and shaping your brow. This Mineral-oil free product can be used dry for a soft matte look or wet for more intense brows. It is a long wearing formula, meaning it won't smudge or fade.Although the colour range is small, the build-ability of the product allows it to suit all shades of brow, from light blonde to dark brunette beauties.

In application, I have found a light feathery technique works best for light application. Then, a quick brush through with the eyebrow spooley at the end of the pencil and you are ready to go! 

ELES Brow Blender Pencil RRP: $42.00

I can honestly say that I love all of the ELES products I have reviewed. The products have effortlessly incorporated into my daily makeup routine. In the picture below, I am wearing ALL 3 ELES products out to lunch on my birthday for a radiant daytime look.

The verdict! I have to give ALL 3 ELES products a strong 5-star rating! The products are flawless in creation, application, and the results are just divine. 

Rating: / 5

    1. I whole-heartedly agree with you Betzy! :) The packaging and the product are just outstanding! I look forward in exploring more of their makeup range. Take care,

  2. Fabulous review Krystal. I totally agree about the ELES range. I have loved everything that I had tried of their range and if I had to pick a favourite I think that I would choose their blushes. They are highly pigmented and last all day. I own three of them now and they are on high rotation.

    1. Thanks for your kind words Kate! Their blushes are definitely beautiful products :) The pigmentation is out of this world. Great to hear from you! Looking forward to having a good beauty catchup at ABC2013.

      take care,
