Each season ELES Mineral Makeup launches in an amazing new makeup look, and this winter the theme is The Big Smoke, which is all about soft, sultry and city chic. Make sure to also check out the autumn look here.
I have been lucky to be sent a few of the components from this look, so here are my thoughts on the ELES Mineral Matte Blush in Adobe* and the Super Gloss in Pomegranate*;

What They Say:

Mineral Matte Blush in Adobe: Matte pigments fused with the pearlescence of minerals impart a modern “matte glow”. This revolutionary, skin-smoothing blush floats over skin to impart a soft, imperceptible finish while deflecting light away from flaws. Free of chemical “nasties” it allows skin to “breathe” freely while natural minerals shield against age aggressors.

RRP $45.00 (3.4g) – Available from ELES Mineral Makeup, and select stockists

Super Gloss in Pomegranate: An ultra-brilliant formula that delivers transparent shine with sensuous colour. Enriched with vitamins A & E to soothe and protect dry lips while delivering a beautiful transparent shine.

RRP $33.75 (11.4g) – Available from ELES Mineral Makeup and select stockists

What I Say:

I have previously been so lucky to try several other products from the ELES product range, and they all remain some of my most reached for items as I am so in love with all of those products as their quality is simply second to none so they are such a joy to use and wear.
Some of the products that I in particularly love is the Signature Quad in Naturalist, and the Mineral Blush in Coral Sun, and of course not forgetting the amazing nail polishes.
And these new products are no exception.

The Mineral Matte Blush in Adobe applies and blends so easily giving you a natural flushed look with a nice matte look with just enough sheen to make a difference and give you a nice glow, and without being over the top. The colour Adobe is a lovely pale but dusty warm apricot shade that is perfect for giving pale winter cheeks a bit of life and colour. And although I personally suck at it, the shade is perfect too to contour and define the cheek bones, when used on the lower part of your cheek bone, in connection with other ELES Blushes used on the apples of your cheeks.

The blush is so high in rich pigments and minerals that the colour payoff is incredible, and you can get anything from just a sheer wash of colour, or due to the rich pigments, also easily build up the colour to a more intense look. And the blush simply stays put all day, without fading or sliding.
I absolutely adore this Adobe shade, and it is a refreshing change, although I do think that nothing will ever replace my beloved ELES Coral Sun blush!

The Super Gloss in Pomegranate is the perfect way to finish off any winter look, as it simply leaves the lips so moist, hydrated and voluminous.

The colour pomegranate is a lovely transparent pink shade that looks so lovely on the lips and would suit any skin tone, and is as perfect to use during summer as it is to liven up a pale winter face. And while it is transparent it still offers sufficient colour to wear on its own, while it also adds a lovely shine when used on top of a lipstick.

The lipgloss is enriched with vitamins A & E to keep your lips nourished and soft, and moisturised and protected from the chilly winter winds. It comes in a sqeezy tube with an angled nozzle which makes it quick and easy to apply.

It is a little more expensive than most lipglosses, but believe me, it is so lovely to wear, that you won’t mind spending that little bit extra.

Once again ELES has managed to impress me with their beautiful high quality products. If you haven’t yet tried any of the products, I highly recommend that you check them out!
