Call me a sucker for buying products based on their names, but this contouring powder from Korres named Santorini is a dream! The Korres Magic Light Contouring Trio is a multipurpose product that combines: a weightless, light-diffusing powder to give the skin a soft focus, a sculpting powder to add shape and dimension, and brightening cheek glow all in one little compact. This powder mimics the magic light of Greece, bathing skin in a natural and flattering glow. Considering my dreams of one day visiting Greece seem like just a dream, this is as close as I will be getting for now. A miracle product to be honest.
I purchased the Korres Magic Light Contouring Trio powder recently through Beautylish and within two days my package had arrived. This was the first product I opened from my order because I was very intrigued by it. To my knowledge, the makeup side of the Korres brand is not easily available in Canada. When I spotted the beauty selection on Beautylish, I was opened up a whole new world of options and products. I had admired this product on the website for a while and finally decided to give into temptation and decided to made it mine.
My first impression was the absolutely beautiful packaging. The only downside to the packaging is that opening it is a bit tricky, but you can be sure that it will not open on its own while travelling anywhere. Besides the packaging, the powder itself is gorgeously embossed with a travel postage stamp type of design that I did not want to dare ruin. I was smart to go in with a duo fibre brush at first because this product is another one of those “a little goes a long way” and should be used light-handedly. I very lightly swirled my brush through the powder and then swept it around the outside edge of face, mostly where I would just apply my regular bronzer products.
I think this product could be a really nice blush and bronzer 2-in-1 product because it gives a really nice warmth to your face. I think Korres did an amazing job with the Magic Light powder and I can see this being a product I reach for on a daily basis. Again, if you name something after Santorini, I’m hooked. There was another shade named Mykonos available for this product which may work better either as a blush or on slightly darker skin tones because it was fairly peachy-pink toned overall.
Have you tried anything from the Korres beauty product range? Let me know in the comments below because I may need to pick up another item from them very soon.
