Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder contains burnished rose, ivory rose, and gold rose reflective minerals. I use it as a highlighter on top of the cheekbones. To apply:
- Shake a little powder onto the lid
- Fold the sponge that comes in the package in half, flocked side up
- Press the edge of the sponge into the powder
- Tap the sponge onto the top of the cheekbones
- Run a fluffy brush along the top of the cheekbones to diffuse the powder
... the rose used to be white until Aphrodite, hurrying to save the dying Adonis, injured herself on thorns and turned the white petals red with blood. Since then, roses are thought to be Aphrodite's flowers, and they're symbolic of life, love, the heart and soul.
This is one myth that I didn't know. I thought that myrtle was Aphrodite's flower.
The fine print: The PR firm representing Korres provided me with a sample of Korres Wild Rose Mineral Illuminating Powder me. It also provided me with a sample of Korres Colour Lip Butter in Mango, a tinted balm with shea butter and rice wax emollients.
