Magic Light Contouring Trios ($28) in two gorgeous color tones, and they are definitely magical - from the beautiful compacts to the lovely stamped design in the powders. Each of the three complexion-enhancing powders in a compact combine to amplify the skin’s natural beauty and enhance our facial architectures.
Each picturesque contouring trio includes a weightless, light-diffusing powder, a sculpting powder, and brightening cheek glow to add shape, dimension, and soft focus to your skin. The result is an interplay between shadow and illumination that mimics the “magic light” of Greece, bathing the skin in a natural, flattering glow.
I've had so much fun playing with these powders. I bought them both. My preference for wear? I like to use them as finishing powders - probably because that's fast and easy. They add a very subtle glow - not a shine - that looks good on every part of my face. I have followed the KORRES directions,and I'm happy with the three uses they suggest. If I had to make a Solomon's choice to own only one shade, I think I'd have to select Mykonos. The pink tones are right up my alley. Oh, but Santorini - such a perfect nude/brown for a fair-skinned gal!
The compacts are clear plastic, but very classy. They carry the postcard theme on the lid. Inside, there is a large mirror. As you might expect, the postcard theme, repeated on the surface of the powder, will be gone with a few uses. That's OK. The powders are noteworthy nonetheless. I think of it as a postcard sent back to KORRES to tell them how much I love my Magic Light Contouring Trios.
Really fair? So am I! I suppose Santorini is the best shade for me, but I adore Mykonos. That's why I had to have them both. I couldn't figure it out online at Sephora, and I'm so pleased to have both shades. This was a case of indecision that payed off big time.
I purchased my KORRES Magic Light Trios at Sephora, the exclusive beauty retailer for these beauties. I'll be using these year round. KORRES has outdone itself.
