I am usually wary of mineral makeup. Behind the hype there is often little more than mica. This couldn't be further from the truth of the products in the RAW Natural Beauty range. The Perfect Balance Concealer & Highlighter
($38) will do much more than cover up imperfections. It will help rectify them.
There are several good antioxidants derived from plants including acai berry
, pea extract and buckwheat. There is also the intriguing inclusion of capparis spinosa. This is caper bush (better known for the berries that are used in cooking) and it has high levels of rutin. In humans, rutin attaches to an iron (ion i2) and prevents it from binding to hydrogen pyroxide, which would lead to the creation of harmful free radicals. Best of all, there is nothing not to like.
