I am so excited to dive into a new beauty brand: Jay Manuel Beauty! I must start out by saying I am a big fan of Jay Manuel himeself! I am really familiar with him from my years of watching him on America's Next Top Model!

To find out more about Jay Manuel Beauty and the Filter Finish Collection and to enter the GIVEAWAY, please click "read more" below! :)

I had so much fun playing with all of this gorgeous makeup from Jay Manuel beauty. For each filter look, I started with the same basics (foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, and highlighter) and then added the recommended color cosmetics (eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, lipgloss, and mascara) for each Filter collection look. 

Do I have a favorite #FindYourFilter look? Yes! The Soft Focus Filter is my fav look! The assortment of colors in the Soft Focus Filter collection are just totally "me". From the neutral eyeshadow palette, to the pink glossy lips, the look is just very "me"! Plus, I love the whole ease of this look: effortlesss beauty that enhances your natural look. It is the type of look that I go to for everyday makeup. 

The collection from Jay Manuel Beauty has three distinct filters - Soft Focus, Illuminated, and Sunlit. So, you can let the world see you exactly how you want to be seen all the time!  Imagine feeling #blessed next time you post a selfie on Instagram with #NoFilter. So awesome!!! 

Here is some info on each of the 3 Filter Looks and Filter Technology directly from Jay Manuel Beauty! :) 

The Soft Focus filter enhances your natural beauty with minimal time and application needed. With just a simple swipe of diamond dust-infused Powder to Cream Foundation and a little airbrush from the Photo Illusion Concealer, you can erase imperfections and create an effortless natural look. Use the two sponges to apply your foundation and concealer and you’ll be #FilterFinished in no time.

Key Products:

Powder to Cream Foundation:
In the container, this product has a powder consistancy. When it comes in contact with the skin, the powder transforms and releases microencapsulated pigments and humectants that melt into your skin and turn the product into a cream consistancy foundation. So cool! This foundation contains "diamond dust" which reflects light and blurs skin imperfections. I really do like the texture and coverage of this product, however, I was sent shades that were too dark for my skin tone. I think I was mismatched with my shade from the app as I did not use a well-lit photo. Retails for $38.

Since the Powder to Cream Foundation was too dark for me, Jay Manuel sent me an additional foundation in a lighter shade to try: Jay Manuel Beauty Skin Perfector Foundation. I tried the shade "Light Filter 1". This shade is a beautiful match for my fair skin tone. I really enjoy the coverage and the texture of this foundation! Jay Manuel beauty describes this foundation as a multi-functional silicone-based liquid makeup enriched with micronized silk and plant-based antioxidants. This foundation is able to lightly hydrate your skin while also priming and evening skin tone and texture in one step. The coverage is medium with buildability to full coverage. I do not feel that this foundation emphasizes fine lines nor does it settle into pores. I really love the perfected look that this foundation gives my skin! It is a winner in my book!

Photo Illusion Concealer:
This is a fantastic multi-use concealer with great coverage! With my dark under eye circles, I need all the coverage I can get. While I wish this concealer had just a tad more coverage (to make it opaque/full coverage), I still like it as I can build up to full coverage. I love that this concealer does not budge once it is set. It stays put all day! This is great when you have watery eyes like I do. Like all Filter Finish collection products, it is formulated with Diamond Dust to blur imperfections. It also contains micronized silk and silicone. I really like the coverage and the texture of this concealer! I have very dark under eye circles and this product really works to cover them and make me look more awake.

My favorite look: The Soft Focus Filter look with my Favorite Jay Manuel Beauty Products:
So, after playing a LOT with all of my new Jay Manuel Beauty products, I have discovered my favorite products and my favorite filter look: the Soft Focus Filter look.

Skin Face Lift is a gorgeous illuminating powder. It can be used as a glowing finishing powder to give you an illuminated and airbrushed look. The radiance comes from micro-fine gemstone powders that work beautifully to reflect light. It can be used all over or in key areas for a highlight. Personally, I prefer to use it as a highlight rather that have my whole face glow. Retails for $32 and it comes in 3 shades.

Key Product:

Nothing warms up your face better than a bronzer! It is a must-have for us pale skinned girls! This warm bronzer gives your skin a gorgeous sun-kissed glow. You can use it to add color all over or to add contouring to key areas. Retails for $34.00 and it comes in 3 shades.

Our public “face” makes a statement about our personal selves; so we instinctively want to put our best face forward.

One way that we do this today is with our use of digital “filters”. Almost everyone “filters” their photos before posting them online. Technology makes it easy to control how the world views us.
That‘s why Jay Manuel developed this distinctive line of beauty based on applying “Filter Finish” technology to makeup. All of the Jay Manuel Beauty "Filter Finish Collection" products are formulated with ingredients that mimic the photocperfect finish that we love to achieve with our digital filters.

Some of the key ingredients in the “Filter Finish Collection” are:

These ingredients help create a soft focus/blurring effect on the skin. The Filter Finish collection de-emphasizes the appearance of enlarged pores and fine lines and creates the illusion of filtered flawlessness on all skin types and skin tones.

Filter Finish Collection:
Key Ingredients:
  • Micronized Silk: Softens appearance of fine lines and absorbs oil without stripping skin of sebum.
  • Silicone: Encapsulates color particles without settling into fine lines, promoting smooth application and a uniform dispersion of color onto the skin.
  • Antioxidants & Vitamins A, E & C: Conditions the skin and promotes elasticity and moisture balance
  • Micro Minerals (Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Iron Oxides): Enhances skin tone and improves overall skin health.
  • Crushed Gemstones: Refracts light, highlights the complexion, creating a smooth texture and subtle luster. Sunstone, Goldstone & Tan Opal Gemstones
  • Diamond Powder: Provides a luminous, soft focus, and even appearance to the skin tone.

Jay Manuel Beauty Favorites:
I already have some favorite new products from the Jay Manuel Beauty Filter Finish Collection! Here  is the scoop on some of my favorite products from Jay Manuel Beauty:
  • Photo Illusion Concealer: Concealer is a product near-and-dear to my heart, lol. I am always looking for good ones and really like this one from JMB! It gives full coverage while also hydrating and illuminizing the skin. Key ingredients include: "diamond dust", micronized silk, silicone, aloe, vitamin e, collagen, red algae, and a cooling tip applicator.
  • Luxe Powder: This truly is like an airbrush in a compact! It creates a soft-focus finish while minimizing shine, blurring fine lines, and softening skin imperfections. Contains micornized iron oxides and silicone. 
  • Skin Face Lift: This is a luminizing finishing powder. It gives you a soft focus finish and a super flattering glow! Key Ingredients: Emerald, Amethyst, Moonstone, Ruby, Sapphire, Topaz, Opal, Pearl, Sunstone, and Sandstone.  
  • Bronzer: This bronzer gives lovely warmth and dimension. Contains pearl minerals and iron oxides. Jay Manuel always looks tan. So, this product is a perfect addition to his collection! 

The Jay Manuel Beauty App:
Be sure to check out the amazing Jay Manuel Beauty App! Here is some info about the app directly from Jay Manuel Beauty:

The Jay Manuel Beauty App is a digital tool that is a proprietary patented shade selector powered by “Plum Perfect” that allows a consumer to upload a picture of herself from her mobile device using her camera, photo library, or Facebook. The photo is scanned to detect her coloring and generates customized recommendations of the Jay Manuel Beauty lip, eye, cheek and face colors best suited to her unique look and style. The Beauty Advisor tool helps a woman to not only match her shade, but coordinate her cosmetics with personal taste. Now, I must admit that the App was off with my foundation shade. It recommended shades that were much too dark for my skin. However, it might have been the photo that I used as it was not a well-lit photo.

Illusion Concealer and bronzer heck I want all of them

Joelle said...

I would have to say the bronzer as it's so hard for me to find a good bronzer that does not turn orange or glittery on my skin and the creme foundation, as my skin is so dry and foundation usually flakes on my skin.
