Jay's Beauty Babe here! Apparently, influencers have really been digging products from Jay Manuel Beauty, especially the Filter Finish Collection, duh! Wanna know how I know? Because I'm all over the web trying to find out what the word is just so that I can stay on trend enough to let you know what's going on.
That being said, blogger, Miranda Mendoza of Slashed Beauty (*swoon), had some fabulous things to say about the massive product haul she tried. Here's a glimpse of what she had to say:
I grew up watching ANTM— America’s Next Top Model, that is. The show definitely fueled my love for beauty and creative looks… so when I heard that Jay Manuel had launched his own beauty line, I was curious to say the least.
A couple years ago, Jay released the Filter Finish Collection, and I don’t know why I haven’t heard more people talking about it. I have to say, I usually don’t buy into the hype with “celebrity” makeup lines, but with Jay’s background as a professional makeup artist, I had a little more hope going into testing the products. Spoiler alert: the collection did NOT let me down.
Keep reading for a rundown of my faves from the collection and my go-to look I create with them! Plus, we’re giving away a few of my picks to one lucky winner.
The real heroes of the Filter Finish Collection are the face products. They’re pigmented, buildable, blendable and have epic staying power. With ingredients like diamond powder, crushed gemstones, silk, silicone, minerals and antioxidants, they’re delivering major complexion enhancement with conditioning moisture.
Swatched left to right: Photo Illusion Concealer, Blush, Skin Face Lift, Skin Perfector Foundation, Powder to Cream Foundation, Bronzer, 3D Illuminator
The line is named for its ability to mimic the skin perfecting filters found on Instagram like Tilt Shift (blurring effect), Brighten and Highlight. The products are grouped into three main looks you can achieve: Soft Focus, Illuminating, and Sunlit.
Photo Illusion Concealer ($36) | This concealer is full coverage, and conceals, brightens and blurs. The dispenser is cool to the touch so I also feel like it’s soothing my undereye area every time I apply. It doesn’t settle into lines, and the Aloe & Vitamin E hydrates wherever I use it!
Filter: Soft Focus, Illuminating, Sunlit
Blush ($28) | This brush packs a punch! This shade in Bella is bright for a pop of color, but can be dusted on with a flexible fluffy brush for a naturally pinched pink appearance. Filter: Soft Focus.
