Mehron’s Celebré Precious Gem Powder Review
When you hear the term “Studio and Stage Makeup” you may think crazy, over the top colors made to only look good under shining bright lights. Or you may think of long lasting but heavy, mask-like products.
However, after trying Mehron (a company whose roots originate on Broadway in the 1920’s) you’ll see why this brand crept steadily through not only the entertainment industry, but also the beauty industry, with amazing products that deliver in quality and color.
The wht team reviewed their Celebré Precious Gem Powders ($8.95), a line of luminescent glowing powders that are meant to add a jewel-like luster to your skin, from head to toe. Anything that glows like jewels on my skin sounds absolutely glorious to me. Let’s take a look!
Mehron’s Precious Gem Powders are part of their Studio and Stage Makeup Collection. Don’t let those terms steer you away – they are made for everyday beauties as well. There are 13 self-explanatory shimmering shades total and the team put eight of them to the test. First up…
I received Amethyst, a purely purple wash of gorgeousness that I couldn’t take my eyes off of upon initially swatching. From afar it surely looks purple, but up close you see this semi-metallic quality to it. I can see this being fit for a purple smokey eye or wet for a sexy liner.
Next I tried Aquamarine which screams mermaid goddess. It’s that shimmery, ethereal aqua that is just absolutely gorgeous. This one, unlike Amethyst, is more aqua glow without as much pigment, but equally as beautiful. This would be more ideal for a wash of color on the lids.

These powders have a silky smooth consistency that glides easily over your skin. I love the jewel effect that it produces, which isn’t too extreme but contributes to the depths of its color.
A primer works best for lasting purposes if used on the eyes, and you can also use a mixing liquid or a drop of water to produce darker results. I love the range of birthstone shades offered, the lighter colors are more suitable for use on cheeks and lips.
Five grams of product will last you quite a while and make the price absolutely worth it! You can purchase the Precious Gem Powders line and looks at loads of professional quality makeup over at Mehron.com.
