New to the cosmetics market, the MANNA Cosmetics signature line includes six dual-purpose products. There is also a wide range of eye, face, and lip products available. I’ve had the chance to try two items from the signature line, Camera Ready and Sheer Glow.
Camera Ready is a face primer that is translucent and dries to a matte finish. I found this product to do an excellent job as a base for my foundation and thought it did very well at keeping shine down. I was actually quite impressed that this primer did as well, if not better, than the Smashbox primer that I use regularly.
Sheer Glow is a product you can mix with your foundation (or wear alone) to create a more luminous glow to your face and body. The product is of a thin consistency and has a pink, shimmery tint. I am a huge fan of highlighters in my makeup routine so I thought I would try this in place of my highlighter step. It worked like a charm! I would squeeze out just a small amount (as seen below) and then mix it in with the amount of foundation that I would use on my cheek area. I wore this mix only on my cheeks and it gave a beautiful glow just like my highlighting step would! This was a nice, subtle effect and gave a dewy look just where I wanted it.

Overall, I was very impressed with the abilities of both Camera Ready as a face primer and Sheer Glow mixed into foundation as a highlighter. I would recommend these to anyone who likes to try new products, in need of a new primer, or looking for items that are multi-use.
