Since makeup artist Bobbi Brown is the one who started the “no-makeup makeup” trend, her several hundred thousand followers trust her to tell them what cosmetics will make their already beautiful features stand out even more. Thus, Jones Road, Brown’s range of natural cosmetics, quickly rose to prominence after its debut in 2020. It was lauded for its comprehensive range of must-have cosmetics suitable for all skin tones and kinds with one particular product that stood out the most—Miracle Balm.
An effective makeup and skincare product in one, the Jones Road Miracle Balm may be used for a variety of purposes. With jojoba seed oil, argan oil, and vitamin E, among other wholesome, moisturizing components, not only does it nourish your skin, but it also gives you a noticeable boost in appearance. The balm is available in a staggering nine different tones, making it suitable for those with dry, mature, sensitive, blemish-prone, combination, and ordinary skin.
“I used ‘Dusty Rose’ and the color is perfect for me. I have light warm olive skin which leans neutral at the center. This color brightens my often sallow skin. I use it with a full face of makeup and add a little blush, but when I don’t want makeup I like to use it alone and sheer it out to brighten more of my face. I love that it’s also nourishing so I can wear it to pilates and not feel that I’m wearing makeup,” one buyer shared.
For optimal application, the balm should be broken open with the index finger, and then warmed to soften the formula, as recommended by the balm. Use your fingers, palms, a brush, or a sponge to dab the balm into your cheeks, lips, eyelids, or anyplace else you desire a tinted or luminous appearance. Bobbi explains that after the balm’s barrier is broken, it may be used on its own or as part of a multi-step process to bronze, highlight, or tint the skin.
Elsewhere, another reviewer stated, “I have a medium tan neutral skin tone with super oily skin. It might sound a bit counterproductive to put a thick product on but after ‘breaking the seal’ and really warming up the product it has been a game changer on my outlook for a no-makeup makeup look. I bought the shade ‘Tawny’ and ‘Bronze’ and at first, I was not wowed by the product. But after making the balm look like the advertised photos it really melted in my skin and gave me that dewy bouncy healthy look to my skin.”
Meet The Jones Road Miracle Balm Shades (9 Available)
Au Naturel: To put it simply, this is your go-to for a transparent balm. It may be used on any skin tone to provide a dewy look and can be applied anywhere.
Dusty Rose: This is a soft, rosy pink hue. It looks amazing on ladies who have porcelain skin or a little pink undertone. It may also be used as a sheer blush on the cheeks or lips. This shade is perfect for use as a lip and cheek color on those with a warmer skin tone.
Bronze: As its name implies, this balm is golden in color and gives the skin a pleasant glow. It’s very effective on freckles and a wide range of skin tones, and it helps reduce redness overall according to Jones Road.
Tawny: Because of its brownish red undertones, this color looks fantastic on those with medium to dark complexion. Bobbi Brown raves about how well it brings out the natural radiance of those with darker ebony skin on her modern lifestyle platform.
Sunkissed: It’s a warm brown with a hint of gold shimmer, will highlight skin and give it a healthy summer shine. If you have a medium to deep skin tone, you’ll look fantastic in this.
Magic Hour: This shade is a soft accent with a silvery sheen. Incredibly multipurpose, I like using this color wherever I want a pop of color, including lips, eyelids, and cheeks. The sheerness makes it suitable for use on all skin tones.
Disco: This dazzling color, which was clearly inspired by the glitz of the 1970s, may be used everywhere a touch of sparkle is desired. Try it on your cheeks, lips, and eyes for a warm bronze with silver and gold shimmer.
Flushed: When applied to the cheeks, lips, and eyes, the warm pink with the gold shimmer of this shade quickly brightens, adds brightness, and gives you a pop of pink.
Golden Hour: Infused with a shimmering gold tone, the peachy bullion of this shade adds depth and warmth to the complexion. It beautifully depicts the rosy glow of a sunset, which flatters everyone in sight.
