I have had countless foundations over the years, powder, creme to powder, liquid and all sorts of brands, seriously every year I chuck out at least 2 or 3 as I buy them, try them and they fester in my make up kit until they eventually separate and go skanky!
I have tried 3 different brands of mineral powder make-up and have had troubles with coverage, and the one that provided me with coverage made me want to tear my face off as it irritated me so so much!
Step forward bareMinerals! I must admit that the older I get, the more I am willing to spend on make-up! It is paying off. I have currently got Original foundation, Mineral Veil and Warmth.
Application was easy as, it was such a small amount of foundation that I tried and I was astonished when I looked in the mirror, the coverage was astounding! I have always had a bug bear with my ruddy complexion but even this was covered.
You just shake a bit into the lid, swirl the brush, tap it and buff onto the face. It is quick, faultless and amazing. Mineral Veil is not needed, but it gave me a bit of extra against the shiny nose. It also seemed to give me a luminosity that I have never had.
Warmth scared me, I was taken a-back when I saw it in the pot but the teeniest amount for me (I am pale) just put a bit of life and well, warmth into my face.
My complexion was so even that for the first time in my life I felt happy to wear blusher! I had the make-up on for a few hours and still looked great when I got home, and not once did my face itch!
I think this will be my forever foundation!
bareMinerals is available from Debenhams, QVC they also have an online shop and they have a couple of Boutique shops too, which I so want to visit!
