Sometime ago, some readers left comments in one of my entries that the Everyday Mineral foundation they’ve used changed to a darker tone after a few hours. One even commented that hers turned to an orange hue! I didn’t think I had a problem with mine until recently. I noticed on at least two occasions, the color turned somewhat darker by the end of the day. I also checked and noticed that my face was particularly oily on those days. Is this what is meant by oxidization of makeup?
If you’re keen to try mineral makeup but have no idea where to start, why not take advantage of the free samplers or inexpensive samples? Some of these are available at no shipping cost or even if they charge, are fairly nominal.

I was slightly hesistant when I was contacted to do a review of the Canmake Concealer Foundation UV. Honestly, I was skeptical about the quality because of the way the brand is being positioned. My shallow alter ego actually thought it can’t be any good since the product is well, so affordable. But after reading the product description and considering that I had good experience with the Canmake Eye Lash Essence, I agreed to give this a go. And my verdict?
My mum returned me the mineral powder foundation I got her a couple of months ago, saying that it’s not suitable for her. My best friend, who tried some of the samples I gave her also had few good things to say about them. It looks like, despite the raves, mineral makeup is not for everyone. While I’ve been using mineral makeup for about a year now, and I do like it, but I do have some gripes as well. Since I’ve been experimenting with compact and loose powder again these couple of weeks, I thought I’ll put together a quick comparison of these three from an amateur’s standpoint.
