I would like to say that the Alima Satin Matte Mineral Foundation is a good product. However, it doesn’t work well for my skin tone and I don’t like the way I look with this foundation.
There is a specific technique when it comes to applying mineral makeup. i.d. bareMinerals calls it Swirl, Tap, Buff. Erth Mineral Makeup calls it Twirl, Tap and Brush. But they are all the same when it comes to the process.
I had a little problem initially but with practice, it became real easy. I saw the mineral makeup application video on i.d. Minerals website and realised that I was on track, except that instead of putting the powder on the lid, what I do is to use my brush to pick up the powder, then swirl it on the lid then tap the excess off. This helps to prevent unnecessary wastage.
I have to say I’m very impressed by the mineral foundation from Erth Mineral Makeup.
Apart from mineral eyeshadows, I have yet to buy mineral foundation even though I’ve read and written good things about it. First it isn’t readily available here and second, because of the way it looks, I thought I would get similar result like normal loose powder, for which I’m not a fan of. But thanks to free samples from the company, I finally got to try mineral foundation and I’m now completely hooked on the product.
Sometime last month, I highlighted about using mineral makeup being one of the newest trends and introduced some brands in that article. Well, I found out today about Naked Minerals, which is a durable 24-hour makeup that won’t stain sheets or clothing.
Made with pure ground minerals from the earth, and essential oils, Naked Minerals makeup does not contain ingredients that cause skin irritations or problems. No talc, wax and other cheap fillers, nor any FD&C colorings.
