IÂ have to say I’m very impressed by the mineral foundation from Erth Mineral Makeup.Â
Apart from mineral eyeshadows, I haveÂ yetÂ to buy mineral foundation even though I’veÂ read and writtenÂ good things about it.Â 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.Â But thanks to free samples from the company, I finally got to tryÂ mineral foundationÂ and I’m now completely hooked on the product.Â
ThereÂ was aÂ remarkable difference to how IÂ looked upon using this mineral foundation.Â The finishing was natural and flawless, so much better when compared to my usual 2-way cake.Â Â I didn’tÂ need a facial spritz to set my look and even my husband commented thatÂ I lookedÂ good with a nice glow.Â
While the texture resembles loose power, the coverageÂ was nothing like loose powder.Â Â It was fine and even.Â And what made meÂ happier was to know that I’ve got extra protection becauseÂ both zinc and titanium oxides are found in Erth Mineral Foundations, providing SPF15 protection.Â In fact, this product is really great value for money as it is four items rolled into one — foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen –Â at just US$13 for 10 grams!Â
The only thing that needed some getting used to for me was using a makeup brush to apply the foundation.Â The only brushes that I ever use are forÂ eyebrow and eyeshadow and I had no idea what twirl, tap and brush technique really is despite detailed instructions on their website.Â But whatever I did, it worked well and my face was glowing for a good part of the day.Â So I doubt I’ll want to buy the normal powder now that I’ve seen the benefits of mineral foundation.Â I’m definitely sold for sure.
Erth Mineral Makeup also offers 2 grams worth of eyeshadowsÂ in a wide range of colours at US$5.25 each.Â The ones sent to meÂ are inÂ very light pastel shades and didn’t work so well for my skin colour.Â But still, the texture was great andÂ I like the fact that theirÂ eyeshadows are 100% natural crushed minerals with noÂ preservatives, no chemicals and no dyes.Â
