Happy November, all! I can’t believe it’s already November. This year is just flying by– I’m not even used to saying it’s 2015, and 2016 is just around the corner. Wut.
This week I wanted to review a product I have been using for a little over a month now. I love to use mineral powder foundations, and I have found yet another that I enjoy. This one is by Glo Minerals, which happens to be the makeup we use at my school. To be honest, I hadn’t heard of this line until we had our makeup week at school, but I was/am really impressed with this company.
Glo Minerals uses pharmaceutical grade ingredients, triple milled micronized minerals, and every Glo Minerals product is non-comedogenic. Furthermore, their base formulations don’t contain perfumes or chemical dyes, so it’s suitable for sensitive skin types. OH, and they’re cruelty free. I know, I sound like an infomercial, but I’m really impressed with their products.
As for the powder foundation, it’s formulated with Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract to provide nutrients that maintain skin’s radiance. It has a sheer to full coverage (yes, full!). I use a kabuki brush to apply this foundation, and for anywhere that needs a little extra concealing I use a smaller foundation brush to pack it on (it works really well at concealing blemishes, so I don’t need to use a separate concealer).
I tend to get a solid 8 hours of wear out of this. I do have dry skin, but this powder actually doesn’t cling to my flaky self, which is nice. It leaves a nice semi-matte finish as well, so I don’t look like the reptile I am.
At $45, this is a little more on the expensive side, but this particular mineral powder foundation is pressed (instead of loose), which eliminates the needless loss of powder flying into the air (and/or your lungs) as you swirl it around the lid (ahem, Bare Minerals, ahem).
The more I wear this foundation, the more impressed I am with it. If powder foundations are more your style, try this one out. It’s healthy for your skin, and works amazingly well!
What’s your favorite powder foundation?
