Mineral make-ups are the healthier option for many of us. Here I have the Maybelline Clear Smooth Mineral Healthy Natural Powder Foundation to review on.
It contains no preservatives, oil and fragrance. The coverage that is gentle to your skin and allows it to breathe. Triple refined micro-minerals have a closer affinity to skin. Healthy natural looking finish that blends with your skin tone.
The secret of micro-minerals?
Micro-minerals has been selected for their quality and purity. They are gently processed to improve their affinity with skin.
The actual product:
It comes with a 100% natural bristles kabuki brush and an 8 grams of sifting jar filled with minerals.
The product claims
The kabuki brush is a total waste of time. It felt rough and scratchy even after I wash them. I kept it aside to maybe use them in case, my brushes are filthy dirty which hardly happens. Bad kabuki, chuck it away! The powder in the jar was pretty yellow to me. When I was selecting my foundation shade, it was pretty difficult to just identify it from the looks of the powder from the jar.
- Moisturize skin
- Sift a small amount of mineral powder onto the jar lid
- Use your own kabuki or buffer brush swirl on the jar lid to pick up on the mineral powder
- Gently tap on the lid ( I hardly do this, skip to the next step)
- Swirl into the sifting jar to remove excess
- Apply all over the face including neck
It helps to neutralize my skin tone. The redness around my nose and eye area is less visible. The mineral powder doesn’t look yellow on my skin. To prevent such matter to happen, use it at a minimal amount. It provides a medium coverage and doesn’t irritate my skin.
Double up the application to work it as concealer. Repeat step 2,3,4 and 5 from the application. Just apply more around areas to be concealed. Again, try to keep on a minimal amount. It gives a healthy glow and coverage on my skin. It doesn’t clog my pores. Easily to be removed by make-up remover. This is the first ever powder that last very long and keep shine away .
