FACTS & FIGURES
It is a loose powder foundation available in a range of 14 shades making it possible for anyone to find a perfect match for their skin tone. You get 40g of product in the jar.

  Is this loose powder mineral foundation really worth replacing your current HG foundation?

MY OPINION
I never had a thing for full coverage foundation. I like mine sheer and light and natural. That is why I was delighted on the prospect of trying out mineral foundation.
Mineral Hygienic Mineral Foundation is my first go with any mineral makeup. And I fell in love with the foundation formula instantly. It is lightweight, doesn’t clog pores, the skin keeps breathing and the natural beauty is enhanced. It does not at all feel powdery but rather makes me look radiant and fresh giving a flawless, perfect finish. Amazingly, it is pretty long lasting! For oily or combination skin, this foundation is a dream in a jar.
Not to forget this foundation provides sun protection, is water resistant and is safe for all skin types especially people with sensitive skin.
I received two samples in ‘Light’ and in ‘Medium’ both having neutral undertones. Both of them are so much alike that it took me 3-4 attempts to finally find my perfect match. The thing about mineral foundation is that when you apply it on your face it warms up after 3-5 mins. So in case you are finding your skin match you need to wait for a few minutes after applying it on your jaw-line, in a way you are actually selecting a shade slightly lighter that will warm up later to match your tone, otherwise you may end up choosing a colour that will make you darker than your actual skin shade. I am thinking of doing a picture tutorial soon showing how to find your mineral foundation skin match.
A mineral foundation can provide from sheer to heavy coverage. If you use a larger fluffy brush it will provide a sheer coverage and if you use a small brush with densely packed bristles it will give a heavy coverage.

RATING
I say that every makeup lover has to try this mineral foundation once to see the world of difference it makes from the BB creams and liquid foundations.

  4. I like mineral cosmetics. I have used Loreal Bare Naturale,I liked the result but it broke me out so I had to discontinue after finding out that it has bismuth oxychloride.

    1. Thank you! You are so sweet. This will work amazingly on oily skins. You can also try out their Translucent Finishing Powder, available in matte too. I have one and I really like it.
      Check out their startup kits here:

      Their bronzers and blushes are also of great quality. If you buy things individually you can skip out the brush, I prefer Sigma's brushes.
