There is no one way to categorize this groundbreaking foundation. While it could be called a solid mineral foundation, it is wildly hydrating and never looks cake-y. And rejoice – perfectly portable. bareMinerals took all their experience and knowledge of mineral makeup and incorporated skin-renewing sea minerals. This formula leads to coverage that looks nothing like a regular mineral foundation.
My skin has always been too dry for anything but tinted moisturizer or creamier foundations. So I was concerned this might not work for me. This is actually a moisturizing foundation thanks to the inclusion of cold-pressed Rose hip seed oil. The time released hydration system hydrates the skin all day long. And the powder that actually feels like a cream is buildable for varying coverage.
It is definitely worth it to pick up the accompanying brush – Precision Face Brush. It also comes in a retractable form for on-the-go. The brush head is specifically designed to fit the contours of the face. Swirl the brush lightly in the powder, tap and buff it onto your face. I move from the center outward. Repeat until you have your desired coverage.
The foundation will be available in 20 shades for $29 in September at Sephora, Macy’s, Ulta, Dillard’s and Nordstrom’s.
