I just received this lovely set today thanks to Todra over at Healthy Beauty Social and I am still just absolutely amazed.
First and foremost, this absolutely wonderful foundation comes in three shades, so there wasn’t any guess work as to what color I needed. The dark is perfect because its so sheer.
The Natural Anti-Aging Foundation Set comes with the creme foundation, a jar of loose setting powder, which also comes in three different colors to match the foundation. There’s also a latex free blending sponge. The loose setting powder (which is a rice powder) comes with a shaker lid that’s closeable, which is handy.
I didn’t know what to expect with the foundation. When I first looked at it I thought the color wasn’t going to be deep enough, until I washed my hands and ran my finger around and around the top of the foundation. The color was extremely sheer and I could feel all of the wonderful stuff that were in the foundation: jojoba, sunflower, sesame, mango butter, as well as other yummy things. The consistency wasn’t really creamy nor was it oily…it was silky smooth and thin. When I put it on my face (with my finger) it slid on effortlessly. I am sure the color is buildable but even just a thin application my skin tone was evened out and HEALTHY looking.
I cannot say enough about how my skin looked, I can’t. I have tried many mineral powder foundations and it covered way too much and sunk into the wrinkles around my eyes and was just so heavy, I could feel it on my face. This foundation was like putting on a facial serum: light, breathable, airy and healing. I couldn’t believe it how well my face looked with such a sheer product.
The rice setting powder is odd, at first. Its not as fine as I am used to when it comes to powders, but the result was stunning. I tapped some into the lid of the container, dipped in my mini kabuki brush and pressed it in. Even with a small application of powder I still didn’t have that bottom-of-a-floured-cake- pan look.
My face looked like my face, only better. There was no streaking of color, no heavy coverage, no cakey feel. Simply, I looked absolutely amazing.
I love makeup, but I haven’t been wearing any because I haven’t had any luck with a healthy mineral foundation powder. Even with all the veils and setting powders, I just looked too heavily made up and the color would change over the course of the day as the oils of my skin broke through. I got fed up with trying sample after sample of foundations for the right color.
I have dry, sensitive, eczema prone skin and this foundation felt amazing. I highly recommend it to those of us who want our skin to look better but not made up.
