I cant express how wonderful this foundation is. It completely exceeded my expectations. Forget about everything you thought mineral foundation would be, like being caky, looking powdery and sticking to dry patches. In fact, this award winning foundation applies beautifully and applying foundation has never been so effortless. It has a gorgeous silky, soft texture and isn’t drying in the slightest.  I wear shade medium beige N20, which may be one shade too dark for me, but once it, is blended, I get away with it! 

The coverage is customisable from sheer to full, depending on what brush you use to apply it. With a stippling brush you will get a light to medium coverage and with one of the Bare Minerals face brushes, such as their Full Flawless Application Face Brush, or their Full Coverage Kabuki Brush, you can achieve full coverage. And no matter how much you apply, it is extremely light on the skin and it doesn’t really look like your wearing a full face of makeup (my boyfriend approves!).

After moisturizing (and on occasion applying a primer), I like to use the excess powder in the lid and blend it out using my Real Techniques stippling brush. I like to apply this foundation after applying any concealer, as it really helps the concealer stay in place - especially under my eyes! The finish is really flattering, it gives an airbrushed look and it leaves my skin looking really healthy and glowing, which is partly down to the small shimmery particles in the powder, which may sound off putting, but they are very subtle and the effect it gives is outstanding. Also, my skin texture has improved dramatically since using this foundation and I haven’t suffered from any breakouts (touch wood!), which is partially down to my new skincare routine, but I believe this foundation has also really helped. 

Along with the added bonus of having an SPF of 15, it has to be one of the longest lasting foundations I own and have ever tried, with or without a primer! I apply this foundation around 7.30am and at 6pm it still looks pretty damn flawless! This foundation has by far become my go-to and in fact, it is giving my favourite Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation a run for its money!

The only negative I have is the packaging, its messy. You only have to look at the photo to see that!  However, I can look past that, as this foundation is outstanding. It is worth every penny and I certainly won’t be searching for a new foundation anytime soon! It’s been tried and tested and the application is effortless, the finish is flawless and it has improved my skin texture, what more could I ask for?! I highly recommend this foundation, especially if you suffer from sensitive, dull and dry skin like me. I will stop gushing now... but you must try it! Go, go, go!!
