I don't post in here much, as I don't use much makeup, but that's why I especially want to talk about this brand.
When I went through a REALLY awful period of breakouts recently, I looked for ages into makeup. I knew I wanted something natural and high quality that would not break the bank.
Bare Minerals works well, but I couldn't stand their advertising. I didn't want to support a company so obnoxious, honestly.
Origins are AMAZING, but I didn't have the option of getting them either in the mail or at a location (I was traveling).
So I found Mineral Fusion. Specifically - their pressed powder foundation.
I just happened upon it at a co-op in Newark, DE, but man, am I glad I did. It is a WONDERFUL pressed powder; it covers up blemishes wonderfully, stays put, is super light (you can keep applying it for more coverage or just brush it on for light coverage - superb) and non-comodegenic, and is made of all-natural ingredients (very important to me). And perhaps best of all, the company is one I can support. They're responsible and do their part to be environmentally friendly.
The powder cost me about $24 or so - give or take - but it's been two months and I can barely see a dent in it. A little bit goes a long way (or has for me), and man, it's so worth the extra bit to get this good stuff.
Just thought I'd mention it, as I really, really love this stuff. You can't even tell I'm wearing it!
Hope somebody finds this relevant, have a good day!
I'm leaving this up, as I know MANY people have had good experiences with Mineral Fusion -- and I did for a while. But recently, I'm starting to think it might actually have an ingredient in it I'm sensitive to, so I want to make that known. Full disclosure and all that. The ingredients in it are:
Mica, Lauroyl Lysine, Zinc Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Zinc Oxide (CI 77947), Boron Nitride, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C), Hydrolyzed Mango Juice Extract, Hydrolyzed Garcinia Mangostana (Mangosteen) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract, Alaria Esculenta (Sea Kelp) Extract, Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibus Red Tea) Leaf Extract, Glycrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Extract, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Sambucus Nigra Fruit (Elderberry), Phenoxyethanol. MAY CONTAIN (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).
Hope this helps people.
