A Beauty Review: mark. Min-a-Real Cream to Powder Foundation

mark. Min-a-Real Cream to Powder Foundation in Buff ($18)

A mineral foundation that goes on as a cream and dries to a powder.

After hearing rave reviews about this foundation, I knew I had to try it.  A number of people told me that this foundation is perfect because it gives great coverage without being cakey.  I absolutely had to try it for myself.  I’m not typically a fan of foundations – I’d much prefer a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. 

At first, I tried samples.  Using my finger, I applied the foundation and loved the result.  When I bought the full-sized product, I used the included sponge applicator to apply it.  I hated it.  It came on heavy and it was not at all what I was hoping for.

I decided to give it one more chance with a foundation brush – la pièce de résistance!  The foundation is really smooth and silky.  Even with my oily skin, it leaves me with a matte, fresh look all day.  If you’re looking to try out a new foundation, Min-a-Real is a definite buy.
