|Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting|
Foundation in Light 0
As someone who's skin needs fluctuates on a daily basis I need a foundation that is buildable enough to provide medium coverage when I need it and sheer to light coverage when I don't, all while looking natural on the skin. It can be a very tall order to fill, but this foundation does it with ease.
I find that most medium coverage foundations just can't stand up to my skin needs, but I find this does unlike many others. It goes on smoothly and seamlessly blends with my skin, even though the foundation is off a shade or two when I picked up the lightest color (Light 0). With that said, I feel this collection of shades is more favorable towards those with medium to dark complexions (or anyone that isn't considered fair). However, thanks to its awesome blending abilities I am still able to wear this foundation without looking like my face was stuck inside a tanning bed for an hour!
Another great thing about this foundation is that it leaves me with a natural finish, not too matte so that I look completely flat and not too dewy and shiny that I look like a disco ball, just perfect. However, I do have to say that it doesn't hold up to oil as much as I would like it to. With that said, I don't think this would be a good foundation for those of you with oily skin unless you use a mattifying primer and powder overtop. On the other hand, this seems to be a good foundation for those with normal to dry skin types because it doesn't cling to any dry or rough patches on the skin, leaving you with a flawless finish.
But there is one small problem with this foundation, I recently heard they are discontinuing it! Which is definitely not ideal, especially since I adore the finish, but if you check allcosmeticswholesale.com they have a few select colors still in stock, so grab them if you can!
