All because I tried Bare Escentuals about 7 months ago and then eventually bought a kit, Jenn deemed me the resident mineral makeup expert and proceeded to give me anything mineral related. Who knew some many companies made mineral makeup?!
At some point in the mineral whirlwind Raw Minerals made it's way to me. I have tried it numerous times over the last few months. As far as mineral makeup goes, this is a great one. I have the active Active Mineral Foundation, Active Veil, and Mineral Glow.
All 3 products contain:
- ActivSilk, which is a powder that absorbs skin oil and helps to reduce the sign of wrinkles.
- Soybean Extract, which helps with the appearance of deep wrinkles, balance skin color, and skin texture.
- Natural Corn Extract, that helps stimulate cell renewal to help even out the complexion and enhance skin's glow and energizes the skin.
- VitaFirm Complex which has high-performance botanical peptides that help firm and reduce moisture loss in skin.
The Active Mineral Foundation ($30) pictured on the left, has 4 different shades to try. I thought it went on really well. Very smooth and didn't look like I had powder all over my face. I did use a primer before I put anything on and I have found that helps the makeup stick around all day. I also go back over any imperfections with the concealer brush ($20) and little bit of the foundation and it works really well as a concealer. I have a broken capillary under one eye and you would never know it when I use this makeup, same goes for any under eye circles.
The Mineral Glow ($25) pictured on the right, complements all skin tones and skin types. And is applied just like you would bronzer. And a helpful hint from Christine...a little, teeny, weeny bit goes a long, long, long way. Seriously.
And the best thing about Raw Minerals....their brushes. I love them. I find myself using their Foundation Brush even when I use other mineral makeup. They fit right in with my Bobbi Brown brushes. AND they are eco-friendly.
If you are looking for a mineral makeup to try I would consider buying this one. For more information or to purchase them for yourself, please visit rawbeauty.com. Okay, I think that is about all I can say for Raw Minerals, at least for now. I have a few other products for them, but I will save them for another day.
