This one passed the "High Noon" sun test!!!!
Wow! I spent 1/2 the day outdoors last week and forgot to bring my pressed powder to blot. I stopped at a local beauty supply shop and decided to give this a try just for kicks. The price was right ($3.50) and it was so nice to see a display of colors that cater to women of color.
I bought RMP15-Cognac and this stuff disappeared into my skin. The color was a true match for my skintone and it totally eliminated the shine on my T-Zone. I was outdoors for the next 4 hours, cloudless sky and I could not tell that I had this stuff on my face! Cognac has a slight reddish undertone that suits my darker, summer complexion perfectly. I am definately going to try a lighter color once my summer glow starts to fade.
This comes in 8 shades. You get a very generous 10 grams of product. Mine did not come with a sponge (some do) but I picked one up at the counter for $.50 and it fit perfectly in the compact.
I first wore this powder over my liquid foundation and it provided a long-lasting, full-coverage look. I also wear it alone, over a spot concealer application and it looks even better on its own! It completely fades away any discolorations or marks and just seems to become like an extension of my natural skin. It does not look powdery, cakey or ashy. If I want a 'dewy' look, then I just mist some Fix+ over the top.
It lasts me about 8 hours, I only have to blot a couple of times. This powder is marketed for sensitive/acne-prone skin (it has .5% Salicylic Acid). I've had no breakouts using this powder. The compact is simple and sleek.
I highly recommend my darker complexion friends give this wonderful product a try before shelling out major money at a dept. store for something that is not formulated for your skintone. I've found some of Ruby Kisses products to be hit or miss, but the Mineral Powder is a definite Hit for me.
I have the Ruby Kisses Blemish Control Powder. It covers very well and it does not make my face look oily after a certain length of time. I have used many other brands of makeup and this brand is definitely one of the best that I have used. Another plus about this makeup is that out of all of the other makeups that I have used this makeup definitely makes me look the best :). This makeup really gives me that fused flawless look. The makeup fuses so well with my skin.
Excellent powder. Looks very natural, doesn't look like you have makeup on. Such a beautiful finish that covers well & is very breathable. I dust some of this powder on & then dust on some translucent powder by New York Color to prolong the staying power. Great combination! continued >>
i have KISS COLORS creme to powder foundation in honey glow. it is from the same line as RUBY KISSES...it is great. it has natural spf and doesn't clog pores. it is also tested by dermatologist what else can you ask for.
I bought this in Creamy Cocoa (#5). It's a bit too dark since my tan has faded, but I'm going back to get a lighter shade. It covers very well without being cakey, and really controls my oily skin. I found it at a mom & pop beauty supply for only $4.99. It has .5% salicylic acid. continued >>
