Review of Merle Norman Luxiva Ultra Powder Foundation by hmburch
Ladies......this is the ultimate perfect foundation.
And this is how you can wear this little miracle:
Wear alone...if you really need some heavy coverage like under eyes etc., or on your forehead or chin if prone to heavy shine.
Or: for daily wear, I dab a little on the back of my hand & mix with a drop or two of chanels radiance revealing serum. (a thin gel like serum with light reflectors)then apply to face.
Or: (for dry skinned days) Mix a little with my la Mer face lotion.
Alone, the foundation is very matte and may "settle" too quickly, that is why I mix it.(of course you dont have to use chanel or la mer as a mixer, they are just examples of what kind of mixers work great)
But, it is invaluable in my toolbox because it doesnt feel gooey (like lotion, or make your face look like an oil slick like most foundations).
Bonus! In the summer....when your face is all sweaty and red, it still keeps its color and helps reduce shine.....great for summer vacation pics!
Think of this like tequila....alone it isnt really great, but mixed.....it becomes a delicious margarita !!!!
