Review of Everyday Minerals Matte Foundation by pixieled665
My 12 piece kit arrived a few weeks ago, but Iíve been lazy about reviewing. I tired the original glow and the semi-matte in the sample kit, and really liked the color and coverage of EMís foundation, but I wanted something more matte, so I ordered the matte for the kit. The matte is not nearly as shinny as the semi-matte, other than that its pretty much the same color and coverage. I definitely like this mineral foundation because itís such a great price and it really blows away BEís, and itís far better than all the cream and liquid foundations Iíve tried in the past. Having said all that, I LOVE all the eye shadows & blushes that came w/ the kit and I well definitely be repurchasing them in more colors. *UPDATE* I've been using this for long over a month now and I absolutly love it. I was using Alimas mineral foundation but it started drying out my skin like crazy so I switch back to EM and it does not irritate my skin at all. I just ordered my second kit because all of EM's products really work with my skin in a good way.
**I recently changed my skincare regimen, which includes a salicylic/glycolic acid lotion on my skin as the final step. My Everyday Minerals Matte foundation does NOT like this. It literally slides off my skin and looks patchy and gross within an hour if I wear the two together. Iíve been using my Alima Mineral Foundation (that I had previously sat aside because it was drying my skin out) instead and it, on the other hand, looks amazing on top of the lotion. I forgot how perfect the color match is with my Alima too. Anyway, what a shame about the EM. I really liked it and I loved the price of it but it just isnít working with my new skincare regimen. Boo. :(
