Review of Merle Norman Luxiva Purely Mineral Makeup by neva22
LOVE THIS!!!! I own numerous foundations including mineral (all high end), and this blows them all away by far!!! When I apply this mineral makeup my skin looks perfect: clear, radiant, no pores, just beautiful glowing radiant skin (as in airbrushed) . What more can a person ask for? When I initally applied the makeup I thought that my face looked shiny, but it's actually a beautiful glow. I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror. Especially impressive in the sunlight as it looks like I'm not wearing any makeup (very important). Absolutely in love with this product. Purchased it in ML50, ML70 & ML90 to match my skin from winter to summer (tanned skin). ML90 works as a great bronzer as well.
Apply primer prior to application and you'll find it works like MAGIC!
Try a small amount of Monistat Soothing Care (chafing powder gel) as a primer. I found this treasure on this website. GREAT, GREAT stuff. I have alot of primers, I.E. Smashbox, Chanel, BB, Make Up Forever, Yves Saint Lauren...I find that Monistat provides the best base for mineral makeup.
