Review of Everyday Minerals Buttered Tan by olelala
WOW. This is a total winner. I love MMU, and loved Prescriptives All Skins but found that their foundation a little too pink for me. Cover FX MMU was good but slightly on the powdery side, and of course both of my favorites were very expensive. Then I discovered EDM! I love how they provide free samples, and after 2 kits found my shade: Buttered Tan with a slight sprinkle of Winged Butter. Perfection! I never tried the other formulations, but Intensive is amazing. Medium to full coverage, not chalky looking, doesn't break me out, and looks incredibly natural. It's SO easy to apply, and since its a powder it never looks streaky and it doesn't "melt" through the day! Love! Also, it's so reasonably priced. The price of one Cover FX or Prescriptives foundation is the price of 6 full-sized EDM products... can't get over this!
I must also rave about the jar, with its genius closeable sifter! I travel with my MMU, and its a powdery mess after one bus ride. This allows me to keep everything neat when I open the jar - no dusty surprise for me. Yay!
As for Buttered Tan - I am a hispanic/Asian mutt, and this color fits me perfectly. I'm light golden tan in color, with peach but predominantly more yellow undertones. Buttered tan is perfect, but slightly less yellow and maybe a tinge darker than my skin, that's why I add a bit of Winged Butter. The combination together is amazing.
EDIT: Since this time, I have found that my perfect shade is in a completely different color family - Olive. My mix is Sandy Olive 1:1 with Olive Medium. Beaaaautiful and not as peachy pink as Buttered Tan - perfect for the summer months and JUST like my skin.
