This is the first mineral powder foundation I have ever tried and holy smokes where have I been?!? This stuff is amazing! (To be clear my review is for ZUZU Luxe Dual Powder Foundation.)

-Staying power completely outlasts traditional liquid/cream foundations. I wore it for 9 hours with NO primer underneath and I could not perceive any fading although I am sure there must have been.
-No cakey look, very build-able
-Light to medium coverage -> you can customize it by applying more but in general its a light-medium coverage.
-The finish is matte and smooth and it gives you a blurring of lines or blemishes that is lovely
-I have colour D-17 (Light/Medium with beige undertones) and I find it is slightly more golden than my skin tone but because the look is so natural I can get away with it. The description says 'beige' undertone which typically means its a bit more 'pinky' than it is 'yellow or golden' in undertone. But I do not find the D-17 to be pinky at all... and thus not a typical 'beige' undertone. (Note: The colour D-07, which is the lighter counterpart to D-17 does have a more beige undertone as expected from the description on their website.)
-No irritation, no redness, no odd reaction to the formulation, no fragrance.


So far I am really thrilled with this foundation!
I am taking off one lippy because I think its priced too high, $40 CAD.
