It was about a year ago that I became interested with mineral make-up. Like everybody else, I wanted something that’s good for my skin and good for my pocket. I later on found out about the Maybelline Mineral Power Collection and thought that it was interesting enough to try. Hey, any cosmetic with the word “power” on it is worth a try so I ended up with the foundation.
The packaging is like any other mineral make-up. It comes in a powder dispensing container. You would have to turn it upside down with the lid on, tap the back, turn it right side up and then open the lid. Swirl any type of fluffy brush you have on the lid to get just the right amount. The whole process didn’t really bother me but it could be inconvenient when you’re in a hurry.
The Maybelline Mineral Power Powder Foundation only has 5 color shades to choose from, according to the Maybelline website:
Classic Ivory – Light 2
Nude – Light 4
Creamy Natural – Light 5
Pure Beige – Medium 2
Natural Ivory – Light 3
For others, this may be an upside as it narrows down your choices (Yeah, you know what I’m talking about >_<) but one key to natural looking foundation is the right color or shade choice. Personally, I’m somewhere between a light and a medium so I should have chosen Light 4 or Light 5. I bought Light 3 instead because it kind of looked like my shade but sadly, I was mistaken. It was too light!
Free Kabuki Brush
The foundation I purchased came with a brush. It’s too bad because it does not feel good on the skin. It’s a bit stiff and rough when you use it to apply the foundation on. I tried washing it with hair conditioner hoping that it would somehow make it softer. It did the trick BUT it’s still not as soft as what I imagined it to be.
The price and it’s coverage
The Maybelline Mineral Power Powder Foundation has a good price despite it being a mineral make-up. You pay about $6-$9 for a product that can improve your overall skin condition, reduce redness and make your skin smoother. Not a bad deal!
The foundation has a light to medium coverage and feels very comfortable on the skin. It’s fantastic as a matte-efier. Too bad I bought the wrong shade. I don’t wear it now because the result is ghostly ( you know when you take pictures of yourself with make-up on and then see the pictures; And realize that your foundation is totally OFF!!!).
I like the micro-minerals part most! I like that the price is reasonable for the benefits that the Maybelline Mineral Power Powder Foundation promises to deliver.
However, I do not like the brush that came with my package. I do not like that it only has a few shades to choose from and when you’re in a hurry, powder tends to get all over the place.
