Revlon ColorStay Mineral Foundation

300.jpg

Revlon, like just about everyone else, has entered the mineral makeup market. I rate their effort, Revlon Colorstay Mineral Foundation in the fair to OK category–I just can’t find anything special about this one. This powder foundation provides decent sheer coverage at a fairly good price. For those that require an included brush, it also […]

Ferro Cosmetics Mineral Makeup

Another entry into the ever growing area of mineral makeup is Ferro Cosmetics. I recently tried a few of their all natural products and was happy with them. The mineral foundation is pure mineral and pigment. Unlike some brands, it is not cut with bismuth or talc–something that will be of interest for those looking […]

Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation Mineral Makeup

A number of members of the Beauty Blog Network will be attending and posting about New York Fashion Week, which begins today! As much as I wish I could be there, I declined in order to go to Texas to visit family. But that doesn’t mean that you need to be left out on all […]

Review: Maybelline Mineral Power Liquid Foundation

Maybelline Mineral Power Liquid Mineral Makeup

Maybelline has jumped on the mineral makeup bandwagon and released a full line of mineral cosmetics. It is also so new, that it isn’t on their website yet! However, it is in at Target and other stores, but selling out fast in my area of the Chicago suburbs. Since I have been up to my […]

Pur Minerals Under Control Mattifying Gel

Under Control Pur Minerals Mattifying Gel

I was pretty impressed with the Pur Minerals Mattifying Gel for Oily Skin. I had a sample of this product sitting around for some time, and go figure that I was fairly oily during that time and forgot to give it a try! But as things turned out, on a day when I was a […]

Mineral Fusion Special at Whole Foods Market

Mineral Fusion Mineral Makeup Kit

I have always loved Whole Foods Market. When I lived in Nebraska, I was jealous of my friends in Omaha who had one. Now that I am in Illinois, I have a Whole Foods Market, but I wish it were closer! I have reason to make another trip now. Whole Foods is spending October focusing […]

Review: Everyday Minerals Mineral Makeup

Everyday Minerals

After receiving a recommendation, I gave mineral makeup from Everyday Minerals a try. I had pretty good results and was also pleased to see that they provide samples for the cost of shipping. I purchased samples of the mineral makeup in matte and intensive formulas. That package included a concealer that as far as I could […]

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Starter Kit: Mineral Makeup, Brushes, Blush and Bronzer

I really like mineral foundation/makeup, but for whatever reason, it had been years since I used bareMinerals foundation from Bare Escentuals. I use their eye shimmers pretty often and just love those, but I had been experimenting with other brands when it came to foundation. I recently decided to give them a new try and […]

Review: Jane Be Pure Minerals, a Good Value Mineral Makeup

I have really been nuts over mineral makeup lately. I keep seeing more and more of it in the stores and I keep buying it! Recently I tried another drugstore brand with pretty good results. Jane Mineral Be Pure Makeup is very reasonably priced. I believe I paid around $6 for mine at Osco. Further, […]
