Review: Everyday Minerals Semi-Matte Base - Olive Medium


What is it?
Semi-matte base creates a hydrating soft dewy complexion with medium to full coverage and feels creamy to the touch. Suitable for all skin types. Formulated without lake dyes and preservatives.  Each Big size comes in a closeable sifter component for portability.

For medium to tan olive complexions with yellow undertones. (via the website)

Retail Price: $12 for large size, $2.50 for sample size

Where to buy:

My thoughts and experience:
I was so pleased with some of the things that was sent to me from Everyday Minerals that I just had to buy this foundation. You may be wondering how I found my color with an online website... well, they have a special offer online for free small sizes of mineral foundations in certain color ranges. I would definitely encourage you to get free sample to help you choose the right color for your skin.

Anyway, onto the product. I love the way this product is packaged. It's in a round, shallow container with a lid and a rotating sifter. The sifter can be swiveled to open or close to help keep the product fresh and avoid any spillage. This is a great plus for me because I've spilled and wasted alot of mineral makeup before.

The color is a medium olive color with a yellow base undertone (perfect for my Asian skin). It's always hard for me to find foundations with a yellow undertone - it's always a pink or golden undertone. It glides on smoothly on my face without any caking at all. The minerals in the foundation give off a little shimmer, but not too much to make my face look oily or anything. It looks dewy throughout the day. I would say that it offers medium to full coverage with this product. I brush on one or two layers to help even my skin tone and cover red spots around my cheeks. There are actually four types of formulas on their foundation bases. I chose the semi-matte base because It works well with my dry skin, I just need to make sure I moisturize well before using this product.

I am very pleased with this foundation, and will purchase it again.
