Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 20
This mineral powder foundation is outstanding, the best powder I have ever put on my face, and I have tried a LOT of different ones (from cheap brands to expensive). It does everything it claims to do in the description. It is so ultra-fine in texture and just disappears into your skin, unlike a lot of other mineral powders that seem to look cakey and sit on top of your skin. Plus you can build coverage as much as you want, and it still doesn't look heavy or powdery. It also does not have any kind of unnatural sheen or shimmer to it that some mineral powders have. And it controls oil better than any makeup I have ever used before, and I have really oily skin, so that is a huge plus for me! Also a plus is the added broad spectrum SPF. All in all, it just really looks and feels amazing on the skin. The container it comes in is also really great, because there is no powder mess flying everywhere when you are applying. Not sure how well it works once you get down to the bottom, or if there is much wasted powder that gets left in the bottom. Also, it would be nice if the container was clear so you could see how much is left. The only real downside for me, though, is that the lightest shade available in Canada (Pure Finish 2) is still just a fraction too dark, so I really wish there was a lighter version available here.
I just purchased this. I've tried products here and there, but I always end up going back to Elizabeth Arden. This mineral powder blends so well with my skin, to the point where I forget that I've even put it on. It is light, and a little bit goes a long ways. I found that I initially applied too much and it got powdery (understandably). A little dab will go a long way, which is how I feel about a lot of EA products. I have also been using the Dual Perfection Brow Shaper & Eyeliner for the past 8 years, and it has never failed me!
nice looking but
do not last and it is too expensive. In the past EA products last the whole day.
Great coverage, looks natural, lasts all day.
