I received my two samples of Maybelline’s Mineral Power foundation in the mail. I tend to prefer sampling foundations before I try a new one since it helps to know how your skin will react, test colors, and you get an idea of the actual coverage. My samples came in Nude and Pure Beige which blended well into my medium-fair skin.
The coverage is perfect for me. It covered my under-eye circles and slight melasma and yet didn’t feel like I was wearing a mask. Mineral Power goes on as a liquid but quickly dries to an almost powder like finish and leaves your skin soft. It works really well as a mineral makeup primer too! Just top it off with your favorite loose minerals, buff, and go. Maybelline has really upped the ante in drugstore foundation makeup with this offering. When my normal tinted moisturizer supply is depleted, I’ll definitely pick up a tube of this to keep on hand for days when I want a little extra coverage. Oh, and it packs SPF 15 (yah!).
Grab Maybelline’s Mineral Power Makeup at your local drugstore or Target/Walmart or online at Drugstore.com ($8.29).
