After reading your rave reviews about Everyday Minerals, I knew I had to give them a shot (read a ton of tips and tricks here!). I ordered them a couple months ago and have been testing them for about 4 weeks now!
Just a note: I am not getting paid or given product for this review!
You can try out Everyday Minerals for FREE! All I had to pay for was $5 shipping to CAD. Awesome.
I ordered the Try Me Base-Light:
I also ordered an eye shadow trio (review to come!)
I liked that they have a much shorter ingredient list than Bare Minerals!
How to apply:
SWIRL, TAP, BUFF (From Bare Minerals website)
What did I think of the Everyday Minerals?
- Much cheaper than Bare Minerals
- Shorter and safer ingredient list
- Good coverage
- Lots of variety to choose from (shades, skin types, different coverage levels)
- Blended well
- Emphasized dry skin in big way (must must must exfoliate and moisturize very well beforehand!)
- You really need the brushes for it to work as it should
- Showed fine lines more than my foundation does
When I first tried the Everyday Minerals I was using a regular old powder brush. I had BAD results using a regular brush. I couldn’t figure out why my skin looked so dry and the powder looked so cakey. I remembered some of you saying that you really need to use the proper brushes, so I invested in the Long Handled Kabuki brush (only cost me $10!). This brush made the world of difference! It didn’t show my dry skin as much.
I had to be very careful to exfoliate and moisturize before each use or dry flakes would show up. I wasn’t thrilled that the minerals tend to exaggerate fine lines, but overall it is not a deal breaker for me.
The coverage was better than I thought it would be, but sometimes I felt like I had to put on lots of layers to get the coverage I wanted. I probably would not use Everyday Minerals for important events because I prefer the dewy sheer finish of foundation. However, I do see Everyday Minerals as a great day-to-day alternative to foundation!
The ‘Original Glo’ base is meant for dry skin and I preferred this one out of all of them!
I dislike the mess. I improved the clean up time by putting a damp paper towel underneath my area. The damp towel ‘catches’ the powder that escapes. It helped a ton!
I LOVED how quick and easy it was to put on. Anyone can do it. I loved using it before running out the door to the post office or grocery store. Often I am too busy to put make-up on during the day, so this gives me a polished and professional look in just a few minutes.
What do you use on your skin? Foundation, powder, nothing at all?
Do you use Mineral foundation? What has your experience been?
