Everyday minerals makeup is pretty good. The coverage is decent enough for me. I break out rather frequently and so I like to hide any red marks from zits. I use their foundation and their multi-tasking concealer in order to achieve the best coverage.
They also offer 4 different formulas for all of their foundations and I find mixing the original glow with matte or intensive gives you a slightly dewy look that I really enjoy although it's not quite as dewy looking as Bare Minerals, which rather saddens me. But, if you like the matte look, then their matte or intensive formulas would be great.
Their makeup is very inexpensive compared to other leading brands of mineral makeup, which is a plus and their flat top face brush is the best brush I've ever used. They are surely worth a try and they do offer free sample kits so you can find a good foundation match for your skin tone. I'm thinking of giving Afterglow brand a try though just to see if I get a more glowy, dewy look.
Thank you Lindsey for the review.
For anyone considering Everyday Minerals here are the ingredients:
Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Iron Oxide (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288), Ultramarines (CI 77007). *Original Glo and Semi-Matte contain zinc oxide (CI 77947).
I also checked out the different formulas of foundations that Lindsey mentioned. It's a nice feature that not all companies do. They offer a semi-matte: provides a slight glo, matte: pure matte finish, it base: natural looking matte, and original glo base: subtle but dewy glo. Semi matte and matte are recommended for all skin types. The It base is good for normal to oily types and the original glo for normal to dry skin.
Nice selection of all over glo powders in a variety of colors too.
I like their stand on animal testing not only of their own products but they also require their suppliers to sign an affidavit stating that they also do not conduct animal testing at all. They also carry cruelty free makeup brushes made from synthetic hair.
