L'oreal Mineral Makeup Review

by Vicki

I have never really been sure of trying mineral makeup before as I just thought it would be like any other powder. I was tempted to try it however when I saw it on offer.

I wasn't sure how to use it at all. I find the application process difficult as the brush you use was on a flat oval which meant there was nothing to grip onto. It was quite messy and ended up with powder on the bed sheets and clothes.

The product itself was very lightweight but I prefer to use a liquid foundation as then you feel that you have a better coverage. I didn't feel like i was wearing anything on my face and felt the need to constantly check in the mirror to see if I was actually wearing foundation.

I would recommend this foundation to someone who likes a light coverage but I am not convinced that mineral makeup is best so I will therefore be sticking to my liquid foundation in the future!

Editor's Note:

Thanks Vicki!

This makeup is rated a 3 which is considered a moderate hazard on the Skin Deep Database. The micronized minerals which gave this product a higher rating are commonly considered higher risk because of concerns over inhalation. In this case it is not known if the minerals are nano sized which is considered a real unknown and potentially dangerous or if they are micronized which are larger particles and considered safer.

This product does contain bismuth oxychloride, a safe natural ingredient but for many women is an allergen.

Loreal Bare Naturale Mineral Makeup Review

by Shari
(Largo, Florida, USA)

Evens out skintone nicely. Supplied brush is good if you don't need the usual handle. Concealer is amazing!

I have mature skin with some wrinkling and red blotches, as well as dark circles. Covers beautifully and naturally, not settling into creases. I had a little trouble choosing shade ... looked right in jar, but too light when actually opened and used. But I then bought a darker shade and combined some of each, making up a good match with the added benefit of a highlighter (pure lighter shade) and shader (darker shade) for contouring. All looks very natural as long as you use a circular motion when applying with brush.
