Lately, I have been all about mineral powder foundation. It just works well for me; I have long lasting coverage that’s really easy to apply. When I found something that gave me portability and convenience as well, I snapped it up right away.
Susan Posnick’s ColorFlo mineral powder foundation has the portability I’ve been looking for. It comes with a self-dispensing refillable brush and you can control your coverage based on how you use the brush. You can stiple the brush over your skin for fuller coverage or simply sweep over the face for sheerer coverage. The brush itself is not the softest brush I have ever used but I’ve found that it does not irritate my skin as I buff away. With just one click, I have all the foundation I need for the day. It does settle in any lines and it doesn’t look cakey if I apply more foundation on top of it. I’ve actually been skipping concealer because I find the results I’m getting with the foundation are better. Added bonus: it doesn’t settle in my under eye area as other concealer does.
There is a drawback here… the price. At a whopping $64, this is a very pricey foundation but here’s why; you’re paying half of that for the applicator. After that, you can purchase $32 refills with your shade. I had a problem with the price at first but I ahead anyway, I knew it would be much cheaper when I went for the refill, but still. Given that the brush isn’t a spectacularly high quality brush, I have to wonder about this pricing. I’ll let you be the judge of whether the price is right for you or not.
