I just wanna get this out of the way because it's really the only drawback to this product. Stuff your collar full of napkins and clear your table, or otherwise wear something that won't streaks, because if there's a clean way to apply the stuff, I haven't found it.
That said... oh, my God, this is the best foundation type EVER!
I'd have never thought to try this until essiebutton used the Tarte mineral foundation in one of her tutorials. (I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. Lotta mineral foundation has been popping up on my dash, is all I'm sayin'.) But now that I think about it, I realize it's the only way to go. Lightweight and fairly easy to apply (if messy) it's a base that doesn't feel like a base. In fact, if it wasn't for my evened-out complexion, I wouldn't have known it's there.
And you know what? I think even my complexion has been doing a little better since I started using mineral foundation. There's a lot of contributing factors, such as my new and improved skincare routine, and my attempts to eat better, but still, I'd say that the foundation I've been using has been pulling its weight as well.
Along with the Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals foundation, I also got a slanted kabuki brush, which I got for no other reason beyond the fact that... well, it's slanted. I figured it would be better to suit for my face, and you know, I think I like it a lot. I mean, it doesn't stop powder from flying everywhere, but still, not bad.
Actually, the Body Shop make-up has so far been quite good for me. I think it's my favourite product selection of theirs so far.
