A lot of hauls these days well, next week will be my birthday so I need a little treat
So, since Everyday Minerals doesn’t ship to Italy I had to look for an European site, also to avoid custom duties.
The service is good: they prepared my pack the same day I ordered it and it’s arrived with a signed for shipping after a week. Shipping costs are high though: £7.
Recently my skin (acne prone) is drier than usual and all foundations (mineral and traditional) mark any dry area.
I already tried Everyday Minerals foundation and I loved it, so I was pretty curious about this new formula with Jojoba oil.
Because shades are different from other formulas I chose some samples (in Semi-Matte base I’m Fair):
- Alabaster: for fair cool skins
- Cream: for fair neutral skins
- Vanilla: for fair to light neutral skins
- Shell Blanc: for fair warm skins
On me Shell Blanc is too yellownish but it’s not really golden.
Vanilla could be perfect in summer.
Alabaster and Cream are almost the same on me: I really can’t tell which one I wear.
I applied these with a flatbuki (the Catbuki from Neve Cosmetics) and I was really pleased with result: Jojoba base foundation has a medium coverage but it’s buildable to achieve a perfect, complete coverage.
It’s different from any mineral foundation with a creamy texture (Buff’d for example): Everyday Minerals Jojoba base is so lightweight that you can’t see it when you put on. It blends into skin without any heaviness and leave skin extremely soft, like airbrushed velvet.
Most important thing: it’s not powdery at all, it doesn’t seem a mineral foundation; it doesn’t mark dry patches nor fine lines. The result is natural, youthful and sophisticated at the same time.
Obviously, it’s most indicated for normal-dry skins. Though Jojoba oil is good for combination and oily skins, I think that this foundation could be too dewy on really oily skins, especially during hot days.
On me it last all day long, such as every other mineral foundation.
Then I chose Everyday Minerals Itahake and Yachiyo brushes for contouring now that I found my perfect contour shade: Mac Strada blush.
They are both traditional Japanese brushes, so charming
Cruelty free with synthetic bristles and wooden handle.
They are the perfect size for my face. Application is incredibly smooth and really precise: you put on product exactly where you want without any streakness or harsh line.
Both of them apply product and at the same time they blend it easily.
I use Itahake for the contour shade and Yachiyo for highlighter: the perfect couple. How could I lived before without them?
