I really wanted to like it

By Y.

from USA

Comments about SheaMoisture Mineral Powder Foundation:

I really wanted to like it but it was really powdery and chalky, I wished it was more buttery and smooth. It also seemed as if it was just sitting on my skin and accentuating my imperfections.
Will try to use it in different ways and see if anything changes.
Love how it's cruelty free and paraben free though, 3 stars for that! It also covers up redness well.

      Comments about SheaMoisture Mineral Powder Foundation:

      I am have always been a MAC lady when it came to my makeup. But after trying SheaMositure makeup line, I have not been back to MAC since. I have truly sensitive skin also so I refuse to use just anything on my skin. You do not have to use a lot to apply, it is so light once applied, and it truly gives you such a natural look. Not to mention the price of SheaMositure makeup line is very reasonable and a lot less then MAC.

            I thought it would try it since it had good reviews and it was at an affordable price. I liked the coverage it gave me and it matched my skin perfectly. I have acne and discoloration from acne and this didn't cause breakouts and it covered my imperfections well. I will buy again.

              Comments about SheaMoisture Mineral Powder Foundation:

              This is hands down the best powder type of makeup I've ever tried. And I've tried a lot! It's full coverage and the color ( I use tan on my fair skin) makes my skin look so healthy and even. It does not cake up and it looks great from morning to late night. The best part is that Shea moisture make up actually IMPROVES my skin! I tend to have acne and dry spots at the same time (ugh!). But with this line of products When I wash my face at night my skin actually looks better than it did in the morning! Please, never stop making this!!!

                      • Q:

                        I have medium skin with yellow undertones. My skin is oily so most foundations do oxidize on me throughout the day and turn very pink (even if it has the slightest bit of cool/pink tones in it). Which shade would you recommend as being the most yellow based for medium skin? (I am MAC NC40 if that helps). Thank you!
