Having a workstation located a few meters away from the workstation of someone who sells makeup is quite challenging. You need to muster every effort you can in order to stay away from temptation that is the colorful makeup that can potentially hurt the pocket. But last week I gave in when I see this Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Powder Foundation.

I gave in not because this is the best ever mineral powder foundation that has ever existed but because I haven’t had a mineral powder foundation before and I am curious about how it will work for me. Additionally, this one comes with a mini kabuki so I think it’s a good deal. ;)
Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Powder Foundation has transparent acrylic container and brown twist cap. Like most mineral powder foundation and blushers, this one has sifter where the product goes through and lessens the mess.

The shade I got is classic ivory light 2. I got this for Php 350.

What I like about this product:
First thing I like about this powder foundation is that it has SPF 18 sunscreen. You know, from the time I learned that excessive sun exposure contributes to aging and may cause skin cancer; I have been aiming to use sun protection skin care products as much as possible. Thus when I saw the “SPF 18 sunscreen” printed on the label, I scored this product one point.

Other mineral products I tried smell awful but this one is different. It is being true to its “no fragrance” claim. It also has no preservatives, no oils and talc. The absence of talc prevents or at least lessens the clogging of pores and we all know that clogged pores usually cause blackheads and pimples.
I love how this powder foundation helps lessen the oil on my face. I only need to lightly blot my face a few times a day, which is not possible before because blotting was necessary almost every hour. This product’s lasting power is admirable as well. I only apply once in the morning before leaving the house and I didn’t see the need to re-apply even after eight hours. Yes, I’m not the one who applies heavy makeup but I just knew it when the foundation lasts on my skin or not. This mineral powder foundation is ideal for practical women like me because a little goes a long way. Aside from that, it also provides you more spare time since re-application many times a day is not really necessary.
Based on the label, active ingredient of this product is titanium dioxide 5%. Upon checking Cosdna, a cosmetic analyzer website, the said ingredient functions as pigment sunscreen. It has considerable UVA and extensive UVB. It is less likely to cause acne and has 0 irritant.

So yes, you will surely get what you paid for with Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Powder Foundation.

What I do not like about this product:
I wish the jar has a sort of stopper after the sifter to prevent the powder from going through the holes when not in use and messing the whole jar in the end. I think that is the only thing I do not like about this product.

This may not be the product itself but since it comes with the purchase, I must confess that the small kabuki brush isn’t that amazing at all. It’s somewhat hard making it difficult to blend. You are more likely to have uneven application because of that. I ditch the Maybelline brush for a softer brush to have that even and flawless finish and make application easy.

Will I repurchase?
