I remember when mineral foundation was as huge as highlighters and matte lipsticks. What do you think, was it early 2000s when Bare Minerals was blowing up the makeup world? I remember infomercials featuring Bare Minerals being applied apparently to women who had unknowingly gone to the Mall of the America that day not realizing they’d come out of that mall with their mind blown courtesy a new mineral foundation.
Holy Mineral Madness Batman! I’m flawless!
Those commercials were really fun.
Needless to say, they also sold me on the fact that I NEEDED mineral foundation in my life like ASAP. Not yesterday, not last week, not two minutes ago, but RIGHT NOW! Obviously I was delusional about the fact that mineral foundation sucks hard on drier skin.
Bismuth oxychloride. Forged in Hell by Lucifer himself or Tim Curry whichever you like. Instead of “eat, drink…” He’d be standing over you saying, “Buff, Tap…” Bismuth can only be compared to letting loose a bunch of tiny ants under your skin and having them crawl around rather rapidly.
For me, mineral foundation is a total nay! No matter how I apply it, I end up looking like a cake face, and also it clings to all my drier areas. Even in the Summer when I really would like to use it still doesn’t work for me!
Not only that but most mineral foundations make me itch! I hate it with a passion.
What about you?
Yay or nay on mineral foundation?
By the way, I really like mineral blushes and eyeshadows just keep the foundation far away from me.
