Krave Mineral Luxurious Perfection Loose Mineral Foundation | Review, Swatch and Photos
Ruffa of Jailex Couture contacted me a few weeks back and sent me some samples of the much-raved Krave Minerale Cosmetics. I've seen it in vlogs and various local beauty blogs. She wanted me to try out selected products that she thinks my skin would enjoy.
Trying out the Luxurious Perfection loose mineral foundation, I have to agree with her. This mineral foundation is awesome. Like it's predecessors it has great skin care qualities that controls oil, gives my skin smoother appearance and reduces the chances for acne. Thanks to its 4 key ingredients:
- Levomenol - anti-irritant, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory
- Allantoin - protects the skin, moisturizing
- Golden Jojoba - moisturizing and helps with evening out skin tone
- Pro Vitamin B5 - lessens oil production and reduces chances of acne
Makeup wise, Luxurious Perfection provides great coverage. It goes well with my liquid foundation as well as alone. The finish has a slight sheen to it but not quite visible on the skin. It gives natural-looking effect while hiding away blemishes with it's medium to heavy coverage. I like that it's photogenic and allows my skin to breathe. A great mineral makeup foundation to use on a daily basis.
- Great at oil control (2 to 4 hours)
- Provides medium to heavy coverage
- Good for everyday use
- Doesn't break me out
- Reduces skin blemishes
- Great additional skin care benefits
French Latte is the lightest shade, I think, and it matches m medium fair skin tone.
Why use mineral foundation?
For many women I know, a lot prefer mineral makeup. It has lesser ingredients, great for sensitive and acne-ridden skin! It also contains no preservatives, allergens and other harmful chemicals. A great addition is that it's affordable and easily available.
If you're tired of cosmetics breaking you out or just find them too expensive, then you might want to try mineral makeup instead.
There are a lot of mineral makeup available now. Krave Minerale is one of the newest players in town. They are highly against animal-testing and boasts of using only natural and organic ingredients. Their makeup line doesn't only stop with colors but they also offer solutions such as skin care and other cosmeceutical products.
