I’ve been a fan of Annmarie Skincare for a few years now (see here and here), and with the introduction of their new mineral foundation, Minerals by Annmarie, that love I have for them has just gotten stronger!
This foundation is truly like none that I have ever tried. For one thing, it is incredibly versatile. Apply it dry for a matte finish or mix a bit of your favorite oil or moisturizer in for a more dewy effect. I’ve tried it a few different ways, and the results were the same – great coverage, long wear, no caking or streaking, and absolutely no breakouts! You can adjust the coverage to suit your skin type and preference too so no worries about looking like you are wearing a “mask”! There are only four shades right now, but you can mix them up to create your perfect match (more info and tips are here)! 🙂
Another thing that I really love about this foundation is that even when applied dry, it is hydrating and gives a nice glow to the skin (courtesy of light reflecting mica), and you only need the teeeeniest amount to get amazing full coverage! I also don’t even know I am wearing make-up, even after hours of having it on, which is un-heard of for me! This truly is the most comfortable mineral make-up I have ever worn! Like ever!

For my oily, yet often times dehydrated, acne scarred skin, this foundation has been a face saver for me! And amazingly, I was able to find great matches with both “Pearl” (when worn over their “Sun Love”) and “Sand” (when worn alone), another huge plus for me!
