Today I’m sharing with you the Antipodes Mineral Powder Foundation. I am really excited about this product as I am a fan of Antipodes products as a whole. So, when I got sent this product I was really excited to give the cosmetics side of Antipodes a try.
This mineral foundation offers light coverage and an extremely natural, but flawless look. To apply, I simply applied a small amount on the lid then applied the foundation all over with a kabuki brush, and applying more product as needed to areas that needed more coverage. I was extremely pleased to see that additional powder could be added to said areas without appearing caked on, or unnatural.
As you might have gathered, my initial concern was whether or not this foundation would be able to give my problematic skin proper coverage, and whether or not those specific skin concerns could be met. I am very happy (and quite surprised) to report that this amazing foundation has reduced the flushing in my cheeks, and its earth minerals have balanced the oil production – so much so that I can wear this all day and not have to reapply any powder to my nose as there is no indication of excess oil being produced.
When it comes to purchasing makeup, I’ve always been a bit wary of purchasing online as my traditionally olive skin can vary in shade depending on the seasons. I took a quite calculated risk by selecting their light yellow shade, but it has been working absolutely perfectly with my skin. I’ve always preferred the natural make up look when it comes to what actually goes on my skin (ie: foundation, powder, etc.), and as colour selection can sometimes be quite hit and miss it’s rare that you find a product that provides both coverage, and a flawless natural look, this product does both. You can find it in pale pink, light yellow, medium beige, and tan; and I truly believe that the fact that their are only four shades makes the matching process so much more simple, and streamlined.
I am extremely glad that I decided on this product, as it is now going to be my go to foundation. I’ve been using it on a daily basis for a couple of weeks and my skin is glowing! Packed with the revolutionary Vinanza Performance Plus®, an antioxidant-packed extract from sauvignon blanc grape seeds and the skin of the superfruit kiwifruit, and SPF 17; this foundation doesn’t only look good on your skin, it does your skin good as well!
