* I need to take a moment to apologize...I did not get the opportunity to take decent photos of the actual products. I have been using them and they don't look so "pretty" anymore. Please accept the photos directly from SFRbeauty's website and a few of the products I swatched. Thank you! *
One of the products that I had the absolute pleasure of trying was the Liquid Mineral Foundation. This 100% vegan product is paraben free and contains no fillers or fragrances. Unfortunately, the shade I tried was not a complete match for my skin, but I made it work, and it felt amazing! The color lasted all day long and was extremely light weight. I almost forgot I had makeup on, and that rarely happens! I would say that it provided me with full coverage and made my skin look absolutely flawless. This foundation is perfect for those with sensitive skin; and wonderful for those with skin conditions like acne or rosacea, as this product enhances cell growth to help rejuvenate dull and tired skin.
I’ll be honest…I am not a huge fan of pressed powder foundations, but the Advanced Minerals Pressed Powder is perfect to carry around for those occasional touchups. Again, this product didn’t match my skin perfectly, as I needed a lighter shade, but like the liquid foundation, it felt great! This product is very lightweight and contains natural sunscreen which is amazing since I am a huge advocate of sun safety. Furthermore, I noticed that it didn’t settle in the creases of my face (and yes…at 25 years old…I have those), therefore I believe that this powder would work beautifully for aging individuals.
Advanced Mineral Kit – Day Palette
Me and palettes…we get along quite well! I am a huge sucker for makeup palettes and I was so excited to see that I recieved the Day Palette! Advanced Minerals does not contain many eyeshadows, as they only currently produce foundation, powders, concealers and a few brushes. Hopefully, in the future they begin to manufacture more eyeshadows and blushes because I love their cosmetics. The Day Palette is beautiful and contains 4 shadows, 1 blush and 1 cream luminizer. The packaging for this product seems a little flimsy, and I feel if I were to drop it, the makeup inside would not be protected, so I’ll be completely honest and say I wasn’t too thrilled with that. However, the colors inside really are gorgeous, pigmented and extremely versatile to create a daytime or even nighttime look. However, if you are looking for a palette to create more smokey looks, have no fear...Advanced Minerals also has a Night Palette!
The benefits of using Advanced Minerals are endless and it's fantastic for your skin. Unfortunately, I don't own many mineralized cosmetics, so I am thrilled that these products have been added to my collection! To purchase or review these products, please visit SFRbeauty's website.
