My MAD Minerals Mini Haul

I had the chance to try Mad Minerals mineral makeup thru MMU swapping with my friend Jessica. In return, I sent her samples from Coconut Bay Cosmetics & Ellana Minerals. Look what i've got:


Mica (CI 77019), Zinc Oxide (CI 77947), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77492, CI 77491), Ultramarine Blue (CI 77007)

I got three shades of foundations: Olive Light Medium, Light Golden and Olive Light.

Olive Light Medium Foundation
(for a light medium complexion with yellow undertones)

Light Golden Mineral Foundation

(for light complexions with golden peachy undertones)

Olive Light Mineral Foundation

(for light complexion with yellow undertones)

Among the three shades, the Light Golden shade is my closest match. I also got a sample of the yellow corrector:

Loose Mineral Apricot Corrector
(Warms up yellow skin tones and sallow complexions)

The foundation samples went onto my skin easily enough; it controls oiliness and the finish is just alright, but I noticed a little bit of chalkiness that I was able to buff away. Not to mention a few small bumps I had on my face that I thought were just signs that my skin was still adjusting to this brand. But they did not disappear until the 3rd day, so I discontinued playing with the samples. This would be good for people who want a heavier coverage. I prefer light coverage especially during the summer months because in my experience, heavier coverage (in most brands I’ve tried) tends to “cake” at the end of the day. However, what works and does not work on my skin does not mean that the product is not totally worth trying. Remember, we have different skin sensitivities and preferences to consider. So still, it’s for you to find out and decide on what you like, and maybe you could share your stories too. =)

By the way, I’m intrigued with Mad Minerals liquid foundation. As it claims the following with regular use: anti-aging, antioxidant, collagen renewal, hydration, protection from environmental damage and diminishes lines/ wrinkles.

Hopefully, next time I'll be able to try them and make another review.
