Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Availability, Price, One day application, Minimal smearing
Cons:I can find nothing to say negative about this product
The Bottom Line: BUY BUY BUY!!! You won't be disappointed
I am sure you have all done it at some point in your make-up years; you give someone a hug and to your horrified surprise, half your face is left on their shirt. Not only are you embarrassed, but also trying to clean the base off of the shirt is like trying to clean up an oil spill with a toothbrush. Well ladies (or guys) I have the secret to the revolutionary make-up that is going to change the way you feel about getting ready every day.

Looking on the internet I see “shop here! 2 to 3 business day shipping.” That is groovy and all but how about the convenience of being able to run down to the local Wal-Mart, Walgreens, or smiths and having it there in your hands within minutes. That’s right no need to wait by the mailbox, you can physically go down to any make-up selling store and buy it. Not only do you get the joy of shopping, but you can actually compare the Mineral Wear to your specific skin tone. There is no guessing game here and no disappointment when you get home.
How does $17.95 sound to you? To me, it sounds ridiculous. Right now, you can go online and shop for this product and pay almost double the price you would if you went to Wal-Mart plus you get the added bonus of waiting 2-3 business days. I have been purchasing this product for a couple years now and I have paid no more than $12 for this product. This may sound a little pricey to you right now…. But let me finish.
The mineral wear comes in a variety of shades. For those of you sleep in tanning beds, they have the color you need to look natural (which is tricky because most people’s ancestry aren’t orange). For those of us who were blessed with the pasty pale almost translucent skin, yes they have the perfect shade for you as well. I have always struggled finding a color that best suits white skin. My face has been either an ompa lumpa orange, or a pasty vampire until I found Mineral Wear.
When comparing this powder mineral wear to the liquid base I have personally found the mineral wear lasts twice as long. With base you have to reapply because it turns into bisquick, however, with the mineral wear one application is all you need. The design of the powder is to latch on to your tiny hairs and make your skin look one color. With one application a day I have to buy mineral wear every 5-6 months. When you figure the product is $12 that is less than 2 dollars a month you are spending on make-up.
Smears on a scale of 0-5 (0 being lowest, 5 being highest)
I would rate mineral wear at a 1 for smearing. Finally I don't have to feel uncomfortable about a guy touching my face. He no longer has to wipe his hands on his jeans to rid himself of the bisquick base. He can caress my face and feel my soft sensual skin. I can put on a white shirt and the collar is no longer discolored.
I have never had perfect skin (who has) and when I used liquid base my face always broke out. Here I was trying to use liquid base to cover up my imperfections and here is the liquid base creating those imperfections. With the mineral wear powder zits are minimal, of course I get them but it isn't because of my make-up. The mineral wear is gentle on the skin and being talc free doesn't clog pores.
