Hello everyone! Hope this post finds you all doing well! When I received the ‘Mineral Wet and Dry Powder Foundation’ from Studio Gear Cosmetics I was very excited because this is my second time using their product. I have previously tried their True Whipped Stain Lip Gloss which I love and still use! So, let’s dive right into it.
Revitalizing Day Serum
Formulated for all skin types with antioxidants to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Meant to enhance makeup application and finish. Can be applied over moisturizer or also mixed in with the mineral wet/dry foundation.
It is quite a thick consistency and can get a bit greasy if applied in too much. With that said, I do like it when I use the right amount of this, which is ever so little. A little goes a long way in this product and it is great to moisturize your dry skin. I use this before my makeup application which I find sets in my makeup better.
#3 Domed Foundation Brush
Love it! It is very dense with thick bristles and is prefect for buffing/makeup application.
Mineral Wet and Dry Foundation
What I found interesting with this foundation is that you can apply it 4 different ways, which means it can adapt to a lot of different people’s skin regime requirements.
- Mineral Powder: Keep it simple and buff Foundation into skin on its own or over primer.
- Serum Foundation: Mix it Up with Revitalizing Day Serum to create custom, super moisturizing coverage. (Tip, you can also mix with your favorite SPF)
- Mattifying Finishing Powder: Take it on the go to set your liquid make-up and stay matte all day.
- Cream Contour: Mix up darker and lighter shades with Protective Day Lotion for creamy, blendable, custom contour.
Mineral Powder: I tried the first three ways and I prefer number 1 and 3 more. Although, I do not usually wear powder foundations since I have dry skin, I noticed that this did not dry out my skin with one build up coverage, which is fine because I do not expect to have full coverage with powder foundations anyway. I like to buff my powder foundation on when I’m on the go or if it is a particularly hot day where I do prefer my makeup to be light and easy. But yes, with the second layer of coverage it does dry my skin out a tiny bit but that is literally just my skin so I can very much assume that this powder foundation by itself would do wonders to people with normal or oily skin.
Serum Foundation: I found step number 2 decent but not great. You would think that I would like that the best since I prefer liquid foundations but it did cake up and dry my skin with a second layer of coverage. Again a little goes a long way with the serum and if just a tinsy amount is used with one layer of coverage it does appear fine. Personally, I find this step a little too much work and it can get a bit messy mixing the two in so I would not use the foundation in this particular way.
Mattifying Finishing Powder: I did like alternative number 3 because it is great if you would want a very slight mattyfying effect after you have applied your liquid foundation. Again this step would work best for oily skin in my opinion.
Overall, I love the brush the most and like I said I would use the mineral powder foundation by itself for a light to medium coverage. All of these products, except the day serum would probably work best for normal or oily skin, so you have one of those you can give these a go! However, I would recommend the day serum to dry skin people out there.

Hope this was helpful and would love to know if anyone has any good recommendations for powder foundation that would work great for dry skin as well!??
