No really, I was quick to respond because I have never used any kind of mineral makeup but I have always heard great things about it. I have to admit, I am not adventurous with makeup, mostly because I don't know what to purchase or if it's right for my skin type. So I tend to stick to what I know.
I was send the Liquid Foundation to try and like any beauty product I like to use if for a good few weeks before I can make my assessment.
As a working mom of a toddler with another on the way and a generally very busy mamá, I am always on the run and I save my "makeup face" for days that I have work meetings or events to attend (or a last minute photo shoot with Washingtonian Magazine!)
This doesn't mean that I don't moisturize and like to look my best. It just has to be minimal effort and easy to apply. This is where the Advanced Mineral Makeup Liquid Foundation fit into perfectly into my daily routine.
My past experiences with foundation have always been very heavy and gooey and have left a paste like sensation on my face drying up quickly and then flaking off. So the fact that you can't feel this and that it stays fresh throughout the day was what won me over. The lightness of the product enhances the appearance of my skin.
- I tend to break out from harsh products and this foundation is sensitive skin friendly
- The foundation works with your skin - it boosts the natural function of the skin by stimulating cell grown to rejuvenate tired skin
- It comes in 7 shades, so something for everyone!

The line is sold online and in spas, salons and dermatologist's offices around the country. You can see a full list of retailers here: http://advancedmineralmakeup.com/www/locations/
The foundation is a bit pricey - slightly out of my budget, but if you consider how much you get out of it, the $44 you pay for it goes a long way.
Advanced Mineral Makeup is a 100% natural makeup line. Unlike other makeup brands, it contains no parabens, preservatives, or harsh chemicals that would irritate your skin. Trust me, my skin would have reacted right away!
Products were used on the set of Grey's Anatomy and NCIS because it's so camera-friendly - a bit of Hollywood glam!
My final say: Advanced Mineral Makeup does what it says on the label. Make sure you find the right tone for your skin and then look your best! I like to invest in key fashion pieces, and I am now convinced that I should be investing in key makeup products such as this one.
