TBS: Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation

Hey guys!

If you don't already know, The Body Shop came out with a new line of mineral foundations a few months ago I believe. The foundation comes in a powder form, liquid and also cream form. I went there more than a month ago just because I had this 50% off voucher Sharon gave me and I've decided to get one of these foundations to try them out. Was torn between the liquid and cream ones and the sales assistance tried to help me out by telling me what the differences between them are and I finally decided to go for the liquid foundation. As usual.

I got the one in the shade Rose Vanilla. I wasn't sure how well this color would match me coz it has a pink undertone and my skin tone is more on the yellow side. But as you can see in the shots taken later that it has no problem of blending into my skin and evening out my skin tone and looking perfectly awesome!

Love that it comes with a PUMP!

Before and after

The texture of this foundation is pretty liquidy-creamy in comparison to say, Revlon's Photoready or even Skin79's Hot Pink BB Cream. I'd say it has a light to medium coverage and might not be for those who love their full-coverage types of foundation such as the Revlon's ColorStay foundation. This is perfect for everyday use just because it feels light on the skin and doesn't cake on you. Love the quality of this foundation! It's definitely better than their older version, TBS Oil free balancing foundation.

The staying power is so-so. I get greasy really quickly no matter what sort of foundation I used so this particular one is no different. I gotta get me some of those Skindinavia setting sprays! After using this it doesn't leave my face matte at all, more like dewy. So I suggest using a powder after if you have oil-combo skin.

The only downside for this product is the price. 28ml of product for BND$37.90. If I'm not mistaken Revlon's PhotoReady and ColorStay foundation both retails for BND20+ for 30ml of product. For someone like me though, I think it's worth the money if the quality is good. Especially since we're putting these stuff on our face. Plus, it's a mineral foundation! It's actually better for our skin than the normal drugstore ones... I think. :))
