There are two different GloMinerals Liquid Mineral Foundation formulations - they have different finishes - matte and satin. The matte formula is for oily skin, the satin for normal and dry. GloMinerals was a front runner in the "makeup with benefits" category by incorporating skin care ingredients in their foundations.
Both foundations are named gloProtective because the focus of both is to protect the skin. They do this by incorporating antioxidants and broad spectrum UV protection (both UVA - skin aging and drug sensitivity and UVB).
This is the original GloMinerals foundation. It has a matte finish and is for oily skin - it contains ingredients that absorb excess oil. It has an SFP of 18 and provides medium to full coverage. In addition to sun protection and oil absorption, it contains skincare antioxidants (vitamins A, C, E and green tea extract).
The original matte formulation is
only available in golden, golden-light, beige and honey.
Beige - pink or peach undertone
Golden -Yellow or olive undertone golden fair
Golden-light - peach or yellow undertone
