GloMinerals Pressed Mineral Foundation

GloMinerals Pressed Mineral Foundation

GloMinerals Pressed Mineral Foundation is called GloPressed Base and is available in 17 shades.  It is one of the best and most popular pressed foundations.  (The other two are PurMinerals and Jane Iredale.)

GloPressed Base promises oil-free flawless, matte coverage that is silkier, adheres to the skin better, and provides spectacular lasting coverage.

GloPressed base is formulated using antioxidants (vitamins A, C, E and green tea extract), high-pigment minerals and broad spectrum UV sun protection (SPF 18).   The sun protection it provides is physical not chemical.  The addition of skin care products into the makeup formula makes it a "makeup with benefits".

This is a very good foundation that provides sheer to full coverage, depending on how much you apply.  It is best to use a makeup brush and apply a little at the time.  One common mistake to those new to pressed foundation ia applying too much at once.  It isn't applied like a powder, but lightly - remember it is foundation!  The coverage is build-able by lightly applying and buffing and blending until you get the coverage you desire.

GloMinerals says this formula can be worn by all skin types.  It has a matte to semi-matte finish with a slight glow, but no sparkle.  Because of the little bit of glow, those with very oily skin may not care for it - they usually prefer a more matte finish.
