I have been a user of creme/liquid foundations for over 30 years, but was curious about how a powder foundation might benefit my skin--I was willing to trying samples anyway. I applied the more yellow-based calla first as a concealer of sorts. It covered my red & brown beautifully. And when I added a combination of Hannah & Amara over the base layer, my skin looked & felt luminous! I actually kept checking my desk mirror throughout the day to see if my coverage had faded, been absorbed, or looked blotchy…NONE of the above. In fact, I looked fresh & less "made up" than I do with liquid foundation--which I think is important for all women, particularly those of us "of a certain age." I am a believer, Sterling Minerals! Thank you!
