After watching tutorial videos on Sterling Minerals makeup, I had some hope that a mineral foundation would finally work on my skin. My skin needs a foundation to even out my uneven tone that has sun damage due to younger years. It has acne scarring and some wrinkles. I have always kept my skin under a doctor’s care, esthetician’s services, and have used very good products most of my life. I prepped my drier skin before using the mineral foundation. I tried both the brush method and the damp sponge (using the toner from SM) method. Neither way worked for me. My skin looked worse showing up lines, creases, wrinkles I don’t normally see without makeup or when using a liquid makeup. I imagine if one has smooth skin, the minerals would work beautifully for them and any slight flawing wouldn’t be detectable. Wish it had worked for me. I will say that the color Fiorella shade matched well on my light skin.
Hello Rochelle, We realize our foundations will not work for all of our ladies, and depending on skin type and condition, they may not meet your need. Without further detail on the products you use on your skin, it may be your moisturizer is not rich enough if dealing with dry skin or your moisturizer has different forms of silicone which will interfere with good blending and / or adhesion. Be sure to check your ingredient list for silicone and / or silicone derivatives, such as dimethicones, in your moisturizer and see if this could be the problem. Also if using the toner, this works great for pat setting your makeup, however, it will not moisturize and should not just be sprayed on and allowed to set. We always recommend a light pressing with your brush to smooth out texture. Moisturizer is also key for that smooth look, melding of minerals and adhesion. Please checkout our Foundation FAQ for more information and if you require further assistance, we would love to assist you.
Thank you for giving us a try and the feedback is very important to us.
