STREETWEAT STAY ON MINERAL FOUNDATION- MARBLE- SWATCHES & REVIEW


























9 gms for INR 600- 650 (not sure)

Company Says: - A mineral powder foundation that 'Stays on for 8 hours'

Ingredients: - Not Listed

























VERY SCRATCHY BRUSH




















My Opinion: - Mineral makeup is a rage ever since it came into the makeup scenario. I was using Revlon Mineral Foundation for sometimes but it was discontinued for some reason. That's when I found this Streetwear Stay On Mineral Foundation and decided to give it a shot. The powder is very finely milled and contains some finely milled shimmer in it.



                       I got the shade Marble as the SA swatched it on my hand and I chose it. It matched my skin tone totally. The packaging is similar to most mineral foundations. A plastic transparent jar/tub with a kabuki brush attached to its lid and a small round mirror on the top of the jar/tub. It is fragrance free which I like. The kabuki is very scratchy and irritates my skin so I use a powder brush to apply it.















































                   I tried applying it over my moisturiser/sunscreen but it was too difficult to blend. I somehow wanted to make it work, so again I tried it over my liquid foundation and it worked. Since this mineral foundation gives light coverage and is not buildable. It looks cakey and ugly if I somehow try to build up the coverage. It is very easy to go overboard with this mineral foundation. The presence of the shimmers gives a very artificial whitish cast which is much hated by all of us.



VERY FINELY MILLED POWDER





















ARTIFICIAL WHITE CAST


















                    Because of the above mentioned points, I used it as a loose powder to set my foundation. This mineral foundation oxidizes a bit even upon application over foundation. It gives a nice dewy glow to my skin instead of a matte finish. It stays on for 4 hours max in non-air conditioned environment but it stays about an hour longer in an air-conditioned environment. It makes my skin greasy and shiny in an hour. Its not worth the price it retails in, Rs 600-650 is too much for such a product. I had to use it up as a loose powder to set my foundation.






































Pros: -


*
Easily Available

* Didn't break me out or irritated my skin/break outs

* Little goes a long way

* Sets my foundation well

* Fragrance-free



Cons: -


* Expensive considering the quality of this Mineral Foundation

* Oxidizes to some extent

* Gives very light coverage

* Not long lasting

* Gives a whitish cast

* Difficult to blend



                I rate Streetwear Stay On Mineral Foundation 3 out of 5. This is a product I regret buying and I would request all you girlies to check it out first and then go for it. Or simply I recommend please don't waste your money on it.
