With so much great reviews and recommendations from friends, I’ve decided to try out Dreamworld Minerals, as I’ve been told that they offer really good coverage, and flawless finished looks. The problem was as I started shopping, I just could not quite pick my shade because I was confused with the shades, the undertones, and the names as well. With the help of a friend, I was able to narrow down my choices to Themis and Quan Yin ( and one which never reached me, my sister quickly grabbed it ), all in its heaviest coverage formula, Luna.
Quan Yin is a bit too light for me and can be worn by fair skinned, yellow toned women. Too bad I got a big pot of this – this goes to my mom. Themis is just right for me. Not too yellowish but it is yellow-beige, and for medium tone.
To quickly review Dreamworld Minerals, it provided medium, but buildable coverage on me, and it reminded me so much of J.Lynne’s foundations. The difference or the edge it has from the heavy coverage mineral foundations is that instead of matte, it provided a glowy, flawless finish, that reflects light and makes the face really flawless, with imperfections nicely covered. The coverage provided by Dreamworld Mineral Foundation lasted for the whole day, but for oily skinned people out there, you might want to carefully blot your face using oil absorbing sheets before retouching since I discovered that the Dreamworld mineral foundation, when it oils up, can transfer to clothing – well that’s just about me. It’s a bit sticky on the face when it oils up, but there’s nothing that you can’t blot – just be careful.
Overall, I’m still using up my generous sample jar of Themis, which is medium yellowish, and I wouldn’t mind using this as long as I sandwich it with oil control finishing powders.
P.S. If you’re having trouble getting your shade at Dreamworld, I think Ellie, the owner, is very accommodating and would help you match your shade as you send a picture. It’s worth a try!
