Ive mentioned earlier that Pure Anada is simply heaven-sent because this mineral foundation not only is very much full in coverage, it also just seems to make pores look nonexistent! It’s so flawless that it was a real heartbreak for me when I couldn’t get my exact match with it.
A few days ago, I paid a visit to my friend and co-mineral makeup addict Nikki to try a pot of foundation that seemed too light for her, whose shade was Medium Golden. Upon hearing that name, it seemed like the perfect shade for me since well, my shade was Light to Medium, but I’ve taken a liking for darker shades since I wanted to retain my nonexistent tan, and my shoulders are darker than my face anyway ( that makes me get away with darker or lighter shades ). So, I went ahead and bought her pot of Medium Golden to try out.
With the previous shades that I’ve tried, they were too brown or too light on me that I had to tweak shades to be able to achieve my desired shade. I’m not a big fan of tweaking colors since I’m always on the go, so it’s really comforting just to have one shade, in one pot to use for everyday. As I tried Medium Golden by Pure Anada, the tone of yellow was just right on me, it wasn’t brown on me, it was just a medium-yellow tone on me that was just right. As for the shade, this is definitely for those who use medium shades like Monave‘s Saturnina or Bare Escentual‘s Medium Beige ( with golden undertones ). With my paler valor this season, I’ve switched back into being a user of light-medium shades, so this was a bit dark on me. But that does not mean that I won’t be able to use it because summer’s not so far away! In fact, I still wear it nowadays whenever I feel like I want to look tanned. Totally works because of my tricky arms ( which are tanned all year )
To sum up, I’m so so glad that Pure Anada‘s coming up with yellow tones in their foundation because the first few formulations were more of brown. I’d love to see them come up with more yellow tones, and more olive tones as well! The brand could use a wide variety of shades because the quality of their foundation is really promising.
and yes, this is a major rave *wink*
