I must say that Jane Iredale wins by a landslide on being the best mineral makeup in pressed form. I heart heart heart Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base!
How do I love thee, my pressed powder? Let me count the ways. Like a lover, I can enumerate the traits that I like in it ( wow, someone’s being mushy here ! Forgive me, folks! )
1. First, when you see the person for a first time, let’s face it, we all check out their looks first. With the packaging of Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base, it is undeniably a true winner! With the beautiful, classy gold packaging, you’d be proud to bring it with you anywhere for touchups! It’s your bling! Hahaha!
2. Second, when the person seems appealing to you, you would want to get to know more about him/her. Would you want to “know more” about Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base? I’m sure you would because you would be far from disappointed! The coverage, for me, is a little bit heavier than the usual foundations that have sheer coverage like Bare Escentuals, but it’s not totally full coverage like Monave. It borders in between, and for some who need extreme coverage, Liquid Minerals and concealer are recommended. This further evens out the look, and could be the last layer of foundation to be used. It’s really really great to have this around because your skin would just look really creamy and flawless with this!
3. Third, when two people click, they sometimes get into a relationship. In a relationship, for it to be healthy and meant-to-be, it must make each participating party bloom. With Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base, it clearly brings out the best in anyone! I promise! I loveeee the way I look with it, like my skin is in its best with this.
Okay, after my analogies with love, I’d babble some more about it. I was sent a Pure Pressed Base in Golden Glow for review , and I was somehow afraid that it would be too dark for me. Turns out, I could wear ( and you could wear, too ) alot of shades here! I could wear Warm Silk and Golden Glow ( I’m a Bare Escentuals Light ) , like my other friend could wear Ivory and Radiant ( she’ wears Monave Caroline ), and so forth. The spectrum of these shades are very broad for we could wear two or three shades and still look great. I have no trouble whatsoever in terms of the coverage and finish, as I am clearly, overwhelmingly impressed. With regards to oil control, applying their Jane Iredale Absence Oil Control Primer prior to applying foundation to further control oil, and finishing it off with your trusty oil control finishing powder would be a great help -specially for insanely oily skinned gals like me. But some, actually use this as their finishing powder, which is okay, too.
Overall, no complaints from me. Clearly smitten with this baby.
