Well, it’s time for another mineral makeup review, and this time, it’s a review of Susan Posnick Colorflo Mineral Foundation.
Susan Posnick‘s one of the first brands of mineral makeup to come out in the market, so I was very excited to try this out and give my verdict in it. Looking at the picture, I love the portability as the Colorflo Mineral Foundation comes in a self-dispensing brush that you can just bring with you anywhere, without the risk of the mess and spillage in your handbag. This type of packaging is what my bestfriends have been asking and bugging me about, and I’m sure that the moment they see this, they’d grab it from me and never give it back! haha!
Anyway, I tried it during lunchtime today, and I pumped some product out to apply on my bare skin. The coverage is very very light, almost like a finishing powder that I had trouble building it up on my skin since my skin needed heavy coverage. After about 5-6 layers, all I was able to achieve was a light to medium coverage, that I still needed to whip up a separate cream concealer to conceal my problem areas. As for the finish, I could see a creamy, sheeny finish, that evened out the skin tone ( even if I couldnt see the effect since my skin was a bit challenged ) that can actually work as my…finishing powder! Truly!
To sum up, I could not really review the Susan Posnick Colorflo Mineral Foundation as a foundation for me, because it didn’t give my needed coverage. This would work great for people who have normal, or good skin, that don’t need much coverage, that they’d be able to appreciate a sheer wash of evened out skin or a more polished complexion because of its sheer coverage. It would really work better as a finishing powder for those who need heavier coverage, as the finish seems promising. With the M7 shade that I’ve used, I hardly saw any color because of the sheer coverage.
Just too bad that I couldn’t bring it with me when I travel as a heavy coverage foundation! That sure would take some burden off me! Haha!
I’d like to hear from those who had experiences with Susan Posnick’s Colorflo Mineral Foundation. Maybe it worked great for you, and I’d love a different perspective!
