Smink Loose Mineral Foundation

  • $2000


 

Everyone wants the perfect foundation, and its so hard to find the best one!...we want one that performs well, and also covers well (when you need it to), and one that stays on, and doesn't look obvious. In fact, you don't want it to look like 'makeup' at all! Well, here it is: perfection in a jar!
Smink's Loose Mineral Foundation is extremely lightweight and breathable. It feels undetectable on your skin, and yet it provides amazing, and very build-able coverage! It's like a magic 'eraser'. But, importantly, it never, ever looks 'cake-y' or 'powder-y'. Quite the opposite, in fact - It is virtually undetectable on skin! It's hard to describe but it's almost like it just 'becomes' your skin, it's that natural looking!
Smink's unique powder foundation contains a significant percentage of silk mica which not only provides a beautiful silky soft feel but which also gives a "soft focus" look by diffusing and reflecting light rays and thereby reducing the appearance of irregularities, texture and wrinkles. It does this while still appearing naturally matte!
Natural? It is 100% Natural, 100% Talc-free, and it contains zero 'filler' ingredients, that are so commonly used in cosmetics. And, as if you need anything else, it even has no expiry date, because it has an indefinite shelf life! 
The Texture? Even though the product is in a 'powder' form, it is not like regular powder. It's texture feels more like soft, fine 'clay', and yet is still unbelievably lightweight. Smink powder is also much less 'airborne' than other powders can be, so it is less likely to enter your lungs (although you should still try to avoid breathing in any type of powder). And the best feature about our unique texture: It is not at all drying, like many powders can be. The texture is, in a word, perfection!
Sensitive skin? Zinc oxide will give you excellent UV protection, and is also soothing and anti-inflammatory. There is absolutely nothing in our foundations that can irritate skin. On the contrary, these ingredients actually protect and benefit the skin! Smink makeup is a wonderful choice for people with rosacea or other skin problems. 
Prone to breakouts? I (Anna) break out very easily, but not with this foundation. There are no ingredients that will clog pores, and it is completely oil free! The anti-inflammatory properties of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide actually help heal break-outs!
Application: It is so effortless to apply, with a brush for a sheer application, or for more coverage you can use a sponge/beauty blender. A kabuki brush is also an excellent tool for a beautiful and flawless application. Hey, you can even use your fingers, in a pinch:) The application is always beautiful, regardless! Smink Foundation provides excellent application, excellent wearability, and excellent durability.This foundation does not require as much effort to apply as most traditional mineral foundations. No buffing is required, and an array of different brushes, tools and finishing powders are not necessary. This is partially due to the fact that our foundations are free of bismuth oxychloride, which is the main ingredient in most "traditional" mineral foundations. Bismuth oxychloride gives foundations a nice ‘creamy’ feel (and it's cheap, which is a big plus for a many manufacturers), but it is also a known skin irritant that causes breakout or even rashes for a significant percentage of people. It is also very 'shiny', or reflective and usually requires a matting agent to counteract this effect. We decided that we did not want this ingredient in our foundations, and instead we use high quality, silky-feeling micas to provide the nice, smooth texture without causing irritation.

The "G colors" are neutrals with golden undertones and the "N colors" are true neutrals with both pink and yellow undertones. They go from light (low number) to dark (high number).
