Studio Gear Mineral Wet and Dry Powder Foundation #studiogearcosmetics
Use: After applying sunscreen/moisturizer, I applied the Revitalizing Day Serum. As I'm used to applying serums before moisturizer, I was a little surprised that the directions instructed you to follow this order; it's almost as if you're using the serum as a make-up primer. The serum seems very moisturizing and helps provide a hydrated foundation for applying the mineral powder.

I used the #3 Domed Foundation Brush to apply the foundation. The brush itself was soft and dense, although the domed shape didn't seem the most effective at distributing foundation.

I had selected the color Cream for the Mineral Foundation, and this seemed to be an okay color for me although it was maybe slightly too dark. This foundation provides light-medium coverage, and it's buildable, but overall, I found the coverage to be uneven and it would cake up in some areas. I used a damp Beauty Blender after applying the dry powder, and this helped to even out the coverage, but the BB dried out more quickly than if I was using a liquid product.

Verdict: My favorite thing about the Foundation is the matte coverage it provides. The humid weather we've been having this summer leaves me with oily skin in what seems like minutes after applying liquid foundation. I would prefer greater coverage though, but this is a great option for the summer.
