8…. Yes, eight.
That’s how many brands I tried. None of them worked.
Let me explain.
My son married exactly one month ago today, outside, during the hottest month of the year (August). #1) I’m a sweater. #2) I’m a cry-er. Both of these usually spell doomsday for my makeup! I wanted to get THE BEST foundation that would not only carry me through the heat of the wedding but also keep me from having to touch up. So, I went on a hunt.
I tried out every long-lasting, waterproof foundation imaginable… some from my local mart and other high-end brands that promised to deliver. The four in the background of this ‘Testimony Tuesday’ pic I shared with my team are half of those I tried, none of which delivered. Oh, they covered well and they lasted a long time, but I was not happy with how my skin looked after the application, not to mention the irritation and blemishes that followed. Not only that, I knew I was headed back to ‘Toxic Nation’ with all the chemicals and synthetic ingredients and fragrances (hence the blemishes)….everything that I’ve been working to eliminate from my lifestyle over the last year.
I finally landed on one certain foundation for the big day, but I was not satisfied with how it looked on my skin. It looked, and felt, like it had been ‘placed’ on my skin, sitting on top of it like a mask. It did not look or feel natural at all. PLUS….the chemicals. UGH.
If you’ve been following me, then you know that I do use Savvy Minerals foundation, and I LOVE it! However, at this very important time in my life, I doubted its capability to maintain coverage ‘under pressure’ and to stay put for the night. Why? I don’t know!
Since the big day, I have worn Savvy Minerals foundation not only during my everyday work life, but also to move my son and his new wife into their new home. We packed and unpacked and loaded and unloaded – all the good things that come with a big move, including sweat!! Savvy Minerals definitely delivered!! The description actually says it all, “… long-lasting, all-day foundation made with high-quality, mineral-based ingredients.” Need I say more?
The thing I have noticed with Savvy Minerals foundation is that the longer it stays on your face, the creamier and more like skin it looks. The warmth from your face seems to ‘bake’ it into your skin leaving a radiant, natural glow. Savvy Minerals foundation is also buildable, so you can go from sheer coverage to full coverage if you’d like, as it blends flawlessly! *smooth like buttah!*
The best thing about Savvy Minerals, in my opinion, is that it does not have any fillers, synthetics, or parabens, making it a great choice for sensitive skin, which I have.
I knew Savvy Minerals foundation was a great product and, through this process, I found out JUST how good!
✨ Lesson learned: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
