Having been a makeup artist for just over five years, I've worked with a lot of products. And I must confess...
Mineral foundations have never gotten much (or any) air time in my professional makeup kit or my own personal collection. In fact, I've low key hated anything mineral for years now.
Why? Because I've been scarred by past experiences with mineral foundations that were cakey, heavy and powdery, and left me looking dull and flat.
It's for this reason I didn't know what to expect when the new range of mineral makeup from cosmeceutical skincare brand Aspect came across my desk. But after trying the mineral foundation for myself with an open mind, like any good makeup artist would, I'll say it: I was WRONG.
Before we get into the nitty gritty of my Aspect mineral makeup review, let’s first chat about the range itself.
What is Aspect Minerals Mineral Makeup?
The tag line for this range kind of says it all: "Makeup that feels like skincare, skincare that looks like makeup."
Aspect Minerals is a collection of mineral makeup designed to offer buildable coverage, blend effortlessly into the skin, and diffuse the appearance of redness and discoloration with a flawless, glowy finish.
All products are formulated with an ultra-fine blend of skin-protecting minerals like Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Kaolin Clay and Mica, plus Hyaluronic Acid to give the skin that boost of hydration and Aspect's Signature Blend (an Aussie botanical superfood complex) rich in vitamins and minerals. So all the good things.
