Thanks to an awesome contact at Estee Lauder, I got to try out their first mineral foundation, Nutritious Vita-Mineral Liquid SPF 10 Makeup, before it hits the market.
The Estee Lauder Nutritious Vita-Mineral Liquid SPF 10 Makeup ($33.50) is a mineral liquid foundation that contains Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Iron, Potassium, Titanium Dioxide and Pomegranate extract to help protect skin and erase signs of fatigue while creating a natural, radiant look. It is available in 6 shades and Intensity 2.0 is the right match for my NC30 skin.
While this is supposedly a liquid foundation, the texture was slightly thick. It felt very creamy like BB creams and blended easily into the skin. Coverage was light to medium and the best part? Once blended, it became invisible! No one would tell I was wearing makeup and unlike some foundations, I could also feel my skin breathe through it.
My only complaint would be the low SPF – come on everyone knows we need at least SPF 15! Other than that, this was a really good foundation, especially if you are looking for something light and not a lot of coverage.
Estee Lauder Nutritious Vita-Mineral Liquid SPF 10 Makeup also comes in powder form – Nutritious Vita-Mineral Loose Powder SPF 15 Makeup. Both are available at all Estee Lauder counters and esteelauder.com starting this month.
