Thanks to an awesome contact at Estee Lauder, I got to try out their first mineral foundation before it hits the market.
The 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, I find the texture to be slightly thicker. It is very creamy just like BB creams and blends effortlessly into the skin. The coverage is light to medium and the best part is, once you blend the foundation into your skin, it becomes invisible! People can never tell I am wearing makeup when I wear this and unlike some foundations, I can 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 is a really good foundation if you are looking for something light and not a lot of coverage.
The foundation also comes in powder form – Nutritious Vita-Mineral Loose Powder SPF 15 Makeup – and both are available at all Estee Lauder counters and Esteelauder.com this month.
