Loreal Mattifying Minerals & Natio Mineral Loose foundation

I am an enormous fan of mineral makeup. Why not? Its clean, it has a bit of UV protection, it calms the skin, it reduces imperfections after regular use, it doesnt clog pores, it looks natural if the right shade is found and so on.

I thought I'd try out a more economic brand that I know is environmentally friendlier than most bigger brands and chose Natio in Sunset. You dont need much, the key is to gently blend blend blend until your pores diminish from their regular size. Then the translucent mattifying effect and further poer reduction (my pores are like the moon's) is achieved using the Loreal product.

Comparing the two I might actually try out the Loreal mineral foundation loose powder next, as the loreal mattifying powder was alot finer than the Natio one, which means it gave a softer coverage. The Natio product gave a very natural and light coverage, which could be built up to quite heavy if I applied another layer.

One big hint when studying the ingredient list, avoid products containing Talc.

Skin prepped with Nivea Moisturising Sunscreen SPF30+...and a burn mark from my iron curlers  :"(

Mineral makeup and mattifiant applied.
I'm happy with the result. A few more layers concentrated on my burn mark covers it more but I could try out the Loreal mineral concealer soon. My skin feels comfortable all day and the doesnt smudge off.
