Mineral powder has the unique gift of refining our features and giving us that magazine pitch-perfect look, but finding one that fits is nigh to a mission impossible.
I’d heard great things about the Mineral Powder from Zuzu Luxe, which made me add it to my personal make-up bag, and here is my review of it!
The first thing that caught my eye with the Mineral Powder from Zuzu was that in the description, it’s said to work both as a foundation and a powder, which is a pretty impressive claim.
Now, having tried the powder, I can safely say that’s a pretty accurate thing to say.
Zuzu’s mineral powder acts as a light foundation, and I don’t think it would work well on its own for people needing to cover serious blemishes, but if you’re looking for a discreet touch-up on fine lines, it’s perfect.
I also really liked that it’s a very lightweight formula that doesn’t clog the pores, and doesn’t cause my fairly sensitive skin to break out.
Oh and speaking of skin type, I also noticed that the powder has amazing staying power.
With my proclivity towards oiliness, I usually have to touch up my make-up once or twice during the day, but the Zuzu powder didn’t need that.
My face looked good even after several hours of wearing the make-up, and that’s saying something!
This mineral-based powder comes inside this discreet and coquette-ish compact, with two layers, the top one containing powder, and the button one a light application sponge.
It’s cute and it’s small enough to fit into any purse, so you don’t have to worry about bulking up your luggage.
It also comes in seven different shades, which means it caters to a large number of people.
The mineral powder comes at a great price of $30, with a cheaper option once you’ve already bought the compact itself and only need a refill, and considering that you likely won’t need more than one application a day, this is set to last you a long time.
As always, I scoured online opinions, to track down any potential downsides to this product.
I’ve already touched upon all the great things about it (many of them I found repeated in other reviews, as well), so I’ll briefly take you through the downsides.
The darkest pigment only goes as far as a medium tan, the mineral powder might not be well-suited for dark-skinned users, unfortunately.
One other issue I found was that the powder tends to break up into chunks, especially when transported a lot, and that makes application a little trickier.
But other than that, glowing reviews all around!
If you’re looking for a light powder to use over foundation, or even instead of foundation, then the Mineral Powder by Zuzu Luxe is a solid option with great coverage.
Would you use the product again?
I certainly would!
Did the effect match the description?
It did, the powder can easily double as a lightweight foundation.
Would you recommend it to friends?
I have, and I would again.
