Extra Virgin Minerals™ Compact Foundation
Very high quality
The first thing that struck me as positive about this product was the beautiful black matte finish packaging. It is very elegant and well made. So, when I opened it up, I didnt expect anything less. And I was NOT DISAPPOINTED! The cream is soft to the touch, goes on creamy, but dries quickly to a soft matte finish. The brush applicator was a BRUSH and not a sponge, and also very attractive and well made.
Now, as a woman of color, my complexion is on the lighter side and I ended up getting Golden Caramel. PERFECT MATCH. The color just seemed to disappear into my skin and leave a nice solid glow with minimal sheen. I also purchased the Extra Virgin minerals loose powder as an all over powder to wear over it and they both work flawlessly together

Best foundation I've ever used!
Best foundation! Applies easily and smoothly. Color is perfect. Does not turn orange on my skin, which is a problem with other brands. And best of all, no more breakouts! I'm definitely a fan forever.

Not for oily skin
I really like the body shop because it is cruelty free but this foundation caused my skin to break out. Also, I have very oily skin esp around the t zone and nose area and this product made me shiny within an hour. It probably would work very well for dry skin but definitely not for oily/combination skin.

Women of Color, BE FOREWARNED!
I was so excited to get this makeup. I love the texture and how smooth it goes on, but the color is OFF! As a woman of color, I've always had some difficulties choosing foundations but according to the color displayed on the site, this SHOULD have worked for me. I got a 405 so I think I'm going to go to the deepest color. Hopefully this works!
Women of color, get the color 1 shade darker than what you think would work for you!
