Up until now, I have not been the biggest fan of Mineral Foundation. I feel, because I am older and I am starting to show my age, that the Mineral Foundations just do not give a full coverage. When I was emailing Ferro Cosmetics about which products I should choose, they recommended I try their foundation. They said they had a lot of positive feedback about how good of a foundation it really is. I thought to myself, “Hmm, heard that one before!”
But, ladies here I am, and I do have to say I was very pleased with the coverage that the Ultimate Mineral Foundation provided. I do have to say that I am apply it with a makeup sponge, I don’t know if that makes a big difference or not. I just don’t get the whole brush application as I feel I should wear a drop cloth when applying. I thought that the color I ordered would have been a perfect match, but it is slightly too dark for me, so I do not know if their colors run a little dark or am I just paler than I think?
I was also lucky enough to try 3 different Eye Candy colors: 24 Carat, Dirt and Come Hither. All the Eye Candy products are gorgeous. The 24 Carat color almost seems like ground up diamonds. I have not figured the secret to making the mineral eye shadows stay in place and the Ferro ones are the same as any others I have used, but they do have an extraordinary sparkle to them.
The philosophy behind the company is what truly sparked my interest to try the Ferro products. Be sure to read Krissy Ferro’s story. She is a remarkable woman and her products are earth and human safe, which says a lot in today’s cosmetic world.
There are sample sizes you can order to try out which I encourage any and all to do. I think you will be happy with Ferro Cosmetics, regardless of whether you are a mineral fan or not. If you have never tried minerals for your face, Ferro will be the only one you will ever need. Trust me on this one.
