My Experience with Korres Wild Rose Mineral Foundation:
I trust Korres as a brand and highly appreciate the parameters which they follow while making any product, be it skin care or makeup. I have managed to try their skin care range, but was not so sure about the makeup, but I am so happy that it surpassed my expectations and passed my tedious test with great marks.
An amazing product!!! This foundation is way better than Bare Minerals and TBS ones. I found the mentioned ones a bit too chalky and not good for my combination skin as they tend to slide down my face after 3-4 hours. This one has better pigmentation, gives sun protection, blends more easily, gives natural satin finish, stays put the entire day with only one touch-up required. Yes, that’s just amazing, I never found a mineral foundation so long wearing. At the end of the day, I am happy with the results of this foundation.
I can easily say it is heaven-sent for irritated and acne-prone skin as it also heals the skin while providing full buildable coverage. I did get a few pimples, thanks to my binging sessions during our long glorious festive season and to my surprise the redness was gone in the very first day of application. It also claims to dim fine lines, wrinkles and even out skin tone, but I havn’t noticed any of that as of now. I can surely say that it feels very light and is a very fine foundation that can easily give full coverage if layered. I also love the fact that it has SPF 30, which is quite a nice factor of sun protection and makes my morning routine simpler.
Oily, combination and normal skin will love the effects of this lightweight mineral foundation, but drier skin might have some trouble with the foundation settling into the dry patches.
The shade swatch has a white cast due to the high sun protection in the foundation.
