Apply to the face with the integrated foundation brush and blend.


Stylish and graceful with lusterless black cover. With a mirror in the middle and a split space for the flat brush.


It applies very easily with the brush attached with it, but sometimes, it leaves streaks on the face that needs rubbing with hands to get a streak-less finish.



My Take on The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Compact Foundation:

This is my first pancake foundation.  I do not know what made me buy this pancake style foundation, may be the clean and flawless look I got when the SA tried this on my face or just the name “The Body Shop,” which I hear on IMBB almost every day. Whatever be the reason, I love what I bought this time. For a beginner like me, it was quite difficult when I first tried applying it on my face by myself. Frankly, I got disappointed. However, I searched “how to apply pan cake foundation” and saved myself from blaming for having bought an useless product.  This one is for women with dry to combination skin.


When I went inside the heavenly shop, known as “The Body Shop,” I was sure I would not get out of it without buying anything. They have got these “limited edition” products in the shop, but the thing that caught my eye was the “Extra Virgin Mineral” products. It comes with a brush applicator rather than a sponge. The compact comes with 8.5 grams of product.

It contains both, a good coverage and SPF. The product is light and creamy. If you are searching makeup with very light texture and outcome and want to go with a natural look, then this product is made especially for you. I liked the applicator given with the compact, but I am not totally satisfied with it. As you can see in the swatch, it gives kind of a streaky effect, which I have to blend with my finger after application. It gives an immense coverage when finished with loose powder.

What I Like about The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Compact Foundation:

  • Good selection of shades.
  • Aesthetic and practical packaging with mirror and brush.
  • Gives a silky, flawless and radiant finish.
  • Does not clog, does not irritate the skin.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Moisturizes and protects my skin.
  • This velvety compact is best for dry to combination skin.
  • Applicator is not that good.

What I Do Not Like about The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Compact Foundation:

  • Dark or heavy makeup lovers might not like it as it gives only light coverage.
  • I could not guess its staying power as it was so hard to guess, it is almost natural.
