Street Wear Stay on Mineral Foundation Review
Hello IMBB Cuties!!
These days reading a lot here about mineral blush, mineral foundation everywhere there is so much mineral all around. 😀 Every brand these days are out with their Mineral range of products. Faces Canada has mineral Lipsticks and Glosses too, Can you believe it? Everybody has become ‘Mineralophilic’ these days. :tongue: I was so impressed with the reviews that I read here on Maybelline and Revlon Colorstay that I wanted to lay my hands on at least one of these as soon as possible. Price of these brands was restraining me though. I went to my regular makeup shop and asked, if there was mineral range of products from any good brand at lower price. The SA introduced me to the newly launched Street Wear Mineral range which has blush, foundation and eye shadow. The shade that I possess is ‘Toast’, there are other two shades- Pearl, Ivory.
Price : Rs 575 for 9gms I got this after discount at Rs 547, not bad! :yahoo:
This is the Kabuki brush provided with it, not that soft. (I used my L’Oreal hair spa cream a bit to soften them, 😀 now it is fine)There is also a small circular mirror provided with it.
Ingredients: Not mentioned.
What the Company Says:
It is a mineral powder foundation that stays on for 8 hours.
Why Mineral Range of Products:
1-Mineral makeup is manufactured with minerals which are sterilized and pulverized into a very fine powder which is then mixed with a variety of natural inorganic colorings to produce a variety of colors.
2- Mineral make-up is non-comedogenic, which means it does not block the pores of the skin but instead allows the skin to breathe, mineral makeup is very appealing for those women with sensitive skin.
3-The prime ingredients used in mineral makeup are, unlike most makeup, inorganic, which means that bacteria and microbes cannot live in the makeup and infect the skin. The fact that the ingredients are inorganic also means that no preservatives need be included and that the makeup will have a long shelf life.
4-Mineral makeup of high quality does not feel like a ‘mask’ on the skin, unlike heavier chemical-based makeup. Mineral makeup has a much lighter, almost weightless character. Many women report that wearing mineral makeup feels like wearing no makeup at all. Mineral makeup also leaves the skin with a very natural radiant glow.
5-The best mineral makeups contain a number of ingredients designed for the purpose of improving the well-being of the skin. These may include a broad spectrum of UVA and UVB sun protection, as well as zinc, magnesium and some anti-inflammatories.
6-For women with oily skin, mineral makeup can provide an excellent solution. The usual chemical-based applications are very oily.
7-Mineral makeup is well-suited for hiding the skin’s wrinkles, crow’s feet and fine lines, due to the fact it reflects sunlight. It results in a very healthy look. The top brands of mineral makeup need only be applied once a day and are water resistant. Unlike chemically-based alternatives, you can even go to sleep with mineral makeup on.

My Experience with Street Wear Stay on Mineral Foundation
After I saw the price of this mineral foundation with a claim of 8 hour staying power, I bought it immediately. After I returned home, I searched IMBB and then several sites for a review of this product, but couldn’t find anywhere. Anyways, I am fully impressed with this product and liking its efficacy. Earlier I use to think these powder foundations to be similar to compact but from IMBB reviews I came to know the difference and benefits of Mineral make up products. I wanted to have some of these products, at last bought it. It gives nearly full coverage, refines my looks, and hides fine lines. It’s absolutely waterproof, I applied a bit of it on my face and splashed water on it, but it was still there, removed it with makeup remover.
