This is for the first time I am trying a foundation from The Body Shop and I have to give thumbs up to them for the incredible job they have done with this stuff.
If you have
Dry / Mature Skin-> love dewy makeup -> looking for an excellent medium coverage foundation for winters -> pick up The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation.
I tried this range of makeup some months back during my photoshoot with The Body Shop and I knew I had to pick it up when it launches.
Texture & Feel : Very emollient and creamy. Spreads like a dream. I personally liked using it more with foundation brushes than with my finger tips.
Finish & Coverage : It gives a dewy finish. I definitely feel the need to powder my face after using this. It is a medium coverage foundation and it is a very good coverage, imo. I have used this foundation HERE . You can use it every single day . It does not give that heavy , made up coverage. It looks quite close to natural. It does not get cakey or feels heavy. It photographs pretty well but I wouldn’t suggest to use it for flash photography. It has SPF 30 , which protects you from sun but also is not ideal for flash photos.
Shades Available : It is available in 8 shades and the undertones range from yellow, neural and pink. So there is something for everyone. The one I have is 202 natural vanilla, which has yellow undertones and is a shade lighter than my skintone. But I do bring it to my original shade by mixing a darker shade of concealer.
Staying Power : It stays all day long but I do feel the need to powder my face once during the day. It has a tendency to get shiny after a few hours but once you powder, it goes on pretty well through out the day.
Packaging : It comes in a pretty simple mess free pump glass bottle. The pump works pretty well and is quite useful.

If you have oily / combination skin , this is not the product for you. It is very creamy and emollient foundation, best suited for normal-dry skin beauties who are looking for dewy finish. I do feel the need to powder my face once during the day but other than that I found it quite impressive.
