Tips and Toes Mineral Compact Review

Hey angels,
I’m so not a mineral makeup lover or user. But the mineral makeup business today is flourishing. So I also tried out mineral makeup for a number of reasons. One for being Non-Comedogenic. I already have tons of make up but can’t use them in such hot season so I went for a little shopping. A little overall coverage for my skin, and something to control shine in this hot climate we live in. well I ended up with Tips andToes Mineral Compact a Shingar product. I really wanted something that I could carry with me in my hand bag to the college and classes, and as everyone was getting mad for minerals and minerals, I also jumped in mineral and minerals haul. It comes in four shade selections which lean more towards the fairer, paler realm of makeup users. Mine is sea shell.

The box says:

My take on tips and toes mineral compact:
It is a lightweight and silky smooth with a super blend able formula. It applies like a dream leaving behind a flawless look. The formula isn’t pigmented but it manages to even out your complexion and works at creating a good working canvas for makeup. Although it has some seriously great features it sadly failed to become “the one” for me. I wasn’t so happy with the product when I went out in sun. I was on call for around 15-20 minutes standing outside the mall, after the call only thing I could notice was my touch screen wearing my makeup. I was disappointed to see it didn’t even stayed for few minutes in sun. But it did work very nicely in the night. I can use it only in winters I guess, or some night parties.

Pros of Tips and Toes Mineral Compact:
• Those with oily skin may find the joy here.
• Not a very costly one
• Gives very nice finished flow to skin.
• Non-comedogenic
• Mineral makeup is light, and therefore you can build it to whatever coverage you want – light, medium of heavy.

CONS of Tips and Toes Mineral Compact

• Like I said above, there were some not-so-pleasant side effects after a few minutes of wearing them
• Looks somewhat caked in hot weather
• No ingredients mentioned so I can’t say that it contains Bismuth Ox chloride and Mica or not.
• Both the above mentioned chemical not good for skin.

Will I buy it again? I will try the street wear one next.
