Poudre? Oui!

Vichy has come out with its very first mineral loose powder foundation, Aera Teint. Today I checked it out.

The major ingredients are zinc, copper, kaolin, magnesium, and listed under "may contain" are silicon, mica and bismuth oxychoride. The foundation is available in only four shades. 25€.

The pot contains 5 grams of product, and it comes with a kabuki brush. It is a bit stiff though. The lighting was not great so I could not see the coverage very well, but the foundation felt imperceptible. I might just give this a try when the weather gets hot and humid.

Another novelty that's coming up is Lancome's Tropiques Minerale collection.


With 90% of natural ingredients, Lancome claims to be offering a brand new generation of bronzer. The above is the Poudre Libre de Soleil Minérale Lissante. It has a perlized finish for a more luminous look. 43€.

There is also the compact bronzer with SPF10, featuring a nomad design.

You can use this with the kabuki brush. 36€.

Apparently, the mineral makeup trend is just starting in Italy!

Nice, I am a big fan of Mineral Makeup foundation. I also tried the Dior Nude line (also made from Mineral Makeup) and it was pretty good. Still, I prefer my foundation to be a pure as possible, so I will stick to brands who have little ingredients.
