You're reviewing: Mineral Foundation - Medium Beige
- Excellent product Review by Jasmin
The powder along with the Antipodes brush for application make for a great combo. Any areas needing more coverage i first apply some powder with my index finger having first rubbed the tip around in a bit of powder in the lid. To minimise excess powder landing on my clothes, i tap the brush into a little powder then tap the brush into the lid where i swish the brush around to evenly get the powder onto the brush before applying. Not much powder is needed with this product for a great natural look, and because a little goes a long way, this product is economical. And no nasties!

- Nice foundation Review by Ally
I like this foundation. Coverage is easy to build - you can use a tiny amount or go for solid full coverage. It conceals well too - I apply with my finger or concealer brush and blend - easily hides dark circles and blemishes. I don't have the finishing powder but do use a natural primer and it lasts well into the late afternoon. If you needed full coverage for a full day, I'd consider the finishing powder, especially if you have oily skin or oil based skin care.

- Not as extraordinary as branded Review by Jacqueline
Thought this would be the answer for pale skin with thread veins. Noticed it was hard to determine which colour as no real guide but as Antipodes customer from way back went ahead. It does not measure up, is messy as bits go everywhere as you apply. I didn't like the expensive brush idea that goes with it either. Though I like its lightness non clogging quality price & performance is not compelling when compared to ordinary pressed powder.

- Lovely and natural Review by Melanie
I use this all the time, I have red patches on my skin and some little red veins and it covers really well. Other foundations have, after a while, sat in my pores whereas this doesn't, making the effect more natural. I do sometimes dip my finger in the powder and apply to the worst areas of skin and smooth it in and this helps maintain the cover up for longer I've found.

- Contains Bismuth oxychloride Review by Georgina
I purchased this product a few months ago, and while I didn't love it I continued to use it, mainly because it was all I had and was a really good colour match. I get a bit of acne and some skin sensitivities (which have been a bit more regular due to being pregnant) and after a while of using this I noticed that my skin was starting to look quite unhappy and unhealthy. I thought it must just be pregnancy but after 3 or so days of not wearing this makeup I noticed a dramatic difference in my skin! After a bit of research on natural mineral makeups, I discovered that this contains bismuth oxychloride (first ingredient in the list) which is actually known as a very common skin irritant - especially on skin like mine. It ended up causing my acne to not heal properly but to just hang around all red and irritated as well as making my skin texture uneven and as I said, my skin just looked horribly dull and unhealthy. So glad I figured this out as I had just been layering more and more on to cover everything up! I LOVE Antipodes and swear by a lot of their skincare products, but this just wasn't for me. Wanted to say something about it though to inform those considering buying it that may be sensitive to bismuth oxychloride.

Enjoy the benefits of a natural product combined with really good coverage. You don't need a lot for a nice, natural look, plus its lightweight. I am happy with this :)

I love this Mineral foundation! I actually think it has improved the appearance of my skin. Gives me a natural look and I don't need to put much on which means it will last me ages! Feels like I'm not wearing make-up, plus no nasties! Love it!

This is a really nice foundation, a little goes a long way and gives a flawless look to the skin. I like to either use it alone or over tinted moisturiser for a bit more coverage.

- I really love this product. I have... Review by Nicole
I really love this product. I have trouble with redness on my face but this product covers it really well. A tip I discovered recently was using my finger to apply to areas that need that extra cover so it goes on thicker - I then use the brush to cover the rest of my face.
