Lucy Minerals foundation swatches

Lucy Minerals foundation swatches

As I have been lamenting about the bastardly behaviour of EDM lots of people have suggested Lucy Minerals to me. So finally caved in and ordered the samples (the original formulation) in Fair, Pale Olive, Light, Bisque, Cream and Light Medium. Am quote pleased - Pale Olive seems to be a match. Bisque, Light and even Cream in it's yellowness seem to be quite wearable summer tones. 
Full sized foundations come in 30 gr per volume jars (10 gr net weight) and until midnight of July 18, without any shipping cost - so at the moment it's cheaper then ordering 2 two full sized EDM foundations (25% off starts at 6 products over a the EDM). 
Consistency seems to be medium coverage, nice and creamy. Overall - I definitely recommend. Ingredients list mark this as partly organic for it also contains some organic compounds:
Ingredients: zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, mica, magnesium stearate, iron oxides, allantoin, Apple Poly® polyphenols, trans-resveratrol, green coffee bean extract, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate.
One sample baggy was $1,5 and the entire sample haul cost me $11. Quite a lot for 6 little baggies. Apparently US customers get their samples in jars and internationals in  baggies.  Juicy Peach was the free gift and  - well, it's a blush with silvery shimmer. IMHO would be better without the shimmer.
 Swatches are made dry over bare skin and photographed in daylight. I have no idea why skin looks so pink on the pics.
Lucy Minerals foundation samples in Fair, Pale Olive, Light,
Bisque, Cream, Light Medium and blush sample in Juicy Peach
Good to know - they also have a pure white base so one can mix the foundation lighter when needed.
Olen EDMi sigatsemise pärast päris palju igal pool kurtnud ja mitmedki inimesed on mulle Lucy Minerals'i  mineraalpuudreid soovitanud. Tellisin siis testrid ära (kokku 7,59 eur) ja esimene mulje on küll väga positiivne. Pale Olive pole üldse halb, kui siis veidi hele suveks - talveks ideaalne. Bisque tundub kaelaga võrreldes veidi liiga oranž ja Fair on puhas hele-heleroosa. Pale Olive neutraliseerib punetuse ja üldse - roosakas rahvas ei peaks kandma tooteid, mis roosasuse veel rohkem välja toob - kes see ikka tahab Miss Piggy olla. Suur 30 gr per volume karp maksab 14 USD ja hetkel on sooduspakkumine: kuni 18. juuli südaööni saatmiskuluta. Kui üle 20 USD tellimus, siis viskavad tasuta silma v kulmuvärvi juurde (5 gr per volume) - peab vaid meeldima hakanud tooni ära mainima. Ma võibolla võtan ühe Pale Olive'i... mõtlen veel.

I just wish the face swatches would have looked better - they are a bit over-lit and therefore won't show the undertones... :S

I really like Lucy Minerals. Pale Olive has been my go to foundation for about a year now. :) I use the "Light" formula though, because my skin reacted to something in the original one.
