|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.

Good to know - they also have a pure white base so one can mix the foundation lighter when needed.
