Advanced Mineral Makeup was created by veteran TV and film makeup artist, Annie Mayo. I tried the Loose Mineral Foundation in Taylor (the lightest shade) and the Liquid Mineral Foundation in Creme Brulee.
The Loose Mineral Foundation contains no talc, starch, perfumes or bismuth oxychloride, so it didn’t irritate my skin or make me break out like some of the other mineral makeup brands do. It has an SPF 30, which is pretty impressive for a powder foundation that doesn’t look cakey or harsh. In fact, it looks quite natural. It comes in 3 colors: Taylor, Angelina and Eva. I’m definitely a “Taylor.”
The Liquid Mineral Foundation in Creme Brulee was too dark for me (“Cream Puff” would probably have been better), but I tried it anyway to see how it felt. It was a little heavier than I am used to, so even though it’s non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t make you break out), I would recommend the liquid for those with mature and/or dry skin. It also has a bit of shimmer to reflect light and give you a bit of a glow.
