Joppa Minerals: HG! Must Read!

FINALLY!

I found a foundation that provides me with:
- full coverage
- matches my very hard to match skintone (light olive)
-good price
-great quality
-has very good staying power
-doesnt oxidize

I LOVE THIS foundation. I searched high and low for something, anything to match my light-olive skin tone. After all this searching, i have come to notice that there are very very few foundations out there and brands that make foundations for olive skin tones. Everything i tried, was either, pink, too light, too yellow or too dark.

I found out about everyday minerals. I loved it because it matched me perfect (shade: light olive), but it hardly stayed and the coverage was light to medium at best. They changed their formula and i hate it. Gave me cystic acne WHILE i was medication for it.

Joppa Minerals is amazing!!! I have several post acne scars/marks on my cheek. I got the sample of the shade Light #3 in full coverage formula and its covers them all up without using concealer! i was ecstatic! Oh yea, i am very makeup illiterate. I dont know how to blend and do the fancy stuff like contouring. SO i needed something quick and fool-proof. This is it ladies! I use my everyday minerals Flat Top Brush to apply my Joppa Minerals and finish it off with e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder and spray it with e.l.f. Studio Makeup Mist & Set. It lasts OVER 8 hours. Wonderful!!!!

  2. Great blog! I stumbled across it when I was looking for a match for Bare Minerals Golden Medium in a different brand, which led me to NC25 as a similar shade, and from there I found your blog. I consider myself light yellow/ olive, and went to the MAC counter and NC25 is an exact match. Now I am experimenting with your other recommendations, and plan to order Joppa minerals (I'm not thrilled with the texture of Bare Minerals). After a lifelong struggle to find a good makeup match, and winding up looking pasty-faced or orange if I ever took the advice of the women staffing the makeup counters, I feel hopeful!
