BellaPierre Mineral Foundation – Cinnamon | Review

One makeup product that is the trickiest to apply during the summer months is foundation. Most medium to full coverage liquid foundations do not work well in hot and humid climates and end up clogging the pores. Therefore, as the temperature starts rising, I switch to mineral foundations, and the Bellapierre Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in the shade Cinnamon is my favorite.

This foundation comes in the form of a finely milled loose powder. I apply it with my trusty Real Techniques brush after using a primer and cream concealer on my skin. On its own, this foundation provides a medium coverage but I still feel that I need a little concealer for my blemishes and dark circles. A primer is essential to make the powder stay in place, but for the summers you can use a lightweight moisturizer instead. The product stays on my skin for around 4 hours after which I need a touch-up. The packaging is pretty compact and you can carry it around to conceal the shine throughout the day. The tiny holes allow just the right amount of powder to make it to the exposed surface but still be cautious as the powder does tend to go everywhere.

The shade Cinnamon is a yellow toned color that works perfectly for my skin tone. It offers a matte finish that keeps the oil at bay and lets my skin breathe even in the summer months. Spritzing a bit of rose water after applying the foundation also helps with making it sit better on the skin. I have added an image of me wearing this foundation on top of concealer for reference. It is also available in a bunch of different shades but is a bit pricey ($18 for 0.3 ounces). If you are willing to make the investment then this mineral foundation is perfect for oily skin and can cover small blemishes. If you like a more natural finish and do not want full coverage then this product is an excellent choice for daily use in the hot climate.

I hope that this review was helpful. You can buy the Bellapierre Mineral Foundation here.
