Simply put- we create products not found anywhere else!

I am a mother of three...I don't have too much time to do my make up. Since I am usually in a rush, my usual make up consists of foundation, eyeliner, eyelash curler and maybe mascara.

I was given the opportunity to review Ferro Cosmetics Ultimate Mineral Foundation OR their Radiance Mineral Foundation. I chose the Ultimate Mineral Foundation in  Light Beige.

 A bit (from the Ferro Cosmetics website) about the Ultimate Mineral Foundation:
Ultimate Mineral Foundation is our Prestige all-in-one product that acts as concealer, foundation, and powder in one. Flawlessly evens out complexion, perfection in concealing, buffs away redness, and completely hides blemishes so people see you’re your skin NOT your makeup! Ultimate Mineral Foundation never settles in lines, and actually diffuses, minimizes and reduces any signs of aging without an unflattering “mask” line. Natural clays from the earth absorb oils without drying or pulling moisture away from your skin, and vital skin nutrients like amino acids and proteins from pure crushed ocean pearls helps fight signs of aging, balances moisture levels and assists in keeping skin healthy.

Extremely water resistant and won’t slide off during heavy perspiration or even swimming. High concentrations of Zinc and Titanium Dioxide shields from harmful UVA and UVB rays, and also calms and soothes red inflamed skin caused from acne. Ultimate Mineral Foundation is especially good for acneic skin; offering full coverage as well as skin soothing benefits. Use with sponge, concealer brush, or wet to make Ultimate Camoflauge makeup.

INGREDIENTS: Titanium Dioxide, Oryza Sativa, Kaolin Clay, Zinc Oxide, Silica, Calcium Carbonate, Pearl Powder, Magnesium Stearate, Mica, Silk Powder, Iron Oxides

My opinion:
The Ultimate Mineral Foundation was light weight, and looked natural. The first time using it, I applied it with a make up sponge in the morning before setting out for the day. It was 98 degrees outside and I felt like I was going to melt. After sweating my butt off running errands for about 2 hours, I noticed my face still looked clean and dry and was not oily like usual. I was impressed! I have already swapped out my old foundation for this one. I have used it daily for about two weeks now. I have noticed less breakouts in the last two weeks compared to the weeks before.
For my budget, Ferro Cosmetics is a bit too costly.
