Our foundation has a very creamy consistency. It is water-resistant and holds up well in humidity. It is free of waxes, harmful chemicals, preservatives, fragrance, and talc.
Comes in a 30 gram volume jar with rotation sifter. 10 grams net weight.
I think this foundation is great, definitely a 4/5 (tones and coverage is fab although sometimes it can separate on the skin after a while). But I was surprised as there was nothing in the envelope with the pot - no compliment slip, no 'Thanks for your order!' As a customer ordering from the UK and paying a lot for international postage plus the product, I'd have appreciated the small effort! Thanks x
We apologize that you did not receive the excellent customer service you deserve as a Lucy Minerals customer. We have mailed you a personal letter that we hope you will accept as a sincere apology. We appreciate your business and hope you will continue to use Lucy Minerals.
Suggestion for the foundation:
Use the Finishing Powder on top or under the foundation. You can also try the Enhance in place of the Finishing Powder if you prefer. Something to consider as well is the formula. If the formula is not right for your skin type it will not last as long.
Thank you for your honest review. Have a great day ,

Being recommended Lucy Minerals on a skincare forum I frequent, I took the plunge and tried it out - after using another brand for almost 10 years!
- But this is my new Holy Grail of makeup.
I read about it going on "dewy" and "creamy", but could never really imagine how that'd work... but somehow, it does.
I have acneic skin, and I am pretty sure that this makeup is helping it out a little.
I love it so much that I rick paying more for import taxes and handling than I do for products (double or tripling the price!) because I live in the EU... I usually wait for a discount (if there's a 30% discount, I can buy ONE foundation without exceeding the toll limit - yay!), but at times (like now), I am practically running out of foundation that I have to buy it at full price... and cross mu fingers my package doesn't get controlled.
Lovely, lovely products which I'd hate to ever go without. The Cream is a pretty perfect match for my skin tone most of the year, but I also have one a tad darker for when I inevitably get a summer tan.
One jar of foundation (daily use) has lasted me about 8 months.
I bought this powder in the original formula. The color Cream is a bit light for me, but I purchased another color (Creamy Olive) to combine with it. I admit it took some time for me to get comfortable with how natural the finish is as I am used to full coverage "doll-like" makeup and I went through a few application techniques and tools before I was able to master it. What an incredible foundation this is! I first apply my Lucy skincare as directed and then use a synthetic rounded top kabuki brush to stipple on the powder and then buff it in. I found that this tool and technique works the best with this foundation for medium-full coverage. I let the powder warm up on my skin before I spot conceal, if need be. I also use this to conceal under my eyes and it works great. My favorite finishing powder for it is the Enhance which gives a nice subtle glow. My combination skin looks balanced, fresh and not the least bit dry or oily. Even though the color is a bit light for me, it's still very forgiving. I'm really happy with it and will likely use this forever as it gives me the natural finish I was aiming for with the coverage I need and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Absolutely fabulous product and cannot recommend enough!
This powder was great in hot, humid weather. After applying have to give it 10-15 mins to melt in and look like skin. stayed on in high humidity. Light coverage - have not tried to make it more as I prefer light coverage. I prefer light coverage but found other powders too cakey. This does not adn am thrilled with the look. Would highly recommend
Gotta review this--superior product and dope little company! It took me a few tries to get my exact color match right (thanks for the help Kristal!), so it's worth getting a variety of samples in different colors and experimenting before buying a full size. My perfect custom color is 1/4 cream, 1/4 snow white, and 1/2 pale olive (I'm NC15ish). This is just hands-down the best mineral makeup out there. I've tried almost all of them. I get the Lucy Light formula, since the whole reason I wear mineral makeup is for the simplicity and quality of ingredients. I found that the best way to apply is to stipple small amounts on with a flat-top brush (I use the Sigma F80), then use light downward strokes to smooth everything out. No need for any liquid products at all, except maybe a primer. This stuff isn't gimmicky or cheap--just beautiful, high quality, medium to full coverage, healthy makeup. I'll be repurchasing for sure.
Very good and long lasting coverage.
I have never had long lasting coverage for my dark eye circles and acne scars like I have with Lucy Minerals. I recently ran out of my Cream Foundation before having a chance to order more, so I went a few days without. My mom let me borrow her make up (a high end department store brand) until mine arrived. I was shocked at how poorly it covered my dark circles and scars. It felt heavy and cakey and wore off within a few hours. I am beyond pleased with the results I have with Lucy Minerals. I will be sure to order more before I run out next time.
I have tried so many mineral foundations, before finding Lucy Minerals. In their Cream foundation I have found the perfect color match and formula for my dry skin.
Whilst it does take some time to get used to applying Lucy foundation, it is worth persevering. It really is a lovely and creamy, full coverage foundation that has staying power.
I will be a customer as long as Annie makes this!
I have been alongbtime Lucy Minerals customer. The Cream foundation is my go to foundation during warm summer days here in west coast Vancouver. The mineral powder had fine and smooth texture, and feels creamy on skin and gives a sheer to medium coverage. A little goes a long way. My favourite face product always!
The samples last a long time and usually one sample from other brands doesn't even do half my face..so that's saying a lot! The colors are great and description listed helped me narrow it down. The cream seems to be best for my fair yellow/warm skin that has been hard to match in the past. Its creamy and goes on fairly fast. The price is awesome and worth the try!
