Perfect kit if you are unsure about your foundation shade. You will receive (6) TRY IT Size Foundations of your choice + (1) TRY IT Size Finishing Powder & (1) TRY IT Size Blush. $20 Value.

Lucy Minerals foundation is unlike any other mineral foundation you have ever tried... you will love the creamy consistency and how well it warms up to your skin!

When you are trying to find your correct foundation shade, use a small amount of mineral foundation on your jawbone and blend it in well. Allow the minerals to warm to your skin for 10-15 minutes before deciding if it is the right or wrong shade. Check your jawbone in the daylight to make sure the shade matches your neck. I think that it is better to use your Foundation to even out your skin tone, cover imperfections, and lighten up the area under and around your eyes. If you use your Foundation to give your skin "color" or to try to make yourself look tan, your neck and chest will look lighter than your face and you won't look natural.

Keep in mind if you play around with the shades and realize you were unable to find your perfect match with just one, you can order your custom shade full-sized foundation in your desired ratio of shades!

    Great option!

    Posted by Aimee on 17th Apr 2018

    This is a great option to figure out what shade will work best for you. The shade I assumed would be good for me, wasn't when I tested them out! How great to have not wasted a ton of money on a powder I couldn't use!

    Amazing!

    Super friendly staff! This was very helpful to choose the right color foundation! The makeup is great, it never makes me break out and is easy to apply. It is a very buildable foundation so the coverage can be minimal or fuller. I am very happy with this product and I will be ordering a full size foundation of the correct shade soon.

    Amazing Products

    Posted by Laura on 7th Jul 2017

    I used mineral foundation for years until I started to get some lines and larger pores. I couldn't find a mineral powder foundation that lasted, covered well, and didn't make lines and pores even more obvious. I recently decided to try some brands that I hadn't tried yet, and I'm so glad I did. This is by far the best foundation and setting powder I've ever used. It looks natural and lasts all day. This kit is great because you can choose a range of shades before ordering full size products.

    Great way to find your shade

    Posted by Jeannine on 3rd Apr 2017

    I am very glad I was patient and ordered the sample sizes instead of guessing my correct shade. My favorite was lighter than I would have chosen from the website. The coverage is so good, I need to adjust to using less product. I was too heavy handed at first. I will purchase a full size!

    Great way to find your shade

    Posted by Roxanne on 4th Nov 2016

    I purchased this kit twice before finding my "Summer" shade in Tan Olive. I think I may still need to tweak it a but I will go for that when summer comes back around.

    I am about to reorder what I am pretty sure is my "Fall/Winter" shade; I will be requesting a custom foundation in tan olive with a quarter soft beige. In regards to finding your shade, it's been my experience that the photographs shown on this website aren't accurate of the actual product - to me they seem much darker which is why I wound up purchasing a second try it kit. I chose colors that were way too light for me in my first order.

    When you test the foundation make sure you apply one light layer and let it warm up a bit (5-10 minutes), the foundation melts into your skin and looks so much better than when you first apply it, this is important - DON'T RUSH, you may not even need a second layer. I am a makeup rookie and honestly if I didn't have such terrible skin (acne scars, melasma, dry, and terrible texture) I wouldn't even wear foundation so I went through a serious learning curb with my application technique. I embarrassed myself a few times by not only choosing the wrong color but caking the makeup on so terribly thick, I almost cried when I went to use the restroom at a party and say my reflection in the mirror (yes, it was THAT bad). I actually gave up on Lucy, purchased another high end foundation and threw my Lucy makeup in my box of "maybe one days". I don't know why but I decided to give it another go.

    I moisturize well then I use a light layer of a light/medium coverage foundation just because that's what I have right now, I will purchase a BB cream when I finish with that. Like I said, my skin is seriously bad so the foundation alone doesn't work for me because it starts to look cakey (I use too many layers trying to hide my imperfections). I allow that to set then I apply a layer of Lucy. I don't buff like I do with other mineral foundations. This foundation doesn't look good on me like that. I use a kabuki and stipple the same way I do with my liquid foundations and a beauty blender (I use very little Lucy) then I allow that to set for 5-10 minutes. Sometimes I use another layer but usually I just add some extra to the places where I have melasma (which is almost everywhere). After that I use a little bit of their setting powder.

    Throughout the day, places where my skin is really dry like the corners of my mouth and nose, I have to blend out (that is probably the wrong terminology) but I don't even need to use more foundation. I literally take my clean finger and blend the foundation that's already on my face.

    The reason I can't give this foundation a 5 is because of what I just mentioned and the fact that this foundation transfers terribly. The coverage is AMAZING.

    Thank you Lucy Minerals!

    Wonderful Way to FInd Your Shade

    This is a review on the Find Your Shade Kit.
    This kit is a wonderful way to find your shade in the Lucy Minerals Foundation. I appreciated that you get six different foundation colors to chose from along with generous size sample jars. The size of the sample jars personally came in very handy for finding my custom blend shade!

    natural coverage and contouring!!

    Posted by Charm on 5th Sep 2016

    Medium shade skin with yellow undertones.
    I've been using BE minerals makeup for almost fifteen years now and have officially switched after trying this makeup out. I wished I found LM sooner. My skin doesn't get itchy when I start sweating.

    Find your shade kit is perfect, not for just finding your perfect foundation shade, but also testing out other shades that will match your skin for natural looking contouring. Love it and love the price! Your face is not one flat color and the price for the full jars will allow me to purchase 3-4 different foundation colors for natural contouring and highlighting.

    Surprisingly smooth, even cover

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Aug 2016

    Great sample kit before fully committing. Tried to compare with Everyday Minerals which is also great but a little too light coverage for me.

    Compared to Everyday Minerals and a couple of other brands I have used, Lucy Minerals gives the most even, smoothest, almost chemical-foundation like results. I was worried it might crease, but it didn't!

    A tiny con: It's difficult to find right shades and colors from the website pictures. I felt Lucy has reddish tones except Olive lineups compared to Everyday, but it's probably because of my skin tone (North East Asian yellow tone).

    Wonderful product

    Posted by Sara on 5th Jun 2016

    I'm new to Lucy Minerals and this is a great way to try the products and find your shade and formula. The amount of product in each jar is generous, which allows for several applications for comparison. I've been using a different shade/formula for the past five days, I think I've got it narrowed down but I have a couple to try yet. I am very impressed with all of the foundations - excellent coverage and my skin feels so healthy. It has also not exacerbated my acne or irritated my skin. I have used other brands of mineral make-up and this is the best that I've found. I will be purchasing full size once I decide on the shade/formula. The shipping was also very quick, thank you.

    Amazing

    Posted by Nora on 3rd Jun 2016

    I have warm, light to medium skin, with shiny t-zone and dry cheeks. I have been using mineral tinted moisturizers, bb and cc creams with broad spectrum SPF, and at the end of the day, my t-zone looks like an oil slick even when I am never under the sun for more than 20 minutes at a time. I was searching for sun protection minus the greasy appearance and chanced upon Lucy Minerals product reviews from green beauty bloggers and YouTubers. I always imagined powder products to be messy, would take more time and skill to achieve even application....OK, yes, it is slightly messier with a little powder somehow spilling out of the little jar, but the results are WORTH IT! No more oil slick and I didn't even sample the oil control formula. It evens out quickly with buffing. Since I am Asian, I have always been recommended to use yellow base but bisque melts into my skin almost as soon as applied, light medium with slight blending, and creamy bisque with a bit more blending. The blush included matte rose matches my flush perfectly. The order was nicely packed and delivered very quickly. I am wholly satisfied with the shopping experience and the products, thanks a bunch :)
