Note from Annie ~ If your skin is extremely sensitive, you would do best with our “Lucy Light” which offers the same texture, shades and coverage without the added antioxidants. If your skin is oily, I offer two different Oil Control Formulas. One contains Silica and the other contains Calcium Carbonate. I have found that some women do better with one ingredient over the other. I prefer the Calcium Carbonate formula for my skin, but I have many customers who love the Silica formula. I only use the Oil Control Formula in the summer when it is extremely hot and humid. If I use it in the winter, it tends to cause my skin to become dehydrated. If you have combination/dry skin, you will probably do better with our Original Formula.
Be sure to keep your skin well exfoliated and then moisturize using a few drops of your favorite Ambrosia Beauty Oil mixed with water for best results. Our Ambrosia Beauty Oils help to balance the oil and moisture content of your skin and are the perfect primer for Lucy Minerals Foundation.

    Try it sizes

    Posted by Jo on 16th May 2024

    I tried the ones with oil reduction, since I live in a humid climate and have an oily T-zone. They worked great at keeping the shine down. I was pleased with the try it size containers - I have enough to wear it several times, in different circumstances and lights, to see how I like it. I tried a sample from another brand and received a little foil-lined envelope with a light dusting of the mineral makeup stuck to the insides. Literally, I couldn't shake any out. I went back here and ordered a full-sized makeup after giving my trial Lucy makeup a several day trial.

    Lucy Light is a Life Saver

    Posted by Courtney on 16th Mar 2023

    I have extremely sensitive, acne-prone, dry skin that I've struggled with for 20+ years. Nearly every foundation and skincare product I've ever tried has caused irritation or breakouts. I was extremely nervous to try a mineral foundation after having had bad experiences with others in the past. Enter Lucy Light... this is the best foundation I have ever used on my skin. No breakouts, no irritation, no bumps or itchiness. I've so far used this without a primer or finishing powder, but it manages to last all day. Normally foundation separates on my skin and feels gross and oily by the end of the day-- not this one! It looks a bit powdery when it first goes on, but quickly warms up and settles into a creamy consistency that gives my skin a beautiful healthy glow. To cover blemishes, I tap a bit of powder on, let it sit for 5ish minutes, and then pat it down lightly. Works like a charm. I never thought I'd find a foundation that works for my skin. Thank you Annie + Lucy Minerals for creating this HG foundation!!

    Great Way To Try Different Shades

    Posted by Jenny K on 12th Jul 2022

    I absolutely love Lucy Minerals foundations. I have ordered several of the smaller sizes to make sure I have the correct shade. These sizes are also great for travel if you are trying to cut down on what you bring. The powder just melts into my skin and gives me a flawless look. My skin has never looked better, even my esthetician has commented on how great my skin looks!! Love these products!!

    It's a must

    Posted by April R on 30th Dec 2021

    So I bought this bc my daughter and I suffer from acne, not only did this clear, yes clear my acne, but it actually has good coverage and blends pretty well too. I'm gonna repurchase in a full size and customize our color. I took off one star because if you have a dry patch or let's say a little scab on face it kinda clings to that so it can be tricky if your skin is dry but other than that this is a great great foundation

    Love it

    I ordered several sample shades for my daughter. She is 13 and has been wanting to wear makeup for a while. I wanted her to have something good for her skin. Medium matched her perfectly. We already ordered her the full size kit with the brushes.

    Great foundation. Love the sample size

    Posted by Sara on 2nd Jul 2020

    This is a beautiful foundation and I love that I was able to order several different samples to find my best shade and formula. The foundation goes on so nicely and doesn’t make me itch like other mineral foundations. Will definitely be buying a full size! The finishing powder is lovely, too. Fast shipping and my items were packaged so nicely.

    Always Happy!

    Posted by April Larson on 25th Aug 2019

    I've been out of my Lucy Minerals for like 2 weeks. I had to use my old L'oreal foundation in the mean time...omg was I relieved when I finally was able to re-order Lucy Minerals. Granted the liquid L'Oreal takes less time to apply-BUT lord did I regret having to use it. It drew attention to my crows feet big time, and made my face break out, and made it look dull. Today I put my Lucy Minerals on and hello fresh looking, even cute face that should be starting to heal now!

    where have you been all my life! I searched low and high, at times spending $60 for the best foundation. I tried them all-from sephora, Ulta, Mac, Macys, you name it----they all broke me out or did not cover or was too darn dark for my pale white skin :( I found Lucy Minerals online by chance, ordered a few samples and LOVE IT! This stuff does not break you out at all, I'd say the coverage is pretty good for redness and healing blemishes (if you have a open pimple it doesnt really cover BUT using this you should experience less pimples) it does not feel heavy, doesnt cake (unless you maybe glob it on with tons of other products) and if it starts to budge through out the day,all you do is use your buffing brush, buff the area, and done-no need to add more! It is nice to wrinkles too. I used this on my teen who is suffering from small acne bumps and this gave her a nice look and I dont feel bad putting it on her face because its a very clean product! Do yourself a favor and try this!

    The foundation was very drying to my skin. I do not have dry skin. I used two moisturizing products before applying the mineral foundation and within an hour my face felt taunt and dry. The color "fair" was perfect for my complexion however.

    Note from Annie - I'm so sorry you had this experience. We recommend prepping your skin with a few drops of any of our Beauty Oils. You can mix a few drops of oil with water in your hands and pat on. By doing this you are making your own moisturizer that is free of waxes, emulsifiers and preservatives.
    We have found that some commercial moisturizers and primers don't do well as a base for Lucy Minerals and can make the skin feel uncomfortable.

    I’m so glad I finally tried this out!

    Posted by Kassi on 2nd Jan 2019

    I’ve been wanting to try Lucy Minerals for quite some time and I finally ordered a sample pack a couple months ago. I wasn’t sure what shade I would be so I ordered several similar shades. It turns out the Fair shade is a good match for my neutral warm skin tone with freckles. I’m extremely happy with the foundation, my skin looks the best it has in years I think. And it’s so much easier to apply and deal with than the thick liquids I’d been using before. And the few times I’ve fallen asleep with my makeup on, it was no big deal at all! I will continue to use Lucy Minerals for as long as I wearing foundation.
    I bought the original formula in the shade Fair.
