    Love the Light Pale Olive

    Posted by Heather on 31st Aug 2020

    It is so hard to find make-up for olive skin! I first tried the original formula and it was difficult to get it on smoothly and seemed too thick but the Lucy Light is perfect! If you need more coverage, just add more!

    Best foundation ever for my sensitive skin

    Posted by Stacey on 12th Apr 2019

    Lucy Light is the only foundation that does not irritate my skin or cause acne. (I've tried probably 20 different foundations over the last 10 years.) The "Light" formula has all the coverage, with just a few ingredients. Easy to apply with a brush, and sometimes I'll mix it with pumpkin seed oil (another fave) to make a cream/liquidy foundation (tip- try a shade darker than usual if you do this; for whatever reason it makes the shade paler). Mixed with the oil, I get the smoothest, healthiest looking skin I've ever had in my life. Also, the color "Pale Olive" is exactly what other brands are missing. I'm pale, but could never quite determine if I was cool or warm, or pink or yellow, and it turns out I'm olive, but just quite pale! I use the "Creamy Olive" shade mixed 50% with "Pale Olive" when I mix it with oil.

    Love this stuff

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Aug 2018

    This is the only mineral foundation I’ve found that matches my fair but yellow toned skin. The coverage is good for acne scars and it lasts a decent amount of time on the skin. I wish I could find a way to blend it better as it seems to leave blotches where it’s been applied but that would be my only complaint, and that may just be my own application problem.

    Note from Lucy Team:
    We are sorry you've been having some application trouble. Our formula can be tricky since a small amount goes a long way-like a full coverage foundation. Be mindful of the amount of powder you use and the brush you use. The cleaner the brush the easier and if the brush is too dense it will hold more product making it difficult applying a small amount at a time. Here are some tips from our website:
    You need to start with a small amount of Lucy Mineral Foundation and then add a little bit more if needed. Lucy Minerals Foundation is concentrated and you don't need to use as much. It is better to use a few light layers than to put too much product on your brush. Once you learn to use the proper amount, it looks and feels very soft and natural while giving wonderful coverage.
    To apply Lucy Minerals Foundation, dip your Foundation Brush into a small amount of minerals, tapping off the excess, and then buff all over your face in little circles. If you have dry skin, dip your concealer brush in a teeny tiny drop of Ambrosia Beauty Oil first and then dip into your minerals. Or use clean fingers. If you have larger pores, allow the minerals to warm to your skin for about 10 minutes while you are doing your hair or your eye makeup, and then blend again using a brush, sponge or clean fingertips. Your pores will appear much smaller after this blending. Then use some Finishing Powder to set everything.If you are oily, try using some Finishing Powder underneath your Foundation and then also over your Foundation and Blush. You can also checkout some application tutorials on YouTube just search for Lucy Minerals. We wish you all the best and hope this information helps.

    Best Mineral Foundation

    Posted by Araina on 25th May 2018

    The finish on this is so natural, I feel like it literally melts into the skin. The color is almost perfect for me depending on the time of year I mix Pale Olive and Light Olive together to get my perfect match all year round. Buildable coverage that looks natural not cakey and a little seems to go a long way. I love pairing this with the multi tasking oil as a primer and the booster as a setting powder

    Looks Natural

    People say this actually looks like healthy skin on me, despite that I have really awful acne. It stays on all day without vanishing from my nose.

    The only foundation I always come back to!

    Posted by Kara on 6th Nov 2016

    As a professional model and musician, I need a foundation that photographs well, has good coverage, doesn't oxidize, is long-wearing, matches my pale olive skin and makes my face look flawless on stage without appearing like a caked-on mask when I am talking to people after a show. It would be difficult for any single product to live up to all of these expectations, and Lucy Minerals is the only foundation I can rely on! I have tried high-end foundations from many different companies, including the very popular and award-winning MUFE Ultra HD. It could not live up to my Lucy Minerals!!! I will be a customer for life, and my only wish is that there would someday be a liquid formula of this foundation!

    I love Lucy's Minerals

    Posted by Laura Rain on 6th Nov 2016

    Hello, I am a professional singer. I wear the original foundation and finishing powder on stage, in photo shoots, and also for every day. Does not slide or change pigment. Long wear and non irritating. I love it! I wear Lucy's mineral foundation in Pale Olive and also light or medium olive depending on the season.

    Favorite Foundation

    Posted by JMC on 31st Oct 2016

    I love the Lucy Minerals foundations! I like the OCC formula, and I usually mix the Pale Olive and Creamy Olive shades, depending on the time of year and how pale/tan I am. I love how much coverage I get with a small amount of powder. I don't like the feeling of heavy foundation on my face, so I love that the Lucy foundation gives me a flawless coverage without feeling thick. Plus, now that I'm pregnant, I especially like knowing that I'm not putting chemicals or harmful substances on my face. I love makeup, so I'm always trying new things. But I always come back to the Lucy foundations.

    Just what I was looking for!

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Oct 2016

    I have been in search of a makeup that covers well and doesn't look painted on......... ladies and gentleman this is it! Great coverage that feels light on the skin and is versatile from light to full coverage wear. Easy to apply and there are multiple shades and tones to pick from. I am hooked!

    Not sure how to use it correctly...

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Oct 2016

    I really want to like this product. However no matter what application technique or tool I use, I cannot seem to get this to look decent on my face. I like medium to full coverage, but can only seem to get light coverage before it starts looking really heavy. I'm really stumped. I'm a professional makeup artist and have never had so much trouble trying to apply a mineral powder. I've followed all the directions, and have even purchased the skincare and the primer. I don't want to throw it out because I want to give it a chance but can't seem to make it work.

    Note from Annie ~ Please contact us through the website on our Contact Us page. I'm so sorry you are having problems. I would love to talk to you. This is very unusual. Thanks for your feedback.
