organic skincare: erzulie cosmetics cream to powder foundation

(originally published on leahwise.com)

organic foundationI discovered Erzulie while searching for organic skincare options on etsy and have been using their products for several months now. Recently, I purchased the Mineral Cream to Powder Foundation in Light on the seller’s recommendation. I have used it every day for the past few weeks, so I think it’s time to review it.

You should know before I start that I have sensitive, combination, acne-prone skin that gets very dry in patches during the winter months. I turned to organic skin care initially in order to avoid artificial fragrances, but there are so many other benefits (and there are so many great products) that I’ve stuck with it for additional reasons.

My rating: 4/5

Pros:

  • blends really well into skin
  • provides even, medium coverage
  • easy to apply
  • seems to last all day (at least when set with powder)
  • unscented
  • not greasy

Cons:

  • provided sponge is poor quality
  • a bit shiny without the addition of powder
  • texture makes it hard to maneuver inside compact
  • makes dry skin more pronounced due to nature of application

I used Erzulie Liquid foundation before trying this kind. I like the coverage this provides better, but the liquid is a bit easier to use. I use a nice quality thick sponge applicator for this instead of the provided pad. I knocked off a point due to the poor quality provided applicator and the firmness of the product. If it were a bit wetter, I think it would be easier to apply.

In conclusion, I will continue to use Erzulie Cream to Powder Foundation and will likely buy it again once I run out of my current supply.
